Thanks for the heads up. That is exactly the kind of information I was looking for. I will re-route accordingly. I was able to find all the points you mentioned on my Benchmark Nevada Atlas. Love that Atlas.
Do you think we can make it through to Belmont and then to Manhattan on road 014 going from east to west? Looks like the road might go up to 8,900 ft.?
Since this is my first time off road to this area, I appreciate any and all feedback from those who have been there before.
Any other suggestions?
