The state of Nevada has a wide variety of terrain to explore. It's not just desert! It includes high mountains, dunes, desert, forests, and washes. There are many trails to explore that are very close to Nevada's main attractions too - namely Carson City and Las Vegas.

Because most of Nevada is desert, please use caution and common sense when out and about. The desert's heat and distance from civilization can be a deadly combination. Please bring more water than you think you'll need, extra food, and a CB/GMRS radio. If you do get stuck alone, you may be subject to 120 degree days and sub zero nights depending on when you are and what season it is.
