Really beautiful hike, highly recommend. Check out my full guide on Hikingguy com.

Great hike, but for me it was more strenuous than moderate. The last half mile is a steep climb. The pour-off had just a little water coming down it. Great photography spot! Highlight though was seeing a huge black bear going up and then again coming down.

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

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.

Very good challenge!

Beautiful area. Trails are easy to get off course though. Second time we have done this and not exactly finished it because we got off course.

Very fun with the fresh snow! Microspikes/yaktrax definitely not required at this point, but you might find they come in handy near the end. The seasonal spring at the end is frozen over currently but it's a fun short hike.

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.

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

Great scenery with several rock scramble challenges. Went around counter-clockwise. Passed numerous groups of rock climbers on the east end. On the north side, rock scrambles occur when the wash narrows down to a pinch. Look for tread wear to stay on the trail! The “twisted” sandstone is incredible here. Watch for the green TRAIL sign on the left then climb the sandstone slope toward the saddle; watch for cairns marking the way up. When back on the gavel trail, go right at the “T” to continue the climb to the saddle. The canyon views are great. Descend the steep trail to get back to the parking lot. Took about 2 hours.

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 a very easy walk on a well marked trail. I would recommend this hike for beginners or possibly the elderly. If I was camping at the camp site I would walk this trail. Otherwise there are better destination trails in the area.

It’s easy to get off trail. We got off trail for most of the hike, especially when we climbed up the canyon. I’m not sure where the end is, I think we got there (we climbed until we couldn’t climb anymore without injuring ourselves lol)

My dog and 6 year old were able to climb through with ease (and FUN!), but I would recommend this trail for more nimble-bodied creatures.

It was REALLY cold (November 28), so I suggest to wear long sleeves, full pants and something on your ears.

Very incredible views! Definitely worth it.

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.

Not too challenging! Beautiful views!

Starts out as a fairly easy trail, but toward the end of the trail there are a lot of off-shoots that can cause minor confusion. Plenty of shade, and lower elevation than other trails in the area.

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

Lots of people. Trail not greatly marked. Doesn’t really have an “end” to the trail. Saw rock climbers which was fun. Would recommend.

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!

It’s full of scrambling once you get in the canyon. Not the best for trail running but I’d do it again if I wanted that type of vibe.

Loved it. Went with an inexperienced friend and she had a blast. Great views towards the end of the trail and plenty of places to stop and grab some nice photos. There are a few places towards the end where kids or pets may have a few issues climbing some boulders but for adults it was awesome!
