* Directions to Boyd Ranch:
Head NW on Highway 93 towards Las Vegas. Look for a Mobile gas station. If you get to a roundabout with 2 giant spurs in the middle, you have gone too far. Turn right onto Scenic Loop Rd. and continue for 8.5 miles. You will go over 5 cattle guards. Follow signs to The Boyd Ranch. Ranch will be on your right. This is a dirt road so expect a longer drive time.
