    : Probably the best would be Belmont. It's northeast of Tonopah, about 45 minutes to an hour. Mostly paved road, remainder graded dirt.



    : Others could be Golden Arrow, Revielle, Clifford, Silverbow. All of these are very remote (except Clifford, which is only a couple of miles south of US6) and are a bit more of a drive. All are accessible by any SUV, most shouldn't require 4x4. Photos for all of the above mentioned ghost towns are on the pages of this website.

    : I haven't been to any of the mentioned sites except Round Mountain. I used to have friend who lived there, but I haven't been there since the early 80's.
