Happy motorcyclist

The raid is curvy but not so technically challenging that you can't take time to enjoy the beautiful high desert scenery. Road is in excellent repair and well marked.

Lamoille Canyon is absolutely stunning. We only had 1/2 day to experience it which allowed for a great scenic drive and a 2.5, 4 mile rugged hike to Dollar Lakes and the Lamoille Lake. Even thought it is end of June there was still a lot of snow on the trail which made it a bit harder, but also more... More

On our drive from Ely Nevada to Great Basin National Park, the road takes one to a section of the Humboldt National Forest. There are pretty trees and mountain vistas to see. There is also hiking and more to do in this area.

Not sure about the park boundaries, but we went hiking and exploring among the glacier-carved valleys of Lamoille Canyon in the Ruby Mountains. BLM land so it's free day hiking. We saw snow, beaver dams, waterfalls, and lots of pretty flowers. Even the easy nature hike is worthwhile.

We were there for the better part of the morning and only scratched the surface. So much more I'd like to see for next time. Can't wait to go back!

Lamoille canyon is one beautiful place. Just outside Elko and easy to get to. We did the Island Lake trail. It's about 2 miles one way and very beautiful hike. You have great views of the canyon. We did the nature trail also and it was so beautiful with the Aspens turning color. If you have a chance to go... More

This was a beautiful drive, not too difficult to find out from Elko. It's a few miles to get to the base of the mountains, and then the drive up within the canyon is not long. There are plenty of pullouts for taking lots of pictures, including a couple with picnic areas and toilets. No scenic lake at the end,... More

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
