Description

The Back Country Byway travels across 62 miles of Nevada desert. The town of Gold Butte stands as an old mining town established in the early 1900s where precious metals such as gold, copper, zinc, and lead were mined. The byway offers chances to see petroglyphs, colorful sandstone, and great formations like the Muddy Mountains or the Virgin Mountains along the way.

The byway is near the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, which makes it a fun location for the whole family. Discover all the exciting places to visit within just a few hours of driving distance. Stop at Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Mesquite, or the Valley of Fire State Park.
