Its a pretty chill hike and you can see Lake Mead as you go on the trail. The trail is pretty flat, and there are some things to read on about the history of the trail.

This was a great trail! My boyfriend and I took our dog and she loved it! There was a lot of people around the entrance and everywhere in general but you still felt away from the busy city.

Park at Quarry and begin your route. It is not the best marked but when you start stay along the riverbed and turn toward the red rock. Lots of people to follow and nice hike.
Do not be fooled there are lots of rocks and other items to scamper over and at the top you will have to scamper to the end. The view is cool. Worth the time.

I enjoyed this trail. It had a variety of terrains.

Perfectly moderate difficulty trail. There are some side paths that can make it more difficult but the main path is very pleasant.

Hiked on 12/28/19 - windy conditions, temp high 30s, sunny

Make sure to have extra layers if there's wind, it can cut through the canyon and feel quite cool if you're out of the sun. Beautiful view out to Las Vegas at the top (scramble up the rocks to get the best unimpeded view of the strip) and a straightforward hike. Trail is easy to follow and has only moderate climbs. Great trail for anyone of any fitness level, short and sweet with a great view.

Great hike. Completed today and the cold weather made it even better. Not technical just be cautious with the loose sand making rocks slippery.

A bit more than moderate.

Enjoyable hike for beginners. Cool view at the end.

Only rated 4 instead of 5 because I found it much easier than "moderate", thus this is innacurately rated imo. I have almost zero hiking experience. Very little difficulty if you are slightly fit and an average height. Saw many kids on the trail. The majority of it could be jogged.

Approx. 55min. up taking breaks, waiting for someone, but I think I could complete the uptrek in 40 if I went at my own pace the whole time. Minimal scrambling/decline slopes.

Lovely Day Hike

Easy, flat walk through tunnels with nice views of Lake Mead. We were there on Christmas Eve and only three of the tunnels were open. Seems like a nice place to take the dogs, too.

took my son, we love this trail!!

Great hike!

We did this hike on Christmas Day and it was beautiful. Very little water, definitely no waterfalls. We went a little beyond the trail and climbed some larger rocks and sat on top for awhile to take it all in. The petroglyphs were a bonus. I would hike this trail again.

Closed after 3rd tunnel. Easy hike other than that

I had so much fun on this trail. I followed the river bed all the way up, I hiked this trail for 4 hours . The water falls was amazing. Saw a deer with large antlers.

It takes some leg work and much climbing. Overall good hike!

Shapes of big rocks are very unique.

The elevation gain when you’re starting so high up unexpectedly kicked my butt, made the switchbacks a bit more uncomfortable since it added strain to monotony, but the end of the trail was quite worth it. I did this back in July, and despite the cooler weather up in Mt Charleston, laying on the rocks was amazing. The water was little but so ice cold, it was wonderful. Beautiful scenes

Great hike, but for me it was more strenuous than moderate. The last half mile is a steep climb. The pour-off had just a little water coming down it. Great photography spot! Highlight though was seeing a huge black bear going up and then again coming down.

Great hike, very scenic. Not too challenging. The falls at the top are beautiful.

This is a fine hike, nothing spectacular, except for the view near the end of the trail. OK for families with kids.

Beautiful views at the top. Not very difficult if you use common sense.

A great trail that has a view making it worth it. in the early spring you might see some water in the tank itself.

Very good challenge!

Beautiful area. Trails are easy to get off course though. Second time we have done this and not exactly finished it because we got off course.

I never thought of myself as someone who would climb up and over rocks. For the most part we followed footprints when it was unclear where the trail was. I think we took the hard way a good bit, but we had fun and it is great view all the way to the top. We were not disappointed.
