Description

Twilight Loop is a great easy hike through the desert with gentle climbs & descents through and around the rolling hills and washes off Hwy. 157 on the way to Mt. Charleston.

The trail adds a little uneventful slow climbing and extra mileage to the loop as it parallels up above Kyle Canyon Road.

Follow the trail that drops off the NW side of the parking area that follows the base of the foothills in front of you. Stay left until you come to the sharp right, up the embankment. Once at the top turn sharp left and follow the trail west. The climb is steady until you peak at the intersection of Lucky Strike Rd. Cross the road, the singletrack becomes difficult to follow at times through this stretch.

As you round the north side of the trail you encounter a watering hole down to your right, this is Grapevine Spring, a good place to take a break and scout around. From there follow the trail heads east as you round the mountain then turns south. At the cairned 4-way intersection turn left heading straight back to the parking lot.

A view looking down at Grapevine Springs. A small corral with natural spring and livestock trough. Kind of odd to see in the middle of a desert.

One of several bike "sculptures" along the way to keep your eyes peeled for.
