day hike, midweek, jarbidge ridge hike, northern nevada

Hike the major peaks of the Jarbidge range of northern Nevada in a day, plus about 1/2 day drive time each way. These are located in the Jarbidge Wilderness in the Humboldt National Forest about 50 miles NW of Wells. With an early start from the Jarbidge FS campground, we will hike 5 peaks in a long day and add a 6th if we have time. The high point is Matterhorn Peak at an elevation of 10,839 feet. It is about 15 miles round trip with a lot of up and down elevation, much of which is off trail on gravel and talus, but not especially technical. The size of the group will be limited to six so we can move as a quick and coordinated group and be done by dark. You must be able to hike long distance in rough terrain with lots of elevation gain. Contact Dennis to register and determine meeting and carpooling specifics. Carpool groups can determine their own timing but plan on getting to the Jarbidge campground early enough on Wednesday evening to allow for a very early start on Thursday, July 4th. To support local business, I plan on eating at least one meal at the Outdoor Inn in Jarbidge.
