Challenging and fun.. very little shade, but I knew it would given it is Vegas.. Trail isn’t marked too welll...

Simply awesome to climb. Views were amazing however, Vegas was a bit smogged over but that did not take away from the experience.

Moderately difficult hike with some scrambling near the peak . great views of LV from the top.

Nice view at the top but lots of people crowding the trail.

The temperature was only around 80F late morning in early July. When it was 104F degree on the Strip, it was an amazingly refreshing experience to hike this trail. Great view and well maintained.

Definitely a winner! A beautiful, isolated peak with a slickrock base that is very fun to explore. You'll probably share this hike with very few people, if you see anyone at all. I hiked from Willow Springs which made it a longer hike, but don't let that deter you; Rocky Gap Road is pretty easy (if a bit boring) to walk and the time goes by quickly. I did this hike earlier in the year; I would not recommend attempting this hike during the hotter months.

Fun hike. View at the end makes it worth it.

The first half was easy. And very enjoyable. the second half the trail pretty much disappeared. loose rocks and scrambling. the long slope to the top was very boring and dull. it's a very hard walk. after I was done I could have kicked myself and should have done more Scenic hike. but I made it to the top.

Excellent hike. Be prepared with lots of water, especially during the summer months; drink plenty before. Fun scrambling/boldering on parts of the hike. Beautiful view at the top, be sure to go to the left after going through the tank.

Tougher than it looks. Bring water and good shoes or boots to wear. View at the top is rewarding.

Absolutely gorgeous. We got deviated just a bit from the trail a couple of times but it ended up actually being 7.92 miles instead. The climb up thru the canyon took awhile but the views were amazing and loved the pain of the upward climb.

Loved this hike!!! Gets your heart pumping but plenty of places to catch your breath and such incredible views!!! I will definitely be doing this one again!

amazing views over the valley.

This is a great option for an evening hike now that the weather is warming up. Never too busy, a nice trail that isn't too tough but is variable enough to be interesting. Climbing to the top of the knoll gives a surprisingly good view for such a little hill. Doing the loop and going around the back of the knoll is great, green and cool and with a little bit of water in the stream from the recent rains. Definitely definitely recommend for a nice peaceful hike.

Beautiful hike. I believe this one is better than Mary Jane Falls. Hiking boots a must.

I'm from Vegas and my sister and I would do this hike a couple times every summer. If it's in the summer, though, you should make sure to get an early start because there's no tree cover until you get to the slope of the actual mountain and even then, it's just some short and pretty sparse junipers. The hike is long and the "trail" becomes less defined as you get closer to the slope of the mountain, so my sister and I would usually end up taking whichever route we wanted that given day, often the wash that was still shaded by the peak. The view at the top isn't great just because visibility isn't great, but otherwise, getting to the top feels pretty good. I would recommend this hike to anyone, just make sure you bring plenty of water!

What a gorgeous view! The weather was great and a welcomed break to the LV heat. It was the perfect getaway for the day. We started the hike at 9:30 am and it was just perfect. It’s definitely a moderate hike, but take stops along the way and enjoy the journey.

After reading all the great reviews on here I had to go and check this trail out for myself this past Saturday.

I’m kicking myself for not going sooner. The views at the bottom are nice but as you start to get near the top they are just absolutely gorgeous.

The trail is mainly on an incline the entire way, so don’t forget to take a break when needed.

We've done this twice on bikes and would do it again any day or night. Perfect views of lake mead and the tunnels are great. At the end there a a restroom, water fountain, and picnic table with gazebo. Perfect first date destination.

this was the first time I hiked anything like this. I felt accomplished! We took my 3 grandkids and my dog and they did fine. Gorgeous views during the entire hike. We even had some rain. At the flat area near the top there is a small flat area you can camp. Leave no trace and no camp fires. This hooked me on hiking! Strenuous hike for beginner, but so worth the pay off.

Great hike with friends. Uphill going to the top of Mount Charleston but you will be rewarded with a great view of the surrounding mountains and valley below. I would definitely do this hike again.

Hot in July but great views

Been a few years since I hiked this trail. It was my first hike in a long time so I found out real quick that I was out of shape (even though I was 7% body fat). I went home exhausted and burnt from the lack of shade and poor preparation, but it was the beginning of a hiking/climbing journey. Since then, I’ve hiked and climbed all over the country!

Beautiful trail to a stellar overlook! We were fortunate enough to get some of that rare Nevada rain on our way back down the mountain! It only added to the adventure and the beauty of the day! This trail is in great shape!

We just completed this hike in the rain and it was gorgeous. The view is phenomenal and totally worth the hike.

I was trying to go to the Trail Canyon Overlook (not to be confused with Trail Canyon!), missed the turn off and wound up here. Glad I did! The view was great and it's always nice to get away from the Vegas heat. This hike is a great work out for the legs and lungs! On my way down, I found the turn off for Trail Canyon Overlook and made my way there. Unfortunately, that trail seemed impassable at a certain part, so I had to turn around. Will definitely do this hike again!

So far my absolute favorite hike as far as view goes. It isn't the most difficult hike but the views and foliage view are breath taking. A great hike for a date too. The top of the rock is a romantic one!!

Fantastic trail. A little harder then described but well worth it despite the 102°F weather. Just stay hydrated!

Excellent view of Las Vegas right before sunset. You’re in the canyon almost the entire way.
