Explore a slot canyon outside Las Vegas on this 3.6-mile out-and-back in the Spring Mountains.

Less than a hour from The Strip, this 3.6-miler (round-trip) starts with a mellow stroll north through open stands of ponderosa and mountain mahogany. Near mile 1.5, pass Fletcher Spring before entering a slot canyon flanked by ragged limestone walls. Turn around .3 mile later where the route seems to dead-end at Obstacle Rock. Follow the same route back to Kyle Canyon Road.
