Triumphant trail workers get ready for a day of work at the head of the Toiyabe Crest National Recreation Trail. The crew will be working and camping along the trail until the snow falls.
Measuring over 70 miles long and taking hikers over 11,000 feet above sea level, the Toiyabe Crest Trail is Nevada's longest non-motorized trail. It provides access to grazing allotments for ranchers, and is popular among western hunters in the fall. The trail also receives hundreds of recreational visitors each season. The two-year program to improve the trail is sponsored by the White Pine/Nye County Secure Rural Schools Act and the Recreational Trails Program, which is administered through Nevada State Parks.
