Named after Charleston, North Carolina, by the Dixie general of a mapping team in 1869, Southern Nevada’s highest peak is more reminiscent of the Rocky Mountains than the deep South. And what a great mountain! With its stately forests and soaring limestone cliffs, it’s hard to believe Las Vegas is so close. Take a minute to give your respect to a bristlecone pine, many of which are more than 3000 years old. Look for 500-million-year-old sea fossils along the way, and the wreckage of a crashed plane about a half mile south of the peak. In 1989, the Nevada Wilderness Protection Act designated about 43,000 acres of the mountain as the Mt. Charleston Wilderness Area. In 2002, Congress expanded the wilderness to its current 56,600 acres. Vehicle: Passenger car.
