Overview – Fletcher Canyon Trails | Mt Charleston Wilderness | Spring Mountains, Nevada

Fletcher Canyon Trails included here all originate or can be accessed from The Fletcher Canyon Trailhead on Kyle Canyon Road below Charleston Village in The Mt. Charleston Wilderness, Spring Mountains, Nevada.

An alternate trailhead area for a couple of these trails is The Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway: 

  • The Escarpment Trail can be accessed more directly from The Visitor Gateway.
  • Accessing The Acastus Trail from the Visitor Gateway creates a “downhill all the way” return trip, though it’s trailhead from the Visitor Gateway is not as easy to locate as at The Fletcher Canyon Trailhead.
