Levis/Trow Mounds Recreation Area provides more than 41 miles of scenic trail. Levis Mound is the single largest trail system devoted to hiking opportunities, in Clark County. Hiking can be especially rewarding in the spring and fall when emerging plant life and autumn colors abound. A 1.5 mile segment is designed as a self guided nature study trail with 15 stations that review a variety of natural resource features.
Ascending the Levis/Trow Mounds include: North Face (overlooking a deep ravine and traverses to the northwest point of the mound), Cliffhanger, Toad Road and Upper Hermosa and Hermosa (which scale the ridge tops of Trow Mound, provide great views of the surrounding county forest). Another challenge is Goat Dance, a 3 mile hike located just to the northwest of Trow Mound.
Facilities include large parking areas, water, flush toilets and showers. Several picnic areas are located along the trail and at the Levis Mound Visitor Center. Rest benches are located on several scenic points of interest and scattered throughout the trail system.
