Backpacking Nevada, the ultimate guide to backpacking trips in Nevada's basin and range, has 23 trips ranging from two days to two weeks. From the East Humboldt Wilderness to the Ruby Mountains and the Toiyabe Range, this guide describes the finest backpacking adventures in Nevada. Few people are aware of the vast expanse of natural beauty that lies outside the dizzying atmosphere of Nevada's Las Vegas and Reno metro areas. Venture outside the strip however, and discover untrammeled wilderness in the most mountainous state in the continental US. Explore the forests of the Carson Range, traverse the granite peaks and cascading creeks of the Santa Rosa-Paradise Peak Wilderness, or watch elk and antelope in the remote Jarbridge Mountains.
