This is a fine hike, nothing spectacular, except for the view near the end of the trail. OK for families with kids.

Beautiful trail!! Pretty easy but windy.

Beautiful views at the top. Not very difficult if you use common sense.

A great trail that has a view making it worth it. in the early spring you might see some water in the tank itself.

cool stop on our way out

worth the short hike. beautiful

I never thought of myself as someone who would climb up and over rocks. For the most part we followed footprints when it was unclear where the trail was. I think we took the hard way a good bit, but we had fun and it is great view all the way to the top. We were not disappointed.

This was a great hike! We went in late November, so there was ABSOLUTELY no one on the trail. It’s mostly downhill on the way down, so it’s quite the climb coming up, but totally worth it! The beach and the house at the bottom was beautiful and a great place to rest. Highly recommend!

Great trail, little hard to know which way to go up and down the rocks but amazing, fun & gorgeous!

Straightforward going up, but a little tricky in the descent. As you go up, keep a sense as to the route you took, as when descending it is possible to lose perspective as to the "best" way down! Such a wonderful hike, though!

This was my favorite hike of the trip. Not particularly busy (though it was a Monday) and it was so peaceful. It was pretty easy too. The trailhead is in a weird place and there isn't a whole lot of signage, but the trail is really big and easy to follow. My favorite part was the little trails everywhere that shot you out into different parts of the main trail!

Great out and back trail. Parking is in a small lot and also a turnout beside a gate on the main road. Both places join the main trail.
Good quality path all the way down to the sandy beaches. Great for dogs. Stunning views.
Return walk is all uphill but not difficult.

Great trail down to the sand beaches with crystal water. Very easy and has a perfect length. Our dog also enjoyed it a lot off leash.

Stay to the left at the end and keep climbing, excellent views of the strip.

I’ve done this hike almost a dozen times, it’s my favorite to bring friends to when they come visit Vegas. The rock scrambling and lack of clear path makes it very dynamic, and the views both during and at the very end are just amazing. There’s a rock I just lay down on at the very end, letting me cloud gaze while getting the best view of the city. Best trail honestly.

Did the loop trail instead. Definitely recommend it over this super short one. Picturesque and fun.

Not too challenging! Beautiful views!

5 star hike, perfect hike to go with your family or amateurs hikers. Nice views at the end of the trail.

Neat trial heavily traveled. Just about right for my wife and I. My 50th birthday and made it to the top in 1 hour. Great view of Vegas!

A short hike but a beautiful view. It was very hot the day we went but the crowds weren’t bad.

Went through this trail head today at about 10 o’clock. The parking lot was already pretty crowded and there were plenty of hikers on the trail on the way up to the tanks just take your time and you’ll have an amazing view at the end. Plenty of spaces for you to sit and relax and enjoy the view before you head back. I was even able to see a tarantula crossing the path in front of me which was a bonus.
A Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks.

I really liked this trail. Cathedral Gorge is a really unique place and this loop trail is the best way to see it. Took me a little bit less than 2 hours to hike it and I stopped frequently to take photos. It’s a very easy hike and the views are worth it. Wear sunblock if it’s warm out because there is no shade whatsoever on this trail. Also, most of the hike is in the washes that run through the gorge so wear shoes you won’t mind getting really muddy. The scenery is not on a huge scale, but it’s kind of refreshing to be able to do something on a smaller scale.
