5 Tips for Hiking in the Vegas Desert

Alexis Chateau PR

In 5 Must-See Attractions in Vegas, we mentioned the trials we faced hiking Red Rock Canyon. In spite of this, we tackled Lone Mountain the very next day.

What did we learn on these two hiking trips? Let’s just say that hiking in the Vegas desert is not for novices. The risks include dehydration, lethal falls, twisted ankles, cacti, and rattlesnakes.

But once you do it, you’ll realize the risks are all worth it, if you stay safe. So how do you stay safe in the Vegas desert? Here are five tips to ensure you make it out alive.

1. Check the Trail Maps

We’ve gone hiking in Georgia, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Iowa, South Carolina, New York, and now Nevada. On all trails we’ve visited, the trails are clearly marked, and usually color coded. In Vegas, may the force be with you.

Why? Because when you’re busy doing public relations work for Clients, it’s sometimes hard to remember to do the same for your brand.
