Trail Information


The Spring Mountains National Recreation Area (SMNRA) is part of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. Better known to locals as Mount Charleston, it is located west of Las Vegas and encompasses more than 316,000 acres of remarkable beauty and surprising diversity Lovell Canyon Road is really a pathway to adventure in the Spring Mountains NRA. The paved road has no 4x4ing opportunities, but trails that connect to it offer some great 4x4 offroad challenges. There are seemingly endless dispersed camping opportunities located along the many short side roads that connect and parallel Lovell Canyon Road.

We drove up to Waypoint 6 to begin Rocky Gap, and the road was completely paved until that point. The drive was scenic.

We were in the Las Vegas area for a few weeks hitting as many trails as we could. We've found some interesting things along the trails but never an rolled and abandoned Jeep. We found a Renegade on it's side on one of the side trails. It looked to be stolen and ditched on a dead end trail. Just in case, we reported the location to authorities. This was our first time out in our recently acquired Jeep TJ. We just wanted an easy route to check for rattles and squeaks. The trail was perfect and we never needed 4x4. There was a little bit of snow and ice on the trail at the higher elevations but wasn't an issue. We connected this with Lovell Summit and out Trout Canyon for an easy scenic two hour drive.
