Hiking in Clark County, Nevada

Hiking in Clark County, Nevada

Las Vegas is an amazing hub to hiking trails that are in the green green green mountains of Mt. Charleston, the gorgeous sandstone playground of Red Rock, hikes with lake views when hiking around Lake Mead, and many other amazing areas.

There are many trails and peaks in the Las Vegas area. Some have more than one name so it can be a bit confusing. Below are the trails and peaks that I know of and will be adding information to each article as I hike them.

Below are the known hiking trails in Clark County, Nevada listed in alphabetical order by the closest city and then trail name.

Some trails may be part of a larger hiking trail (in and out instead of completing a loop) and the information will be compiled into one article about the overall trail.

We are working on linking the trails to articles and “cleaning up” the closest city for a better organization to find the trails.

Some of the trails are “official” for the state park they are part of while others are named and enjoyed by locals.

Almost all the trails below are located in or near the Valley of Fire State Park.

Hiking the Lake Mead area can be HOT so the recommended months to hike these are October – April. Almost all of these hikes have no shade and have direct sun the entire hike.

If you are looking for some great trails, amazing scenery, and lots of wildlife then find yourself a campsite and stay awhile as there is a lot to see within the park and around the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
