10.07 treed acres of land for sale nestled high in the Elko Hills in Elko, Nevada by Spring Creek. You're going to need a 4WD with clearance to get to this one and it's not for the faint of heart! It’s a beautiful country setting with incredible sweeping views overlooking Spring Creek and the Ruby Mountains! It’s about 1.25 hours S of Idaho, 4 hours E of Reno, and 7 hours N of Las Vegas, NV. This charming chunk of land is just begging for someone seeking a place in Cowboy Country to enjoy the outdoors! My notes say "She's Awesome! You can see Spring Creek below Ruby Dome!"
All of the photos were taken in September 2016 of the property and it's surrounding views. I also included a photo from 2012 looking up the hill that runs about 340 feet to the west of the SW corner of the property. This one isn't for the faint of heart and you will definitely need a 4WD with clearance to get to the top of this hill.
We took an improved road thru Spring Creek that snakes out to this part of the Elko Hills from the SW. I see some maps call it 4th Street and it can be very tricky to find your way out here so I would really study google earth beforehand. I would also print several of the maps and take a hand held gps with me. There are a few newer homes to the south where you snake thru the hills and then from that point we took bladed dirt roads to the property.
I included two photos - one looking up the steep hill and another one looking down. I walked a bit of it - I get a bit nervous when I can't see over the front of the truck! I hiked down to the property off the steep hill that falls down off the road to the east. It flattens out once you get down off the spine of the hill to a moderate slope.
I took this photo in June 2012 from down below the property while viewing another property. The dirt road winds its way up the hill and the property sits about 350 feet to the right of the road.
I previuosly sold this property and have purchased it back. The new owner had a survey done and recorded and shared the survey photos with me. You can also see quite a bit of snow in the Rubies - sweet!
It sits at the top of the Elko Hills and rolls down from the west to the east. There were sweeping views of the Ruby Mountains and a pretty view of Ruby Dome! I really thought this had some great views and so off the beaten path no one will find you here! Oh did I fall in love with the view up here! It's the biggest view I've ever seen overlooking the valley where Spring Creek sits and the Ruby Mountains beyond! Wow!
Called the Swiss Alps of Nevada, the Ruby Mountains reach up to 11,317 feet at Ruby Dome. Part of the Humboldt National Forest, the largest forest in the lower 48 states, lies within the Ruby Mountains! Oh I love to marvel at them each time I visit. Sometimes they are filled with snow, sometimes a burnt orange in fall colors, always changing and always stunning!
There are trees sprinkled about the property as seen in the photos and aerial photos. It has lots of grass and scattered sage brush. I noticed quite a bit of poop up here - rabbit and larger!
Wildhorse Reservoir is a 2,800 acre premium trout reservoir 60 miles north of the town of Elko. In 2011 I ran into some men who had just hauled a 350 pound elk from the Wild Horse State Recreation Area and of course I have included photos of those as well! Hunters know the area for its elk, deer, mountain lion and bird but it's the fishermen that tell tall stories about ice fishing at Wildhorse.
Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge sits on the SE side of the Ruby Mountains. With over 12,000 acres this area is a special habitat to over 207 species of birds providing feeding, nesting and a resting stop in the Pacific Flyway. On one of my first visits to Elko County some nice gentlemen told me that Ruby Lake was the best fishing in the state!
South Fork Reservoir and State Rec area is about 20 minutes S of Elko. It covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills and known for its trophy-class trout and bass.
Spring Creek is a bedroom community to Elko. It offers a few restaurants and stores and continues to be a growing area. Wow what a cool chunk of land for someone looking for a place to get away out of town with no one around but the animals! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Prior to visiting the property I suggest you study the maps and the satellite image as they tell the story on how to get there. Get a mental picture of how to get to a property from a main road. I frequently write notes on how I got to the property.
Print out the important maps like the parcel map, aerial photo with the GPS coords and street map. These are the maps I use myself if I was going to view the property. You can enter the latitude and longitude into Google or Bing maps by putting a comma between them.
I also suggest you bring a street dedicated GPS like a Garmin, not your phone. Do not rely on your GPS to take you the correct way as she'll take you down miles of roads that aren't the main drags. I've named mine Thelma and Louise because she's tried to drive me off a cliff a few times! If I could just get Brad Pitt to sit in the back seat! : )
Most of the properties I sell are down some kind of dirt road - my favs! Be smart and bring a shovel, water, food, blankets, mace, a dog and anything else you might need if you get stuck for a day or two. I've been stuck in the sand, a marsh, had tires blow out - you name it. Be prepared, be safe, and have fun. She's a beautiful Earth. We only get one shot here - get out there and see all she has to offer. Char the Explorer : )
A video of my journeys thru Meadow Valley Ranchos Unit 11, the Hamilton-Bullion Trail and the South Fork State Reservoir where I sat thru a cattle drive in Elko, Nevada!
The Hamilton-Bullion Trail is an 11 mile loop for horses, hikers and mountain bikers. It goes from Elko onto BLM land and over hills offering scenic views of the Ruby Mountains, South Fork Reservoir and the Humboldt River. South Fork covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills. Known for its trophy-class trout and bass, and bird watching.
Elko County is located in northeastern Nevada, 295 miles east of Reno and 237 miles west of Salt Lake City. With 17,135 square miles it is one of the largest counties in the USA and is the heart of NE Nevada. A book listing American towns with the highest quality of life declared Elko, Nevada, "The Best Small Town in America." It is a small city, and a booming trading and service center for a mining and ranching area roughly the size of New England. In 2005 Relocate-America.com has named Elko City as 1 of the "Top 100 Places To Live" in the United States.
The population of Elko County is over 52,000, the town of Elko is over 18,000 and the town of Spring Creek is 12,000. Lately, Elko has evolved into a showcase for Western American Folk Art. Long famous for the National Basque Festival, held each Independence Day, a new era in Elko's cultural history began in 1985, when the first Cowboy Poetry Gathering was held. Estimates are 8000 - 10000 people attended the festival this January!
The weather in Elko County is considered ideal by many. Summer finds hot, dry afternoons with temperatures in the 90s, cooling to the low 40s and 50s by morning. Winters are moderate with lows typically in the 20s or 30s. Daytime highs during the winter months are in the 40s or 50s. Snowfall averages 42 inches per year and generally melts quickly. Yearly rainfall ranges from 9 to 10.5 inches. Sunny skies are usually seen over 300 days a year!
The land is mountainous and interspersed with low, flat valleys. The Humboldt River flows through the county, with the Ruby Mountains stretching across it in a north-south direction. The elevation in the valleys is about 5000 and reaches up to 11,300 feet at Ruby Dome. The elevation of Pilot Peak on the east side of Elko County reaches up to 10,716 feet. Elko County provides unlimited recreational opportunities with fishing, big game hunting (mule deer, elk, antelope and bighorn sheep), snowmobiling, ice fishing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, boating and skiing.
