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. The Wallace Canyon Road backcountry 4x4 trail on the west side of the Spring Mountains near Pahrump offers spectacular views from Charleston Peak to Telescope Peak in Death Valley National Park some 70 miles to the west. This route starts in the high desert and ends in the coniferous forest climate zone. You will likely see wild horses, burros, and deer. Winter may find icy and deep snow conditions in the upper areas of Wallace Canyon.
