Highlights

Highlight: Mormon Well Road
Mormon Well Road is mostly a rough dirt road with stretches strewn with small rocks and gravel. The scenery will change from desert to mountain to canyons. The plant life varies from desert brush to Yucca trees to Pine trees. During the drive you will pass through Peek a Boo Canyon known for a window formed in the cliff wall. Yucca forest is another change of scenery to be seen during the drive. This a great drive to see the different desert landscape in the surrounding area and a place to escape the Vegas heat in the summer.
