State Route 264

Home » Guides » Nevada » State Route 264

Nevada 264 extends 33.6 miles north from the end of California 266 in Fish Lake Valley to U.S. 6 in Esmeralda County. Traveling through a mix of open desert and agriculural areas, the state route takes a fairly linear route north from Mono County, California to the unincorporated town of Dyer. Beyond the lone population center on Nevada 264, the highway turns north, parallel to the eastern foothills of the White Mountains.

Heading out of Fish Lake Valley, SR 264 meets SR 773, which branches 10.5 miles northeast to connect with U.S. 6 east to Coaldale and U.S. 95. SR 264 angles northwest across the Volcanic Hills to connect with U.S. 6 a mile and a half east of the Mineral County line.

Nevada 264 north
Postmile 0.0 for SR 264 in Esmeralda County, Nevada accompanies the pavement change where SR 266 in Mono County, California ends. Photo taken 01/19/02.
Nevada 264 proceeds north through Fish Lake Valley toward the Volcanic Hills. The only town in the valley is Dyer, which is billed as a tourist destination and gateway to Yosemite National Park. An older billboard along Nevada 264 advertised the notion of Dyer as a gateway. However, there is no true direct route from there to Yosemite. Photo taken 01/19/02.
Northbound Nevada 264 partitions with Nevada 773 ahead of the Volcanic Hills. Nevada 264 turns northwest from this point to connect with U.S. 6 west to Bishop, California. Nevada 773 leads northeast to connect with U.S. 6 east to U.S. 95 and Tonopah. Photo taken 01/19/02.
