Tikaboo Peak is a mountain in Lincoln County, Nevada, United States 26mi to the east of Area 51. It is the closest legal vantage point with a view of the area.Tikaboo Peak is used because the government closed two closer vantage points to Area 51—Freedom Ridge and White Sides—to public access in 1995, due to the number of people photographing or filming the base from these sites.

If you are heading here to look at Area 51 (this is the only legal vantage point) or try and spot some UFO's, it's about a 2 hour steep hike. Details about how to do it are at the read more link here..

If you're really dedicated to seeing some UFO action, hike to the top of nearby Tikaboo Peak... it's the only legal place to view Area 51, which is surrounded by mountains virtually on all sides. The steep hike will take about two hours, some come prepared with flashlights and other supplies.
