Live in Southern Nevada, wanting to get into light trail walking/hiking and working my way up as part of fitness and rehabilitation. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas on where to go, as well as what I might need to bring, etc.
ya sup another native.
red rock, go to blue diamond they got a good bit of red rock around them go further up hit trails and get lost.
charlie got some good shit.
goldstrike canyon is tite during this time, terrible for the summer, but you should know that.
death valley is terrible fuck that place and everything about it.
can't think of anything unless its local hendo bullshit.
If you're willing to drive a bit, besides going to Cali, there's always places like Zion in Utah where you can start with easy hikes made for tourists and work your way up to 18 hour overnight hikes that are kind of challenging. I think if you were just starting out you could enjoy yourself.
Mt. Charleston is the absolute shit, I remember I loved that place when I used to live in Nevada as a little kid. It was cool because the elevation actually kept it pretty comfortable up there.
Red Rocks is a world class destination if you're a climber, and it's right in your backyard. Super Jelly.
Also, there's the Grand Canyon, all the cool stuff in Southern Utah, and Joshua Tree. Eastern Sierras aren't too far away either.
not a whole lot of anything. if you want to stay up there for a day day packs and yadda. its honestly just something you go up there smoke some bowls and go back on your merry way.
charlie you got mary jane falls which is another trail that you just wonder off on and nothing is really needed to survive.
i really do recommend goldstrike it has the hot baths that are a+ right now.
out towards AZ over the bridge there is another trail you can take. its almost as soon as you get over the bridge.
