    Russell Spring reviewed Lower Bristlecone Trail

    I love this trail I hate this trail. It’s a 5 Star during this winter months and a 3 Star during the summer. It’s a wide flat trail until it meets up with the upper half. It’s partly shaded and with pretty Mountain View’s not at all challenging during spring, summer, and fall conditions. Now in the winter months when southern Nevada gets good snowfall this trail is a 5 Star the character of this trail becomes amazing. It’s wide trail is easy to follow and you can walk a snow path in a safely without fear of getting lost. I highly recommend this trail in the winter and the whole loop any time of year.

    Russell Spring reviewed Charleston Peak North Trail

    11 months ago

    This is the true North Loop to the Charleston Peak. It starts from the North Loop trail head that is off of deer creek highway and continues past raintree onto deer creek trail to the peak of Mount Charleston.

    This is a 20 mile hike that leads you though the greenest part of mount charleston. There are epic views of the forest, plenty of cliff edges to walk along, and overlooks to selfie. So if you are afraid of heights, you might want to consider taking the south route starting at eco trail.

    This route will take you past mummy mount and to just over 10,000 feet to hang out with the 3000 year old raintree. Then you will drop down a 1000 feet to a trail junction of trail canyon trail and deer creek trail. You will then head up deer creek trail to the north ridge line of mount charleston. One mile onto this trail you will cross a cave springs water log. A good water filter here can top off your bottles. Proceeding on this trail will bring you to a up about 10,000 to 11,000 feet for a few miles until you reach the final ascend. There are several places to make a overnight camp before making for the top. The climb to the top is made up of 6 monster switch backs in 100% open sun.

    Weather on Mt Charleston is as random as it gets, so be ready. We had 3 seasons in 2 days. It was hot upper 80s then drop down at night to the upper 40s. We experienced rain storms and .22 caliber size hail. It was Nevada dry one day and Florida humid the next. Flash floods are very real on this mount you can see the results of them from time to time.

    If you view my profile you will see the actual full route logged for a better understanding. AllTrails only has part of this route recorded.
