My husband and I had a blast driving down the highway. We loved the wide open spaces and the small towns along the way. Most of all, we loved stamping the Loneliness Highway Passport which can be picked up at any business or point of interest that has the Loneliest Highway sign displayed. Because we were traveling early in the... More

I traveled this road last week and it was awesome. It is much mire scenic than the routine i-80. You can go at the speed of your choice as there are not may cops or even towns on this road. This is a beautiful road to travel and i recommend that you have and AWD or snow tires in winter.... More

We road this on our motorcycle after coming through the California Mountains so the day was a long bit of just about everything. US50 is worth doing if you love 2-lane road travel. It isn't the most desolate road we've been on (by far), but the great expanses and endless sky make it wonderful. We rolled through a few "towns"... More

We travel between San Francisco and Salt Lake City once or twice a year. Your choices are boring interstate 80 or scenic 50 south of Provo. 80 will get you there faster, but not by much. 50 seems to go by faster, with the winding road between the mountains and the ups and downs through the passes. Not to mention... More

Road trips are fun when you are sitting munching on something , listening to music and looking around taking in the views and just relaxing :) We had to cross the loneliest road and it took most of our day on the road to reach our destination, Once in a while did find a car from opposite direction and due...

We drove this road from Great Basin to Reno. It was lonely but not terribly lonely. We found stops along the way for gas and food. You definitely need to plan your drive but that's expected. Also compared to other roads cellular is pretty good. We had just driven from Zion to Great Basin and that was desolate.

We started our drive to California in Denver on I-70, then on to Highway 50. The scenery along Highway 50 is pretty, it got flatter and more desert-like as we headed west. Stop for gas wherever you can, there aren't many towns along the way.

You better fill up on the Eastern start or the Western start because there are very few gas options along the main stretch of the highway. There are several summits along the drive. Many pullouts to enjoy the scenery. Would be a beautiful drive on a Motorcycle or in a Convertible.

Having grown up in Las Vegas, I've been to some of the towns and cities along the route, but this was my first time on the entire length of Hwy. 50 across Nevada. Be sure to pick up a free souvenir passport at the start of your drive. They'll send you a nice certificate if you get it stamped and... More

Highway 50 is certainly a lonely highway, the loneliest? It is one of the most desolate, make sure your gas tank is full all the time. The scenery is spectacular, especially Utah and Colorado.
