Exploration Park

Gloria had been asking me to hike this park for a while, so I finally agreed and I’m glad that I did!  Exploration Park’s unique climbing trail takes advantage of the natural landscape of the area and provides sweeping views from the top of its small mountain. (Location: 9700 South Buffalo Drive, Las Vegas)

Exploration - 05Exploration - 03Exploration - 01Exploration - 06Exploration - 04Exploration - 02Exploration - 07I highly recommend this park if you are looking for a quick and easy climb to satisfy your hiking urge without driving all the way out to Red Rock Canyon. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes because the trail is steep and the gravel makes it slippery in places.  Have fun!

  1. The photos I show on this post are looking southeast, but the view from the top of the trail covers the entire city. On a clear day it would be spectacular.

  2. Wow Steve, great shots. And I agree that the view on a really clear day would be spectacular. These pics are pretty dang awesome as is. Thanks for taking us along. Turns out I didn’t get gravel in my slippers at all. 🙂

    • Thanks Liz. The view is great from this spot. Vegas has many great vantage points of the city…I just have to get off my lazy butt and hike to them.
