Railroad Valley Wildlife Management Area

Description:

A terrific birding place with 147 species listed with half considered common to the area. Four separate sections provide habitat for migratory and nesting waterfowl, non-game birds, mammals, and fishes. The areas cannot be seen from the highway, so it is a surprise to take a dirt road and find a wetland with tall reeds. Chimney Springs, Locke`s Pond, Big Well Ponds, and Blue Eagle Pond are four parts of the area accessible over dirt roads.

Directions:

Take U.S. Hwy 6 northeast of Tonopah about halfway to Ely.
