From the La Madre Mountain Summit one can see the entire Las Vegas Valley to the East, Red Rock Canyon to the South, Mt. Charleston Wilderness, Rainbow Mountains and Potosi Mountain to the West and Gass Peak and the Sheep Range to the North. There is too much more visible from La Madre Mountain summit to list here.
