We will hike on a little-known trail in the heart of Mt. Charleston, away from the stifling heat and oppressive crowds in Las Vegas. Our chosen trail will be a loop hike, so you'll have fresh scenery the whole way. The trail starts out at the bottom of a lush (by Mojave Desert standards) green canyon with tight limestone walls. After a short while, the trail opens up a bit, and the canyon is filled with impressive ponderosa pines, delicious wax currants (when in season), and so much more. As we ascend the canyon, we'll see both of Nevada's official state trees (single leaf pinon and bristlecone pine), our state flower (sagebrush), and probably our state bird (mountain bluebird). After about a mile, we'll climb out of the canyon and onto a promontory with phenomenal views west to Mummy Mountain and east to the vast open desert. This hike totals around three miles, with under 1000 feet of elevation gain. I will hike at a pace under 2 MPH so you can enjoy the scenery and take photos. It's trail the whole way.
Il tuo host
I have been hiking and guiding in Southern Nevada for more than 30 years. Over that time, I have found countless hidden gems, unknown to most hikers, where you can experience the natural side of Southern Nevada without the bustling crowds. I am also an experienced naturalist, with substantial knowledge of local flora, which I'll share along the way. Join me on a hike that I have hand-selected not only for its beauty, but also for its seclusion. I will take you on trails that even most locals don't know about, to destinations that have to be seen to be believed.

Dove ti troverai
This trail means a lot to me because it was the first trail to show me what was available off the beaten path on Mt. Charleston. Even on days when the mountain is swamped with tourists, it's not uncommon for me to hike this entire loop and not see a single other hiker. Our chosen hike has diverse and plentiful vegetation, unbeatable views, and varied terrain. Truly, this is one of my favorite hikes on Mt. Charleston.
