Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest

Last Known StatusOpen

Once a bustling gold mining town from 1909-1932 and home of last stagecoah robbery (1916), Jarbidge provides visitors a rare glimpse into the Old West. The town is surrounded by the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and the Jarbidge Wilderness, providing scenery that is a cut above the typical desert scrub brush that is usually found throughout Nevada.

The trails are mostly hardpacked and rocky 4x4 roads that wind through mixed pine and cottonwood trees, rugged mountains, streams and rivers. Most of the routes are open to motorized use except in the wildnerness area (hiking or horseback riding only).

Big Cottonwood, Juniper Grove and The Forks campgrounds are located on the way in (if coming from the east via Rogerson, Idaho) and are ideal for those with RVs since the main road progressively gets narrower and twisty as you head up in elevation.

Restaurants, saloons, lodging, gas (debit or credit card only) and a general store is also available in town. Holiday weekends, especially Jarbidge Days (second weekend every August) are very popular.
