Deer Creek Road

IMG_4252

One of my favorite outings from Las Vegas is a drive out to Deer Creek Road. It is so magical how you can quickly transform from the desert to mountains. And the drive only takes about 45 minutes from the Vegas Strip, depending on the traffic. The views here are gorgeous, and you just might run across some wild donkeys or horses, which are native to the area.

Lost Creek – Trail Map

IMG_2351

This is actually a trick – there is no trail map for this hike.  However, I found a pretty good set of directions at this link.

  • You Google the Lost Creek Country Club and map out the directions
  • Find a spot to park on Bend of the River Drive just before it crosses Barton Creek
  • Look for the start of the trail just under the bridge
  • Hike a short distance to the big flat rock in the middle of the Creek
  • Quickly look for a convenient spot to ford Barton Creek
  • Pick up the dirt trail on the other side
  • Follow this sandy, tree covered trail for about a mile until you run into the waterfalls on Lost Creek
