The Nevada Highway 50 Survival Challenge: The Loneliest Road in America

In July 1986, Life magazine described Nevada’s Highway 50 from Baker to Dayton as the “Loneliest Road in America.” Life recommended that drivers have “survival skills” to travel the route. The Highway 50 Survival Guide is a challenge to travelers to learn for themselves about America’s Loneliest Road. Take the trip across Nevada’s backcountry, stop in any five of the seven largest towns (Baker, Ely, Eureka, Austin, Fallon, Dayton, and Fernley) to get your Official Highway 50 Survival Guide validated.
