Mount Washington

Mount Washington is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.493m (11,459ft) above the sea level, located in White Pine County, along the central eastern boundary of the U.S. state of Nevada. The road becomes much more of an adventure. High clearance and four wheel drive are required. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Nevada.

The summit is located within the Great Basin National Park. The road to the top was built in 1948. It’s very rough, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. The trail is narrow with few places for passing so meeting someone can be a challenge. In order to drive this road up, you need a high clearance vehicle! The trail is very steep climbing up nearly to the top of the mountain, but the road is not the easiest to drive. Think switchbacks that are so steep you have to do three-point turns to go up some of them.
