Gerlach, Nevada

The community of Gerlach is located approximately two hours north of Reno in northwestern Nevada. Gerlach and the adjacent Black Rock Desert are home to the land speed record, Burning Man, rocketry and other unique activities. It's generally quiet out here but the folks are friendly and the night skies can't be beat. Come visit, explore the region, and discover why locals love to call this tiny hamlet home.
