Stanley B Springs Trailhead on the edge of Kyle Canyon Road

The Stanley B Springs Trailhead is located up in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area (also known as Mt. Charleston), about 45 minutes northwest of Las Vegas. From town, drive out to the Spring Mountains Visitor Center (Table 1, Site 0726), then continue up Kyle Canyon Road for another mile, passing Rainbow Canyon Blvd and Ponderosa Pine Drive (paved streets to the left). At 0.2 miles past Ponderosa Pine Drive, stop at a narrow paved pullout on the right (Site 1285). Park here; this is the trailhead parking area. Watch carefully for vehicles on the highway.

At the parking area, a symbol sign translates to "No Parking;" but only during "December Thru March." It is okay to park here except during winter when parked vehicles would interfere with snow plows.

This trailhead provides access to the Stanley B Springs Trail.
