Cathedral Gorge - a miniture Bryce Canyon in Nevada
Cathedral Gorge is located in a long, narrow valley where erosion has carved dramatic and unique patterns in the soft bentonite clay. Trails abound for exploring the cave-like formations and cathedral-like spires. Miller Point, a scenic overlook just north of the park entrance on U.S. 93, offers excellent views of the scenic canyon. Shaded picnic areas and a tree-shaded campground area are open all year. Hiking, picnicking, camping, nature study, photography and ranger programs are the most common activities at the park.
Cathedral Gorge is a photographer’s dream. A number of walking trails provide great views of the Park. Children and adults alike love exploring the slot canyons.
A Regional Visitor Center is located at the entrance to Cathedral Gorge, offering interpretive displays and information about all of eastern Nevada and seven state parks. The park and visitor center is located 2.5 hours north of Las Vegas on Hwy 93, 1.5 hours west of Cedar City, Utah (UT 56W to NV 319W to US 93N) and 1.5 hours northeast of St. George, Utah (UT18N to UT 56W to NV 319W to US 93N).
