Back in the 1860's the pioneers who came to Rockland would have to traverse through Nye Canyon to make their way to the top of the Pine Grove Hills. It was at the time the only stagecoach wagon route through these mountains but also very rugged. I would try to reach Rockland which stands at 8,500' driving through snow, pools of mud, over rocks and through brush as it scrapes the side of the jeep. Today you can take either the Pine Grove Rockland Road or the old Wellington Wagon Route through Nye Canyon. Either way both require 4wd and you will work to reach Rocklands various sites of interest. This was my first expedition I never made it to Rockland the snow had gotten to deep and while on the road I reached a huge pile of boulders covered in snow having to turn back. So instead I visited one of Rockland's mines where we had a nice picnic, shot some air rifles and found some deer bones at. We would definitely come back for a second expedition only this time avoiding Nye Canyon and taking another route to reach this boom town site.
