Easy to start off.

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.

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

Lots of Petroglyphs to see! Short trail but the sand makes it just challenging enough for someone on their first hike like me!

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.

amazing views over the valley.

easy short hike for kids and pets to see lots of amazing petroglyphs. The sand is hot for pets, be careful. We saw 4 big horn sheep!

beautiful scenery, but not well marked. We never found the falls. There are a few petroglyphs and a really pretty bridge. Did this hike with two kids ages 5 and 7. This was their first hiking experience. They did well.

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

Was easy and everything I expected. I would just not make the mistake at going at 11am. I caught that high noon sun and it was brutal. I would definitely recommend going in the early morning.

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.

Quick trip up the stairs to see some great petroglyphs. Good for adults and children.

Unfortunately it was too hot to finish the trail, but we did go about 0.3 miles in. The views are outstanding, and the scenary consistently is changing with each turn. We would love to go again on our next visit to NV.

Easy hike with beautiful end scenery

Moderate to easy hike, there are harder rock climbing sections that you can choose to tackle or take an alternate trail around. There was no water at the end when I went but if you keep hiking up another 5 minutes past the tank there’s a good view of the Las Vegas strip.

Easy out and back trail or you can start to the right and hike the loop trail to it.

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.

Easy hike with a great reward at the end. Beautiful natural formation. Worth the easy hike from the road.

Easy loop hike with some decent views. Nice place if you are in Vegas and want to get outdoors.

Easy but make sure to bring water !!!

Path definitely could use some better marking as it was difficult to find our way to the end. Bring some water as you are out in the heat with minimal to no shade

WOW!! Me fascinó hermoso lugar.

Un paseo muy hermoso me encantó.

Great view

Great hike!!! Great view through it & at the end!

Beautiful trail but it will kick you butt. Carried surface from sandy to rocky. This is a moderately difficult run run. Make sure you take water. Easy to follow and you won’t get lost.

Easy hike with lots of diversity. Slot canyon was nice and cool and a place to get relief from the sun.

Such a fun hike! It can get a little busy in the early afternoon, so I suggest getting to the trail a little bit early.

We are novice hikers. The first bit is basically scrambling down rocks. You need good footwear. But once you get down, it is great. The scenery is just gorgeous. It is worth the extra climbing in the beginning. The hike back up, if you do the loop, is much more gradual. If you start at the other end of the loop. you have to go up those rocks and that does not look like fun unless you are comfortable with that. The terrain is sandy for the first bit before rocks and after the steep climb down. Then it is more stable. Excellent hike with gorgeous scenery.
