Description

A challenging hike rewards hikers with an amazing view for the payoff. Pack a lunch and enjoy it at the top while taking in 360-degree views of Red Rock Canyon and the Vegas cityscape. Be sure to leave your mark at the top by signing in at the box located at the very top of the mountain.

Half-Day Hike: A 2.2-mile hike along the Turtlehead Mountain Trail located in Red Rock Canyon National Recreation Area will bring you to the summit.

Snowy: Hiked it 7/9 and it had a few snow patches of very soft snow near the top. Nothing that would make you turn around.
