Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area

The new road and contact station were formally inaugurated at the entrance to Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area, making this one of most interesting wild places to visit on the weekends in the Las Vegas Lands. That’s saying a lot when there are so many options to #findyourpark along the Grand Circle.

More about Sloan Canyon as we explore this protected area on foot. On a personal aside, I want to make my first trip here with my nephew, so I did not venture any further than the contact station helmed today by the visionary Jim Stanger.

The Nawghaw Poa Road (“mountain sheep trail” in Paiute!) and contact station will be open 8am – 430pm.

How to get there: Find the corner of Democracy and Via Firenze in the Inspirada neighborhood of Henderson, Nevada. Take the graded, unpaved road a few hundred yards and make a left onto the paved Nawghaw Poa Road. The visitors’ contact station is 1 mile ahead at the end of that road.
