Virtual Guidebook to Northern and Central Nevada
North of the Black Rock Playa
Nevada


The Calico Mounains border the northwest arm of the Black Rock Desert, an austere and remote area protected as part of the High Rock Canyon-Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area. The Applegate Trail to southern Oregon branched off the California Trail at Black Rock Point and ran north up the playa to Soldier Meadow, then west through dramatic High Rock Canyon.
