Featured SNOWMOBILE TRAILS
Northeast of Elko and south of Jarbidge, the Charleston / Jarbidge area has popular snowmobiling. The North Fork Charleston and Jarbidge recreation area typically features up to 30 feet of snow.
Southeast of Elko, the Ruby Mountains are popular with snowmobiliers. The Ruby Mountains are just southeast of Elko and offer sledders riding from about 6,500 feet right on up to 10,000 feet. Ruby Lake (6,012 feet) gets about four feet of snow a year, but the surrounding mountains get much more.
Northwest of Elko, the Adobe Range filled with vast, open snowmobiling meadows that extend for hundreds of acres. Adobe Summit (elev. 6,548 feet) is where sledders will find big, open meadows and elevations that rise 2,000 feet. The range runs north to Swales Mountain and on to Lone Mountain.
North of Elko, the Wild Horse Reservoir, Gold Creek and Merrit Mountain (elev. 8,792 feet) areas offer miles and miles of open snowmobiling country. About 65 miles north of Elko, snowmobile riders exploring the Wild Horse Reservoir, Gold Creek and Merrit Mountain area will discover more terrain to explore than any single visit can exploit.
