Join us on an exploratory trip with the Sierra Club to a wild and remote corner of central Nevada. We'll be exploring and hiking portions of the Volcanic Hills and Rhyolite Ridge area. This will be a fun weekend camping under the stars in the Nevada backcountry. More details to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Friends of Nevada Wilderness has largely documented the overwhelming wilderness qualities of these areas and are interested in introducing the general public to this largely unknown but vastly wild country. The public will have the chance to urge the BLM to protect these areas as "Lands with Wilderness Characteristics" in the upcoming Battle Mountain District Resource Management Plan.
Come out, explore, and speak up for the wild heart of Nevada!
