(Video Producer’s Notes) Hiking in Las Vegas you’ll want to check out Mount Charleston. Mount Charleston is a year-round getaway for Las Vegas’s residents and visitors, with a number of hiking trails and a modest ski area. The mountain, which is snow-capped more than half the year, can be seen from parts of the Las Vegas Strip when looking toward the west. Mount Charleston has nearly 200 campsites and over 150 picnic areas, some of which are RV-accessible. The village of Mount Charleston, Nevada, lies at its base to the east. The state of Nevada issues licenses plates with the caption “Mt. Charleston” and an image of the peak in the background. Sales of the plate support the natural environment of the Mount Charleston area through grants administered by the Nevada Division of State Lands.
