      This area has a ton to offer for all types of recreation. Home to Great Basin National Park and Wheeler Peak (13,062′) along with some amazing mountain ranges, tons of public land, great access, and trails right from downtown Ely, you can really spend some time in this area and still not see a fraction of it.

      Located about 4 hours North of Vegas, 5 hours East of Reno, and 4 hours West of Salt Lake this area is in the middle of everywhere and makes for a great stopping over point for longer journeys. It also makes for a great summer destination when the asphalt is melting your shoes down South or when you can no longer handle the crowds in the Sierras.
