Hiking Around Las Vegas, Desert National Wildlife Refuge
Long Canyon Trailhead

Long Canyon Trailhead is located on the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, about 1 hour north of town.

From town, drive out to Corn Creek Field Station and continue east 50 yards to a T-intersection where Alamo Road goes left and Mormon Well Road goes right. Turn right onto Mormon Well Road and drive south then east and finally north for 9.0 miles as the road winds through Yucca Gap and around to the east side of the Sheep Range. Stop at a large parking area and campsite on the left where the road bends hard to the right. Park here; this is the trailhead.

For details of the road and GPS data, see the Mormon Well Road.
