Wilderness - Nevada
The Arrow Canyon Wilderness is characterized by several striking geologic features. The Arrow Canyon Range frames the western edge, its spectacular cliff face standing several thousand feet high with a distinctive dark gray band of limestone arcing across the length of the range. A wide valley expands across the central portion of the wilderness area, its eastern reaches marked by a series of deep washes, including the nearly vertical sides of Arrow Canyon in the north. Stretching several miles long, Arrow Canyon itself is so deep and narrow that sunlight rarely reaches the bottom in places, with sheer walls 200 to 300 feet high and a mere 18 feet apart at its narrowest. As a slot canyon, Arrow Canyon has the potential for flash foods. Beware of traveling in the canyon if there is any rain in the area.
