A soon-to-be-marked ATV recreational trail system connects 135-year-old mining roads winding through five ghost towns and by several historic mines accessible by turning east off US Highway 93 approximately 38 miles south of Wells.
An old west enthusiast’s dream, Spruce Mountain is literally covered with mine remains including ore sorter towers, ore cars, rusty smelters, mine shaft air pumps, water systems, and log cabins of all types. Miners found ways to haul huge boilers and machinery up to the seven and eight thousand foot levels with sixteen-mule teams. It is one of the best ATV rides in the State of Nevada. Please leave it as you found it, don’t take any artifacts.
