In August 2018 I spent the evening having a picnic with friends at Southfork State Rec Area which sits about 15 miles SW of this property! It was a stormy evening making for a beautiful sunset! It is known for its trophy-size trout and bass and bird watching! We spent our time finding a rock with a circle, making a wish, and taking our socks off to dip our toes into the water for good luck while throwing it! : ) A shout out to my Auntie who instilled that in me!

2.09 acre lot for sale in Spring Creek, Nevada about 11 miles SE of Elko in the Last Chance Ranch. It’s a remote and rural country setting hidden in the Elko Hills with dirt road access. It’s just waiting for a fisherwoman with Southfork State Recreation Area only 15 miles away! It’s about 3 hours S of Twin Falls, Idaho, 7 hours N of Las Vegas, NV between Reno and Salt Lake City, Utah.

All of the photos were taken April 2018 on Eureka Avenue so about 1/3 of a mile NE as noted in the maps. You can see this property sitting in the lower foothills in images 5 & 6. This is a corner lot with Second Street running along the South and Cortez Avenue along the E. Both of these roads are bladed dirt roads. They have improved the roads thru Spring Creek to here and then it actually continues a bit further back between the hills to the area this property is in! This can be a difficult place to access when it's muddy and I suggest you use a truck to easily access it.

The property sits two blocks beyond the property with all the vehicles on it on the same side of the dirt road seen in the photos.

Power sits about 6/10 of a mile NE at the corner of Third Street and Fairview and we highlighted this in the maps. The property sits in the lower foothills that surround this small valley called Burner Basin. It rises up the hill from about 5625' on its N to 5650 on the S so its up a bit higher than where the photos were taken offering even better views of the hills and mountains!

I played with google earth a bit and you can really get a good idea how this little valley tucks in below the Elko Hills. It looks like on the BLM map that it’s known as Burner Basin and there is Burner Basin Spring sitting in the adjoining section (square mile) to the east. I read online that Burner Basin and Burner Basin Spring, a valley NE of the Elko Summit, are named for Elijah Burner who used the valley for range land. It certainly looks like good range land for cattle and I have photos of cattle grazing out here the first time I visited.

One of the neighbors to the NE has some trailers and a horse. A few places have quite a few vehicles/rv's and could use some clean up. There's a few stick built homes near the beginning and manufactured homes here and there but for the most part this part remains undeveloped.

Boy has this place really grown since I first visited it over ten years ago as I only recall one home back then. There are some really nice new homes as we exited Spring Creek into this subdivision and quite a few people have corrals and small barns with horses - very nice!

There are great views of the Elko Hills to the N with the towers on top of her. And beyond are the Adobe Mountains. 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.

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!

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 Last Chance Ranch sits just NE of Spring Creek as seen in the maps. Spring Creek is a bedroom community about ten minutes south of the town of Elko with a few restaurants and small stores. 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! I've really seen Elko grow since I first started exploring here in 2002. There is a newer bridge overpass over the Humboldt River in town and new homes being built with prices starting at over $250,000.

I included a video in the Additional Photos section below of my first journey around the Ruby Mountains in June 2004! It includes Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, the Humboldt River and the Last Chance Ranch II by Spring Creek and Elko, Nevada!

It looks like a quiet setting to live with some horses! 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!
