In regard to community events and outdoor recreation, Pershing County is rich in opportunities. Typically held the last weekend in July, the Lovelock Frontier Days are a three-day event with live music, games for all ages and a parade. Also held in Lovelock, the Sean Miller Memorial Ranch Rodeo runs in late May and includes team roping, tie down roping and big loop cow roping.
For outdoor recreation and fresh air, citizens and visitors seek out the Humboldt Range. These hikes run from Imlay in the north to the junction in the West Humboldt Range in the south. The Humboldt Range is home to Star Peak, which is the highest point in Pershing. Other outdoor recreation activities include hunting for turkeys, pheasants, chuckers, big horn sheep and mountain lions. ATV and UTV riding is also popular in Pershing, and riders can visit the Dun Glen trails located just northeast of Imlay and Mill City.
Those seeking some history and unique finds in Pershing can visit one of the nine ghost towns, such as Star City or Farrell. Most famously, visitors can attend Burning Man, one of the state’s unique events that takes place each year. Located in the Black Rock Desert, this event brings in over 70,000 people from around the world and is generally held the week prior to Labor Day.
