Round Mountain is a living ghost town, which means it has a few inhabitants and a lot of history. It’s home to one of the largest working gold mines in the country, Round Mountain Gold.
This little town is located at the heart of fantastic wildlife refuges and forests, including the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and the Arc Dome and the Alta-Toquima Wilderness Area. These destinations provide spectacular opportunities for wildlife viewing, hiking and biking (including the 75-mile Toiyabe Crest Trail System). Keep a careful watch and you might even spot Nevada’s state animal, the bighorn sheep.
To the east you’ll find the highest mountain in central Nevada – and the highest North American Indian Village ever discovered. Be sure to travel a bit to the north for a relaxing soak in the Spencer Hot Springs.
