Named after Octavius Decatur Gass, owner of the Las Vegas Ranch and old Mormon Fort in the late 1860s, Gass Peak stands sentinel at the north end of the Las Vegas Valley and marks the boundary between bustling civilization and undeveloped wildlands. Gass, and more than a million acres to the north, are part of the Desert National Wildlife Range. It is the second-largest wildlife refuge in the United States (the largest is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska). An excellent way to enjoy this peak would be to climb it on the afternoon of a full moon, watch the sunset over Mt. Charleston and the Spring Mountains, then let the moonlight guide your way back down. Just to be safe, bring a headlamp. Or better yet, camp up top and watch the sunrise, too. Vehicle: HC/4WD.
