Bullfrog Historical Mining District Loop
A great day trip out of Beatty is to follow the Bullfrog Historical Mining District Loop, which is approximately 43 miles in length. Trails are primarily mining and 4WD routes that loop around the region, through the Bullfrog Hills and Bare Mountain. Visitors will see various historic mine sites, unique geologic formations, and enjoy a stop at the historic town of Rhyolite.
The main trailhead (Stop #1) is off of Highway 95, on Fluorspar Canyon Road. Several additional vehicle staging areas exist to the northeast of Beatty off Highway 95.

Station #1, Fluorspar Canyon Road, is approximately ½ mile south of the town of Beatty off of Highway 95.
