There is some great riding and remote old mining artifacts, east of Gabbs between hwy 361 and hwy 376. You can ride to Berlin(state park), Grantville and Ione. East of 376 there is Manhattan and Belmont. Not quite ghost towns but some are close.
There is a mountain range between the 2 highways. It has a wilderness area in the middle, but you can go over NF17 to some gold mine remnants at Ophir? or around to the south on NF18. That gets sandy around Cloverdale Ranch.
I remember camping off NF17 in a campground on a bubbling brook and thinking I was in the Sierra Nevada's.
Watch your gas gauge. There will be gas in Tonopaph and there was gas either in Carver or Round Valley. It was a while ago.
