Those who know me know my white-hot, searing, intense hatred of Las Vegas.

I don’t know what the big deal is. I just happen to think it’s a cesspool of indulgence and waste – a sprawling and unholy combination of everything bad about urban life that shouldn’t even exist in the first place. ‘Just sayin’.

But people have told me there’s some good hiking in the area, and now there’s a great resource for looking up said non-gambling experiences on the internets — Hiking Las Vegas.

There’s a free, well-updated blog with hike synopses and pictures, but if you want any sort of detailed information you’re going to have to spring for a site membership – 50 bucks for the first year and less each after that.

On the sample pages, it looks like these write-ups are pretty damn detailed. And they’re formatted so you can just print ’em out and pack ’em up with you.

I don’t know how much I dig the whole charging-for-information thing. Here at MH, we give it away for free … but we’re also broke. Chalk it up to that 40% granola.
