 "Black Butte Road" doesn't exist. However, I am using this name for a loose conglomeration of unnamed roads from Old Spanish Trail Road to Sandy Valley Road.

Black Butte.

Black Butte is a 200 m high, northwest-trending ridge located at the center of the southernmost Pahrump Valley and is composed of ~1000 m of northeast-dipping sedimentary and volcanic strata (Guest, et al., 2007). The likely source of these sediments is Devil Peak, approximately 30 km to the south. The offset between these two locations across the Stateline Fault System, is one line of evidence for at least 30 km of dextral slip along the fault.
