1.13 acre lots about 20 minutes NE of Elko, Nevada in Ryndon with views of the Ruby Mountains and Elko Hills! Your choice of 3 off grid lots sitting kitty corner from each other just off a graveled road and only 4 miles of Interstate 80. Elko County sits in very NE Nevada by Idaho and Utah.

All of the photos and video were taken in June 2019 from Block 20 Lot 5 on 21st Street and from the corner of 20th Street and Coal Mine Canyon, a graveled and the main road back to I-80. I also included a few photos of a herd of pronghorn antelope I spotted further N on Coal Mine Canyon. They sit about 4 miles N of Interstate 80. Lot 5 sits 1 block to the N of lots 11 and 13 and all 3 lots adjoining kitty corner as seen in the parcel map.

The road grader out blading Coal Mine Canyon Road a few years ago.

Lot 5 sits about 365 feet W of the graveled road on 21st Street which is an overgrown bladed dirt road. There is a bit of a lip off Coal Mine Canyon onto 21st from the road grader otherwise it's driveable. Be sure and turn around before you get further on the property as the road quickly gets lost and narrows further east.

Looking E on 21st Street. The property sits on the left hand side of the truck.

Lot 11 sits about 570 feet W and lot 13 sits about 250 feet W of the graveled road on 20th Street. It was so overgrown I could barely make out this bladed road, but its a short distance from the graveled road to imrpove.

Looking S on Coal Mine Canyon Road with the Elko Hills in the distance.

The area is mostly flat with healthy scattered sagebrush and yellow blooming desert brush - oh it smelled so good! My notes say "She's a pretty little piece, quiet, dead quiet other than the wind blowing!" You can see where the road grader has taken the blader thru lot #5 to divert the water off Coal Mine Canyon Road creating a little channel thru the lower part of the property as seen in the aerial photos. 

Looking N across the lots with the Adobe Mountains surrounding the valley.

The zoning allows for a home, manufactured home or year round RV use! There's a few places in the sandy hills 1/2 mile SE where I've seen people play on their motorbikes. I studied the BLM map and it appears that this is BLM land. Definitely verify it before going and having fun but it looks like a spot to take some ATV's or motorcycles.

In 2012 I snapped these photos of people out playing in the hills on their motorcycles!


There's pretty views of the Adode Mountains and Elko Hills nearby with the Ruby Mountains beyond to the S and SE!  Called the Swiss Alps of Nevada her snow-capped peaks reach up to 11,317 feet at Ruby Dome and offer beautiful views to this subdivision! Sometimes they are filled with snow, sometimes a burnt orange in fall colors, always changing and always stunning!

This little valley is surrounded by the Adobe Mountains. She is definitely an unsung hero compared to the Rubies, but she also has lots of character in her and I remember thinking how unique some of her cool peaks are when I first started taking photos of her about ten years ago.

They run for about 80 miles and have an area of about 314 square miles. It’s highest summit is 8,134 feet. It's on the list of Nevada’s 172 Prominent Peaks! I found a posting on of someone that hiked to the peak. They shared how to get out to the trail and the way up to the peak. They also shared several fabulous photos overlooking across the valley and Humboldt River to the Ruby Mountains. It seems that this is becoming quite known to climbers as you will see in the photos! Cool!

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.

Most of the Adobes are a checkerboard of public (Bureau of Land Management) and private ownership and this land borders 1 square mile of BLM land (640 acres) on its southern border. This pattern is attributed to the Pacific Railway Act of 1862, where the federal government gave railroad companies free land in alternating sections as an incentive and a means to finance the overwhelming task of linking east with west by rail.

I spotted this antelope herd further up Coal Mine Canyon Road that day!

Within an hour’s drive of the property are some famous fishing holes, Wildhorse Reservoir, Ruby Lake, and South Fork Reservoir!

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.

The section of land that this property is located in is close to several square miles of BLM land as seen in the BLM map. (BLM land is in orange). A section = 1 square mile = 640 acres. For more information on BLM land you can visit

I have really seen the areas NE along I80 continue to grow. It seems it’s mostly the locals who buy properties out here to hang out in their RV in the country side or for investment. You’re still a quick drive to the garlic steak sandwich at the Star Hotel in bustling downtown Elko! I myself own a piece of land about 10 miles N off Coal Mine Canyon Road. I keep telling myself some day I am going to build myself a little place there and watch it snow on the Ruby Mountains!

It's about a ten minute drive NE of Elko and there is a gas station/mini store at the Ryndon exit #314. I frequently stop and grab a sandwich from the back deli and it's convenient gas! And I've thrown a few bucks in the slot maching while waiting! 

I think these lots so close to town are worth investing in. Come have fun in Cowboy Country hunting, fishing or just watching the antelope roam! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

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!
