Mud Springs Loop | Lee Canyon | Mt Charleston Wilderness | Spring Mountains, Nevada

Mud Springs Loop is beautiful, though heavily forested. For this reason, the hiker often has no larger point of reference and can get lost in a maze of rabbit trails, and the directional markers are missing when you most need them.
