Autumn Colors in Reno

Kings Canyon Waterfall


It's hard to picture Autumn colors, flowers and waterfalls in one of the driest states in the country, but that is what makes Nevada so intriguing and unique. It may seem that Nevada has no trees at all in the desert, but actually the state has aspens, oaks, maples and cottonwoods that turn gorgeous colors in the Fall. The state parks, wildlife refuges and scenic byways are great places to enjoy the treasure trove of beautiful Fall foliage.

Depending on where you are in Nevada, there are different waterfalls that spread out across the state. You can visit some of them by doing day trips from Las Vegas or Reno, but others require a bit more time and effort to visit.

There are at least 10 amazing winter waterfalls to explore in Nevada like Hunter Creek Falls near Reno, Lost Creek Falls close to Las Vegas, Big Falls in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area across from Kyle Canyon, Mary Jane Falls located in the Mount Charleston Area, First Creek Falls in Red Rock Canyon, Tamarack Creek Falls located in the Reno and East Lake Tahoe area, Kings Canyon Falls in Carson City, Stonewall Falls which is a unique waterfall molded by a spring that streams out of Stonewall mountain, Thomas Canyon Falls located in the Ruby Mountains southeast of Elko, and Galena Creek Falls in Toiyabe National Forest in Incline Village.

You will notice many wildflowers along the trails and close to the falls. There are actually many wildflowers in Nevada that show their colors in the spring, from several varieties of verbena to yarrow to columbine, poppies, sage and more.
