Trail Information


Nevadaville Road passes through the old town of Nevadaville and past the remains of around 20 mines, some of which are fairly well preserved. In addition to the ghost town and mining ruins, Nevadaville Road provides a peaceful, scenic drive and an alternate connection into the Yankee Hill network of 4x4 trails.

You can see some cool ruins from the trail but there is a lot of private property that you will be on.

It may see odd to give a gravel road a 5 rating but the scenery and mining history along this road are amazing. I was taking a tour of back roads above Central City and finished by coming down Nevadaville Road. The road was in good shape, open and clear all the way through. The buildings in Nevadaville itself are holding up well with no noticeable deterioration. I was told a few years ago that the store was going to be renovated and re-opened but that plan seems to have fizzled out. It does look like a few more of the houses around the area are re-occupied.

This is just a dirt road. Dry and open through. I wish Nevadaville got the same kind of attention St. Elmo and other ghost towns get. The remaining buildings are in good shape.
