300 miles from Salt Lake City and 220 miles from Reno
, Battle Mountain
is a popular stop for long distance travelers on I-80, though facilities are very limited. The town adjoins the Humboldt River
to the north and is within sight of three distant mountain ranges, separated by wide valleys, which as well as the interstate provide a route for the only other main road into town, Hwy 305
. The town center has a few shops, bars, casinos, restaurants and motels, accessed from three exits; the central one (231) is the location of the only supermarket and chain lodging in the area. Other locations include a golf course, hospital, rodeo grounds and airstrip.
