Along the Loneliest Road in America, US-50, Eureka has made itself known as one of the best-preserved historical mining towns in Nevada. To gain more tourist travel, several new trails have been designed and built just along the outskirts of the city.
Eureka is situated in Diamond Valley, and is bordered by two mountain ranges, the Diamond Mountains and Fish Creek Range. These mountains make for great exploring and a beautiful scenery.
