Just a short distance from the Las Vegas Strip in Lake Mead National Recreation Area is Black Canyon, a truly one of a kind unique place. This canyon, formed over millions of years by volcanic activity, lies just below the mighty Hoover Dam where the canyon walls rise nearly 2,500 feet from the river’s edge.
This is the canyon on the Colorado River where Hoover Dam was built. The canyon is located on the Colorado River at the state line between Nevada and Arizona. The western wall of the gorge is in the El Dorado Mountains, and the eastern wall is in the Black Mountains of Arizona. The canyon formed about 15 million years ago and gets its name from the black volcanic rocks that are found throughout the area.
