Named after the fabled Incan lost city of gold, the Eldorado Mountains have been some of the richest mining areas in Southern Nevada. Spanish adventurers were said to have discovered gold in these hills in the 1700s. The region’s heyday lasted from 1864 to 1930.During this period, the Techatticup Mine, the richest of the region, produced more than $46 million in gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc. Although you probably won’t find gold along the way, the geologic and floral riches of the area will become clear as the colors of the soil change under your feet, reflecting the rich oranges, browns, pinks, and blacks in the jumbled peaks rising overhead. Growing around you are at least six species of cacti, as well as creosote and blackbrush. Avoid this trip during storms, as flash floods can be a problem. In October 1974, a flash flood up to 30 feet deep roared down the wash, destroying 31 homes and the marina resort at the landing on the Colorado River. Vehicle: Passenger car.
