About the author:
The author has a serious problem- he doesn't know what he wants to do when he grows up. Meanwhile, he's done such things as wildland fire fighting, running a mountain shop, flying airplanes, shooting photos, and writing books. He's a backcountry skier, climber, figure skater, mountain biker, amateur radio operator, river runner, and sea kayaker- but the thing that really floats his boat is hiking and backpacking. No matter what else he tries, the author always come back to hiking- especially long, rough, cross-country trips in places like the Grand Canyon. Some people never learn. But what little he has learned, he's willing share with you- via his books, of course, but also via his websites, blogs, and whatever works.

Exploring Great Basin National Park

Including Mount Moriah Wilderness

Authored by Bruce Grubbs

Revised and updated February 2015

Exploring Great Basin National Park is a guide to both the national park and the adjacent Mount Moriah Wilderness. Although many visitors stay at the park for just a few hours, the purpose of this book is to encourage you to stay longer and explore the park as well as the surrounding Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. You can camp at one of the four campgrounds in the park, camp on the adjacent Bureau of Land Management lands or the national forest, or stay at a motel or hotel in nearby Baker or Ely. If you are new to the area you should certainly take the tour of Lehman Caves and a drive up the Wheeler Peak Scenic Road. But these barely scratch the surface of this diverse area. Check out the opportunities for stargazing, bird watching, hiking, fishing, pine nut gathering, bicycling, horseback riding, picnicking, and more.
