Alt Names Parump, Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, Humboldt-toiyabe National Forest, Mt. Sterling, Cold Creek, Wheeler Pass, Nye County
Last Known Status Open

Located on the outskirts of Pahrump, Nevada this large area features miles of desert trails ranging from 2500 feet elevation to tree shaded trails at over 7000 feet. The trail system ties into the northern area of Cold Creek.

The trails mainly consists of sand and gravel washes plus rocky double track and wind through various sage and scrub brush at lower elevations but eventually changes to a bristle cone pine forest.

Services in town, including several RV parks, are in close proximity to the trails. There are also established primitive trail heads available, some at high elevations. Nearby McWilliams Campground and Fletcher View Campground offer shaded RV sites but there is no direct access to the OHV trails.
