Highlight: Devils Cove Road
Devils Cove is a relatively unknown and secluded off-road trail not terribly far from Las Vegas. It originates in the Gold Butte National Monument and travels down to what was once a cove of Lake Mead. The drive down to the cove is stimulating with fun driving that weaves in and out of washes and gives you a sampling of the five plant communities that surround the Lake. Once in the cove area, there is plenty of camping and areas to explore on foot.
