Home Page   Nevada Highway 318 runs north and south through the White River Valley from US Highway 6 south of Ely, Nevada, to a junction with US Highway 93, just south of Hiko, Nevada.

The maps also show a Nevada State Route 38 that shares the route with State Route 318 for the most part, and runs parallel with State Route 318 for a smaller part.

I'm not sure that Cave Valley Road actually comes all the way out to Nevada State Route 318. However, if it does, it would do so at this point opposite Fox Mountain.
