Lone Grapevine Trailhead

Lone Grapevine Trailhead is located in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, about 1-1/4 hours west of Las Vegas, but not in the Scenic Loop Road area. The trailhead is located off Highway 160, west of the intersection with Highway 159 (West Charleston Blvd). This trailhead is not in the fee area.

From town, drive out to Red Rocks (Table 1, Site 0519) and then to the Late Night Trailhead (Site 1072). Staying to the right past the parking area, follow the graded dirt Black Velvet Road out into the desert (Site 1081).

At 1.30 miles (Site 1082) or 1.34 miles out (Site 1083) the Black Velvet Road, turn left onto either of the two side roads. These roads converge in about 0.2 miles to become Lone Grapevine Road, which runs to the southwest.

Lone Grapevine Road runs for a total of 1.8 miles and ends at a T-intersection with Mustang Road (Site 1085). Turn right onto Mustang Road and drive northwest for 0.1 miles to the 2WD parking area (Parking #1; Site 1086), or in a 4WD vehicle, continue another 0.1 miles to the main Lone Grapevine trailhead (Parking #2; Site 1075). Park here; this is the main trailhead.

Additional parking is available 0.20 (Parking #3) and 0.25 miles (Parking #4; Site 1092) farther south along Mustang Road. This last parking area (Site 1092) provides shorter access to Wooden Fence Spring.

The Lone Grapevine Trailhead primarily is used by mountain bike riders; however, it also provides access to many miles of fairly easy hiking.

Trails: Lone Grapevine Spring, Wooden Fence Spring (see Lone Grapevine Spring), Mud Spring #2.
