Hiking Mt. Charleston
A forested, mountain top retreat just 45 minutes away from the strip! It’s hard to believe there could be a slice of Colorado highlands in the Mojave desert but here it is. With trail elevation ranging from 6,000-11,000 ft, Mt. Charleston stays cool when the valley heats up. If you’re looking for a refreshing reset; a change of scenery…you won’t get a starker contrast than this.
