Adventurous Travel in Nevada with a Jeep for Hire
Touring the State in a Jeep Rental
Those who rent a Jeep in Nevada understand that the terrain isn’t always ideal. Sometimes the road less traveled requires the use of a sporty 4x4. You can still drive in luxury when you get behind the wheel of a Jeep Wrangler. This five-passenger SUV is plenty capable with its 3.8-liter V6 engine and 285 horsepower.
If you require something more sophisticated for your trip, you’ll enjoy the Jeep Grand Cherokee. While it has the same 3.8-liter V6 engine as the Wrangler, it does output 360 horsepower instead. Another popular option is the Jeep Sahara. This SUV has a 3.6-liter V6 engine and 285 horsepower.
Memorable Trips in Nevada
Great Basin National Park
Wide open spaces
When you are sitting in your Jeep Wrangler, it makes sense to head to the Great Basin National Park. There’s more to do here than can be accomplished in just one day. Start at the Lehman Cave ecosystem and then head to the 13,000-foot tall Wheeler Peak. There’s also ancient pine trees and ample opportunity to star gaze. As you head to Wheeler Peak, make sure you take your SUV for a ride on the 12-mile scenic drive. This is also where you’ll find the trailheads for Bristlecone Trail and Wheeler Peak Summit Trail.
When you are done at the Great Basin National Park, it’s easy to head back to Las Vegas over a few days, or just hit U.S. 50 westbound to end up in Reno. With your Wrangler, there’s nothing on the road that you can’t handle. Weather conditions and road hazards won’t stop you from having the time of your life.
Las Vegas to Pahrump
Part of the Death Drive
Feel the adventure
Start off a fun journey in your Jeep Grand Cherokee in Las Vegas. This city is alive at all hours, full of shopping, adventure, fine dining and entertainment. From here, you have a good starting point to Death Valley, but even if you don’t make it that far, you can at least head to Pahrump which is about 72 miles away. Along the way, stop at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park first. There are natural springs on site as well as green lawns. It’s only about 30 minutes from the center of Las Vegas and is part of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Take pictures with the red rock formations and wild burros.
If you are hungry, stop at the Mountain Springs Saloon, which is 15 minutes outside. For a nice end to your Death Drive, stop at Coffinwood. This carpenter builds coffins and he features coffin-shaped items like Ping-Pong tables, purses and jewelry for sale. He’ll even take custom orders. With the help of your Jeep rental, you don’t have to worry about the heat as you sit inside your air-conditioned SUV, relaxing along the journey.
