"I was outside the Bunker when everything happened, and now there’s no going back. I can only hope that some of the ones in Hidden Valley made it. Probably doesn’t matter now. It’s been decades. Odds are everyone there is dead anyway. Even if they aren’t it’s not like they can leave. Lucky for them that scribe, what was her name? It doesn’t matter. They’re lucky she retrieved that farming data from the Vault. If they managed to get things up and running, that place should be pretty self sustaining. That is assuming they’re still getting fresh water into the bunker. I’m still building a life out here. I found this shack that I can sleep in, I just I wish I still had my old Power Armor. If someone besides me is reading this then that means I’m probably dead, in which case the shack is yours assuming somebody else hasn’t already moved in there. The shack is just east of Freeside, near Nellis Airfield. Good luck out there. It’s hell." -Journal

As of 2281, Hidden Valley was the main base of operations for the Mojave chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel. At some point after the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, a paladin named Ramsey grew concerned over Brotherhood scout reports detailing the NCR's development of the SM-5 cloud. After his warnings of imminent danger were brushed off by Elder McNamara, Ramsey and a skeleton crew of Brotherhood personnel fled the bunker, establishing a new base at the former NCR camp within Searchlight. Within a few days of the groups departure, the NCR attacked Hidden Valley with a nuclear device, wiping out the majority of the Mojave Brotherhood.
Due to the NCR's actions, Hidden Valley is home to a substantial population of Feral Ghouls, both inside and outside of the bunkers. Additionally, the outside area as well as a few of the bunkers are heavily irradiated. For these reasons, it is recommended that all effort be expended towards clearing the area at a distance.
