The Wild West Challenge is a minimal assistance adventure challenge between two of America’s most notorious cities — Los Angeles and Las Vegas — but, in between, participants will also pass some truly incredible nature. From otherworldly lakes to colorful deserts, teams visit some astonishing scenery, and no trip to America wouldn’t be complete without seeing a forest. There are few better than Humbolt-Toiyabe National Forest, the largest such forest in the contiguous United States.

You can find Humbolt-Toiyabe National Forest in North-Western Nevada and (partially) in Eastern California. It spreads between Eastern California, across Nevada to the borders with Idaho and Utah.
How Big is Humbolt-Toiyabe National Forest?

What’s So Special about Humbolt-Toiyabe National Forest?
The forest area’s sheer variety makes it a special place to explore. There are canyon, mountains, and cliffs, plus the remains of ancient volcanic rock.
