This area near Dayton, NV offers some scenery that’s a cut above the typical Nevada sand and sage.
The trails get a little bit rocky, but if you like stream and creek crossings, you’ll want to hit this place during spring thaw when the creek washes out over the parts of the trail. Due to the elevation and the shade from the trees you may find some trails blocked by snow even in the late spring. You can can stage or camp at the trailhead or there are some primitive camping spots along the trail on your way up the canyon, but a 4×4 is recommended to access anything past the base of the canyon.
