Fodor's Expert Review Mt. Charleston

Mt. Charleston Scenic Drive Fodor's Choice

Sin City's refuge for hikers, naturalist, skiers, campers and just about anyone who wants to escape the desert valley for the forest, Mt. Charleston is the highest peak in Clark County and it offers year-round outdoor recreation. Trails include a difficult hike to Mt. Charleston peak, the range's high point. Easier trails lead to seasonal waterfalls or rare, dripping springs where dainty columbine and stunted aspens spill down ravines and hummingbirds zoom. Or they might lead onto high, dry ridges where ancient bristlecone trees have become twisted and burnished with age.
