Home » Guides » Nevada » State Route 265 - Silver Peak Road

Nevada State Route 265 spurs 20.47 miles south from U.S. 6/95 to the community of Silver Peak in Esmeralda County. Starting at Blair Junction, SR 265 (Silver Peak Road) leads south from U.S. 6/95 across Big Smoky Valley, west of the Weepah Hills. Approaching Silver Peak, the rural highway straddles the east slopes of Mineral Ridge into Clayton Valley.

Silver Peak, an unincorporated town with a history steeped in silver and gold mining in the 19th century, lies adjacent to a lithium extraction facility in nearby Clayton Valley.
