4.0 out of 5 stars A nice overview of natural Las Vegas and Southern Nevada Jan. 11 2009
By Michael McKee - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I grew up in Las Vegas but moved out decades ago. But as a kid I didn't pay much attention to hikes and birding. This guide seems to cover the area in more detail than others and offers a nice assortment of day trips focused around the city and surrounding area. Though some of the outings, especially Death Valley are a bit far to really explore in a day.

With the recent downturn in the economy, Vegas has been hit pretty hard and you can find great bargains there. So for our winter escape from the gray Northwest we are heading there to enjoy some sun, red rock canyons and birding. Catching a show or two will be a nice bonus. For the nature part we feel well armed with this guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best guide to southern Nevada June 2 2005
By Susan D. Potts - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is definitely the best guide available for hiking in the southern Nevada region. This book includes a wide variety of hikes with great descriptions of the areas and how to get to them. It has ideas for hikes of various lengths and difficulties and as well as information on conservation and safety. It includes great maps and photos and lists areas not found in most other guides. If you want to explore areas within a 3 hour drive of Las Vegas, this is the most comprehensive book I have found. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use June 24 2005
By William E. James - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have a long shelf full of southwest guidebooks. For the Las Vegas area, Beffort's book is the best choice for people unfamiliar with the desert. It has a good mix of easy and difficult hikes.

My sister and her husband recently visited Vegas while I was out of town. He was at a convention; she wanted to see something other than casinos. I turned her loose with a few suggestions and Beffort's book. She did three of the trips in the Spring Mountains and didn't get lost, uncharacteristic for her. The credit goes to good directions in the book.
