|When: ||15 Jul 07 |
|Where: ||Mt Charleston |
|What: ||Fletcher Canyon |
|Distance: ||4 mi |
|500+ ft |
|The Plan: ||This sunday The Lost Hikers are back up at Fletcher for those like me who missed out last saturday and for those who just want to hike it again. |
Most of this hike will be along a streambed which climbs into a canyon. Typically there is at least a small amount of water, however, this is one of the driest years up at Mt Charleston.
This trail is 4 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 500+ feet. Currently we are expecting temperatures in the mid to high 80s and clear skies.
We will meet at the trailhead around 0945 and depart at 1000.
This hike is located in Kyle Canyon up in the Spring Mountains, about 1 hour northwest of Las Vegas.
From town, drive out to Mt Charleston turning on Kyle Canyon Road. The trailhead is a little over 18 miles up Kyle canyon Road. There are signs on the right side of the road marking the trailhead with parking on the opposite side of the road.
If you have any questions contact either me.
Hope to see you out there.
The Normal Note: Remember to bring water, snacks, etc. Dress accordingly and wear comfortable hiking/running shoes/boots.
