Overview

Overview

Foxtail Group Picnic Area is located in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, just 47 miles from downtown Las Vegas. Visitors enjoy hiking, mountain biking and scenic driving in this forested desert oasis.

Natural Features:

The Spring Mountains National Recreation Area is a beautiful island in the desert, brimming with breathtaking scenery and diverse flora and fauna. The Bristlecone pine, the world's oldest organism, and the rare Mount Charleston blue butterfly are both found within the Spring Mountains.

More than 100 springs create the namesake for the mountain range, making it the perfect place to escape the heat of the city.

The picnic area is set among a forest of towering ponderosa pine which provides limited shade. The area affords views of the surrounding Spring Mountains.

Recreation:

Hiking and mountain biking are popular activities on the 1.3-mile Sawmill Trail and the 6.2-mile Bristlecone Trail. Both begin just a short drive from Foxtail.

Facilities:

This picnic area is a day-use site only. Three group sites are available, each with picnic and serving tables, grills and campfire circles. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. Firewood is available for purchase from the host. Site pads and footpaths within the picnic area are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

More than 60 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails crisscross the area; two trails allow mountain biking. Rock climbing, picnicking and scenic driving are popular activities.
