In our July/August issue, we asked readers to tell us their favorite summer hike in Nevada.

One of the greatest things about our beloved state is the ability to get outdoors in a hurry. And we mean really outdoors, like far-away-from-civilization-in-20-minutes kind of outdoors. Whether it’s Las Vegas to Mt. Charleston, Reno to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, or Elko to the Ruby Mountains, you’ll find hiking trails in Nevada are as abundant as the stars in the skies. So where’s the best trail?

Leave your comments below, and we’ll publish the Top 5 responses in our September/October issue. To see the current month’s question, visit
