The road itself is pretty interesting, but there will be a lot of side trips OFF this road on BLM land that will be fantastic, as well. We drove on this road between the Utah/Nevada State Line to Ely. We visited Great Basin National Park and also took a side road to the Ward Charcoal Ovens. There is also a wind farm along the way. If we had more time to explore the BLM lands, that would be fun, too. Since we went to Ely for dinner and had to drive back to Baker for the hotel, there was a snow storm heading back. Keep in mind that there are a lack of road markings (certainly compared to what are used to seeing on the East Coast), so when it snows, it's hard to see where the road ends or the middle of the road is. The rumble strips to help you to hear it, though.

Several pools in the area that we were able to find by seeing the steam coming off the ground. Nobody around, just us and a rabbit. You will definitely need 4 wheel drive. There were varying degrees of warmth. Watch out for bubbling water!! That’s boiling water. We chose not to get in the water since it was 19 degrees outside.

Don’t follow directions they suck! Never found it

Map provided got me to a random place in desert with no trailhead. Never saw this trail.

Drove this road from Great Basin National Park to Ely, NV. The title is fitting. I'm not sure if we saw more then a couple of cars the whole time.

A lot trash and broken glass every where! Not a good place to soak. Was very disappointed that people have no respect for the land and what could be a nice Hot spring. I would not recommend this trail.

This is not a hike, this is a stroll A few birds, area being developed for geo thermal. One star only because of birding.
