Not too challenging! Beautiful views!

Short Steep Hike - lots of fun, but bring 30-40% more water than you think you need (We did this in November when it was 80 and still ran out of water on way back). I wouldn't recommend doing this in the summer unless you start before sunrise.

Follow the markings once the trail becomes less clear, they are painted on the rocks. The general path stays low near gully, on the left side. If you are FAR left on that hill, you are off the path. Have fun and take pictures!

5 star hike, perfect hike to go with your family or amateurs hikers. Nice views at the end of the trail.

Hike took 4 hours with a half hour stop at the summit. Beautiful views of canyon and strip. We went on a Sunday without much foot traffic once you past the first mile bring plenty of water and a snack

Beware of cacti! I stopped to sit on a rock to tie my shoe halfway through & limped the rest of the way back due to pricks in my behind! That’s on me though. Besides the cacti, we saw lots of snakes, birds, & squirrels! Pretty views, easy hike.

Neat trial heavily traveled. Just about right for my wife and I. My 50th birthday and made it to the top in 1 hour. Great view of Vegas!

It’s full of scrambling once you get in the canyon. Not the best for trail running but I’d do it again if I wanted that type of vibe.

Loved it. Went with an inexperienced friend and she had a blast. Great views towards the end of the trail and plenty of places to stop and grab some nice photos. There are a few places towards the end where kids or pets may have a few issues climbing some boulders but for adults it was awesome!

Started at 2:30 and the first uphill part was hot, but then the entire afternoon in the shade. Distinct color changes along the way. Only saw 5 or 6 other people on trail.

I love it !
It’s the best trail
Trying it again this Thursday

This hike was tougher than I expected. The trails was difficult to stick with and I think I added at least an extra mile wandering around. It was an interesting and fun scramble though and the view from the top was much better than expected! Don’t forget the sunscreen and water!

Went through this trail head today at about 10 o’clock. The parking lot was already pretty crowded and there were plenty of hikers on the trail on the way up to the tanks just take your time and you’ll have an amazing view at the end. Plenty of spaces for you to sit and relax and enjoy the view before you head back. I was even able to see a tarantula crossing the path in front of me which was a bonus.
A Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks.

The hike was great. Not a lot to see on the way up but the view from the top is magnificent. Lots of loose footing so watch you step

This hike was hot, but it was beautiful! The white rock area changes as you loop around; reds, white, Joshua trees. I’m not big on desert hiking in general but am so glad I did this one. I would skip La Madre Springs, though. I only went to the spring itself, maybe it’s incredible up higher.
I started at the willow springs picnic area, trail the entire way. The only wildlife I saw were geckos and chipmunks, though did look for bighorn sheep.

Couple of areas where trail markings were not clear but the payoff....WOW! 360 panorama of the Vegas basin and Red Rock valley. Awesome!!! Worth the effort.

The other best hike in Red Rock! Make sure to go in March or April when the snow melts. It's not a hard trail by any means unless you want to climb up to the pool where the waterfall goes in.

One of the nicest views and hikes in the area. Some of the trail isn't well marked, I heard it is now so going back next month to do it again. It's not well shaded so make sure to wear a hat, sunscreen, and water. Parking wasn't abundant so you'll have to wait for a spot or park on the One-Way road around Red Rock Canyon.

Started at 6:30am and had the place to myself! Took about 3.5 hours total including a 30 min break at the top. Toughest part of the hike is the middle portion...really gets your heart pumping. On the way down, be careful of loose gravel. Even being cautious, I still almost busted my butt a good 5 or 6 times (didn’t have any problems on the way up). Loved this beautiful and challenging hike!

Good morning hike before work type of trail.. just bring a bottle of water.

Enjoyed the strip view

Very good hike with endless possibilities to climb out of the canyon to get great views of the strip!!

Great trail. Make sure you keep going all the way to the top where there are remnants of some sort of camp (structure and fire ring). Really great views along the way. Bring lots of water.

Download the georeferenced map from the Red Rock website. It's REALLY helpful because it's hard to know where the trail goes. It's not marked at all once you get to the bouldering parts, so the map really helps if you aren't intuitive. I don't recommend this as a beginner's hike, as the rocks can be a bit challenging. It's very sunny, and the canyon walls block any breeze so the hike is HOT. The bouldering never gets TOO hard/dangerous - if it does, you've gone off path and missed the various stairs that make it easier.

This is a great hike with amazing 360* views at the summit. Well worth the time and effort.

Nice, easy hike with great views. Just enough to get the blood pumping. One of my favorite in Red Rock.
