Trail to Jacob's Ranch
A very neat trip over two mountain passes through some rugged desert landscape. Travel through 2 states and see the old Jacob's Ranch, Whitney Pocket, Lime Kiln Mine and much more. Thanks again to "Bud" Leland Sanders for this report.
Taking a break!
There are so many trails and roads in the desert in this part of Nevada, which one to take? Here's one that you may want to check out and visit some great scenery and an old ranch to boot. This trip starts in Mesquite, NV and returns to Mesquite. Although mostly in Nevada this trip is also in the Arizona Strip in Northern Arizona. This is one trip you won't want to miss out on. Photos, maps and GPX tracks provided. Map below.
