Bulk up on breakfast at Hash House to fuel your hike to the summit of Mt. Charleston, less than an hour from the Strip. For seasoned hikers, the North Loop trail (10.8 miles) and the South Loop (8.2 miles) offer rewarding views of Kyle Canyon. If you prefer a nice walk to a strenuous hike, the stunning six-mile Bristlecone Trail to see high-elevation conifers like Ponderosa Pines and White Firs. Celebrate your climb with a beer at the Mt. Charleston Lodge but hold out your hunger for a boozy milkshake and juicy, hormone-free burger at LBS on your way back into town.
