Crappy trail. We enjoyed the hike but I'm not convinced you can follow this trail. We were three experienced hikers who got off this trail a few times and ended up off the trail before turning around and returning. The only highlight was coming off the trail and diverting down along the edge of the canyon on the way back.

Also, really ticked that the visitors center is behind a paid entrance.

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

Fun out and back with small boulder scramble

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!

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

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.

Keep going all the way to the cabin. Bring lots of water.

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!

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

Great trail! Pretty easy, not strenuous at all but does have some bouldering and scrambling towards the back of the gorge. Overall, the views were incredible. We were disappointed to not see much water, but it is technically still summer so that was expected. We definitely started early, on the trail by 7am to avoid the afternoon heat but on our way back there were tons of people just starting out. Lots of rock climbers seem to come through this trail, we were half tempted to start following them just to see where they were going but decided otherwise.

Loved this trail! Enjoyed sitting by the beautiful creek, walking trough the meadow, expansive views of red rocks and climbing through the boulders. I went past the main trail and it was well with the adventure and climbing through the rocks to get to the upper creek. Cairns guided me and I left a few of my own to point the way for others enjoying this trail!

We went just because it was there. Loved it. A bit scrabbly at times. The view of the Strip, Fremont Street and Lake Mead was good. Must be spectacular on an extremely clear day. Take more water than you think you’ll need

Full of tarantula hawks, thistles and cacti. Heard there were rattle snakes. Must be true. Don’t go. Also the cabin is haunted, grudge-style, so a Japanese ghost will eat you.

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

Easy hike up the canyon with some fun bouldering. The canyon has a lot of dog crap and dog crap bags littering the trail.

It was great! Very easy trail until the last .9 mile. I didn’t make it to the very end but there is a huge payoff with an amazing creek! I can’t wait to do it again to see the final finish

Favorite trail in red rock. If you come at the right time of year you can see the waterfall at the end. It was great and refreshing to jump in, but only for the brave since you’ve got to do a bit of heavy climbing to get to the bowl.

The trailhead is easy to miss as it's basically a pull off area right next to the road. The beginning of the trail is well marked and easy to follow. A sign says it's a 1.5 mile in and out trail. I'm not sure where the trail actually ends. It went from wide enough for two people to more and more narrow. Eventually I think we were blazing our own trail. The well defined portion of the trail was long enough that you could still get a nice walk in without having to make your own trail. We walked all the way to the base of the mountain. Despite the lack of defined trail, I would certainly give this trail again.

The hike was very horizontal and not suitable for any temperature other than a morning climate. Overall, though, the sights were breathtaking, and it was definitely worth my time.

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.

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.

Great trail, basically a walking tour of Red Rock. I've done it clockwise and counterclockwise and don't really have a a preference on which is the "better" way to travel the loop. Clockwise gets the "boring" Jeep trail out of the way and leaves the scenic Calico portion for the end. Counterclockwise gives you a great scenic start and ends with an easier return on the Jeep trail. Can't go wrong either way. Pretty easy to follow, can get a little hard to find the trail when it intersects with the trailheads but nothing too frustrating. Definitely recommend waiting for cooler weather to do this hike.

Holy cow. You gotta WORK for this one! Made it to the arch, but wasn't able to go any further due to a thunderstorm that closed in on us fast as we traversed up the crack below the arch. Just enough time to get up, take a few pics, and get back down. Started pouring just after we climbed back out of the final chute on the return. Will definitely be coming back to summit.... Two things: 1- I've got a stock Ford F150 with BFG KO2 and made it 2 miles into Rocky Gap Road without a problem. Making it to the TH with factory clearance could be an issue, but it's possible to take off at LEAST 4-5 miles round trip in a stock vehicle, driving carefully. 2- the more "technical" portions of the hike (last half mile) feel really sketchy - worse than they really are. If you're uncomfortable outside of the crack on the excited face, you can crab your way up/down the crack slowly and safely. Total stats today: 12.1M, 3,562 elevation gain (parked truck 2mi. approx up Rocky Gap, to the arch - not summit), and 6h27m r/t. Good luck!

beautiful waterfall at the end. very hard to find the entrance. We have done this two years in a row and its one of our fav spots. We spent the whole day down there. There was no waterfall this year, but still a pool and gorgeous scenery. We did this with two kids, ages 5 and 7. They did great.

This is one of my favorite trails when I want to get in a short hike.

This hike was enjoyable, bring some friends and some good hiking shoes!

Close to Vegas, easy in and out. Only challenge is the heat.

This is a gem! Spring is the best time to visit as the falls are active and beautiful pools welcome tired tootsies. Early AM I found to be perfect for this trail. We returned a few weeks ago and the falls were but a trickle and the pools had dried.

Trail is difficult to follow at times. As you approach the end of the trail some climbing is required, but there was a small pool of water at the top.
