Northeast of Las Vegas you’ll find a mountainous range with wonderful trails, memorizing views, food and quaint places to rest your head overnight.

On My Way To The Top

The road up Mount Charleston is one that takes you through a valley of winding paths with animals often scattered about. The animal caution signs you’ll see are to be acknowledged, as it’s common to find deer and donkeys along the road. That’s right, not only deer, donkeys too!

Though you’ll also find the Donkey Caution Sign on the way up, this picture was actually taken on the way back down Mt. Charleston.

Safety In The Mountains

The Las Vegas Police Department has a station at the base of the path up Mount Charleston. Thankfully most people have phone service throughout the mountainous range. So if you’re ever in danger you’ll likely be able to call 911 and get a quick response. There’s also a fire station further up the mountain. Safety first!

The Resort on Mount Charleston, Formally

Recently this wooden resort in the mountains was sold for $4.8 million and is now known as The Retreat On Charleston Peak. If you’re looking to stay at this unique place, you can expect to pay anywhere from $80-$200 a night. Depending on the room type and date of renting of course.

The Resort On Mount Charleston features a hotel, restaurant and spa. The kind staff serves breakfast and brunch so there’s no need to wake up early on your vacation!

It’s common to find people riding motorcycles throughout the mountain. The comfortable temperatures and sunny days make for a perfect day out.

Hiking Areas

You’ll see many great spots to pull off to the side of the road to do some sight seeing. One of my favorite spots to stop for a hike is the Fletcher Canyon Trail. It’s a popular spot as you can see from the pictures below, all of the parking spots were full when I went but I was able to find some parking close by. At 10 a.m. on a Saturday in September with weather in the high 70’s, as it was on this day, you can expect a lot of people to be out experiencing everything Mt. Charleston has to offer.

Trails On Trails

Fletcher Canyon Trail isn’t the only one out there. Eagle’s Nest Loop is another popular trail that’s easy to access, you’ll find a few more if you continue down the path.

Eagle’s Nest Loop, a 1.8 mile long trail connected to Fletcher Canyon Trail. It takes adventurers off the main path and onto new sights.

The Residential Area

Brilliantly built houses are scattered along the mountain side in various parts of Mount Charleston. Impressive homes with most prices ranging from 250k and up. It’s not surprising to find homes worth 2 million or more in this lovely town.

Picture of the 7000 feet elevation sign along the road. Travel a couple miles further and you’ll pass the fire station and residential area. The restaurant and visiting center follows shortly after.

Food And Private Cabins

Looking for a bite to eat or a quaint cabin to get some rest? Stop by the Mt. Charleston Lodge for some delicious food or an overnight stay. Cabins generally cost $200-$400 per night. They’re known for their mountain peak views and rustic atmosphere. You’ll find 1/2 lb. burgers, ribs, pizza, and fish at the restaurant. Be sure to try their special fried cheesecake for dessert!

Mt. Charleston Lodge features classy cabins for rent, along with a popular restaurant with quality food.
