AAA Editor Notes

Cathedral Gorge State Park is 3 mi. n. on US 93. The long-term erosion of buff-colored bentonite clay deposited beneath an ancient lake has sculpted an intricate landscape of spires, slot canyons, natural bridges and caves. The park offers 10 miles of trails; mountain bikers may ride on six miles of trails. There's a dramatic overlook above the canyon at Miller Point, just north of the park entrance; from here a trail leads down into the gorge. A garden featuring native plants is on the grounds of the visitor center, which houses natural history displays. Recreational activities are permitted. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
$7 (per private vehicle); $5 (per private vehicle for Nevada residents).
Hours: Park open daily 24 hours. Visitor center open daily 9-4:30. Visitor center closed Jan. 1, Presidents Day, Thanksgiving, day after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Allow 2 hours minimum.
