The Dirt: Lincoln County OHV Trails



Lincoln County offers a web of trail systems for all types of OHV fun, with numerous routes through washes and valleys, along forested ridgelines and through sagebrush steppe habitat. The county is home to Basin and Range National Monument, four State Parks, multiple ghost towns, and spectacular vistas and geologic wonders.

The Northern trails offer access to the Wilson Creek Mountains and opportunities to explore Echo Dam and Spring Valley State Parks, Panaca Hills and the Basin and Range National Monument.

South of Caliente, there is a large network of interloping roads in the area and most are signed by the Kokopelli OHV club based out of Mesquite Nevada. The signs provide guidance to get travelers from Caliente down to Mesquite and back using roads suitable for a full-sized 4wd.

Some roadways are passable by passenger vehicles, but rugged and changing road conditions may require 4-wheel drive, high-clearance vehicles. Depending on weather conditions, some routes may be impassable at certain times of the year. Check with local land managers for current conditions and closures.


From Las Vegas, travel north on Hwy 93. See maps for trailhead locations.
