Tagging is Vandalism
So is spray painting directional markings on City of Henderson trails and surrounding landscaping. It's unsightly and it's against the law. We recommend using duct tape instead. Please help us keep Henderson trails beautiful. Report vandalism to the Police Department's non-emergency line at 311.
City of Henderson’s Highest Point
On February 19, 2013, the city of Henderson’s highest point was officially designated at 3,540 feet above sea level. To mark the high point, a survey monument was placed by City of Henderson staff and members of the Highpointers Club, a national organization that promotes the preservation and conservation of high points and provides a forum for education.
Henderson’s high point is located in the Black Mountain Regional Preserve, adjacent to Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area. The area is characterized by steep, rugged terrain and is not accessible by a city-maintained trail. For your safety, all visitors are strongly advised to stay on city-marked trails only.
