- Type: 4WD
NileGuide Expert tip:
Be prepared for this route through beautiful desert back country. This road is best attempted by experienced off-road drivers, and four wheel drive is a must. Strongly consider teaming with another driver for additional safety.
- The byway begins at the Valley of Fire State Park and is 28 miles long. From the Valley of State Park the route runs along the foothills of the Muddy Mountains, through several dry washes, past abandoned mining operations and terminates on North Shore Drive in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Verdant desert streams, evidence of borax mining operations and geological formations rare for this region of Nevada delight byway travelers. Four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended.
