Hiking in the Spring Mountains
Over 60 miles of maintained trails wind through the area, most starting at over 6000ft in elevation and some culminating at the 11,916ft Charleston Peak. Hikers should be prepared for increased sun exposure and avoid dehydration due to the high elevation, and prepare to turn around or shelter in place for mountain lightning storms in summer. Sudden snow is possible from fall through spring, and in the winter all trails may become impassible with snow and ice. Hikers should always watch the weather and check for flood, lightning, and avalanche warnings.
