Easy climb and we'll maintained. Got VERY congested by 11 as we were finishing up. Lots of big groups and dogs (not all necessarily well behaved or leashed.)

Beautiful and full of nature and wildlife! We had to get a later start than normal as they don't start letting you into the park until 9 am during winter hours and it was $6 to enter but well worth it. The pups had a great time! You can definitely make it much longer than the loop states because there are trails and pathways zigzagging throughout all the lakes and park areas. Fantastic walk! Lots to see. Definitely "easy"!

Beautiful views. Not difficult until the end.

Nice Saturday morning hike with the family! There was ice at the fall and a lot of water, it is amazing after a few weeks of rain!

Beautiful hike trail the red rock reminds me of Sedona, AZ the view is spectacular

Had me sweating from the start to end! Overall a great hike.

I love this walk! I do this several times a week early in the morning with my pups. Great views of the city and best of all the mountains surrounding Las Vegas. Very well maintained and lots of doggy poop stations. To add some adventure take a side trail to the top it's absolutely spectacular!

Bring a small med kit with tweezers. Our dog got cactus spike things in his paws and my husband had to get them out with his hands. Wish we'd brought tweezers with us. Other than that perfect day hike we very much enjoyed.

Added the La Madre Springs leg to this trips White Rock loop. Good overall hike and trails.

The best time to go is the day after a moderate to heavy rainfall where the streams and creeks are flowing with water, but be prepared to get your feet wet as you'll have to wade or rock hop through the "first creek" by the main road. If you make it to the "end", you'll be rewarded with a waterfall that's worth photographing from many different angles.

For those wanting a challenge, continue hiking into the canyon and following the creek to your side. You'll come across some nice clearings and rock formations. The foliage will get thicker the further you go into the canyon, making for a semi surreal experience as if you just entered a storybook woods with giant gnarly tree roots included.

Zigzag your way across the creek, and you'll come across some miniature, but quaint waterfalls and pools. Look up to the canyon walls and you'll also see water sliding down the rock face, making for some nice photos if you can get close enough. If you're really lucky you may spot the outline of a hawk flying high above the canyon.
