This 8 mile trail connects McCullough Hills TH on the east side of the McCullough Hills with Anthem Hills Park TH on the west side. It is a dirt surfaced, wide, multi-purpose trail. The first section has good views east, and the second part has good views west including Las Vegas and Red Rock. The trail heads south from the under-construction McCullough Hills TH at the end of Mission Blvd (will have water and restrooms), crosses over the hill crest ridge at about half way, and continues west to Anthem Hills Park TH. It is very easy to follow until about mile 6.8, when a welter of official (Anthem Hills East and Bursage Loop) and unofficial trails confuses things. Head along the ridge and then the power line. The trailhead is a kiosk on McCullough Hills Parkway, not in the park as one would expect. The Anthem East Trail TH is in the park and can be used as an alternate.

Nice hike. I did about 3 miles in and will be back. It would be great on a bike.

The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because it is a dog poop landmine of a trail.

Otherwise, gorgeous!

Great trail. populated for the first 2.5 miles then you are on your own after that. random cars shot full of holes to be found.

It was a great hiking trail. Loved when I hit the hills with the switch backs to increase the intensity. It was nice to have little break points with benches too.
