Other Names

Bonnie Springs, Spring Mountains, Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest, Rocky Gap

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest is less than an hour away from Las Vegas and offers several rugged 4x4 roads and some secluded primitive campsites.

The trails are wide and are mostly hard pack with occasional sharp rocks, making this an ideal place to explore in a Jeep or ATV. Vegetation ranges from scrub brush, juniper and bristle cone trees, offering some shade. There are no services so come prepared.

The trails are open year-round but the best time to visit is during the spring and fall. During the summer this area is generally around 20 degrees cooler than the surrounding region, making this a good choice to get away from the summer heat.
