The Black Rock Desert in Northern Nevada encompasses dramatic mountain ranges, lava beds, hot springs, and other wilderness areas, spanning 300,000 acres through three different counties. Through this wild, rugged landscape you`ll find the `Pony Express,` a fascinating part of American history established as a high-speed link between the two coasts. The route chosen for the Pony Express ran along much of the route of the California trail.
