The Mt Irish Archaeological District is approximately 110 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada and 45 miles west of Caliente, Nevada.
Mt Irish appears to have been inhabited from around 3000 BP (1000 BC) to around the 1860's when silver miners came into the area. The miners stayed, forming the town of Logan and even getting a post office in 1867. By 1869, the miners had moved on to new diggings near Pioche.
The road to this site is normally in good condition, but I still recommend a high-clearance vehicle.
Coordinates for the turn off from SR 318 to Mt Irish: 37° 33.992' 115° 13.879'
To make your trip safer and easier, I recommend that you download both the "Mount Irish Trail Guide" and the "Lincoln Co. Rock Art Guide".
These guides are probably the best guides that I have come across. Lincoln County BLM, unlike Clark County BLM, has a much more progressive attitude towards getting the public involved in viewing rock art.
For more information, please contact the Caliente BLM Field Office (775) 726-8100.
The petroglyphs from this site can be viewed on the "Nevada Rock Art Sites" page of this website.
