Nevada's Best Adventures Off the Beaten Path
Adventuring across Nevada's Highway 50
Finding abundance on the Loneliest Road in America
@Kate Don't pay attention to the car, it was a rental and got very roughed up on the roads out! I initially got lost trying to find these as well. I remember pretty far into my drive there was a fork - I initially went left and began climbing a hill to a fresh water seep in a cattle trough. This was possibly what showed up in your GPS? Eventually I went back and took the other fork, which got me there.
Alternatively, the springs themselves are here: 41.195719, -120.389161. My last visit I just parked across the reservoir and kayaked to them.

The Morros make a beautiful image on a sunny day!
Clear night skies beside the lake!
The high elevation and lack of light pollution around Long Lake can make it an ideal spot for night photography!
Perseid meteor shower - 2017
The park is an entirely different experience at night when almost everyone has left or gone to sleep for the night. Shooting stars visible from the Devil's Backbone, as the haze of wildfires in the Cascades creates wafting streaks of color...

As of April, 2017, a lawsuit by the Sunset Ranch Hollywood Stables over the trail which passes through their property has caused the city to close the Hollyridge Trail access.
The city is currently encouraging hikers to access the trails via a parking area at the top of Canyon Drive.
Mt Lee Drive and the Lake Hollywood Drive trail both also remain open trails to access the area above the Hollywood Sign from.
Night visits to Rhyolite are beyond picturesque!
Heavy water runoff after the past Winter has given the falls a dramatic flow!
As of August 2016, the best way to hike this trail is after about 1.5-2 miles, continue to hug the right side of the canyon bottom. There's a point where the canyon wall forces you to cross the river, at this point go about 15 feet along the river and then cross back to the right. There's an easily-missed scramble up some 10 foot tall slope here that will put you into the old roadbed that you can continue on al the way to the bridge, avoiding having to hike up the wash and any additional river crossings. This may all change after the next heavy river flow.
