What you'll do
Hike to an incredible Vegas viewpoint that even most locals don't know about! Our destination has a view of the ENTIRE Vegas skyline, from Mandalay Bay to Downtown. **Great for groups! Families! Team building!** We'll meet at Terrazza Park in the exclusive community of Lake Las Vegas, perched above the Las Vegas Wash. There are restrooms and drinking fountains at the trailhead. Our hike begins alongside the wash, which features year-round flowing water, ponds, weirs, and lush vegetation that is unique in Vegas's desert landscape. After a half-mile, we'll turn off the main trail and follow a rocky trail up a steep hillside. This section will test your lungs and your legs, but don't worry, the distance is short and we'll take our time. Once our path crests the ridgeline, we'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the entire Las Vegas valley! Bring your camera! We will also be joined by my German shepherd mix, Scout. She LOVES to hike, and is a registered Canine Good Citizen. The hike is about a mile each way, and we'll gain approximately 500 feet of elevation overall. I will hike slowly (about 1.5 miles per hour) so you have time to enjoy the scenery as you hike. I will provide headlamps and/or flashlights for everyone, and will bring surplus water. **Private groups available. Custom start times by request, prior to booking.**
I have been hiking and guiding in Southern Nevada for more than 30 years. Over that time, I have found countless hidden gems, unknown to most hikers, where you can experience the natural side of Southern Nevada without the bustling crowds. I am also an experienced naturalist, with substantial knowledge of local flora, which I'll share along the way. Join me on a hike that I have hand-selected not only for its beauty, but also for its seclusion. I will take you on trails that even most locals don't know about, to destinations that have to be seen to be believed.

Where you'll be
The Las Vegas Wash is where all the water from the Las Vegas Valley returns to Lake Mead. This year-round water source provides a surprisingly lush oasis in the desert. The ridge between Lake Las Vegas and the Vegas Valley is dramatic and rugged. It provides a bird's eye view of the entire valley, with unmatched vistas of the Vegas skyline.
