    Marieka Jackson reviewed Gold Strike Hot Spring Trail

    10 months ago

    I loved this hike, and its the one reason I don't hate the Vegas area. It was my introductory to the knowledge of what scrambling is and my declaration of loving it. Be prepared to jump, climb, lift, scurry, and/or slide yourself around, over, and between boulders. In other words, be somewhat in shape or you may be miserable. I don't understand the recommendation for hiking gloves. I'm not really sure why those exists unless its cold out. Build some callouses, get your hands dirty, feel the earth. But do bring lots of water! There's very minimal shade, so bring sunscreen and reapply often. Enjoy the drastic difference in water temperature where the hot spring stream meets the cold Colorado River!

    Marieka Jackson reviewed Dreamy Draw to Piestewa Peak

    A How Does One Get to the Mountain. The answer: Drive towards the mountain. Look, there's a parking lot. How Does One Get to the Trailhead? There's a path, lets take it. Oh! Look at that adorable cactus. Oh. Look at that shiny rock! A day of two 2nd cousins getting to know one another. Look for the mountain and head towards it. It'll be. good hike. If you enter from Dreamy Draw you won't see too many people until you get to the main trail for the summit. Oh, and you'll come across an abandoned structure of some sort with some decent graffiti. Though, its near by to the corner of that neighborhood right there, so you might run into some locals getting high or what not.

    This trail was part of a moment that changed my life. We rented bikes and rode into the park at 3am, hiked the first part of the trail in the dark, and waited until dawn to hike the dangerous part. We were the first on the summit for the day and had the place to ourselves for about 40-60min until the group from the first shuttle bus started to arrive. The change of energy was a level like I've never before experienced. Complete serenity to what felt like a crowded theme park. It turned me from a night person to an absurdly early morning person when it comes to my hiking. The trail itself is thus far the scariest I've ever done. Its definitely not one to be joking around on. Warning though, the bathrooms on the trail are constantly out of commission. Good luck with that!

    Marieka Jackson reviewed James Irvine to Fern Canyon to Clintonia to Miner's Ridge

    10 months ago

    Lovely long walk through redwoods to the beach and back. We saw otters at the very start and a couple of banana slugs throughout. Fern Canyon is absolutely gorgeous; keep walking until you hit the two (small) waterfalls before turning back to leave. Only disappointment was that I was hoping to exit the forest right onto the beach. Instead you have to walk out of the trail into the parking lot and then onto the beach. The latrine at the beach parking lot was one of the worst latrines I've ever been in. Also, there was a LOT of human waste along the trails. People, if you go to the bathroom I the woods, take you toilet paper with you! With that, don't do it inside the redwoods! People want to explore those and have a good time. They don't want to see or smell your poop when they walk into it.

    Marieka Jackson reviewed Chesler Park Viewpoint and Devil's Kitchen

    10 months ago

    The woman at the Visitor Center told us about this route saying that it was, in her opinion, one of the most beautiful ways out from the Chesler Park Viewpoint. We were not disappointed and were enthralled the whole time. Only thing about this route is that you have to walk 3.5m on the 4-wheeler road. She told us that she had not issued any permits for the road for the day, so we could go on it. It was wonderfully secluded although we did see a couple hikers entering the last mile or so as we were exiting at sunset. Little wildlife was seen, but we did see several coyote tracks and some scat. We played around a lot throughout the day, and with 3 liters of water (per person) we ran low/out the last mile or two.
