Mount Charleston, Las Vegas

4.6
#3 of 11 in Nature in Las Vegas
Escape to Mount Charleston for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and camping just outside of Sin City. At 3,632 m (11, 918 ft) tall, summiting the mountain provides spectacular views of downtown Las Vegas and the surrounding area all the way to California and Utah. Hike the trails through bristlecone pine forests, and enjoy the sight of limestone cliffs and wildflowers. Trail options vary in difficulty. Two trails are available for mountain biking, and most are suitable for exploring on horseback. In the winter, trails are used for guided snowshoe hikes. The site offers interpretive programs most of the year, plus popular night hikes and art workshops.

  • You GOTTA drive up and eat. On the way up, watch for the wild Donkeys, if you have lots of time, take some of the side roads. You will NOT be disappointed  more »
  • The drive up the mountain was very scenic and the air was fresh and crisp. This being the highest point near Vegas, snow was on the shoulder of the road and grass areas.  more »
  • I stayed in this hotel for 2 days and the stay was very good. Like this in the middle of the jungle the internet was bad bad sign those seeking peace and quiet away from the noise of Vegas, I recommend. It is 40 minutes from Vegas.
