Consider this page your virtual “toolbox” for navigating Nevada Silver Trails. Remember, much of Nevada is designated as “open range” which means that the highways are not fenced and it’s the responsibility of the driver to avoid meandering animals including cattle, antelope, sheep, and wild horses (especially at night!) In many areas, cell service is spotty at best, or nonexistant. Always carry some basic items include drinking water, flashlight, food/snacks, blanket or sleeping bag, first aid kit, duct tape, and an assortment of tools. For additional road condition information, you can call the Nevada Department of Transportation at 775-888-7000, or the Bureau of Land Management at 775-726-8100. Okay, now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s going—choose a travel tool!
