• Cathedral Gorge State Park - Panaca, Nevada

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Established as one of Nevada's first state parks in 1935, Cathedral Gorge State Park is home to a remarkable collection of spires, cliffs and slot canyons. Created over millions of years, first by volcanic activity, then by the formation of a huge lake and finally by erosion of the sediment at the bottom of the dried-up lake, the most spectacular features are the narrow winding canyons and crevices that extend as far as 100 yards into the rock formations.
