Hiked this this afternoon with my two dogs. it was windy, snowy, and raining. Still had a nice easy hike.

I went Jan 12 @ 11:30am. It was a bit cloudy, no rain though. I'm not an experienced hiker and went solo.

Plenty of parking when I went, but I can see it being packed pretty quickly. I don't know if I fell off the trail, but I was following it and eventually went up some boulders and got lost. I remember reading it's supposed to be 2-3 hours, took me 4 1/2 to get back to my car. I never found the waterfall, but got some great pictures. There were two people scaling the mountain which I thought was crazy, but you can see that they had the proper equipment and were experienced but really great to see. A bit of poop, nothing crazy though. Definitely has cactus everywhere. Not much wildlife, found a creek though. Ill try again to find this waterfall and maybe not get lost. It was very easy to navigate back to your car though because of the landscape.

A walk in the park with ponds and shade trees in the picnic areas. Stroller friendly, too.

Very fun with the fresh snow! Microspikes/yaktrax definitely not required at this point, but you might find they come in handy near the end. The seasonal spring at the end is frozen over currently but it's a fun short hike.

Easy out and back with nice views.

Small park. Not much here.. can pet the animals running around

Lovely park—you almost forget you’re in Las Vegas. Lakes, peacocks, bunnies, and historical buildings. What more do you need!? Dirt trails for mountain biking too.

Starts out as a fairly easy trail, but toward the end of the trail there are a lot of off-shoots that can cause minor confusion. Plenty of shade, and lower elevation than other trails in the area.

Lots of people. Trail not greatly marked. Doesn’t really have an “end” to the trail. Saw rock climbers which was fun. Would recommend.

Stayed at an Airbnb for $25 in this neighborhood and walked over to this area. It is a change of pace for what you would expect for Vegas hiking/walking. Humid air rises from the wetlands and there can be mosquitoes. Mostly saw families out enjoying an evening walk. Would go again if in the area.

I actually really like this easy hike because its versatile & you can go lots of different directions & very dog friendly. Some cool views & rock slides at the top.

The best time is near sunset because there’s less traffic and it’s cooler. You get to enjoy a lot of nature sounds.

Did run into some young kids smoking pot, but got paranoid and left shortly after

Bottom Line: Like walking through Skyrim in real life.

Went with the somewhat-out-of-shape hubby and my 10-year old dog and both were able to handle this trail with ease. There was no water, so we went all the way to the end and I climbed the boulders and kept going until the way was completely blocked without climbing equipment. Very shady, but also extremely crowded on a Saturday, even early in the morning, and hardly anyone kept their dogs on leashes so at one point this giant Great Dane just ran up to my poor dog and there really wasn't much I would have been able to do if the owner hadn't been there to grab it real quick. If you take your dog, keep it on a leash and pick up after it!

Good neighborhood bike or hike. not heavily trafficked

Great running path. goes further on bike:run trail outside loop

Nice hike but we traveled this October and there was no waterfall or pond to see. The trail is poorly marked after the first mile. The area is beautiful to see!

Fun and easy! Canyon part towards the end is dope.

This wasn't an easy hike for us (family of 4, with a 4yr old and 9yr old). Maybe we are just out of shape but I would call it moderate, not easy. It started out easy enough but then goes straight up and is more like mountain climbing. We had to stop several times and there were younger (more in-shape) hikers that were stopped as well.

The trail is also very hard to find if you don't know the area. The map will take you to a closed off gate and Little Falls isn't even listed on the newer maps. You don't know if you are on the right trail until you are halfway there. We just followed the directions written by someone else on here and finally found it after about 10 minutes of driving back and forth and searching for "stairs".

fabulous

Easy to follow trail that offered some beautiful views. Minimal shade, especially noticeable with a mid-day hike in September!! We heard a few birds but not lucky enough to see any wildlife today.

Good solid hike uphill all the way along the wash. We cut off at Eagle’s Nest trailhead but from the road to Eagle’s Nest trailhead it was nice. To bad this time of year (Sept.) the water wasn’t flowing.

Nice and short for smaller kids and dogs

I loved this place when few knew about it. Parents allow their kids to be cruel to the animals who have made this park their home, and the staff is nowhere to be found.

Easy and great fun for families!

This was a nice, moderately easy, trail to take some visitors to for a little hike. They aren't used to the elevation and don't generally hike, so this was a good trail with beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend.

Nice peaceful relatively easy hike. Good intermittent shade for a break when needed. Decent views up and back. Our route measured 3.6 miles. I think we went a little further and a little higher.

Lovely hike
