Lots of scrambling over boulders but most obstacles had a way around them. It was cold and windy wear layers. Beautiful area.

Some bouldering. Hard to follow at times. Beautiful country and spectacular view of Las Vegas at the end.

Great hike with some cool caves

Not much to see, but an enjoyable hike if you're looking to get some exercise.

There are many sandstones and red rocks with various shapes along the trail. You can see the whole Las Vegas at the top.

Very scenic. Some scrambling over big rocks. At times hard to determine where the trail is but you can’t really get lost. Great view of Vegas at the end. Wear good hiking shoes for gripping the rocks.

very beautiful, and beautiful sight seeing area and it is not hard at all

My Garmin had the distance a little shy of 6-miles,taking the north loop trail (as shown) up to the Raintree. Pretty solid 1,900-foot elevation change on the ascent from the parking lot at the north loop trail at 158. The elevation gets to just shy of 10,000 feet so will get to you on this steady climb. We hiked in early March so there was still some significant snow on the trail and micro-spikes and poles were needed. We had a great time and some of the views were tremendous.

Wonderful. Very windy day but was well worth the view at the end of the LV strip.

Always a lovely trail, easy to follow and straight-forward. It's still cold enough to freeze the falls, so it was a spectacular column of ice.

Great trail for a quick hike! Dog friendly and great trail to start your kiddos on before moving on to longer / more difficult hikes.

Excellent trail that intersects with a few other trails in the area. the trails are not very intersections aren't marked, so keep your map out to make sure you stay on the right trail. There's a lot of green behind Mount Wilson and it's all beautiful. This trail is also outside of the Scenic Loop, there's a parking lot right at the start of trail so there's no fee.

Best hike EVER!! Beautiful view! Worth the hike!

Very beautiful trail. The spring was disappointing.

great hike and beautiful scenery. make sure to wear good shoes as you do some rock climbing. we went when there was not much traffic so the hike was enjoyable. I would suggest taking this hike early as it could get crowded.

Went up snowing. Totally stunning experience. Snow made the trail very slippery at times, and was difficult to follow on the way down with the trail totally covered in slow. Not a long hike, but almost all uphill.

The falls were almost completely frozen, which made for a truly surreal experience.

nice hike with beautiful views and very few people

this is a very easy trail, but the views make it a must-see

you can go in So many directions. you will find great views and and meet great people along the way.

This was a wonderful side trip away from the Vegas Strip. The temperature was perfect for a nice hike in late January. Easy parking and access to the trail. Definitely wear some good, non-slip hiking shoes. Part of the trail is very sandy and the other part you'll do some light rock scrambling. My shoes became slippery from the sand and while walking on the rocks I slipped and landed on my caboose which resulted in a very colorful bruise.

Came to trail run, ended up hiking my way through the brutal midway elevation gain.
You start this hike thinking you can go all day, only to find the slippery, serious elevation through the mid-point. Everyone talks about losing your way and I agree that it can be easy to stray (I found many people struggling their way up while I was heading down). That being said there are plenty of trail markings which are predominantly spray painted white or teal dots along the path. If the trail is obvious, find your way. If not, look for dots. In any case this is a summit so you should always be walking up or down to get to where you're going. Does it suck, yes. Is it worth it, big time. Have fun and be safe!

Be prepared for a little light scrambling. Shoes with grip are a must and having basic scrambling skills would help. I think this trail would have been more fun early in the morning when there are less people. The noise can get a little hectic and it begins to feel like your at an amusement park. Other than that, it was a beautiful trail with great views at the end. There is a loop trail that encircles the calico hills that might be of interest to someone who would like an extended version of this trail.

Terrific hike and great views of Vegas and the Spring Mts from the top. I'm 62, in good, not great, shape and managed it in about 3+1/2 hrs (120 min up, 10 min at top, 70 min down). I got conflicting info on the various pathways going up to the intermediate saddle which is to the left of the peak itself. IMHO it's best to stick to the main path, which heads up a spur to the left of the most visible runoff gully which leads nearly straight up to that saddle. Blue paint marks on stones will guide you starting about 2/3 the way up to the saddle. White paint spots and arrows serve as a guide from the saddle up to the peak, with one split marked EASY vs HARD in white paint. I chose EASY :) Many people will have to scramble up in a few places - nothing major. I found it very enjoyable in February - would be more difficult in July- August.

Fun hike. Lots of scrambling.

This is a challenging hike, not for the faint of heart. There are steep areas and switchbacks, and the elevation kinda started to kick my butt. But, it was worth it. The tree was magnificent and I was never bored.
