Beautiful hike. The waterfalls and pools make great spots to just enjoy the moment, cool off, and have a snack. Water is cold but refreshing! We made it more difficult than needed by going the wrong way, but will definitely try it again on the main trail. Flies/bugs were awful and took away from my enjoyment of the scenery. Definitely spray up and take a hat to shoo them away.

This was a great hike. There are a hand full of pretty water falls along the way and lots of spots to swim (water is cold.) The trail isn't that difficult to follow but i would download to trail map from alltrails, I referred to it a few times. It took me 1hr 20 min to get to the end and I was stopping a lot to take pictures. The way back probably took around 40 min. Yes there are little flys that get all up in your business but they don't bite. I wear "hoo-rag" over my face and it allows me to breathe without feeling like I'll inhale a bug. Fun Hike!

We loved this one! The trail is hard to follow but there is so many outcroppings to explore and climb you dont really mind losing the trail. There were enough people coming back to point us in the right direction.

Visited Bassi today. Beautiful as always. Not much water but what there was was clear and crisp.

Whoever said you can’t get lost, hasn’t met me yet. We got lost, ended up scrambling up a rocky hillside that was nearly vertical to get back to the trail. The views were incredible! The waterfall is small but beautiful. We went early and there were still a lot of people. All in all, a beautiful hike, definitely moderate trail. We will hike it again one day but stay on the trail the next time!!

this us one of my favorite places to go, especially if you climb to the top of the falls and hike back. it's like a little oasis. you never run out of exploring options.

Beautiful hike! Totally worth it, especially if you keep going above the falls to Avalanche Lake. The extended hike up to the lake is hard (climbing over boulders at a very steep incline). There are absolutely no trail markers which is why I gave it 4 vs 5 stars.

I love this hike because it is mostly moderate if you pace yourself. It does have slot of switchbacks. I love the view from the falls. It’s s great place to rest before your descend.

so fun!

It’s a good trail. Switchback hell towards the end, but worth it.

Beautiful views from the falls.

Love this trail *****

Beautiful easy ride.

Loved it!

Went in summer so it was 90° hot and the waterfalls were quite lacking in water. Still overall pretty interesting hike.

Very easy and relaxing hike.

Was there early September 2018 and there was no waterfall at the triple fall. It was all dried up. Overall, the hike was fairly easy.

Great hike....

Pretty hike, several switchbacks along the face. The hike is prettier than the destination of Lake Agnew though. Recommend going in morning if hot weather as the rocks can get pretty warm

awesome hike!!

Dogs are allowed, and the drive down is great just have a good SUV. Also, very remote with no cell coverage.

This was a good little hike for beginners. There a lot of younger hikers on the trail witch explains the amount of graffiti and garbage left up and down the pathes. Its best to stay on the trail to maintain the integrity of the adventure. Erosion it destroying the trail dew to off trail hiking. We still enjoyed the deer, chipmunks and occasional bird. I will do this again with our young kids.

This was a very last minute decision, after driving around... exploring outside of the glamorous Vegas area. So - we didn’t have anything packed. One water bottle each and my better half even climbed the trail in flip flops (not recommended) lol He’s still pretty upset about that but overall we’re both glad we did it! Beautiful views!!

Nice walk around the lake. Then go get breakfast in south lake.

Took the shuttle in (stop 6) and hiked down the trail to the falls. Shuttle is $8 per person round trip. The trail can be pretty heavily trafficked at times, especially in the summer , especially around the shuttle stops. Between stops, the traffic on the trail decreases significantly, which leads to a very pleasant walk.

Reaching the Postpile Monument is quite interesting with a trail going to the top and another at the bottom. The view at the top is nice but not worth it if you're pressed for time. The trail at the bottom offers more interesting photo opportunities.

Hiking to rainbow falls is fairly easy. The trail is well maintained overall and not heavily trafficked. The crowds do increase quite a bit when you reach close to the falls as the views impress. The viewpoints in a couple spots are quite good.

Hiking back up to the bus stop (stop 10) is a bit hard. It may be the elevation that adds to it but it's harder than any other part of the trail.

amazing trail, mellow ascend with an intense ride down with drops and exposure /Ikes Peak!

Son and I tackled what we have been driving by for 20 years. You know you’re at the top when you find the lake. Absolutely breathtaking!

It was definitely a good work out. There were some nice scenery but nothing that I felt captured by.

Getting to the lake seemed less intuitive towards the end (after the “lake Agnew access” sign), but keep going and there’s a bridge on the left.

Fun short walk around the like....perfect for mountain biking

We had a fabulous time. There was quite a few people on the trail or I would’ve given this a 5 star rating. We were taking a few days off in Vegas and heard about Mt. Charleston. We didn’t have any gear at all so I did this hike in flip flops! This is an intermediate/ beginner hike. I would suggest shoes. Stay on the trail otherwise it’s pretty dangerous. We really enjoyed the big pine trees and lovely scenery. The actual trail is beautiful. We did this hike in mid summer. It was 115 degrees downtown and 74 degrees and sprinkling in the hike so it was awesome to get out of the heat. The views and the trickling water fall was all worth it. There’s perm. outhouse bathrooms, which came in handy. The restaurant and picnic area were way too jam packed to find a parking spot and stay and check it out.
