4 adjoining 1.13 acre lots for sale sitting high in the Elko Hills in Burner Basin about 10 miles N of Spring Creek. Totals 4.52 acres of rural secluded off grid land with an intermittent stream running thru it and views of the Ruby Mountains!

All the photos were taken in April 2013 about 2 miles west of this property for sale in Last Chance Ranch Unit 2 which is the closest I have been to this property in the past few years. I have studied it on Google Earth and talked to a fellow that improved the road out to his place a few blocks to the SE. It appears you take Boyd Kennedy Road NE off Lamoille Highway 277. Follow that for about 5.5 to 6 miles NE then turn NE towards the property. From there it's a little over 2 miles N to the road that puts you into the E side of the subdivision.

I really suggest you study the maps and Google Earth so you can get a picture of this in your head before heading out there. The roads from that point are going to be more overgrown for sure as hardly anyone uses these roads but they were bladed years ago. You do have the right to improve the road though like he did! I noticed that Google Maps does not show any of the roads out here on the street view but if you click on the aerial view it shows them. Bing maps does show the name on the street view and the aerial view. Interesting!

As you can see in the aerial overlay in the maps the lots sit on the side of the hill with the intermittent stream flowing along the eastern side of 3, 4 & 5. Lots 3 & 4 sit mostly on the side of the hill and lots 5 & 6 sit about half on the hill and half on the flat part below the hill.

There are great views of the Ruby Mountains and Elko Hills. Called the Swiss Alps of Nevada, the Ruby Mountains snow-capped peaks reach up to 11,317 feet at Ruby Dome! Oh I love to marvel at them each time I visit. Sometimes they are filled with snow, sometimes a burnt orange in fall colors, always changing and always stunning! Part of the Humboldt National Forest, the largest forest in the lower 48 states, lies within the Ruby Mountains!

The Last Chance Ranch sits just N of Spring Creek as seen in the maps. Spring Creek is a bedroom community about ten minutes south of the town of Elko and the Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital sits just on the other side of the hill to the west on the Lamoille Highway. So it’s about a 20 minute drive to downtown Elko for a garlic steak sandwich at the Star Hotel!

Elko County contains the majority of Nevada’s mule deer and this range is home to one of the largest mule deer and antelope herds in the state. They migrate between their summer range in the Snake and Adobe ranges to winter range in the Pequop Mountains. The N Fork of the Humboldt River borders the Adobe range to the south and east.

The Adobe's run for about 80 miles and have an area of about 314 square miles. It’s highest peak, an unnamed summit of 8,134 feet, is on the list of Nevada’s 172 Prominent Peaks! I was thinking they should name it after Ceasar Salicchi, the Elko County Treasurer from 1971 to 2006 and my mentor!

One of the largest herds I’ve seen in my life in 2004 while exploring this area!

Within an hour’s drive of the property are some famous fishing holes, Wildhorse Reservoir, Ruby Lake, and South Fork Reservoir! On one of my first visits to Elko County these two nice gentlemen told me that Ruby Lake was the best fishing in the state!

Wildhorse Reservoir is a 2,800 acre premium trout reservoir 60 miles north of the town of Elko. In 2011 I ran into some men who had just hauled a 350 pound elk from the Wild Horse State Recreation Area and of course I have included photos of those as well! Hunters know the area for its elk, deer, mountain lion and bird but it's the fishermen that tell tall stories about ice fishing at Wildhorse.

Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge sits on the SE side of the Ruby Mountains. With over 12,000 acres this area is a special habitat to over 207 species of birds providing feeding, nesting and a resting stop in the Pacific Flyway. On one of my first visits to Elko County some nice gentlemen told me that Ruby Lake was the best fishing in the state!

South Fork Reservoir and State Rec area is about 20 minutes S of Elko. It covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills and known for its trophy-class trout and bass.

I thought it would be a great getaway spot for someone to hang out in their RV and enjoy the deer and view of the Rubies as well as a good investment in the meantime. Imagine the change in the colors in the valley and mountain sides with the seasons!

I've seen signs along the interstate as well as the main drag thru town that say HIRING and it’s been difficult to get a hotel room Monday thru Thursday because of all of the workers coming to this area to work during the week. Elko continues to be a growing area even in this difficult economy and I continue to think that these lots so close to town are a good investment. And every time I put one of these up for sale they are gone pretty quick! enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Elko County Area Photos

A video of my journeys thru Meadow Valley Ranchos Unit 11, the Hamilton-Bullion Trail and the South Fork State Reservoir where I sat thru a cattle drive in Elko, Nevada!

The Hamilton-Bullion Trail is an 11 mile loop ]for horses, hikers and mountain bikers. It goes from Elko onto BLM land and over hills offering scenic views of the Ruby Mountains, South Fork Reservoir and the Humboldt River.

South Fork covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills. Known for its trophy-class trout and bass, and bird watching.

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 has named Elko City as 1 of the "Top 100 Places To Live" in the United States.

The population of Elko County is over 52,000, the town of Elko is over 18,000 and the town of Spring Creek is 12,000. Lately, Elko has evolved into a showcase for Western American Folk Art. Long famous for the National Basque Festival, held each Independence Day, a new era in Elko's cultural history began in 1985, when the first Cowboy Poetry Gathering was held. Estimates are 8000 - 10000 people attended the festival this January!

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, with the Ruby Mountains stretching across it in a north-south direction. The elevation in the valleys is about 5000 and reaches up to 11,300 feet at Ruby Dome. The elevation of Pilot Peak on the east side of Elko County reaches up to 10,716 feet. 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!

All of the maps and information provided in this listing are intended to assist you in your due diligence research. We try and include many resources that we use ourselves.
