    Has anyone ever ridden Jefferson Summit Road from Belmont to Round Mountain?

    According to the NFS Motor Vehicle Use Map, it is open to motorized vehicles. When I look at the area around the old Jefferson Mine and Townsite, it does not appear to go thru. All the hiking reports for Jefferson Summit I have found online have them getting to the trailhead from the Belmont side. I contacted Nye county but was unable to talk to anyone who knew if it is passable or not.

    Thanks!

    Yes it's open and a great ride, I ride it several times each year.

    Unfortunately the Belmont Inn is closed and for sale.
