Nevada Points of Interest

Basin Wall


The Basin Wall is a popular destination in the Las Vegas Wash watershed of Nevada. It is an impressive natural structure that spans about 500 feet in length and rises to a height of approximately 50 feet. The wall was formed over thousands of years through the erosion process caused by flash floods and other natural forces. The unique geological formation is made up of layers of sedimentary rock, sandstone, and shale. Visitors can access the Basin Wall by taking a short hike along a trail that winds through the surrounding desert landscape. Along the way, visitors can observe the diverse plant and animal life that thrives in this harsh environment.

There are several good reasons to visit the Basin Wall. For nature enthusiasts, the area provides an opportunity to explore the unique ecosystem of the Mojave Desert. The trail offers excellent views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, and the Basin Wall itself is a remarkable sight to behold. History buffs will also appreciate the area's cultural significance. The wash has been inhabited by humans for thousands of years, and the nearby Sloan Petroglyph Site contains some of the best-preserved examples of rock art in the region. Overall, the Basin Wall is a must-see for anyone interested in the natural beauty and cultural history of Nevada. Get driving directions.
