Water Canyon

Description:

Rising almost 2,000 feet above the town of Winnemucca, secluded Water Canyon is one of the premier recreation areas in Northern Nevada and offers a rugged, picturesque setting along the canyon's upper reaches and a lush riparian area of cottonwood and aspen trees along the stream at the canyon bottom. Managed by the BLM-Winnemucca Field Office, this area offers sites for overnight camping, picnics, hiking, biking and even limited ATV use, all at no charge to visitors. The BLM has installed campfire rings, grills, trails, shelters and information kiosks all in an effort to improve one of Winnemucca's closest recreational opportunities.

Directions:

From Winnemucca Boulevard in Winnemucca, turn south onto Hanson Street, which turns into Water Canyon Road after 2 miles. Continue 2 miles on Water Canyon Road into the recreation area.
