This Tiny, Isolated Nevada Village Is One Of The Last Of Its Kind

The unincorporated community of Jarbidge is located north of Elko, not far from the Idaho-Nevada border. While remote, this tiny isolated Nevada village is a former mining town and spectacular wilderness area that provides breathtaking views of pristine panoramas. You will be charmed by the rugged look and feel of this part of the state. Dirt roads and no cell phone coverage make way for friendly locals and a spellbinding history.

If you choose to visit Jarbidge, be wary during the winter when snowdrifts can make the dirt roads almost impassible from the Nevada side.
