Flag is back 12/4/16. Best view in Las Vegas.
Great 360 degree view of the Las Vegas valley and neighboring area. From the peak state line to California and Boulder City are easily visible.
It was super amazing hike hard at the top but glad I didn't turn back. sad to not see the flag on the pole.
Great hike - amazing views !
Great hike! Long. The peak has a beautiful view of the whole city. Last leg up to the top was hard going up and down. Be careful!
Wicked fun. Got a pretty sweet tan too. No shade. But the 360 view of the city is awesome. Can't wait to do it again.
My favorite vantage point of the Las Vegas valley. Views of all the mountain ranges, Lake Mead/Colorado River area, California, Arizona. Bring plenty of water and plan on 4-5 hours, unless trail running. Wildlife and flowers are at their peak in spring (April-May). Easy hike except for the last climb, which can take 30-45 mins depending on stops. Great hike for families as long as kids can go the distance (our youngest did this hike at age 3 but needed help at the end). Get out early, pack a lunch and enjoy the highest peak on the south side of the valley.
The hike up was long and exhausting.. But the view the entire way up was beautiful!! Definitely worth it!!
I followed the loop suggested by BLM, the ones who put the trail marker, and I did reach the top however, the trail afterwards was not well-defined and it was easy to go off-trail. I did the hike this morning with 95+degree weather and I would highly recommend to bring a lot of water and a buddy when doing this because right around 9:30 the Temperature skyrocketed and looking for those trail markers was a b****. I would recommend the trails done by people usually instead of the loops (bring a buddy for it). Overall, amazing wildlife and faunas. Challenging towards the end but the view is so worth it!
Very easy until the end. It does make you work to get to the top. The view looking east from the summit is amazing.
Very difficult towards the top and it takes a lot out of you! Beautiful view start early it gets hot on the way back!
Great hike. Very challenging towards the end. Would rate this as a moderate hike instead of easy.
Can we set up a campfire??
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.
