Basin and Range National Monument

Ely, NV 89301


The Basin and Range National Monument is a vast and rugged landscape that redefines our notions of distance and space and where opportunities for solitude abound. About two hours north of Las Vegas, the 704,000-acre monument includes Garden and Coal valleys, the Worthington and Seaman Mountains, the Golden Gate and Mount Irish ranges, Hiko and White River narrows; and Shooting Gallery rock art site. The first national monument managed by BLM in Nevada, it provides for all types of outdoor recreation, including climbing, hiking, bicycling, camping, hunting, OHV riding (except in the Worthington Mountains Wilderness) and more.
