Welcome to the Humbolt-Toiyabe National Forest
Plan Your Next Adventure!
Explore the diverse landscapes of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. From towering snow-capped peaks to wide-open sage steppes, the Forest is known for its many recreational opportunities.
The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s spectacular 6.3 million acres make it the largest National Forest in the lower 48 states. The Forest does not resemble most other National Forests in that it has numerous fairly large but non-contiguous sections scattered across most of the state of Nevada and a portion of eastern California. Forest offices are located in Austin, Carson City, Elko, Ely, Las Vegas, Sparks, Tonopah, Wells, and Winnemucca in Nevada and Bridgeport in California.
