Of all the places I have traveled, I have found few that can rival my love for Lamoille Canyon and the Humboldt National Forest. It is a great place to visit year-round, for various reasons, but the two most beautiful times to visit and spring and autumn. I cannot put into words how worth the trip this wonderful location is.... More

We enjoyed visiting various sections of the Humboldt National Forest on our trip to Elko, We visited an area of the forest in the Lamoille Canyon area. The area was very nice with a river that runs through the area. The trees were so pretty. There were other areas of the forest we also visited. The Humboldt National Forest is... More

Just twenty miles East of Elko is the Humboldt National Forest, the scenic byway of the RUBY MOUNTAINS WILDERNESS was amazing, a MUST SEE. Dubbed, "Lamoille Glaciers" the road ends at 9600 feet and has several moderate hiking trails with explanations of how the mountains were formed by glaciers. Very informative, very pleasant and breath-taking views. I came back a... More

I went up in May and there were a ton of little waterfalls from the melting snow. I hiked up to one and the view was breath taking. It was such a pretty drive through the canyon. Definitely worth the drive from Elko.

I grew up living just outside the Humbolt National Forest. So this review is somewhat biased. After experiencing many national forests and alpine regions in the country, the Humbolt is the standard that I compare them against. It is what I think a National Forest should be like. From the Rubies to the Jarbidge Wilderness, it is world class, high... More

The drive into Lamoille Canyon is breathtaking. There is still snow on the peaks in July and the waterfalls and creek are running. Great hiking. There are pit toilets at the turn-around, but no drinking water, so bring your own. Lovely picnic area. The road is in good shape.
