AAA Editor Notes

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, 6 mi. n. on Blue Diamond Rd., is in a scenic location at the base of Wilson Cliffs. German actress Vera Krupp was the most notorious resident; although she sold the ranch to Howard Hughes in 1967, it is not known whether Hughes himself ever visited. Visitors can explore the main ranch house and the grounds. A guided tour includes the bunkhouse and other outbuildings, the Wilson cemetery and interpretive trails showcasing native plants. Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
$9 (per private out-of-state vehicle); $7 (per private in-state vehicle with Nevada resident ID).
