Welcome to Colorado River County

Your Colorful Local Experts

The Black Canyon of the Colorado (only 30 miles from the Las Vegas Strip) 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 during the Miocene Basin and Range uplift. Black Canyon gets its name from the black volcanic rocks that are found throughout the area.

Only a two hour drive from Las Vegas, the West Rim provides guests with an opportunity to experience the awe-inspiring canyon from many different perspectives. Grand Canyon West is more than just the West Rim. Here, you’ll find two distinct destinations, each offering unique opportunities for exploration. For scenic vistas, ziplining, helicopter tours, the Skywalk, and smooth floats down the Colorado River, head to the West Rim.

If whitewater rapids are more your speed, check out one- or two-day whitewater rafting trips, which depart from Peach Springs, AZ about a two hour drive from the Rim.

“The landscape everywhere, away from the river, is of rock–cliffs of rock, tables of rock, plateaus of rock, terraces of rock, crags of rock–ten thousand strangely carved forms. . . cathedral shaped buttes, towering hundreds or thousands of feet, cliffs that cannot be scaled, and canyon walls that shrink the river into insignificance, with vast hollow domes and tall pinnacles and shafts set on the verge overhead; and all highly colored”

John Wesley Powell, Exploration of the Colorado River of the West
