The Toiyabe Range is second highest of the great north-south ranges of Central Nevada, but perhaps the most scenic. Longer and much wider than most Great Basin ranges, it has a number of high summits and a large federally-protected wilderness area.

As an illustration of how little use a range like the Toiyabe gets, on the author's ascent of Bunker Hill (11,474') in 1992, the range's second highest peak, he didn't see a soul the whole way, and the summit register had about five entries per year in it, most of them from personnel servicing the various antennas nearby.
