Nevada Trails


The scorching desert sun adds some danger to Nevada's barren trails. 

Nevada, located in the western U.S., is known for its mountainous landscape — more than 30 of Nevada's peaks rise above 11,000 feet, and its highest point, Boundary Peak, reaches 13,140 feet.

The Great Basin dominates most of the state, while the Mojave Desert stretches into southern Nevada from California. Here, bright copper-colored mountains dot the landscape.
