This trail begins in a nicely forested area with white fir and large aspen, and climbs until you reach the rugged, exposed upper slopes with bristlecone pines. The trail is easy to follow for both hikers and bikes, with many spots along the trail to stop and admire the view. Be sure and look up at the ski slopes in Lee Canyon, you will often see wild horses grazing on the grass in late spring, summer, and fall. The flexibility of this trail can be appreciated by all levels of hikers; tailor the hike to the type of terrain you enjoy. Plenty of lunch spots along the trail, but no water to hike to.

I’m a fairly new hiker, the beginning and areas throughout were very icy. Areas of snow that’s not packed in will send you 6-12 inches deep. The trail itself was hard to follow with no signs and i did make the mistake of not downloading a map. With the faults in mind the trail was still beautiful, we got there at 6 am and hiked a bit to see the sunrise. I do recommend for a well prepared hiker.

A great heavily wooded trail that allows you to get truly lost on the beauty of the natural world.

An excellent hike. First, I was almost scared off by reviewers who said that the ascent on the Upper Trail was very difficult. It wasn’t. It was a super easy, very gradual incline. We just did the upper and were not disappointed. It is a wooded trail that has spectacular mountain views throughout. Bring some cold weather gear though as it was 55-48 degrees on our hike when it was 75 degrees in Las Vegas.

Great easy to moderate hike. Beautiful and varied scenery. The only negative is the people who don’t clean up after their dogs. There were many “land mines” especially at the beginning of the trail. Maybe provide some poop bags st the trailhead. Otherwise spectacular!

My boyfriend and I took our 11 year old pit bull for a hike and she loved it!! Lots of shade and easy climb. We didn’t make it to the end as pups got tired. We expected there to be a lot more people as it’s Labor Day! we had a blast!!!

Went on this hike with my husband and our 6 month old son. Moderate incline, plenty of shade, and extraordinary view when you get to the top. Loved it.

Perfect day for a great hike. Started out at 5pm when it was 70 degrees and finished two hours later when it was 60 degrees. It was cool, crisp, and peaceful the entire way. Fantastic views. Saw a bunch of wild horses as I was driving out (I guess maybe they come out to graze around dusk?). One of the most enjoyable hikes I've ever had.

Great hike. Wide trail with a gradual Incline. started at 6:30am the first of August and it was in the upper 50's. I was the first person on the trail that got a little busy later. Was able to get good pics of wild life including a deer that seemed as curious of me as I was of her. it was exactly 2.4 miles to the junction of Lower Bristlecone trail. Good views. Only down side was a kid smoking on the trail. On the one hand to be climbing at that altitude and puffing on a cancer stick...to be young, foolish and be able to get away with it, wow. It kind of sucked breathing smoke on such a beautiful nature hike, but a good hike regardless. Took me just under 2 hours and there were about 18 cars parked when I left the trailhead at 8:30. I'll be back to this one.

My family and I really enjoyed this hike . It was so nice to beat the heat and be in the Forrest. We even got to see 5 wild horses. Wow were they beautiful. Gorgeous fews and lots of places to stop and take in all the beauty. We will definitely be going back to do it again.

This is my favorite trail in the Mt. Charleston area. It’s perfect for my skill and fitness levels. The trail is well marked and nicely maintained. The views are wonderful.

We didn’t get too far into the trail when we quickly realized the snow was knee-deep. There are rails alongside the trail and the snow was covering much of the railing, making the trail hard to follow. We thought we could push through, but we kept sinking into the snow & thought it would be dangerous to continue. The view at the beginning was beautiful, and I definitely want to return when there isn’t snow to give this trail a proper try.

Great trail, easy to follow. Moderate trail. Beautiful trees all along the way.

Pretty walks through the trees and lots of shade and a nice view at the top. You can continue the trail to complete lower bristlecone, but you will have to hike back up the road to your vehicle.

Very cool trail. Not super aggressive, but pretty.

We love this trail. If you want to do the entire loop, start from Lower Bristlecone Trail. Otherwise, you will have to finish the loop with a grueling march back to your car, about 800-900 ft. gain in just over a half mile. It's not unusual to see wild horses, burros, or chipmunks in the general area. The Upper Bristlecone is shaded, whereas you'll take in a lot of rays on the lower part, so remember sunscreen. Where the upper and lower meet, you can stray off on Bonanza Trail too.

It gets pretty chilly up there. Also hailed and rained on us. If you get cold fast bring a jacket. It was a fun and easy hike!

My friend and I kind of stumbled upon this hike because we didn’t realize there was a trail near lee canyon. It was a really great hike through the forest. There are a lot of aspens and parts of the trail go through an ephemeral stream. It’s really pretty. The views at the end of the trail are well worth the trek in. It looked like you could even keep going at the end, and if we had more time we would’ve gone further.
