Elko is situated on the Humboldt River halfway between Reno and Salt Lake City. Interstate 80 traverses Elko County, making it a convenient destination if traveling by car. Making your way to Elko you have several choices by air, car, train or bus. Elko county is the sixth largest county in the United States, consisting of 17,181 square miles, as big as five of the New England states plus the District of Columbia.

With a population of around 25,000, the city has all the amenities one could need. This area of Nevada has many outdoor activities within a short drive. The mountains, lakes, and rivers around Elko offer numerous recreational opportunities. Among the wide open spaces can be found spectacular mountain ranges and canyons suitable for picnicking, hiking or more serious outdoor adventures.

With two spectacular wilderness areas and thousands of square miles of open space, Elko County offers limitless outdoor recreation opportunities including hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, camping, golf, wildlife viewing, backpacking, boating, fishing and ATVing.

The Ruby Mountains, which have been described as Nevadas Alps, provide the most breathtaking scenery. Hiking trails are suitable for all skill levels, from the family-friendly Nature Trail to the 40-mile Ruby Crest Trail. Trails for hikers and horseback riders lead over Liberty Pass into the Ruby Wilderness, with its clear alpine lakes and panoramic views.

Three-quarters of Elko County is public land, which gives wildlife such as mule deer, antelope, mountain goats and bighorn sheep plenty of room to roam. The hunting season offers tag-holders a shot at big game, as well as unusual birds such as chukar and Hungarian partridge, Sagehen, Quail, Dove and the illusive Himalyan Snowcock.

This parcel is located just far enough out of town to give it the land the feeling of your own ranch, but close enough to amenities that you do not have to travel great distances for services.
