The Lincoln Highway in Basin and Range – A Slight Diversion near Hamilton, Nevada

Between Hamilton and Coyle’s Ranch in White Pine County is a road that turns south to the Belmont Mill. This is a project currently under restoration by the Forest Service. I give you these photographs to whet your appetite as the mill is just about two miles off the LHW. (Directions below.)

The surviving mill buildings

The mill machinery was belt-driven

Photo opportunities are everywhere

As always use caution: this is prime snake country.

The junction with the LHW is here:  39° 18.509’N 115° 30.398’W

Belmont Mill is located about two miles south of the LHW here:   39° 16.593’N 115° 30.868’W

Probably your best access is from Hamilton:  39° 15.684’N 115° 29.283’W  Take the road that runs north – Forest Road 401.

There is an access point off Hwy 50 here:  39° 23.661’N  115° 31.547’W  Turn south and head for the junction listed above. (Note: I have not verified this road.)

Until next time, happy traveling!
