This area is located outside of the town of Nelson, about halfway between Las Vegas and Searchlight, NV. Access to this location is rather easy and it’s a popular camping location. Unfortunately, there’s also some graffiti on the canyon walls. Keyhole Canyon has a lot to offer…ancient waterfall, petroglyphs, pictographs, shelters with rock art and cupules/grinding stones. While there’s some disagreement on which group left the rock art, many experts agree that the Zunis, Paiute, Mohave and Anaszi/Pueblo all traversed this area at some points in time.
