Hamblin Mtn. is a local favorite hike around Lake Mead. It has a fantastic view of Lake Mead at the summit. Being less than 60 minutes (driving time) from the city of Las Vegas, NV, it seems like a million miles away.
Below is my video review of the hike. It's a moderate hike that follows a wash and then a path to the summit. Most hikers can do this hike.
The 52 Peak Club offers this hike frequently to members during the winter months.
One word of warning: Do NOT do this hike when it's hot. There's no shade or water along the route.
I have created a new video review of another hike that I know you will like.
This time I am reviewing the Fortification Hill hike near Lake Mead.
As you will see in the video the vistas from the summit of Fortification Hill are some of the best in Southern Nevada.
This is a fairly easy hike and 99% trail/path.
Take a look at the two minute video and if you have any questions or comments, leave them below.
It's cold in Vegas, but you can hike in warmer weather. The Lake Mead area is normally 5 to 7 degrees warmer than Las Vegas and 25 degrees warmer than the peaks at Red Rock!
Lake Mead Hikes
Death Valley is less than two hours from Las Vegas and at least 15 degrees warmer. It offers some very unique hikes and believe it or not, it's very scenic. One word of advice: Don't do these hikes if it's windy.
China Date Ranch
China Date Ranch has some of the most unique hiking in the country! All the mountains are dirt. After the hike, make sure to get a Date Shake.
