Perched along Interstate 80 between Winnemucca and Elko, visitors will find that Battle Mountain is the perfect place to jump out of the car for a refreshing breather, and dive into Nevada’s impressive back country. Contrary to its name, Battle Mountain has never actually seen any sort of noteworthy conflict, but instead was established and continues to depend on the railroad, agriculture and mining industries. Best yet, the area is tremendously rich with American Indian and Basque heritage.
