special linksHannan Range HP
40.535826, -118.978963 (Dec Deg)
6988+ 2034 feet of prominence
The Hannan range is another very isolated and seldom visited mountain range located to the northwest of Lovelock Nevada. However, with 2034 feet of prominence, its highest point does attract the interest of dedicated peakbaggers who are chasing the Nevada prominence peaks. At the time of my visit, about 15 others had visited in the 15 years that a register had been on the summit but only 4 had been there between 1999 and 2010. As interest in climbing prominence peaks increased, so has the number of visitors.
This area is truly "out there" with most of the miles required to get to the trailhead on the east side being on dirt roads.
Located across the valley from Seven Troughs Peak, it makes sense to add this one to the
7 T's getting thereThere are several ways to get to the area and a study of Benchmark's mapbook of Nevada and topo maps are worth studying. I used Benchmark and made waypoints on most of the roads using my National geographic topo DVD. I will provide the information on the roads I used but I caution you to do your homework for getting out to this area and being sure to let others know where you are going and how long to expect you to be gone. Cell coverage is spotty and so be aware that once you get north of Lovelock, you may not have cell communication.
I-80, exit 106 in Lovelock.(Remember that odometer readings may be slightly different for you) Take Main St west about .5 mile to N. Meridian and turn right. Go north on N. Meridian about 1.5 miles to Pitt Rd (NV 399). This is a good paved road heading west. At about 11.7 miles you'll see a sign for the Seven Troughs/Sulfur road on the right. Leaving the pavement, you'll find yourself on a good quality gravel/dirt road. In about 4.7 miles on this road take the left fork (signed) and in another 3.3 miles or so, the road takes a sharp left and heads up toward a pass in the Seven Troughs Range. On the other side of the range at about 19+ miles from NV 399 I passed a corral on my left and in another 1.5 miles I turned right on an unsigned road that headed north up the Hannan/Seven Troughs valley. Drive about 6 miles north on this road and take the left fork shown on the Benchmark map and head for Hannah Springs. That is where the climb up the east side begins, at Hannah Springs.
