This area has had access trouble in the past. The way in used to cross private property. Apparently the landowner has been contacted and he has proposed a way to get to Arrow without crossing his land. Please follow the directions closely so as to avoid his land. Also if you get your car stuck, try everything possible to avoid going to his house for help.

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.
This is Mr. Brady's and the BLM's prefered access to Arrow Canyon. From Exit 90 on I-15 North, drive exactly 11 miles west on 168. You will pass three roads along the way (on the left) called Warm Springs. At 11 miles (.2 miles past the last Warm Springs road) you will turn left onto dirt road with a sign saying The Brady's. This left turn is right as 168 starts to curve right. Drive .5 miles past The Brady's house to a rectangular fenced area with a building in it. Just in front of the fenced area a rough dirt road skirts the right side of the fenced area. Follow this rough dirt road 1 mile to wilderness fence and park. Walk 20-30 minutes into Arrow canyon. The road is rough but we made it in with a subaru outback wagon (the beginning was the tricky spot). Good to have a 4x4 or high clearance.
Of the four main routes on the right side of the Swamp Cave this is the left most. This classic route starts out with a challenging boulder problem which leads you through a steep section of rock. Once through this section you enter a long stretch of sustained face climbing. AMAZING route!...[more]Browse More Classics in NV
If I don't have high enough clearance to get around the rough spot at the final turn off (and assuming I'm willing to walk the extra mile to the canyon), is there a place to park that won't offend anyone?
