Travel Nevada by Highway

Interstate 80Interstate 80 extends 410 miles from the edge of the great Bonneville Salt Flat at Wendover to the eastern foothills of the Sierra Nevada a few miles west of Verdi. It passes through small towns, small cities and big cities, a route once cursed for its miserable hardships and now so easy that it can be dismissed as boring. Properly experienced, I-80 is a symphony written in mountains, sagebrush and sky and each stop along the way a small adventure.

US 95 has the longest run of any major highway in Nevada, totaling 705 miles from the Oregon border at McDermitt to the California line about 20 miles east of Laughlin. It coincides with I-80 for 116 miles west from Winnemucca, and traverses eight counties (nine if you count the 76 miles of 95-A from Schurz to Fernley). Walker Lake sparkles beside it in the summer sun, and side roads lead to hidden treasures like Christmas Tree Pass, Gold Point and Paradise Valley.

US 6 is the real “Loneliest Road”, crossing Nevada’s empty outback from Montgomery Pass at the California line to Great Basin National Park at the Utah line. In those 297 miles through wide open spaces there are only three towns of more than 100 people, Baker, Ely and Tonopah. Most days you’ll have the road to yourself.
