Angel Peak Trail is a steep off road trails that ascends to the top Angel Peak in the Spring Mountains near Mt. Charleston. It is sometimes referred to as the Lucky Strike Mine road. Angel Peak is typically referred to as a stock-friendly trail, however due to some very steep sections and loose rock on both sides of the mountain, stock vehicles should only run the trail in optimal conditions. There are also some minor ruts and steps so care should be taken when picking lines in a stock rig. The trail is often run from north-east to south-west, but it can be run in either direction. From the north-east, the road starts at US 95 a few miles past the Kyle Canyon turn off. It travels through the Luck Strike Mine canyon and up to the top of the mountain. At the top you will see some antennas and observation equipment, as well as the Spring Mountain Youth Camp (juvenile correction facility). At the top, you should take the trail back down the south side of the mount (see map) and do not enter in to the youth camp area. The trail follows a ridge back down to where you will meet the Kyle Canyon road (NV 157). This trail is a favorite for Las Vegans to escape the heat in the summer. It offers beautiful views of the Las Vegas valley as well as the surrounding Spring Mountains, including Mt. Charleston. Snow runs are often attempted in the winter, however few actually make it to the top due to the steepness of the trail on both sides. Angel Peak trail is frequently run with the Grapevine Spring trail.
