SMYC stands for “Spring Mountain Youth Camp,” which is a long-term correctional facility for young men. In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, these teens have done nice trail work on Mt. Charleston for more than 30 years. They did a nice job on this trail too. This is a pleasant trail with relatively little elevation change that generally runs at gentle grades. There are two short, steep sections, but both are associated with nice viewpoints.
