Fletcher Canyon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is truly one of the best hikes in this area, and one that can be done over and over. Besides being a nice casual hike through the woods, it has a spring and a narrow canyon area to explore. There are a host of interesting plants, insects, birds, and animals along this hike. The diversity of wildlife in the canyon makes this a fun and interesting walk for people and dogs of all ages. It is not uncommon to see something new every time you take this trek. The Mount Charleston area commonly gets more storms than the Las Vegas Valley. Keep weather in mind when hiking up into this narrow canyon environment. Strong water flows etched this canyon out of the rock, and flash floods are still a danger, so stay away if rain is in the forecast. Under foot and paw: Dirt and some gravel."
--Kimberly Lewis & Paula Jacoby-Garrett, Best Hikes with Dogs: Las Vegas & Beyond (The Mountaineers Books).
"This is an easy hike up a canyon in the Spring Mountains to a spring. Those who wish a longer, harder hike can continue up the canyon above the spring, using an informal trail."
--Bruce Grubbs, Best Easy Day Hikes: Las Vegas (Falcon Guides).
