Hope you can make it there. From the freeway, you'd never expect this.

Welcome James!! emoticon

Wendy, another nice place to hike is Valley of Fire (just north of Las Vegas). DH & I were there a couple of years back and we really enjoyed it. I'd love to go back. emoticon

Thanks James and Kayotic, My hubby wanted to go to Hoover Dam this year but we went to Red Rock instead. Next year we can go to the dam and do that RailRoad Tunnel Trail hike. Maybe we can get to Mt. Charleston too.

@Wendy, Kayotic is absolutely correct, Mt. Charleston is amazing but if you are only able to come for a short time, Red Rock is a real bang for the buck hiking, so many different and beautiful hikes. Just a couple of months ago, I was able to hike - it was 70 degrees but a short 2 mile hike into a box canyon I was rewarded with a beautiful waterfall into an ice formation. I just am in awe every time.

Down near Lake Mead is a very Epic Historic (easy) hike, called the RailRoad Tunnel Trail. It takes you through the 4 tunnels created when they made the Hoover Dam. It is very famous, can be very long, very exposed but worth putting in your check list.

I have to agree with you James. Nothing like early morning!

Hello James, While visiting Las Vegas a few weeks ago I really, really,really enjoyed hiking at Red Rock Canyon. What an amazing place! Are there other great hikes in the area? We visit every year for a convention and want to spend more time hiking and less time gambling next year.

Hello from Las Vegas. James here, really, really, really enjoy hiking. I love the outdoors in general, but nothing beats being on the trail early in the morning.
