This Secluded Nevada Wilderness Is Truly Awe Inspiring And You’ll Want To Visit

Water Canyon rises almost 2,000 feet above the town of Winnemucca in Humboldt County where it is the county seat and only incorporated city. Named for a 19th-century Paiute Chief, Winnemucca translates to “one moccasin.” Secluded Water Canyon is both picturesque and rugged with areas of aspen and cottonwood trees rising high above the stream at the bottom of the canyon. This gorgeous secluded Nevada wilderness is perfect for picnicking, biking, hiking, nature viewing, photography, and limited ATV-ing on the few primitive roads leading up into the Sonoma Mountains.
