Along the Loneliest Road in America, HWY 50, Eureka has made itself known as one of the best-preserved historical mining towns in Nevada. To gain more tourist travel, several new trails have been designed and built just along the outskirts of the city. Eureka is situated in Diamond Valley, and is bordered by two mountain ranges, the Diamond Mountains and Fish Creek Range. These mountains make for great exploring and a beautiful scenery. Trail heads can be found on Prospect Street, at the intersection of Hog Pen Canyon Road and Holly Road, the end of E McCoy Street, Wittenburg Street and along Highway 50. Many of these trails are dirt roads and easily accessible. As you traverse through the mountains keep your eye out for remnants of old mine shafts and other historical sites such as old buildings and ranches. In the winter, Diamond peak can be covered in snow, so check weather conditions before heading out. Prepare for lack of shade along routes by bringing plenty of water, wearing a hat and sunscreen as well as long light layers. OHV use is permitted throughout the city and on designated trails in the surrounding areas. Check the map before heading out, some trails may cross over private property; be sure to stick to BLM owned land areas.
