This hike is the best of worlds and the worst of worlds. Virtually no wildlife and nothing but rock, rock and more rock. You are either walking up a steep incline or down a steep incline - there is nothing inbetween. It's (only) redeeming feature is the view from the top. Spectacular, and peering over the ledge toward Lake Mead is a treat. That, and the fact that, virtually wherever you are in Las Vegas, you can point to the imposing Frenchman Mountain and say "I hiked that."

This is actually a cool place to walk if you don't want to leave civilization. It's quite pretty and it's really easy.

Tough, rough hike that will kick you in the gut right from the start. The end result makes it worth it! Wear proper hiking shoes and have a celebratory snack, or drink for the summit. Coming down isn't easy, the loose rocks make it tough to keep footing. It's a workout!

Good trail. Rocks were not friendly but that's what a hike is too me. I loved it. Enjoyed myself. Good work out. Quiet. Kind of cold. Note tho that you will have to park in the dirt next to the road. But don't park in front of the gate. No one bothered my car while being parked there. There is no where else to park. Sooo yea.

Beautiful view, work the work to get to the top! Not easy, bring lots of water and some snacks. But so worth it!

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

This was a pretty hard trail. Pretty steep and rocky. It was fun and had some nice views.

great as and pretty! there was several areas to park to pick up the trail along the way u had options. I did it today. the view is amazing

Awesome Nature Stairclimber! Steep, loose rock, graded path straight up the mountain with an average 20% grade and try to be kind to your ankles and knees coming down. A really nice hike with very few other hikers due to the steep incline. Nice views of the desert and Las Vegas. Since this was December, no wildlife (i.e. snakes), and chilly in the morning (38 degrees F).

Flag is back 12/4/16. Best view in Las Vegas.

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.
