This Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Back Country Byway loops around the base of a so-called island range of jagged volcanic peaks, some bearing the names of such land-speed legends as John Cobb, Sir Malcolm Campbell and “Terrible” Teddy Tetzlaff. It’s a convenient side trip off I-80 and is particularly beautiful in the light of late afternoon. Roads spur from the main loop road into Jenkins, Cave, Silver Island and Donner canyons. From these spurs, hikers can access ridges that lead to the main peaks. It’s best in spring and fall.
