The name is derived from a series of seven stock watering troughs placed below a set springs.
- the Kama and Antelope ranges to the north,
- the Majuba Mountains to the northeast,
- Sage Valley and Trinity Range to the southeast with Lovelock beyond;
- Granite Springs Valley to the south,
- the Sahwave Mountains and small Blue Wing Mountains to the southwest;
- Kumiva Valley and the Selenite Range to the west and
- Black Rock Desert to the northwest.
Along the southeast margin of the range above Sage Valley are several ghost towns dating from the early 1900s which served the gold mining activity in the canyons. From northeast to southwest are the sites of Ferrell, Mazuma, Tunnel Camp and Vernon.
