Great trail. Starts off with clear and wide path. Slight incline at the start but very comfortable with spectacular surroundings of mountains and Pine Trees. The start is an easy laid out path and then it curves to the right where the intensity of the hike picks up with good incline and elevation picking up. Trail is in good shape but you have to be careful as there are slippery rocks and loose rocks when reaching the part that goes up the side of the mountain. The caves and waterfall (during spring when the ice melts) is spectacular with incredible open views of the surrounding mountains. We did this hike with our 5 year old who is use to doing 3 mile hikes.

leg work out for sure. awesome hike.

Did this hike yesterday 4/2/18. Was able to only get to about 1.5miles before the summit. There is still too much snow. For a solid mile I was following old footsteps through the snow until they stopped and there was no longer a trail to follow. Amazingly beautiful hike though! Can’t wait to complete it in a month or two.

Not much to see on the way but cool rock at the end

A decent trail near Mary Jane Falls trail. The beginning of the trail is a easily followed (though constantly ascending) gravel path with little overhead shade and conifer trees. Push past this part and you’ll be rewarded with great views at the top. Overall, not a trail I would take again unless I was going to converge with another trail at the peak.

Great trail with excellent view of the falls; which are still partially frozen as of today. The hike up is not difficult if you are in decent shape. There are a few switchbacks and you can easily bypass them and make the assent a little more interesting. By skipping a few I made the trip up in about 30 minutes.

Scenic the whole way. The frozen falls were something special.

Beautiful view.

Late review as this is for March 4, 2018. The falls were frozen solid and it was an amazing sight to see.

Yes, Yes, and more yes. I just love this trail. I can't say why this one is so great other than it just has great views, a slight challenge based on the incline (not hard just a steady incline). The switchbacks are cool with some having steps. The trail is well kept and offers fantastic views at the top as well as along the route. A dog-friendly trail for sure.
This trail can be one for most everyone, including kids. Be aware, it is uphill most of the way so you will want to be prepared for the little, little ones getting slowed down.
Once you are at the top you are going to love the views.
The terrain is generally easy with dirt and small rocks. There are a couple of parts where the trail thins and you traverse close to the edge of the hill. I say this for those with little ones. All in all, this is a great hike for a day hike. A couple of hours there and back. Bring plenty of water. You are still in a desert climate, please. I see too many people hiking around Vegas without water.

I couldn’t do this hike unfortunately- upon arrival the cathedral rock picnic area is closed for the season & that’s where you’re supposed to start. Just a heads up!

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

Great hike with some cool caves

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

Easy. Not much to see

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.

Long but worth everything

I haven't done this hike, but can you camp on the trail?

Went up snowing. Totally stunning experience. Snow made the trail very slippery at times, and was difficult to follow on the way down with the trail totally covered in slow. Not a long hike, but almost all uphill.

The falls were almost completely frozen, which made for a truly surreal experience.

This was a very tough hike. Very long distances so make sure you are in shape if you want to do this hike. Also , wear the right clothes and make sure to pack alot of food and water! The scene is gorgeous and makes it worth it !

Great trail to bring visitors. Not too hard. Great scenery.

Amazing trail! The first half is all gravel and very level. The second half is less level, but nothing too crazy. The canyon is great. The end of trail ends with very steep rock face. I was told it goes on for a good while, but it's a lot of scrambling and was just too steep for me and my dog. I definitely will be going back to try and go further up.

awsome and challenging.

A nice trail that will get your heart rate going on the climb. There was plenty of snow on the trail that added to the challenge and enjoyment. the falls where just tricking, but still a great view.

Great trail! A little slippery in some places and you gotta watch your step near the top, but otherwise very well maintained. Very busy trail and everyone is friendly. Lots of dogs! The falls were flowing great with a little bit of ice still left.

Love this trail. Place is well kept. Kids and pet friendly. There was still water that can be seen on the end of the trail. Saw birds, chipmunks and even an eagle at this area. Will go again.

fantastic trail, be prepared for blustery winds. bring your hiking poles to help with your footing on the loose scree

Nice out and back trail.
