The trail was great! Gets a little rough when you get close to the top. Almost has to scramble up on all 4s. But the view is fantastic!

Great hike. Beautiful cactus blooming. Gets harder closer to the top. Amazing views of LV and Henderson.

It's a great hike! The first part is pretty simple just a slow and steady climb. The last 1/2 mile is probably intermediate, not beginner. Lots of slippery gravel and boulders right before you get to the peak.

Fantastic hike!! The trail progressively gets harder as you get closer to the top of Black Mountain.

This hike was amazing! It's a strenuous hike that requires a good hiking shoes esp the one that has a good grip. The last mile is difficult as you would have to scramble your way up to the summit, it is very steep. Be careful with loose/sharp rocks when scrambling, it would also help if you wear a glove. Other than that, just watch out for snakes, enjoy the view on the top, log in on the logbook/notebook inside the ammo box. But it is almost filled so bring a new one if you could and a pen. The American flag is still there, take a lot of pictures and enjoy the breathtaking views of the whole Las Vegas valley.

This hike was good. Best to go early morning , trail can get a bit crowded later in the afternoon, especially on the weekends. The first 2/3 of the trail is great, last 1/3 of it pretty steep. Wear really good hiking shoes. Probably will do this hike a couple times a month.

The start af the trail was a little hard to find. Many places to park on side streets. Regardless, look for wash basin by high voltage lines. Start of trail is at 2 o'clock when looking at wash basin.
First 2/3 of hike wash a reasonable climb. Last 1/3 was hard and was daunting when looking up. But we did it.
If you know how to erect a flag pole, bring a flag with you. The one that used to be here is gone with only the pipes remaining on the ground. Also a log book that can fit inside an ammo can too, the ones up there are full.
Tips: Ware good hiking books. Bring plenty of water. Temps for our January hike was 45 to start and maybe 38 at top.

My girlfriend and I hiked this trail yesterday. Impressed with the trail itself. great views. Last half mile is very steel but it just makes it that much more worth while once you reach the summit. nice sign in notebook at the top in a rock pit. amazing view. we had a great time but it definitely is a moderate/difficult trail

Nice hike close to Vegas. My son and I hiked it in 4 1/2 hours, which included a 20 minute break at the top which afforded spectacular 360 degree views of Vegas and the surrounding desert and mountains.
