Butch Cassidy Pass

Butch Cassidy Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.217m (3,992ft) above the sea level, located in Nye County, in southern Nevada, USA.

The road to the summit, located on the east slope of Montgomery Mountain, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called Johnnie Mine Trail (aka Butch Cassidy Road). Road conditions are always changing. It can be a reasonably easy drive in favourable dry conditions, but also has the potential to be a very difficult muddy and slippery track -and at times impassable- after wet weather. 4x4 recommended.

Starting and ending at NV-160, the trail to the summit is 7.2 miles long. The trail leads to a petroglyph site and an abandoned gold mine called Johnnie mine . Do not enter the Johnnie Mill site. After World War II, the entire site was purchased and was privately owned as it still is today. Butch Cassidy died in 1944 at the age of 79 and was allegedly buried in Johnnie although this has not been documented.
