Spring Mountain Ranch is located within the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, beneath the colorful cliffs of the magnificent Wilson Range. The many springs in these mountains provided water for Paiute Indians and later brought mountain men and early settlers to the area. This 520 acre oasis was developed into a combination working ranch and luxurious retreat by a string of owners who have given the area a long and colorful history. Past owners of the ranch included Chester Lauck of the comedy team "Lum & Abner," German actress Vera Krupp, and millionaire Howard Hughes.

Great hike, dog friendly and very fun. A bit rough with all the loose rocks on trail but overall great

Ok trail, not the best not the worst, no need to do it more than once.

Nice trail for families

A pleasant hike of about 2 1/2 miles out and back.

The trails starts at the First Creek trail and then heads south. Once you leave the First Creek trail, there is barely a animal track to follow. Then after the first large gully you climb down and back up, there is some difficult rock scrabbling. This makes the route very difficult, not moderate.
