Description

From the trailhead at Miller Point, pass the gazebo and descend the trail down through the amazing formations that make this state park one of the most beautiful places in Nevada.

Starting from above gives you the opportunity to see these spectacular formations in a very neat way, and as you descend the trail you get the opportunity to see them up close as well. The trail drops down some stairs, crosses a couple of bridges, and then eventually drops into a dry wash that carries the sediment that is being eroded from the formations out into the valley below.

As you follow the wash, you emerge from a more narrow canyon into the wide valley and before long the trail reaches the picnic area and parking area where there is access to a lot of other trails within the park.
