If you’re a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic Lord of the Rings saga, you might think that Nevada isn’t a likely place to find your own lush “Middle Earth.”

Take a visit to the Toiyabe National Forest, which covers much of Nevada and a small area of Eastern California. The Toiyabe is the largest national forest in the lower 48 states. Taking a hike on this one trail conjures up the feeling of walking through elven forests and on green bobbit hills.

Tolkien fans, have you found other “magical” places in Nevada that transport you to your own “Middle Earth?” Share in the comments section!
