the world's most spectacular roads

Pine Nut Road

Pine Nut Road is a bumpy dirt road located on the Desert National Wildlife Refuge in Clark County, in the U.S. state of Nevada.

Located on the east side of the Sheep Range, the road is 5.9 miles long. It’s gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Great trail for experienced wheelers. The trail runs north from Mormon Well Road heading towards Sheep Peak Mountains ending at Pine Nut Camp site, a traditional camping area.

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. The road usually requires only a high-clearance vehicle, but it can get troublesome crossing the first large wash. The ride is rather remote, so you need to be prepared. In case of a breakdown, there is very little in the way of passing traffic or inhabitants around, and no cell phone service in parts. There are no services or developments of any kind. Bring water and food, a good spare tire, a shovel, tools, a tow rope, bailing wire and anything else that you might need to survive a night stuck out in the desert.
