“Spectacular view minutes away from Sin city”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

There's a camping ground, ski resort and picnic area in them hills!
We went there when there was snow so some of the kids got a chance to play. Bring your own water and food! Dont forget to gas up!

Do try to put this on your list if you're not in a hurry/budget while visiting las vegas.

“Nice Change of Pace~Quiet and Green!”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

The food on the mt. is nothing to write home about, but the green and fresh air are my quickie place to cool off and get out of town for a few hours. Been there dozens of times at all times of the year and for a quick cool off and to smell the pine trees, and aspen in Lee Canyon, it is a great place to go in less than one hour.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Hiking, camping and horseback riding, at 30 degrees cooler than Vegas and within easy driving distance. The Lodge at the end of the road has great food and even better views! We love this place in the summer
