One of the beautiful things about living in southern Nevada is that even though we reach scorching temperatures during the summer, our fall, winter, and spring seasons are excellent for spending tons of time outdoors. A great way to get outside this winter is to explore some of the exciting hiking trails our area has to offer. Here are a few of our favorites you may not know about. Hidden Forest Cabin This isolated area known as the “Hidden Forest” in the northern Sheep Range is located within Deadman Canyon. The hike to the hidden cabin begins at the mouth of the canyon and heads east, leaving desert scenery behind for twisted rock spires and towering ponderosa pines. The trail climbs a challenging 2,000 feet over 5 miles but offers incredible scenery that you can hike through in a day or spend a night camping in. The cabin at the end is a treat for history enthusiasts, having been constructed in the late 1800s and used by hunters, outlaws, and bootleggers. Lake Mead Hot Springs Trail The perfect winter hike is one that ends in a narrow canyon with water running through it that can reach temperatures up to 111 degrees F. These Arizona hot springs can only be reached by hiking or from the Colorado River. Head to the old White Rock Canyon trailhead and follow the wash southwest as it narrows. The winding river will lead you to a view of Black Canyon before reaching the ladder beneath the springs. This is another great trail for a challenging day hike or an overnight experience unlike any other. Frenchman Mountain Trail Frenchman Mountain is a peak rather than a part of the mountain range, and as a peak, it’s a difficult but incredibly rewarding climb. It’s 4 1/2 miles out and back near North Las Vegas, and the steep climb will leave you breathless in more ways than one. You won’t get a better view of Las Vegas, Red Rock Canyon, and Mount Charleston all laid out before you. It’s also a great trail for bird-watching … if the view doesn’t steal all your attention away.

TAKE A BREAK
At the Round Table
In October, the VGK unveiled their new jersey for the 2020–2021 season, and it’s as flashy as you’d expect for a Las Vegas-based team. They partnered with Adidas for this third jersey, and it’s the first all-metallic gold jersey in the history of the NHL. They plan to add it to the team’s regular uniform rotation.
The Golden Knights chief marketing officer, Brian Killingsworth, has said, “The idea behind the jersey … is bold and bright just like the community that we are proud to call home. It is truly reflective of the sports and entertainment capital of the world and reinforces the Vegas Golden Knights’ push for innovation. The third jersey advances our brand and is the perfect way to represent the pride we all share in being #VegasBorn.” The VGK have introduced a new hashtag since the release: #VegasGoesGold. What do you think of the new jerseys? Are you ready to go gold too?
