Named after the first baby born in the valley, Rachel, Nevada is located along Highway 375 (the "Extraterrestrial Highway"). Rachel has services including a restaurant, bar, and motel at one end of town and a gas station/convenience store at the other end. There is also an RV park.
The town is located at the southern end of the Sand Springs Valley, a bowl-shaped valley about twenty-five miles wide. The community has been featured in magazines, books, television shows and many major newspapers as the center of UFO activity, drawing Sci-Fi fans and visitors from all over the world. The result of this publicity was the renaming of Highway 375 as “The Extraterrestrial Highway” by the Nevada State Legislature. Part of the Nevada Test Site is situated in southwestern Lincoln County, close to Rachel. However, for obvious reasons, there are no guided tours and warning signs are posted for visitors who get a little too curious.
Less than 5% of Lincoln County is privately owned, with the majority of being federal land. Most of these federal lands are open to recreational use making this area highly desirable for outdoor recreation. Nevada's largest BLM managed OHV off-road vehicle trail system, Silver State Trail, is located in Lincoln County. This provides for everything from ATV, to mountain bikes and horses. In addition to the many miles of trails there are lakes stocked with fish and plenty of hunting opportunities from bird to big game. The region also has an interesting history of mining and ranching with numerous mining ghost towns.
