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!

Great scenic drive from Las Vegas to Rachel and some part along the Extra-terrestrial Highway. Road endless and empty - just awesome.

Tip: This is an open range, so be very careful of the cows. AND gas up before you go! We loved the solitude, watching for aircraft, and didn't mind dodging the cows, since it was light out. We also enjoyed the Little Al'Ie Inn, Area 51 gate, etc.

Had always wanted to travel 375. Made the mistake of leaving Tonopah at dusk and drove to Rachel in the dark. Lots of cattle and animals on the road. Had to stop and take picture's of all the signs in the morning.

The little alien in is about 2 hours drive from Las Vegas. We also went to the alien museum which is at the beginning of the extraterrestrial highway, unfortunately it was closed but we still got a photograph of the large man made alien that stands outside. We called in at the alien in to buy some drinks and souvenirs.... More
