Do You Want to Climb MT. Charleston? What You Should Know Before You Go

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – Forest authorities advise that families planning a trip to Mt. Charleston should prepare ahead of time because they may encounter problems ranging from congestion to snow limitations.

When there is new snow on the roadways, law enforcement may need snow chains or snow tires on an all-terrain vehicle, or you may be turned around.

Overcrowding has also complicated the holiday season. The RTC tweeted on Monday that routes were closed owing to capacity difficulties. Due to high demand, forest officials stated there were limits on entering Kyle Canyon on Tuesday morning.

“There’s very limited parking. Once we do hit capacity at the higher elevations, that means we’re out of parking spots. Law enforcement will put up traffic stops and not let anyone else continue driving up the hill,” said Jennifer Humphreys, the lead visitor services assistant.

To make sure you can enter the park without any challenges:
  • Obtain a prior reservation to the Mt. Charleston Lodge, The Retreat or Kyle Canyon
  • Without a reservation, make sure to arrive before 9 a.m. and well before then
  • Park in a legal parking spot that is off the roadway
  • Check the weather before you start your drive
