Simply awesome to climb. Views were amazing however, Vegas was a bit smogged over but that did not take away from the experience.

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.

Absolutely gorgeous. We got deviated just a bit from the trail a couple of times but it ended up actually being 7.92 miles instead. The climb up thru the canyon took awhile but the views were amazing and loved the pain of the upward climb.

Very easy hike and has water in the spring time. My boys (7 and 5) had a blast on this one.

amazing views over the valley.

This is a great option for an evening hike now that the weather is warming up. Never too busy, a nice trail that isn't too tough but is variable enough to be interesting. Climbing to the top of the knoll gives a surprisingly good view for such a little hill. Doing the loop and going around the back of the knoll is great, green and cool and with a little bit of water in the stream from the recent rains. Definitely definitely recommend for a nice peaceful hike.

Was easy and everything I expected. I would just not make the mistake at going at 11am. I caught that high noon sun and it was brutal. I would definitely recommend going in the early morning.

When you cross over the rocks, the trail goes to the left fairly soon after that. If you get to the pink ribbon you are above the trail. I thought I read somewhere a thank you for the ribbon so I followed that as our guide. We ended up hiking up and down the hills for 3 hours before finally connecting back with the actual trail Never made it to the springs. If you find the actual trail, the hike isn't too bad. But if you get off the trail, it gets very hard. The views were beautiful though.

Nice hike for a beginner. shaded, lots of plants and lovely butterflies around the water areas. There is a trickling waterfall and pool of water at the end.

Fantastic trail. A little harder then described but well worth it despite the 102°F weather. Just stay hydrated!

Excellent view of Las Vegas right before sunset. You’re in the canyon almost the entire way.

Easy hike with beautiful end scenery

Moderate to easy hike, there are harder rock climbing sections that you can choose to tackle or take an alternate trail around. There was no water at the end when I went but if you keep hiking up another 5 minutes past the tank there’s a good view of the Las Vegas strip.

Easy out and back trail or you can start to the right and hike the loop trail to it.

Probably would have been more enjoyable had I not been ambushed by a swarm of homeless people and if everywhere I looked there weren’t broken glass bottles and trash on the ground. A lot of the trail has been burnt so it’s mostly dead bushes but the water was cool to see. There was also lots of wildlife on this trail. Started out as a morning walk and turned into a morning run because of how unsafe I felt there and wanted to get out ASAP.

We went on this trail yesterday close to 4pm. It was just the right length for my 10yr old and 6 yr old. We also brought along our 2 yr old. She was in the carrier on the way and walked the way back without much difficulty. Lots of shade. The kids really enjoyed the hike but were a little disappointed/ underwhelmed with the waterfall but we’re happy we could sit and have a snack by it before heading back to the car. We also picked up some of the trash but on one wanted to pick up the mangled diaper :-[ the older kids wanted to do another hike when it’s was done so it didn’t completely exhaust them.

We take our dog, Midnight here for walks when it is nice & cool outside

Awesome short trail with a steady incline. To get to the trail, park in the upper parking lot and just follow the unmarked trail at the end that runs parallel to the road. As others have posted, the waterfall area is covered in graffiti. There are plenty of flowers on the way though and today threre are DOZENS of Spring Mountains Icarioides Blue. I thought they were the Mt. Charleston Blue, but realized they weren't after taking a closer look at my pictures. I saw more than a few Western Tiger Swallowtail and Carole's Silverspot, and one Nevada Admiral.

It was a great short hike uphill, not too bad. For someone out of shape like me it’s a decent workout. But for those used to hiking and in good shape, this is an easy hike/walk. It’s so nice to walk through the trees and smell the pine. Lots of butterflies on the trail, especially closer to the water. There’s a great little waterfall at the end. Too bad there was graffiti galore on the canyon walls by the waterfall. Otherwise, very nice.

Easy but make sure to bring water !!!

Great view

Good trial just a little hard to find the start. Took about 2.5 hrs with my 4 yr old and 2 yr old. They had a hard time on the incline over the smooth rocks. So they piggy back rode to the end of the trial. Stinks about the graffiti and trash. One thing that redeemed the experience is we ran into deer foraging and pairs of hummingbirds flying over head.
Good for older kids; unless using a carrier for younger ones.

Great hike!!! Great view through it & at the end!

Beautiful trail but it will kick you butt. Carried surface from sandy to rocky. This is a moderately difficult run run. Make sure you take water. Easy to follow and you won’t get lost.

Such a fun hike! It can get a little busy in the early afternoon, so I suggest getting to the trail a little bit early.
