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.

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 Carpenter Canyon.
