Griffith Peak | Mt Charleston Wilderness | Spring Mountains, Nevada

Griffith Peak | Mt Charleston Wilderness | Spring Mountains, Nevada

At 11,056ft, Griffith Peak is the third highest peak in the Spring Mountain range and Southern Nevada. Though often overlooked by hikers whose destination is Mt. Charleston, the highest peak at 11,918ft, Griffith Peak is a great summit destination in itself. It has a unique view of the Eastern portion of Las Vegas, the Strip and the mountains bordering Red Rock Canyon and Calico Basin which are not visible from Mt. Charleston or Mummy Mt. The summit itself is more interesting than the barren Mt. Charleston summit. And finally, Griffith Peak makes a great out and back conditioning run for trail runners as the trail is a fairly good running surface, the incline is steady and steep and the round trip is just under 10 miles so one can travel fairly light and fast. Route Details: 9.3 mi RT / Approx. 7,713 > 11,060ft; **Excellent Trail** Click image or title above for more…
