Mount Charleston
Toiyabe National Forest
Mount Charleston/Toiyabe National Forest is only 40-miles north of Las Vegas on route 95. Mount Charleston is extremely popular with the local residents in the summer months to escape the heat of Las Vegas. Camping equipment may be rented from May through September.

On the average, Mount Charleston is always average 30 degrees cooler than Las Vegas, this occurs because the Mount Charleston area is the highest elevation in Nevada. Summer months are great, but for winter enthusiasts skiing is available within a 45-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip at Lee Canyon.

Besides being a fun place to visit, Mount Charleston has a historic background also. Mount Charleston has several stands of the oldest living tree in the world, Bristlecone Pine tree.  Many of these venerable trees are more than 4,000 years old.  Visiting these famous trees requires a hardy walk. Take State Route 158 between Kyle Canyon and Lee Canyon and follow the North Loop Trail below Mummy Mountain. For additional information, call the Las Vegas Bureau of Land Management.
