There’s A Gorgeous Forest Hiding In The Middle Of Nevada’s Very Own Alps And You’ll Want To Find It

The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is located primarily in Nevada and parts of eastern California and is the largest national forest in the US outside of Alaska at 6.3 million acres. The Humboldt area sits in northern and eastern Nevada, in the counties of Elko, Humboldt, Lincoln, Nye, and White Pine within the Ruby Mountains. These mountains are known as Nevada’s Alps because this range contains ten majestic peaks over 10,000 feet in altitude, as well as clear lakes, scenic hiking trails, breathtaking panoramic views, and a gorgeous forest. Take a look at this slice of paradise right here in Nevada.
