Black Rock-High Rock Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area

Description:

Spectacular scenic opportunities abound in one of the largest and flattest alkaline playas in the United States. The Playa is a now-dry remnant of ancient Lake Lahontan; it is 44 miles long (oriented north-south), and averages 7 miles in width. Opportunities for solitude are considerable. A variety of interesting geologic features dominate the landscape. The near-pristine Applegate-Lassen section of the California National Historic Trail traverses the Playa.

Directions:

From Reno, take Interstate 80 east to Wadsworth. Travel north for 75 miles on State Highway 447 to Gerlach.
