10 acres of land for sale about 5 minutes from Montello, Nevada with power and a graveled road about 1/4 mile away. It is about 2.5 hours W of Salt Lake City and 2 hours NE of Elko. It’s a rural valley well off the beaten path about 30 miles N of Interstate 80 and about 50 minutes NW of the busy gambling border town Wendover by the Great Salt Lake. Come play in Cowboy Country!

All of the photos were taken of the property and its surrounding views in August 2009. There is an overgrown dirt road leading along the south. It sits 10 acres east of a more improved dirt road that leads down the west section line. There is a graveled road with power along it at the northwest section line (a section equals one square mile) so power is about 1/4 of a mile NW. There is a dedicated easement surrounding each parcel so you can put the road in the rest of the way to the property. The vegetation was short and we were able to drive over it in our truck to the property. So excellent access to the area and power very close and right close to town!

This is a pretty part of the valley and there are a few people that live around this area as seen in the photos. It has awesome views of the Pilot Mountains from the NE to the SE. They sit just a few miles to the east and you sure get some beautiful details in her mountain peaks! Part of this range is in Utah as well.

Rhyolite Butte is a beautiful big rock at the NE end of this range 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! . I really enjoyed the first time I got to see this rock so up close - she is beautiful and such a unique shape. She sits about three miles to the northeast offering great detail as seen in the photos!

All the way down the valley to the SE about 20 miles is Pilot Peak at 10,716 feet!

Across the valley from the NW to the SW is the Toano Mountains and the sun was setting on them. I frequently come across hunters hanging out on the other side of them and there are a few passes thru the mountains to get over there.

This ten acres is fairly flat and looks like it was farmed at some point because of the low vegetation but it has grown back. There was some short vegetation with a soft layer of dirt. It has a bit of a gentle roll towards the east. There are pretty groves of trees in the distance. There is a neighbor with a fence and some abandoned trailers/cars which appears to adjoin this property on the northwest of the property.

We found the Federal Survey Marker for township, range and section 16 which adjoins this section 21 which is about 20 acres to the NW! This will help you to locate the property and I included a photo of the marker.

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 20 acres to the S and another 640 acres 10 acres to the W. 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 needles 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 and what a fabulous location right close to town. When you're done watching the antelope roam you can jump on your ATV and be at the Cowboy Bar Cafe in no time enjoying a greasy cheeseburger and a cold one! This farm girl gives it 2 thumbs up!

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!
