Nice trail with lots of shade. During summer would recommend this for a morning hike.

Nice easy hike. Good for people who are trail runners. The trail can have high traffic, since it's a popular one.

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.

Great hike. moderately challenging, as I had to rest three or four times at the switchbacks. pack plenty of water. amazing view at the end.

Unbearingly hot when we hiked, but amazing to see the salt flats. It looked like it rained recently or got worn out when we hiked. Had to walk far into the flats to see the honeycomb looking structures. Must see in the park!

The beginning of the trail is very bad with a bunch of loose gravel and trash. And yes that is part of the trail bc there is no other way to get to the decent single track that starts the ascent. It ruined the experience for me. Apart from that I did like the single track and it provided some good exercise. Not sure I’d recommend this as a trail run though.

My first hike and it was magical! Me and my 2 friends went past the waterfall to a cave above it and could see the entire valley! I would recommend this to anyone.

Great summer hike in Vegas area

I live minutes away so I’ve gotten a chance to hike this trail numerous times. I love it. It’s not too close to the city, but not too far either. You get an amazing view of Las Vegas and it’s a fairly easy trail. There’s a trail that faces the city, which is a more inclined trail and will have you out of breathe for a minute. But not anything too bad. The trail on the other side is perfect if you want an easy and fast trail. There is also the actually Lone Mountain Park which is right there. It’s a nice park, not too crowded, has a basketball courts, playgrounds, and a large grass area and walking/biking trail. I absolutely love Lone Mountain.

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.

I did this hike with my husband and our labrador. Its a lovely moderate hike. I there are some areas (with the switchbacks) that it is hard to see the trail and pretty rocky, but you will not get lost. The falls are a beautiful spot to rest and enjoy the view.

Trail started off kinda boring, but once you get up to the boulders that you have to scramble up and get up the rope ladder, the trail was awesome. We hiked all the way to the stream up top. Great hike, very surprised. We ended up going over 1 mike further than where the trail map ended.

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.

I did this hike with my almost two year old. I carried her some of the way. Up by the waterfall it gets a little tricky with a little one as I didn’t want her to fall or me fall while helping her. It was a great hike though. I would do it again.

Súper súper nice walk. For my fiancé and I

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

Nice little huff if wearing a babe. Would recommend using trekking poles if you’re wearing a kid carrier as there are a lot of loose rocks and can be a little treacherous on the way down.

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.

This was an interesting hike for me because there are no blazes to follow. I made it just about 2mi shy of the summit before having to turn back because of lightning and hail. The views on the way up made up for me bailing though. There are a few water caches scattered around in case you run low, but make sure you carry at least 3L. Next I come back I might add on the South Loop as well.

Great exercise. I recommend going in the morning so the switchbacks are in the shade.

Interesting spot to visit. You don't really need to hike very far out to appreciate how hot and inhospitable it is around here.

A great view that is definitely worth the drive up here. You can chose how far you want to hike and in what direction, or if you're feeling lazy, you don't need to hike anywhere at all and just enjoy the view from the parking lot. Either way, this is a great spot to start your visit of Death Valley if you are coming from the Death Valley Junction. Also, unlike the valley floor, the temperatures are almost bearable up here.

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

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

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.

This is a relatively easy and very gorgeous hike. The first 2/3 is pretty flat, and goes through a Joshua Tree forest. The last part is on a moderately steep incline and takes you up to a great view of the Cima Dome. The view at the top is definitely worth the work to get there! If you have a limited amount of time in MNP this is a great hike for the list-easy to get to, pretty quick (a couple hours tops), and fantastic scenery

Excellent trail if you’re just starting back hiking. Lovely views and plenty of shade spots. Good for dogs as well. Would definitely do this again!

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.
