What you'll do

This adventure is based on the "Night Hike to Strip Views" experience, which is one of the most popular AirBnB Experiences in Las Vegas. This version is geared for the more experienced hiker, or the person who has more of a thirst for adventure.

This experience is NOT appropriate for someone with a fear of heights.

We'll start at Terrazza Park, in the exclusive community of Lake Las Vegas, and hike along a paved trail that follows the Las Vegas Wash, a year-round flowing watercourse with reeds, weirs, waterfowl, and more. After a half mile, we'll turn off to follow a rocky trail up a steep hillside. Once the climb crests the ridgeline, our hike features continuous, panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and Lake Las Vegas.

Our destination is two ENORMOUS cairns (rock piles) that mark excellent photo spots high above the valley, and are photogenic in their own right.

As always, we will be joined on the hike by my dog, Scout. She is a German shepherd mix who is a registered Canine Good Citizen, and she LOVES to hike!

Please note that to get to the cairns, it is required to traverse three narrow spines of uneven rock, with ledges on both sides. It's not terribly dangerous, but it certainly feels adventuresome. This portion of the hike, to me, is the funnest part. It is a continuation beyond where "Night Hike to Strip Views" ends.
Other things to note
This hike is relatively short at just under three miles, but it includes a steep climb up the hillside. Total elevation gain is about 700 feet.

I have been hiking and guiding in Southern Nevada for more than 30 years. Over that time, I have found countless hidden gems, unknown to most hikers, where you can experience the natural side of Southern Nevada without the bustling crowds. I am also an experienced naturalist, with substantial knowledge of local flora, which I'll share along the way. Join me on a hike that I have hand-selected not only for its beauty, but also for its seclusion. I will take you on trails that even most locals don't know about, to destinations that have to be seen to be believed.

Where you'll be

This hike starts along the Las Vegas Wash, which returns all the city's water to the Colorado River. From there, it climbs a hillside to a series of cliffs overlooking the Las Vegas valley and Lake Las Vegas. This trail is little-known, and is one of the best bang-for-the-buck hikes I have found around Las Vegas. The views from the ridge are unsurpassed.

Alan provided us with an awesome night hike with sweeping views of the LV Strip. We learned a lot about native plants, geological formations, some astronomy, and just good convo. throughout our hike. My son loved it and I'd categorize it as the highlight of my trip to Vegas. Super cool memories I will never forget.

Alan was amazing. Very friendly and social. He came prepared with lots of water whenever we needed, along with heal lights. He even held our keys for us so we didn’t have to! His dog, Scout, was so cute and wonderful company as well. The hike itself was amazing. Definitely a once in a lifetime hike, I would’ve never found my way without his expertise even though I am an avid hiker myself. I also loved the fact that he knew specific things about each plant and was able to share some knowledge on them. The views at the tops were spectacular. Very clear views of the strip and Henderson Valley. Overall fantastic experience!

Alan & Scout were great! I am recovering from fractured ribs and hair line tears in both ACL's. Alan was extemely helpful when it came to some of the steep climbs. Without his compassion and attentive nature, I would not have been able to complete this hike to the top of the mountain where the view was absoluetly amazing and worth every step of the way! My daughter and I enjoyed the interaction and oveall experience and would do it again. If your looking for an experienced hiker, Alan & Scout are your connection for breath-taken views of Vegas!!!!
