Las Vegas Hikes

Las Vegas isn’t known as a hiking city, but it should be. You have incredible desert hikes in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, big mountains like Mt Charleston, and fun local trails minutes away from the strip. There are many excellent trail options if you need an outdoor fix to counteract a booze-filled night out on the town.
