Overview

* Guidebook to 50 dog-suitable trails -- all located within three hours of Las Vegas
* How to keep your dog safe, healthy, and hydrated in Nevada's arid climate
* What to pack for your pooch: The Ten Canine Essentials and the doggy first aid kit

Whether your dog is new to proper trail etiquette, an experienced trail companion, or a senior dog who likes easy strolls, Kimberly Lewis and Paula Jacoby-Garrett have selected hikes that are sure to delight every type of dog owner and their four-legged friends. Best Hikes with Dogs Las Vegas and Beyond offers more than 20 years of combined hiking experience by the authors with their own dogs, and they look at the land through dog-centric eyes. Most of these trails are uncrowded, and include some shady respites -- if not water, too -- to help keep your dog cool in extreme Nevada conditions.

Ranging from short day hikes to extended backpacking trips, most trails in this guidebook are located in the Desert National Wildlife Range, Lake Mead and Spring Mountains National Recreation Areas, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, and Valley of Fire State Park. Also included is a Trail Finder chart that lists hikes by terrain, difficulty for dogs, leash regulations, and more.
