Attention Levis Mound Users:

In the summer of 2016 Levis Mound lost its Park Shelter which provided year round shelter, restrooms and water access. The Shelter reconstruction process has started and we have hopes that the new shelter will be constructed by September of 2017. Until that time, porta potties are available on location and water access is limited to the spring and summer months. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter and would like to thank NATA and all those who have donated to the rebuild of the Levis Mound shelter.

About
Levis/Trow Mounds Recreation Area provides more than 34 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.


Favorite Trails

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 and toilets. Several picnic areas are located along the trail and at the Levis Mound Visitor Center. Rest benches are located on several overlooks and scattered throughout the trail system.
