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.

The hike up was long and exhausting.. But the view the entire way up was beautiful!! Definitely worth it!!

Great for biking or walking the dog!

I followed the loop suggested by BLM, the ones who put the trail marker, and I did reach the top however, the trail afterwards was not well-defined and it was easy to go off-trail. I did the hike this morning with 95+degree weather and I would highly recommend to bring a lot of water and a buddy when doing this because right around 9:30 the Temperature skyrocketed and looking for those trail markers was a b****. I would recommend the trails done by people usually instead of the loops (bring a buddy for it). Overall, amazing wildlife and faunas. Challenging towards the end but the view is so worth it!

This is a great bike trail easy to follow. It can get really crowded in the mornings. Lots of different activities taking place at the same time biking, running, walking, hiking and a few people just sitting on the benches watching.

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!

Nice ride for cyclists

Very easy until the end. It does make you work to get to the top. The view looking east from the summit is amazing.

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

Very difficult towards the top and it takes a lot out of you! Beautiful view start early it gets hot on the way back!

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.

lots of people, really easy hike.

Great trail. populated for the first 2.5 miles then you are on your own after that. random cars shot full of holes to be found.

Great hike. Very challenging towards the end. Would rate this as a moderate hike instead of easy.

Great Ride
