The road trip takes you through the Mojave National Preserve and along historic Route 66 to the tiny town of Amboy and its nearby volcanic crater.

In that window, weather will usually be clear, with a slight chill in the air.

Hidden Forest can be the destination for a wonderful 10-mile round-trip day hike, or for a backpack excursion up to a rustic cabin in a ponderosa pine forest. Though the trailhead lies within 50 miles of Las Vegas, within the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, its 5,860-foot elevation provides a welcome escape from the searing summers of the valley floor. It gets even cooler as you go, for the hike has an elevation gain of about 2,000 feet. The gain is spread pretty evenly through the journey, but it’s moderately strenuous even so.
