Great uphill run. Definitely coming back to use this hike as a training workout.

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

Otherwise, gorgeous!

This an easy, enjoyable trail and gives you a little workout getting up the mesa. My little dog loves it. Close to home and the lower trails are fun on the bike.

Short and sweet. Good everyday trail.

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.

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

Nice run, but getting up to the summit involved a little bit of climbing.

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.

I live in this neighborhood and its always maintained properly. The evening time is quite and you can even catch airplanes landing, it is an experience.

great bike trail/running trail!

Was disappointed at the beginning as the start of the trail was paved. Gradually got better and rougher. Good views from the high point.

A solid hike that shoots you right up into an uphill climb from the start. There are some long stretches of uphill climb with loose rocks on the ground, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

while driving east on lake mead blvd you'll see a fence with steel wires for rope, that's where you'll need to park - there won't be any signs pointing to the trail.

You start off with a decent uphill trek, followed by a an even longer uphill climb followed by several switchbacks. At the top you'll feel as though you've reached the top, but will be surprised to find out you have another totally different hill to climb lol. Same pattern: long uphill stretch, followed by a few more switchbacks. But there is much better footing on the final hill so the climb up isn't that difficult.

Bring lots of water & some food to reenergize before heading back (especially if you're planning on doing this in the summer) - and enjoy the view at the top!!!

Overall this hike will give your legs an amazing workout, and the view at the top of Vegas is amazing.

Uploaded a few pics to give you a better idea~ (also a very short video of the hike for reference - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykoTwGsHY9k)

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.
