Combination Mine Road is a simple and easy dead-end road used primarily to access the southern end of the Nelson Rollercoaster trail. The road is located in close proximity to Nelson, Nevada, and was once part of the Colorado-Eldorado Mining District. Due to the high level of mining that took place in this area, you will find many rotting mine structures and closed-off mine shafts as you make your way down the loose dirt and gravel road. Starting at the Nelson Cutoff, Combination Mine travels down a washboard Mojave Desert track for 3 miles, passing several large areas used for camping and multiple mining relics until reaching a Y-intersection with Nelson Rollercoaster. The last half mile of the trail is uneventful and comes to an abrupt end at private property. This trail is easily traveled by any vehicle but is best to run in combination with other trails in the area that might require a more robust 4wd than what is required to travel this road.
