Central Nevada is home to historic mining and ranching that conjure up images of the Wild West. Nevada’s mountain ranges and wide open valleys are home to wildlife, livestock and wild horses and burros.
The Battle Mountain District Office (BMDO) manages approximately 10.5 million acres of public land within Lander, Eureka, Esmeralda and Nye Counties. Opportunities for recreation abound from fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding and camping to visiting ghost towns, petroglyph sites, rock hounding and stargazing.
Most of the sites below, along with dozens of others can be found in my books: Secret Places in the Mojave Desert Vol. 1, Secret Places in the Mojave Desert Vol. 2, and Secret Places in the Mojave Desert Vol. III.  The books contain GPS coordinates and topographical maps, making it easier to locate the treasures in which Battle Mountain BLM hold.
