About Arrow Canyon:

Arrow Canyon is a 200 ft. deep box canyon located 45 minutes northeast of Las Vegas, NV. The canyon is home to various species of desert wildlife, petroglyphs, and horrendous flash floods. The BLM maintains the land which means you as a public citizen own it too. Take care when visiting the canyon to ensure future visits for years to come. Also keep in mind that Arrow Canyon is a designated Wilderness Area. That, in particular, means no bolting and no motor vehicles.

Access: Currently there is a minor access issue due to the fact that the trail into Arrow crosses private property. The BLM is working with the landowner to resolve these issues. Climbers wanting to visit Arrow should contact Thomas Brady 5355 W. State Hwy 168, before using the dirt road.

When to climb: Mid October through April


Nearest town or city: Glendale
Directions: As mentioned above, Arrow is located Northeast of Las Vegas. From Vegas take I-15 north towards Salt Lake City. Take Exit 90 for Glendale / Moapa, and at the Stop sign continue straight on NV-168 for about 10 miles. After passing through the Warm Springs oasis, a road will branch SLIGHTLY off to the left (this is right before 168 curves hard to the right). Follow this side road for a few hundred feetto the 2nd dirt track on your right. Follow this dirt trail through the desert as it follows a wash. When you arrive at the BLM markers you must park here, this is the beginning of the Arrow Canyon Wilderness. Follow the trail for about another half mile to the canyon.
