Hiking in Nevada

Hiking in Nevada

Nevada is home to over 700 official and “unofficial” hiking trails.

Because there are so many we grouped them together by county and will work on adding the details once we have developed the content.

Some trails may be part of a larger hiking trail (in and out instead of completing a loop) and the information will be compiled into one article about the overall trail.

Some of the trails are “official” for the state park or national park they are part of while others are named and enjoyed by locals.

Did we miss one of your favorite trails? Drop a comment below or use our Contact Page to drop us an email with the details or to request a contributor package to write for us.

Both approaches involve a strenuous 16-mile+ round trip with over 4,000′ of elevation gain. The hike often takes all day. The hike is most accessible in the snow-free months of summer and fall.
