Such an amazing hike! The views were incredible until the clouds moved in about halfway up, so I didn't get to really experience the view from the top. But I'll definitely be coming back on clearer day.

Seven of us set out on our first hike of the season. We were a little concerned about a seven mile trek as our first outing, but the trail proved to be beautiful and not overly taxing. It was the type of trail that makes you want to come back for more.

The layered colors were amazing. So distinct. The landscape ranged from soft, rolling hills to jagged peaks, which were as sharp as lava rock. The winds were wicked, but interestingly always at our back.

Our group (age range 45 to 60) really loved this trail.

Was a little crazy watch for falling ice pretty great day all round though

Really fun hike, some rock scrambling and great views at the end!

Overlook for Fire Canyon is breathtaking.

Really cool canyon with petroglyphs.

Did Ice Box Canyon with my 21 y/o son. I'm 61 y/o. The guide given out at the visitors center rated this as a strenuous hike and AllTrails has it listed as moderate. It is not moderate at all. Very beautiful. After reaching the end and returning down we wandered to the right of the trail and ended up in a ravine. We needed to scale the wall of rocks to return to the trail. I'm very happy that I was able to complete this trail as most of my hiking is in Ohio. My right knee reminded me that this was a tough one.

Amazing trail! Very steep but the views are worth it. The clouds moved in about halfway up unfortunately and while it was fun to hold in the clouds, the view from the top was just grey in every direction. I'll definitely be coming back in the Spring!

We really enjoyed this challenging hike today. We turned around about 3/4 of the way to the waterfall at the end due to the increased difficulty of the bouldering. We had seen so much beauty already that we were full and didn’t need to press on. The little pools of water and stream along with endless beautiful rocks of all colors and patterns and the diversity of the plant life made this hike one of our favorites so far.
When you are on the trail, you will come to a big rock triangle in the dirt and there are three ways to go. This is where we went left to the riverbed and then took a right at the riverbed and followed it out and back for the reminder of the hike. This will take you to the pools of water. Be careful coming back. We almost missed the left out of the riverbed to get back onto the main trail.

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

A must see place in the park.

The mountains besides the trail are so beautiful. I am sorry I didn't hike the whole trail.

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

Joshua Trees from the get go are amazing and the views from the top are unbelievable.

More of a Nice easy walk more than a hike. I am new to hiking and this was effortless for me. Great way to enjoy nature without needing to put in a lot of physical strength.

This area is worth the time it takes to see. Hiked a little ways out past the rest of the people there. The pattern made by the Salt and the view of the entire valley is awesome. On your way back to the car be sure to find the sea level sign perched high above the road in the rock.

Beautiful views and more on the easier side.

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

It’s definitely not 5 miles. To the end of the trail was maybe a mile and a half out if that. The sign even says 2.4 round trip. It’s pretty but March 10th we saw a trickle and a small pond.

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.

A very nice walk

Fine, if you like pure desert hikes. Spends a little too much time along the highway , and is mainly a mountain biking trail.

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

Easy. Not much to see

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.
