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.
