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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
