Hiking Las Vegas (orig.)

Thirty million visitors come to Las Vegas every year to partake in its famed indoor pleasures, yet its outdoor opportunities are no less attractive. Southern Nevada’s the beneficiary of three hundred sunny days a year, giving it year-round possibilities for hikers.

Hiking Las Vegas is the only book of its kind devoted to southern Nevada’s recreational wonderland. It details 20 hikes on the slopes of Mt. Charleston, the highest mountain in southern Nevada and only a 60-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip. These wooded, alpine walks starting at 8,000 feet in elevation, provide the perfect getaway for the blistering dog days of summer in Las Vegas. For the cooler autumn, winter, and spring seasons, Hiking Las Vegas describes 40 trails, paths and routes in BLM’s showcase Red Rock Canyon Recreation Area, less than half an hour from Glitter Gulch.

Each hike has a quick-reference feature detailing hike particulars, such as level of difficulty and danger, estimated travel time, and appropriateness for children. The hikes also include maps of the trails, along with photographs of key landmarks along the routes.
