Description [Suggest Change]
Desert domes of quartz monzonite on a ridge that rises from west to east. Rock quality is similar to Joshua Tree and approaches are varied, with some house-sized boulders complicating the approaches to the higher domes. Bounded on the south by Grapevine Canyon, a popular hike, and on the north by the road to Christmas Tree Pass, the area sees very few visitors. First developed in 1978, it has seen little traffic since then. It is part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Located just 5 miles west of Laughlin off Highway 163, look for a signed dirt road (Christmas Tree Pass) and drive north a few miles to Grapevine Canyon or continue on the same road until it turns west to access the main area.
