Located 55 miles from Wildhorse Reservoir and a two hour drive north from Elko via gravel roads that branch off State Highway 225, Jarbidge is the most remote town in the state of Nevada. Jarbidge sits at the edge of the Jarbidge Wilderness, second largest wilderness area in Nevada over 110,000 acres of some of the wildest and least accessible wilderness area in Nevada. These mysterious and rarely visited mountains and canyons hold a vast amount of recreation opportunity within their sheer rock walls.
This remote landscape is best explored on foot or by horse. The highway is distant enough that the peaks of the wilderness are invisible from it. But peaks there are, 10,000 feet high and lightly vegetated with arid, alpine life. Creeks trickle down the mountain sides and the fisherman will find the occasional lake. Elk, deer and even mountain lions wander the slopes.
Hiker and horseback rider alike will find over 125 miles of trails to explore. Climb one of the higher mountains and find an unobstructed view of the wilds of Nevada.
