The hike is nice and flat, but it is not intended to be open year round. Signs will say no hiking may-sept. I went with a camelback, and survived, but bring lots of extra water. There are 5 tunnels and a loop, take the short cut to the dam, the big circle only has more rocks to look at. There are bats in the tunnels, you can hear and smell them, but they stay up in the ceiling.

There is a fee to enter Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area, but it's worth it. The trail is easy the first mile, then moderate the next 3/4 of a mile, and the last 3/4 mile is difficult. Early morning the mountain itself gives you shade. The trail is randomly marked, and if you are not careful you can get off the trail ... Which increases the difficulty of the hike. Watch out for loose rock with sand ... Especially on the way down. Remember falling up the mountain is better than falling down the mountain! Great views at the top make it worth the effort!!

The hike is rather residential for a while, but very pretty still. Most of it is along the creek, but at one point it reaches a fork. I didn't use the tracker, so I didn't know which way to go, but I stuck right in the direction of the creek. Once I reached the fork, I didn't pass any people. It was very nice and peaceful. My dog loved playing in the creek. Most of it is shaded, so that's nice for a late start to the hike and it's very flat most of the way. Very small inclines.

I found this trail to be difficult going up, but the view was definitely worth it. The whole hike took us maybe 3 hours, if I am remembering correctly and was close enough for a lovely afternoon in the Potholes.

Hiked this on the weekend. There was NO parking! That is how packed it was. I had to wait for a spot to open up. Trail was just what I expected. View from the top was super! I wanted to run the way down to get a good workout in. That part was slightly challenging as there was a line of people in front of me for quite some time. They were much slower and I didn't want to be rude. I did feel bad for the dogs that were out there There were lots of them...big and small. I thought it was way too hot and a bit too difficult to do this hike with your dog. Especially the smaller ones. One even cut his paw on a rock. :-(

The reviews written before mine are very accurate. The hike until the waterfall is enjoyable but from there to the summit is where it gets challenging. I am not so athletic but my friends pushed me hard to finish the hike. I would say this my first and most outstanding hikes of so far. Push yourself to the end because it is worth every bit of it.

Seems to be mostly incline. Not difficult but defin not easy. Had to stop and catch a breather a few times as I am a bit more heavy set. Come early as parking gets packed after about 9am. Only do this is you don't mind sharing trail with many people. Lots of people brought their pups and everyone is so friendly.

It was a great moderate trail, a good warm-up for Turtlehead Peak which is next on my list. The trail is part of the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area and you will need to pay a fee for entry. The trail starts at the Sandstone Quarry Parking Lot, and follows a wash that can be challenging for portions of the trail. Wear shoes that facilitate climbing on and over rocks. Once you get to the top reserve some time to explore and take in the view. Las Vegas has great hiking in all directions.

Wanted to get away from traffic of The Strip, so found this park for morning walk. Very nice park for walking, jogging or bike ride. The outer loop registered 1.7 miles for me, but there are many cross paths to keep it from getting boring. I was there from 7-8:30 with temperatures 85-91 in July. It was not too hot with some parts in shade.
Fabulous creative playgrounds, large green spaces, sports fields, clean and safe.
