Mount Charleston Scenic Byway
Mt. Charleston from along Kyle Canyon Road
SR 156 (Lee Canyon Road), SR 158 (Deer Creek Road) and part of SR 157 (Kyle Canyon Road) form a loop that connects US 95 with Mt. Charleston (11,918'). This is an area of rugged mountains and great scenery. There are several National Forest Service campgrounds and trail heads in the area, plus access to the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort. There's a grove of bristlecone pines up there that ranks among the world's oldest living beings. Mt. Charleston Scenic Byway is open year-round except for occasional weather closures in the winter.
