Southern Highlands Radio Tower

nv

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 7.5 miles


This trail goes through the desert. You'll pass cactus flowers in March and April, abandoned cars & hot tubs and you might see a coyote or two. You can follow any road up to the radio tower - either at the base of the hills or near the railway. Bring water as it's very dry and there's no shade.

Head in towards the desert from suburbia, eventually hiking to 3300ft for views of the Las Vegas strip and surrounding area. This is a great trail running area. No need to follow any set path, just head towards the radio tower.
