This book in the successful Afoot & Afield series takes you beyond the bright lights of the fastest growing metropolitan area in the United States to some of the most rugged, beautiful, and remote country around. Afoot & Afield Las Vegas & Southern Nevada features more than 100 trips within a three-hour drive of the Las Vegas Strip, including popular destinations such as Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Valley of Fire State Park, Death Valley National Park, and Mt. Charleston. It will also help you discover places you might not have heard of, such as Anniversary Narrows, Arrow Canyon, Bowl of Fire, and the Wee Thump Joshua Tree Wilderness. The book showcases the diversity of the region's resources, from the geological wonders at Red Rocks to the rare life forms surviving in Mojave National Preserve to the ancient rock art found along the canyons and in the caves where prehistoric people lived. Trips range from for an easy stroll to challenging treks in the rugged desert backcountry and include distance, time, elevation change, difficulty rating, and trail-use notes. Over 100 detailed maps accompany the trail descriptions.
