#3 of 12 in Nature in Las Vegas
Mountain · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
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. Using our international travel planner, Las Vegas attractions like Mount Charleston can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Great hiking trails and a great escape from the desert. About an hour or so from McCarran Airport/The Strip.  more »
  • It gets cold up here especially if you come from Las Vegas. 8000 - 10,000 ft. elevation. Dress appropriately. Lots of hiking trail, or just go for a picnic, plenty of camp ground.  more »
