CALIENTE

If you’re an off-roader, you’ll want to gun your engine for Caliente. As the hub of the Silver State ATV Trail, it’s your go-to place for a 260-mile outdoor adventure stretching from Caliente Summit to Mount Grafton and back again.

For more outdoor adventure, you’ll find the nearby Rainbow Canyon. Two miles further down you can stop by the Kershaw-Ryan State Park, where you’ll find shady picnic spots, a wading pool, horseshoe pits and grapevines crawling up awe-inspiring canyon walls. There’s also a nearby trilobite fossil collecting area, run by the BLM.

Nestled in southeastern Nevada on U.S. Highway 93 among groves of lush trees, Caliente is home to a mission-style railroad depot built in 1923 that features a larger-than-life mural depicting the Silver State’s history from 1863 to 1914. You’ll also find new motels and charming restaurants throughout the town.
