Cathedral Gorge: A Rural Getaway for Nevadans and International Visitors (Video)


In our latest #TourismMeansMore video, we go to Cathedral Gorge State Park, just a couple of hours from Las Vegas and 7 hours from Reno, Nevada.

Cathedral Gorge State Park​ is located in a long, narrow valley in southeastern Nevada, where erosion has carved dramatic and unique patterns in the soft bentonite clay. The park’s beauty began with explosive volcanic activity that, with each eruption, deposited layers of ash hundreds of feet thick.

Great walking trails abound for exploring the cave-like formations and cathedral-like spires that are the result of geologic processes from tens of millions of years ago. A photographer’s dream, the park offers stunning views of the scenic canyon and visitors can enjoy hiking, picnicking, camping and nature study.
