Pilot Peak

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Leppy Hills, Pilot Creek, Bonneville Salt Flats, Silver Mountains

Last Known StatusOpen

Just a short drive from West Wendover, Nevada offers ATV riders around 50 miles of hard packed gravel roads that form several long loops. There is no single track or challenging terrain but the trails are mostly wide and easy with nice views of Leppy and Pilot Peak, making it a good choice for beginners.

The trails are open year-round but the best time to visit is during the spring and fall months. Vegetation is sparse but the area offers scenic views of the Silver Mountains, Pilot Valley and the famouse Bonneville Salt Flats.

There are no services in this area so bring your own supplies. For those looking to guided ATV tours check out Intermountain Guide Service.
