2 adjoining 10 acre parcels of land for sale in Montello Nevada by Wendover. They sit just below the foothills of the Pilot Mountain Range near the Idaho Utah state line. It’s about 2 hours E of Elko and 2.5 hours W of Salt Lake City in Elko County. It's a fabulous long views of the Pilot Mountains that had a beautiful sunset on them when we visited!

All of the photos were taken in October 2014 about 1 miles SW of this property in the same section. We noted this in the maps. Images 3, 4, 9 & 10 are looking NE towards this property. The image numbers are at the top of the photos.

The properties sit about three miles east of graveled Pilot Road, the main road that leads through this part of the valley. There is a bladed dirt road that heads E off Pilot Road along the section line and runs along the north of the properties.

The property is mostly flat with a very gentle slope from the E to the W. It's covered in sagebrush and low vegetation.

Across the valley from the NE to the SE is a long view of the Pilot Mountains. The tallest point Pilot Peak, stands at 10,716 feet just to the SE and she still had snow in her peaks - nice! To the NE is Rhyolite Butte, a fascinating rock that sits at 5,965 feet. It rises above the valley floor and when you get up close it really is pretty to look at and shoots straight up in the air - very cool! Across the valley from the NW to the SW are the Toano Mountains that had a pretty sunset over them!

This big chunk of 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 adjoining the property to the north and another 640 acres east. Each square on the BLM map represents one square mile. For more information on BLM land you can visit

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!

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!

We stopped at the Cowboy Bar Cafe again in 2013 for a bite to eat and to warm up and met a couple cowboys that said they worked at the Gamble Ranch and I spent the next hour bending their ear! They said it had been a very cold winter and it was common for some cattle to die and we had just finished picking up a big skull. I included a few photos in the additional photos area of these truly nice gentlemen - thanks guys!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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 less than 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 Interstate 80 to the south.

The property is zoned for either a home, manufactured home or RV. What a fabulous spot to watch the snow on Pilot Peak. I think it would be a great spot for off grid! When you're done watching the snow melt and antelope roam you can jump on your ATV and explore! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

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 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!
