Came up from Elko. Great drive, dirt road and long (50 miles, one way!). Used a Dodge Ram 1500 lifted 4x4, but a stock Jeep or other 4x4 would be fine in good weather.

Jarbidge is wayyyyyy up in the mountains along the Nevada/Idaho border. Great camping and if you feel lucky you might just pan a gold nugget or two out of the stream bed.
