Microwave Road in the majestic Toiyabe National Fores offers magnificent landscapes and tranquil seclusion. The trail winds through a captivating terrain adorned with sage, pinyon, and juniper trees. The 9-mile trail is just off Nevada Highway 338, south of Wellington, Nevada. Microwave Road is a well-maintained gravel track wide enough for two vehicles to pass and is fine for passenger cars. The trail ends at a microwave station and tower.
While dispersed camping is permitted in Toiyabe National Forest, no discernible dispersed campsites were apparent along the trail. Ten miles from the Microwave Road trailhead, Desert Creek Campground offers year-round camping. Managed by the Forest Service, this campground caters to both tent and trailer camping, and reservations are unnecessary. Water and restroom facilities are not available at this location.
