PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

10 acres off grid land for sale in Montello Nevada, by Wells and Wendover in Elko County with a few trees sprinkled about it. The property sits in the foothills of the Toano Mountains between Charlie Canyon and Hoppie Canyon, two passes that take you thru the Toano Mountains! I love Charlie Canyon – she's so pretty overlooking the Pilot and Tecoma Valleys!

It’s about 3 hours SE of Twin Falls, Idaho and 2.5 hours NW of Salt Lake City, Utah. It’s a beautiful rural valley with antelope and wild horses roaming about and stunning mountain views! Montello is a small town of about 180 people and Wendover, a bustling gambling town on the Nevada Utah border by the Great Salt Lake, is an hours drive SE.

All of the photos were taken on two different visits to section 27, the adjoining section to the NE. The photos in May 2004 were taken 3/4 mile NE from the jeep trail that continues up to Charlie Canyon. The photos in April 2013 were taken about 1.5 miles N/NE.

There is a graveled/dirt road that leads right thru on to Charlie Canyon so that graveled road gets you very close to this property. You take a few different roads to reach this area – head N out of Montello towards the Gamble Ranch and then you take a few roads to the west to reach the Charlie Canyon road. The section map shows these roads but they can be tricky as there are so many roads out in this area. But only one leads up into the Canyon!



From there a section road leads to the west and then bends south down the section line that runs to the east of this property 10 acres away. I see a faint jeep trail that takes off this section line and heads NW within about 100 feet of this property. You would need to use the dedicated easement that surrounds each property to build the road directly from the section line to the property for the quickest access it looks like. The vegetation is fairly low and you should be able to drive over it in a truck with clearance. I see there is a neighbor tucked in the hills to the north off that section line so someone else does live out here.

This property is the foothills of the Toano Mountains with such beautiful views of her from the NW to the SW! You can see the beautiful trees that filter down the rolling foothills and trees sprinkled along an intermittent stream between the low point of these rolling hills. There is short grass, native plants and some sage scattered about.

The first time I came thru this canyon in 2004 I stopped and took photos I thought it was so breathtaking – green for miles and miles across the Pilot and Tecoma Valleys to the Pilot Mountain Range on the other side of the valley.

I have explored the west side of the mountains and it is miles of jeep trails to explore with antelope running around. Apparently there are elk out here too 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 this side of the mountains and sure enough down the road a ways we spotted a cute cabin! I snapped a picture of his truck and quad and included it in the additional photos area - fun!

The first time I came thru this canyon in 2004 I stopped and took photos I thought it was so breathtaking – green for miles and miles across the Pilot and Tecoma Valleys to the Pilot Mountain Range on the other side of the valley. It’s a bit odd sharing but I've told my daughter Amber several times that I wish to have part of my ashes spread in Charlie Canyon!

Across the valley from the NE to the SE is the Pilot Mountain Range. Part of this range is in Utah as well. Rhyolite Butte is a beautiful big rock at the NE end of this range about 10 miles away. I really enjoyed the first time I got to see this rock so up close - she is beautiful and such a unique shape. All the way down the valley to the SE is Pilot Peak at 10,716 feet.



This property sits 10 acres west of a section of BLM lands (Bureau of Land Management) and 20 acres south of another section of BLM land as seen in the parcel and BLM map. A section = 1 square mile = 640 acres. BLM land is orange and private land is white. 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!

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.



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!

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!



Pilot Valley is the very first place I ever saw a herd of wild horses! I had heard about them before and 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!

Elko, the county seat, is about 2 hours W where you will find a hospital and major shopping. Wendover is a larger town to the SE about 1 hour along I-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.

I first explored the Pilot Valley in 2002 and I'll never explore it enough! What a pretty place to watch the antelope roam and changing seasons on the mountain ranges! A great spot for someone seeking a rural area off the grid to put a cabin or home or just a place to for a hunter to hang out in their RV! What a beautiful part of the valley – Charlie Canyon! Enjoy!

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.
