PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

10 acres of land for sale in Montello, Nevada by Wendover in the lower foothills of the Pilot Mountain Range with beautiful views! It's about 2.5 miles from the Utah state line, 2 hours E of Elko and 2.5 hours W of Salt Lake City in Elko County. Rural off grid property zoned for a home, cabin or RV with antelope and wild horses roaming!

All of the photos were taken about 1.5 miles SW in October 2014 in the early evening making for a beautiful sunset over the Toano Mountains to the west! That's the closest I have been and I believe you can see this property looking NE towards the Pilot Mountains in images #12, 13, 28, 50 & 54. The image numbers are at the top of the photos. The property looks to be right before the tree line starts in the foothills. I don't see anybody this far up in the foothills yet so plenty of privacy in the middle of nowhere!



The property sits about 8.5 miles SE of Montello as the crow flies off Pilot Road, the main graveled road thru this part of the valley. There is a bladed dirt road running along the section line 30 acres to the north and another dirt bladed road 30 acres to the west. The one to the north has neighbors living along it about 3/4 of a mile NW and looks to be the more traveled road out here. The vegetation is fairly low and you probably could drive it in a truck but plan on bringing some cowboy boots if you're driving a car. It looks to be about 5.5 miles of dirt road back to the graveled road. There is a dedicated easement surrounding each parcel for ingress and egress to build the road the rest of the way.

This part of the valley close to the Pilot Mountains and Pilot Peak is definitely the more popular part of the valley to live in. I do not see any power close by so alternative sources of power would need to be considered like solar. It was once part of the large Gamble Ranch and it is open range land.

From the NE to the SE is a long view of the Pilot Mountains which are only about 4 miles away and so close by you can see the trees in her hillsides. At the north end is Rhyolite Butte, a fascinating rock that sits at 5,965 feet. When you get up close she’s cool to look at and shoots straight up in the air. To the SE is Pilot Peak at 10,716 feet. She is the tallest point in the range and my oh my does this a pretty view of her.



Across the valley from the NW to the SW are the Toano Mountains and you can see the trees filtering down her mountainsides! I frequently come across hunters hanging out on the other side of the Toano Mountains and there are a few passes thru the mountains to get over there.



I have explored the west side of the Toano Mountains and it is miles of jeep trails to explore with antelope running around. I've seen hunters coming out the canyons on several occasions. Apparently there are elk out there although I have not seen them myself but in October 2014 we were stopped by a hunter with a quad asking if we had seen any elk. He said they liked to hang out in the mountain just across the valley to the west. He also commented on a few people that had improved their properties on the west side of the mountains.



This land was once part of the old Gamble Ranch. You can tell this by looking at the parcel map link where is says "gamble district". This was split up many years ago but there still is the old ranch to the north of Montello. It is a beautiful drive up to the Gamble Ranch and the road takes you on an incredible drive through a narrow fertile valley with gorgeous crops growing along the river! There is a dedicated easement surrounding all of the parcels for ingress and egress so you have the right to put in the road to your property and cross other easements to get to yours!

The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) map shows that there is 640 acres (1 square mile) of BLM land 30 acres to the N and another 640 acres 30 acres W. Each square on the BLM map equals one square mile. For more information on BLM land you can visit BLM.gov.

A few locals educated me about how sacred these mountains were to the natives who lived here many years ago when we stopped in for a bite to eat at the Cowboy Bar Cafe in 2012. They told me that the Pilot Mountains, Toano Mountains and the valley between is filled with arrows, old sewing needs and lots more remnants from those who lived here many, many years ago!

Pilot Valley is the very first place I ever saw a herd of wild horses! They were so stunning – standing there watching me across the valley – tails blowing in the wind! I love my job - TYG!



In 2013 we came across some people out exploring on a side by side just N of Montello. It was a family with a young child with them and they said they were out shedding. I asked what shedding was and learned that they were collecting antlers from the antelope and others that had shed them...ya ok I got it – fun photo below! : )



In 2012 I drove around the Pilot Mountains and included several photos and a video of it in the additional photos area. I found deer, elk, antelope, rabbits, a mirage on the Great Salt Lake Desert, and the pink, orange and purple sunset over the Pilot Mountains! I am not sure what's more stunning, the way the dry salt flat looks like real water or the stunning elk! Loved it!



This is a very rural and remote valley well off the beaten path with a few people scattered up and down it and with the town of Montello, population 138, being the hub for the valley. It offers a gas/mini grocery store, post office and restaurant. I don't ever recall NOT seeing an antelope when I visited this valley and I have seen wild horses roaming out here as well - absolutely stunning when you see them for your first time!

Elko is about 2 hours to the west where you will find a hospital and major shopping. Wendover is a larger town to the SE about an hour on Interstate 80 and people in this valley commute there for work as well as groceries. There is also a mine that has been expanding its operations along I-80 to the S.

It sure looks like a pretty place to hide away from the world and watch the snow on the Pilot Mountains and sunsets on the Toano's! I don't see anybody this far up in the foothills in this area yet so plenty of privacy! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

Elko County Montello Area Photos

All of these photos were taken on our journeys to the small town of Montello, Nevada and Elko County!

Located in NE Nevada near the Idaho/Utah/Nevada state lines, Montello is a small community but offers a gas/mini grocery store, post office and restaurant.

In January 2015 I spoke to Elko County Public Works Dept and was told they were putting in a metered water station in Montello where you can get drinkable water to haul. The county is in charge of it and access is thru a key pad with a pin # for a monthly fee. You can contact them for further information.

Wendover is a larger town to the SE on I80 and people in this valley commute there for work as well and groceries.

The big town of Elko is about 1.5 hours to the west where you will find a hospital and major shopping. The population of Elko County is over 52,000.

The Great Salt Lake sits on the other side of the Pilot Mountains to the east and Salt Lake City is about two hours away. Reno sits on the other side of the state.

The valley is surrounded by two mountain ranges with Pilot Peak to the East and the Toano Mountain Range to the East. The elevation of Pilot Peak reaches up to 10,716 feet.


A video I made of my drive around the E side of the Pilot Mountain Range and the Great Sale Lake Desert in June 2012. It was filled with elk! Incredible!




Elko County is located in northeastern Nevada, 295 miles east of Reno and 237 miles west of Salt Lake City. With 17,135 square miles it is one of the largest counties in the USA and is the heart of NE Nevada. A book listing American towns with the highest quality of life declared Elko, Nevada, "The Best Small Town in America." It is a small city, and a booming trading and service center for a mining and ranching area roughly the size of New England. In 2005 Relocate-America.com has named Elko City as 1 of the "Top 100 Places To Live" in the United States.

The weather in Elko County is considered ideal by many. Summer finds hot, dry afternoons with temperatures in the 90s, cooling to the low 40s and 50s by morning. Winters are moderate with lows typically in the 20s or 30s. Daytime highs during the winter months are in the 40s or 50s. Snowfall averages 42 inches per year and generally melts quickly. Yearly rainfall ranges from 9 to 10.5 inches. Sunny skies are usually seen over 300 days a year!

The land is mountainous and interspersed with low, flat valleys. The Humboldt River flows through the county. Elko County provides unlimited recreational opportunities with fishing, big game hunting (mule deer, elk, antelope and bighorn sheep), snowmobiling, ice fishing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, boating and skiing.


A video of my first journey around the Ruby Mountains in June 2004! Includes Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, the Humboldt River and the Last Chance Ranch II by Spring Creek and Elko, Nevada!
