Sacramento Pass has a newly developed campground with OHV trails departing South towards Great Basin National Park. Multiple trail options exist with many gravel aggregate, graded roads.
Day trip options include NF 453 south of Sacramento Pass in Spring Valley. Staging options exist in a large gravel parking area off Shoshone Rd. This rocky trail climbs to Mt Washington in Great Basin National Park. Expect steep switchbacks and loose rock but the first 4.5 miles are passable in a Full size 4x4. After the old Mining area, continue southeast where the trail width grows limited.
Camping is available at the Sacramento Pass Campground managed by the BLM. The shared-use site includes limited amenities including pit toilets, shade structures, and equestrian area.
From Ely Nevada, head South-East for 50 miles on US Hwy. 50 to the Sacramento Pass trailhead.

Enjoy the Sacramento Pass area by staying on existing trails and admiring resources without touching them. Take out everything you brought with you. Always wear protective safety gear, and never operate an OHV under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Be considerate of equestrians and all other trail users.
