Black Rock Desert and High Rock Canyon NW Nevada










My wife and I almost went there back in April! Your pictures make me want to get it back on the trip schedule ASAP. There isn't a whole lot of info on that area. Would you mind sharing your route, or parts of it in a pm? Also, any washed out roads we should be aware of? Awesome pics!

I highly recommend getting out there. I planned a loop starting from the north side of Black Rock and ran down the eastern edge. We met up with the Applegate Pioneer trail and followed it back across the Black Rock playa and onto the High Rock Canyon. Go here for the best info online: http://blackrockdesert.org/brochures/

No big washouts that we impassable. But the stretch of trail from Double Hot Springs to High Rock Canyon had many small washes that you really had to go slow through, lots of "gotchas" if you weren't paying attention. I'll send a google earth KMZ file from my APRS on my HAM. Not too accurate but enough to get the picture. I found the DeLorme for Nevada worked the best.

Thanks for the info Chris, I'm hoping to visit in the fall. Given its a desert with extremes fall and late spring are the best seasons I think. One of the reasons we did not go in April was the High Rock Canyon trail doesn't open until mid May.

I timed our trip to catch High Rock Canyon on the day that the gate opened and we did!
