Overview

A nice trail drive-through allows the driver to experience the desert scenery in the National Desert Wildlife Refuge, just outside of Las Vegas. Multiple opportunities exist to explore other trails going into the canyons and mountains, making this an excellent area for a weekend getaway. Because there is unrestricted camping in the area, it is a great place for campers to get to higher elevations to decrease/escape the heat from the Vegas Valley.
