I can never finish this trail! And every time I hike it seems as I've never hiked this trail!! Fun and never boring on this trail before. Ha! Boulder hopping w my pooch entertaining. Be careful out there! Hip hip Hooray!

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

Great Hike! Offers good scenic views of both the East and West sides of the Spring Mountains!

Love this trail. It's beautiful in the fall, the trees were amazing. My dog loved the cooler weather. Mostly uphill on the way to the falls, a little more relaxed the way back. I've done this hike half a dozen times and it's great each time!

Parked at Spooner Summit to save us each $8. adds a couple miles to the hike. Beautiful hike gorgeous fall colors.

Hiked it at the end of september. Cabin was well stocked with necessities. Spring was trickling with water which we filtered and used for cooking. Plenty of places to pitch tents or hang hammocks around the cabin. Beautiful ponderosa pines everywhere around the cabin area. A great hike that starts in the desert and ends in a pine forest. No fires allowed when we went but there is a wood burning stove in the cabin. At least half of the hike is in a wash so the climb is a bit strenuous especially if you are carrying a lot of weight. I would not rely on the water in summer months although it was flowing at about .5L/min while we were there.

The best park I've been to anywhere near Vegas! Huge, lush and green with tons of trees, tons of open areas, playgrounds, picnic places. The dog park was excellent with lots of shady trees as well.

Great hike - amazing views !

Wonderful loop. Easier if done counterclockwise, less steep.

Beautiful views. Sad though that there was a bunch of trash. Dirty diapers, beer bottles, empty cartons, etc.

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!

The trail is definitely not friendly in the summer as you spend most of it in the sun. My 11 year old daughter and I run together often and thought this would be a great place to run, but I slipped on loose gravel three times and eventually sprained my ankle. However, we did take a lunch that we enjoyed at the waterfall before running back and it was a great experience.

Fantastic short hike with a spectacular payout at the top. Trail can get crowded on the weekends but the crowds don't spoil the fun. It's a constant gradual incline all the way to the top so if your not in relatively good shape you'll feel the burn in your legs and your lungs. Pack a lunch and enjoy the views.

Nice outside of Elko. Hills, trees and streams are great for pictures.
