There is nothing special about this this highway but long straightaways, miles and miles of desert with the mountains that surround Area 51 off to the west. The magic here is all about Area 51 and the secrets of what is beyond those mountains.

There isn't much out here but the views. Doesn't matter as they are absolutely incredible. It's a beautiful area. Sorry, didn't see any aliens.

The road itself is in good shape. We drove it coming from Vegas to Rachel to check out Area 51. The stickers on the road sign are multiplying and make an awesome photo. Don't expect much on this highway except for except for alien food, aka, cows. You might not want to drive it late at night if tired as... More

Extraterrestrial Highway. We went, we saw, we drove.... and drove.... because we knew that sooner or.... "later" ..... we would find answers.... There were hints and eerie feelings and I can't say for sure if what we saw was real or a mirage... but I know the truth is out there and when you go you might find what you... More

I hopped on the highway at the northern section, coming from Tonopah and it is quite the beginning of a really cool road. It dead ends right before a huge hunk of rock! The drive is long and not very winding, but has some interesting twists and turns and ups and downs. I have never shared a road with cows... More

Awesome! We were a group of 6 geocachers caching the trail and had a blast! We saw so many incredible beautiful scenic areas, words don't do it justice. We saw antelopes, elk, wild horses, cattle, coyote, jack rabbits and snow covered mountains. The highway is lonely but worth travelling. Watch out for the cattle, they do dart out and you... More

Extraterrestrial Highway itself is a long and straight road but there some cool places to stop along the way. The road sign, Alien Research Center and especially Little A'le'inn.

We drove from Vegas to Rachel Nevada and it was an amazing drive. Loved everything about it, definitely worth a drive into the desert if yo are ever out there.

You just have to have a photo taken under the sign - it's just good fun if you don't take it all too seriously!
