Rocky Gorge Loop Trail Map - in progress
Hiking Around Las Vegas, Mount Charleston Area, Lee Canyon

The Rocky Gorge Loop Trail Map is a 10.8-mile loop that starts from the Sawmill Trailhead along Lee Canyon Road and runs out to the northeast. I've not hiked this trail between Waypoints 13 and 48, but the map is accurate (USFS maps confirmed using aerial photos) except in the area approaching Waypoint 48 where the trail is not clear on aerial photos. Waypoints 50 through 59 were chosen for strategic directions at places where the trail is visible on aerial photos.

Note: Roads are black (solid = paved; dashed = unpaved). Trails and routes are red (solid = main; dashed = adjacent or alternate). Map based on USGS 7.5 minute topo map, which may have red grid lines and various numbers. North is at the top. Grid is UTM NAD27 CONUS. Wilderness Areas (boundaries solid green, fill light green) based on BLM data.
