The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest's spectacular 6.3 million acres makes it the largest national forest in the lower 48 states. Located in Nevada and a small portion of eastern California, the Forest offers year-round recreation of all types.

Compared to other recent hikes, this one was "ok," 3 1/2 stars. Views not so amazing. Hike down at the top was a sandy slope.

Great trail for beginners. Soft sand and dirt and some rocks on the first 1/3rd of the trail. Hard dirt and rocks the final 2/3rds of trail. NOTE: The gate highway 50 is closed so enter at Kingsbury Grade. You'll have to take a left about 2/3rds into the trail at the right hairpin turn and head towards White Hill. Those trails will take you to highway 50.

Great hike with kids (ours were ages 8 and up) and dog. Not much shade till the end of the hike. Getting over to the hike area was a challenge we had to cross a 8 inch thick cement wall once we were over the rest was easy.

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.

Great hike with awesome views of Charleston, Lee peak and Mummy mountain. The hike is actually 9.6 miles round trip.

This is one of my favorite hikes in the Sierra Tahoe area. The combination of geology and landscape never disappoints and today was no exception. Clear trail with no special gear needed but check weather for afternoon thunderstorms. The wildflowers are really starting to pop and should remain excellent for most of August. The Upper Truckee has plentiful snow fields to keep water running nicely. Check out recently posted photos and then get out there and enjoy!

This is clearly not the actual trail. Why is the trail marked from the trailhead to the highway?!

Still a lot of snow until you get to the waterfall. Lots of downed trees there. Pretty much clear after that.

Beautiful views from the top and certain spots on the way up.
