Great Basin National Park is the largest national park in the state of Nevada. The park is replete with remarkable national treasures, from mighty alpine lakes to limestone caverns and even small glaciers. The park is also celebrated for its striking high mountain terrain, which is sprinkled here and there with cascading mountain streams, mountain lakes and bristlecone pine trees over 4,000 years old.
Although the park boasts astounding landscapes, yet it has an oddly low number of yearly visitors. Visitors to the park in spring or fall can possibly hike for hours on backcountry trails without witnessing another soul.
This is a fairly dry region with most precipitation received during winter snows or summer thunderstorms. Winters are generally cool and summers are generally mild; however, weather conditions can fluctuate speedily, especially at the higher elevations. Be prepared for all types of weather.
