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.

Whether you want to do some serious hiking in the Ruby Mountains or are limited by time or mobility issues, a trip up the 13 mile Lamoille Canyon Road National Scenic Byway will long be remembered. Called "the Alps of Nevada", the mountains have it all-snow capped peaks, mountain streams, waterfalls (especially in Spring), canyons and breathtaking vistas. Along the... More

This place has it all for outdoors. We did several 5 mile hikes to lakes and waterfalls. Beautiful scenery everywhere you look. Awesome sites, smells and sounds. Nature at it's best. Tons to do for all ages. Second trip there and will not be out last.

These are some amazing mountains with hardly any traffic at all, on either the roads or trails, when I visited just after Memorial Day weekend. Felt like I had the place all to myself to enjoy. Consider visiting the Forest Service ranger station in Elko, on Last Chance Drive, near the Toyota dealer, for current info and maps. For $10... More

Wonderful scenery. Aspens turning gold. Took short hike at end of canyon - there are lakes, tho we didn't go that far. Easy parking & bathrooms at parking area at end of Canyon. Visited O'Carroll's in Lamoille for cup of soup afterwards. Church at the Crossroads very picturesque at end of town.

I took my 3 children to Lamoille Canyon as a 'less traveled' part of our western trip. We did the hike up to Lomolille Lake and wish we had take other trails farther up. The scenery was great. The hike was fairly easy (probably moderate for most people) and taking our time we got to the late in just under... More

Hiked to Lamoille Lake past brilliant wildflowers on well maintained, clearly marked trails. Absolutely no litter; every dog was on a leash .... great place, could have stayed all day.

Don't forget the Native American portion of the name! Been in the Elko area for 2 weeks now. Have spent the better part of 8 days driving off-road and to remote areas of the "Rubys" and the "Jarbidge Wilderness". Have enjoyed it tremendously!!!
