In every direction from Las Vegas lies adventure. Sprawling across a rugged Western landscape, much of it still publicly-owned, are mile-high mountains and mile-deep canyons, forests of Joshua trees and cacti, dunes, volcano craters, and desert oases. Hiking routes famous throughout the world lie within a few hours of Las Vegas, in parts of four states.
Spectacularly beautiful, this land can be dangerous without a knowledgeable guide. But, Deborah Wall, hiking columnist for the Las Vegas area View Community Newspapers, has been there and done it. In this colorfully illustrated book, she tells you where to go, and when, and what to expect when you get there, as you enjoy the best trails this region offers.
