Nice single track hike. Dog friendly

The trail starts at the horseback riding stables. There are no trails signs...so my friend and I got a bit lost. It was totally worth it tho! Awesome hike!! The view of Vegas is amazing!!! You can even see lake mead! To find the beginning of the trail walk past the horse corral and walk to your left. We found where it started at the end of the hike

Did on the weekend of October 24. Beautiful day easy hike in and out didn't realize the incline until the way back. Measured about 6 miles ~took about three hours.

these were very generous ratings.... yes there was beautiful scenery (Oct 23) but the trail ended very anticlimacticly by butting up with another trail at a particularly drab location. I'd probably try to incorporate it into a loop next time.

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.

Moderate hike but completely worth the end result. The peak provides sweeping views in almost every direction. Short enough to do in a couple hours or you can connect to other trails.

did this last week with a friend and my husky we very much enjoy the day there.

Awesome hike. Fun to veer off a bit and go to church's pond.

The scenery at this trail is fantastic. However, the first mile or so is full of rocks, which makes for slow moving. Make sure to bring shoes with decent ankle support.

Very pretty hike. I went in late October and the fall colors were gorgeous!

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.

Excellent hike in the fall with all the beautiful fall colors on the aspen trees. There are a couple places where you cross the creek and need to cross on rocks otherwise you'll get your shoes wet. Very shady trail and plenty of parking at the trailhead. Also, pit toilets available at the parking lot/Trailhead. No toilets on the trail. We packed a lunch and ate it at our turn around spot. Very well signed trail. Bring water and a snack or lunch. We hiked a total of 8 miles!

The slots portion of this hike is very interesting but also very short. After that the walk is littered with debris and pricker brushes making it rather unenjoyable and uninteresting. Continue up the mountain to find much better hikes.

I only hiked 3 miles towards the snow valley peak and will have to return next time to get all the way there but I really enjoyed this trail. Some Carson valley and Lake Tahoe views but mostly trail goes through the forest.

first time hiking over 11k ft. Definitely not easy for someone not used to hiking at elevation, but well worth the views. Took us 4 hours to summit, but I'd say we are on the slower end.

Very difficult for a first hike. Pushed myself too hard but was worth it.

Fun trail! Approach this trail in thirds: 1st third of the hike begins from the parking lot to the base of the mountain. This part is easy - rolling hills and hiking up a wash for a portion of this hike. The 2nd third is climbing up the gully: my best advice is to stay on the left side of the gully - follow the green/blue markers. There's a trail that climbs up through a series of switchbacks and some minor bouldering. If you can't find the trail, no worries. Just head straight up until you reach the ridge and the remainder of the trail will be on your right side. The last third of the trail is from the ridge to the peak. Once you reach the ridge, find the trail and head towards the right towards the peak. The trail disappears but just head straight up as you come up the peak from behind. Once you're at the top: relax, eat and drink, take pics and relax some more. Come back down the same way you came up. That's pretty much it.

Things to bring: water - the temp was 85 w a slight breeze. I brought 3 liters: 2 liters of just water and 1 liter with electrolyte mix (tailwind), hat, sun block, snacks for energy ( I brought jerky and cereal)
