About Bureau of Land Management Black Rock Field Office


 

Located in northwest Nevada is the vast Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area (NCA), established by Congress in 2000 and administered by the Bureau of Land Management. Not only does the NCA contain fascinating cultural, archaeological, and paleontological traces of the past, but it also offers a rugged brand of recreation activities for today’s adventurers. What these million-plus acres lack in developed amenities, they offer in unique and challenging backcountry and wilderness opportunities. Visitors are encouraged to respect the land and other visitors by practicing Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly principles.
