US 6 is the real "Loneliest Road", crossing Nevada's empty outback from Montgomery Pass at the California line to Baker and Great Basin National Park at the Utah line. In those 297 miles of open spaces there are only three towns of more than 100 people, Baker, Tonopah and Ely. Most days you'll have the road to yourself.

Some Highlights along US-6

Hotel Nevada & Gambling Hall offers White Pine County's only live blackjack, roulette and poker tables, the area's biggest-paying video games and slots. Open 24 hours!

Baker is a delightful community sometimes overshadowed by the nearby National Park. Lodging, food and drink are plentiful and the natives are friendly if you are.

Tonopah was the first mining city of the 20th Century, a furious caldron of enterprise and avarice with street lights and telephones. It is the seat of Nye County, but it peaked in the years before World War I, and except for a few robust but brief hiccups (the latest one in 1979), the old city has been declining ever since. Travelers find many excellent lodging and dining options, and you can spend a pleasant day exploring.

Great Basin National Park
Great Basin National Park, five miles west of Baker, offers a daily 3-hour Bristlecone Pine walk from mid-June through Labor Day. Underground tours of the spectacular Lehman Caves depart the Visitor Center hourly.
