Arc Dome Wilderness Trip Report
One of Nevada's highest mountains lends its name to 115,000 acres of wilderness land. The Arc Dome Wilderness, located in the Toiyabe Range, can be accessed from all four points of the compass. The 72 mile long Toiyabe Crest Trail, at Ophir Summit, is found to the north of Arc Dome. Although the land prohibits motorized vehicles, the area is widely used. Pastimes of fishing, hunting, horseback riding, backpacking and hiking are popular in the western Nevada preserve. All of the wilderness users are asked to use proper etiquette by packing out all trash and leaving no trace.
