These 8 Hidden Waterfalls In Nevada Will Take Your Breath Away

As the driest state in the country, it’s hard to imagine Nevada is overflowing with natural waterfalls. In fact, most maps of waterfalls in the nation ignore our state completely. Yet Nevada is home to several hidden waterfalls that will take your breath away.

They’re no Niagara Falls; they’re not as powerful or wide, but the hidden waterfalls of Nevada are impressive in their unexpectedness. Many are an oasis in the desert, formed by melting snow or excessive rainfall, while others flow from rivers and creeks (yes, we have some of those). Depending on the time of year you may be greeted by a gush or a trickle. Either way, Nevada’s hidden waterfalls are a refreshing way to cool off.

If you plan to explore any of Nevada’s hidden waterfalls, you’re probably in for a hike. Be sure to bring drinking water, sunscreen, good shoes and a camera.
