Book Review: Base Camp Las Vegas by Deborah Wall

BASE CAMP LAS VEGAS presents a huge assortment of hikes in the Las Vegas area. For each hike, the author includes these points:

  • Best Season
  • Length
  • Difficulty
  • Elevation Gain
  • Trailhead Elevation
  • Warnings
  • Jurisdiction
  • Directions
  • Alternate Directions

The first part of the book covers preparation and safety. Deborah presents lots of good ideas to consider before making a long hike.

There are also great full color photos that feature the highlights of a hike.

For each hike, dangerous conditions are noted, such as shown here:

One of my favorite section is the appendix at the rear of the book. Here, there is an index to hikes.

All in all, I was delighted with this book.  I only wish I lived closer!

You may purchase this book on Amazon.
