Fallon is basecamp for outdoor adventure in northern Nevada.  Nearby Sand Mountain is an off-roader’s paradise, Lake Lahontan State Parkoffers water sports, fishing, and camping, and Fallon is a springboard into some of Nevada’s finest hunting and fishing on your own or with a licensed Nevada outfitter.

Fallon and Churchill County are rich in back country adventure where one can camp and picnic in secluded meadows and remote canyons, climb mountain ranges for awesome vistas, see unusual rock formations and earthquake faults, or view wildlife and plant life in some of the most unlikely places.

Scenic hikes, wildlife viewingold west history, and ghost towns await your exploration and discovery.

Field Trips
Eastgate Dens

The Dens are a great place to visit just about anytime of the year.  Water is always coming over the falls.  You may see a Nevada Big Horn Sheep, and the seasons are alive with color and the sounds and sights of abundant wildlife.

Travel Hwy 50 east 48 to 50 miles until you come to SR722.  Stay on the pavement for 5 to 6 miles, traveling through a canyon, and, just as it straightens out, make a left on a dirt road.  Stay on the dirt road taking the left fork to the end.  You will come to an area where people have made campfires.  Cross the stream and start your hike.  It’s two hours up and back.

Little Box and Big Box Canyon in the Stillwaters

Little Box and Big Box Canyon are great hikes for climbing around granite in the Stillwaters.  These canyons usually have water in them year round.    Big box is just the right trip for children.  In the summer and early fall, watch out for rattlesnakes.

Travel Hwy 50 approx. 40 miles east to the Dixie Valley turn off and turn north on SR 121.  Watch your road markers.  At mile marker 22 watch for a dirt road leading left into the mountains (if you pass marker 23 you have gone too far).  The dirt road is a little rough on cars but a high clearance vehicle will do just fine.  Follow the road to the end on the south fork and you will run into the Big Box Canyon. If you take the north fork you will run into Little Box Canyon.
