Nevada Waterfalls are about as unlikely as they come. After all, this state is said to be the driest in the United States, which isn’t all that surprising considering that the state is dominated by the Great Basin (once part of the sea floor and then once a mighty salt lake later in its history).
Of course, all it takes is to make a visit to the state’s most famous spots like Las Vegas, Laughlin, Reno, Carson City, etc. (especially in the Summer months), and one could really appreciate why this state would be the last one in which one would expect to find a legitimate waterfall.
Nevertheless, as you can see on the waterfall map above, we did find a few decent waterfalls, and that’s where the Nevada Waterfalls page may help you experience these rare features in the desert. Each of the waterfall write-ups that this page links to provides detailed waterfall write-ups, which includes driving directions, maps, lots of photographs, videos, and nearby attractions.
So it can be a valuable resource for your own research on pursuing waterfall hikes or trails as well as trips to the state. Nonetheless, beggars can’t be choosers in a state where decent waterfalls were about as rare as winning a big jackpot while gambling in Vegas. Obviously, we’re keen on timing and making a visit to the state in the hopes of seeing more than just the small sampling of waterfalls we’ve gotten so far, but we recognize that this is really an exercise in patience and a little luck.
