About an hour up, steep terrain but a great view at the top.

I like this trail due to the rapid elevation gain! great little exercise trail for those who want to get one in on the fly. the only down side to this hike is that there is a large saddle that zaps your morale!

great hike, good elevation change. 112° heat made it challenging.

I was on @ 5:45 and off by 6:45 for an easy 6 miler with great scenic views and some random flora, hub caps, etc. The path I took which was where this app dropped me on the map was a rolling paved bike path with various terrain off shoots. I noticed 3 or 4 branches into other dirt roads, horse trails, etc that I might go back and try for a bit more adventure. I'm guessing the other photos are from shimmying down in the canyon which might be fun but I kept thinking flash flood and your toast. Temperature was fine for this San Diego guy but I wouldn't want to be out here after 7:30am in July.

Since it was not evidently clear to us ill post here so that others know this is primarily a bike path through open desert. The whole way is paved. Based on the photos we assumed this hike was through a canyon. The canyon area is accessible near the river mountain path but it would require a decent bit of scrambling especially after heavy rain last weekend. We couldnt get down as we had our 2 dogs with us. Also be sure to bring sunscreen and plenty of water as this path is direct sun with no shade.

the trail isn't that difficult, just a bunch of switchbacks. the view from the top is redeeming but there is little to see on the way up. There is a fair amount of liter and a couple abandoned karmenn Ghias along the way.

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.

A steep camelback trail with a lot of loose rocks. Someone mentioned a walking stick ... I would second that thought. This one is a workout!!

2nd trip because I didn't have enough water for the 1st and results are still brutal, but I did make it. In total it's 5.8 miles long, not 3.4 as stated. Tips: have good hiking boots and trekking polls. Bring at least 100 oz of water, a snack, and wear sun screen. The views, I presume would be beautiful at night so I'll probably do it again. Overall, 5 stars for a sense of accomplishment and workout, 3 stars for the hike.

Brutal but glad I did it. Tip... Bring water and something with sugar as it's a lot longer than 3.4 miles, at least 4.5 miles but feels much longer. One guy passed out and for good reason. Moderate is putting it lightly. I'd place it in between moderate and difficult. Hiking sticks are a bonus and when you think you're at the top, you're not. You'll know what I mean when you hit first peak. Good luck.

Great view. I was literally the only person on the trail. Overall the hike took me about 2 and a half hours. I stopped and lunched, but the hike is steep, fun, but steep.

This is a great trail. I did a out and back hike going north. There are beautiful views of Henderson and Las Vegas. Henderson is doing a wonderful job making interesting hiking trails.
