If we know of long-term access issues or closures that may affect your future visit, we’ll post them here—along with links to the best resources for information and real-time updates regarding short-term situations, weather/environmental incidents, and other temporary travel impediments.

Short-Term Travel Alerts

Due to flash flooding damage caused by Hurricane Hilary in 2023:

  • Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, which includes Mt. Charleston, has now reopened most areas. In Lee Canyon (State Route 156), the Upper & Lower Bristlecone Trails/Trailheads, Lower Bristlecone Road, and Mack’s Canyon Road and dispersed camping area remain closed. In Kyle Canyon (State Route 157), the following trails/trailheads also remain closed: Cathedral Rock, Echo, Mary Jane, and Trail Canyons. On Deer Creek Road (State Route 158), Deer Creek Picnic Area remains closed as well. The latest updates will be provided through the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s website and Facebook page.

Long-Term Travel Alerts

  • In October 2021, lake access at Cave Lake State Park temporarily closed to the public for construction to restore Cave Creek Dam. The lake was completely drained. While the campground is open, access to the lake will remain closed due to unsafe shoreline conditions and other safety concerns until the project is complete. Check here for updates.

Come train or shine ⁣
⁣
All aboard the hot mess express, let’s hike this railroad trail near Las Vegas 🚂🛤️🥾⁣
⁣
[SAVE this post for later!]⁣
⁣
Trail name: Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail⁣
Location: Boulder City, Nevada⁣
Distance: 8.2 miles out-and-back (or as far as you want to go)⁣
Difficulty: Easy⁣
⁣
Includes: ⁣
- 5 railroad tunnels, roughly 300 ft by 25 ft in diameter ⁣
- Panoramic views of Lake Mead, Boulder Basin, and Hoover Dam, with the South Virgin Mountains rising up in the distance ⁣
⁣
Fun fact: After the Hoover Dam was completed in 1935, the railroad ceased operation. In 1962 the tracks were removed, and the trail opened in 1995. ⁣
⁣
The best place to begin your trek is the Lake Mead National Recreation Area Alan Bible Visitor Center trailhead. This is also a shared trailhead for the River Mountains Loop Trail.⁣
⁣
⁣
👉🏼 Tag a friend you’d do this railroad trail with!⁣

Visited the coolest bar I've ever seen in Nevada, the Pioneer Saloon over 100 years old and been in hundreds of movies and video games #PioneerSaloon #SaloonBar #Bar #Nevada #Western #Movies #Goodsprings #Fallout #NewVegas #Bikers #Route66 #HarleyDavidson #RoadTrip #USA #America #Country
Teresa Lake, Great Basin national park.
.
This lovely alpine lake can be accessed by a short hike from the Alpine lakes trailhead. The lake, also referred to as a tarn, is surrounded by a grove of pine trees. The iconic Wheeler peak towers over the lake in this scene. The greenish tinge in the sky is from airglow.
.
The photo is a blend of the foreground shot at blue hour and the sky shot later in the night, from a different location in the park. The foreground is a stack of five photos, each shot at 24mm, f/8.0, ISO800, 6 second exposure. The sky was shot at 24 mm, f/2.8, ISO1250, 180 second exposure, tracked. Ten photos stacked.
Look at how red those colors are!
It's raining stars in the desert. 🌌
