Here Is The Most Remote, Isolated Spot In Nevada And It’s Positively Breathtaking

Don’t believe the foreboding Shoshone legends. The most remote, isolated spot in Nevada isn’t haunted by a “weird beastly creature.” And even if it were, Jarbidge Wilderness is so positively breathtaking, you might be willing to take your chances.

Jarbidge Wilderness and the remote, isolated town of Jarbidge are located in the northeast corner of Nevada; so northeast that they’re practically in Idaho. This truly isolated area is so remote it requires at least three hours of driving over gravel roads to get there. You’ll drive 102 miles north from Elko (only 55 of them on paved roads).
