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 !

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.

Beautiful winter day hike. This is basically a straight hike uphill. Many people had trouble making the climb. Bring water and be prepared. This time of year was just a trickle, not really falls. I can imagine the fall is beautiful in the spring.

Absolutely beautiful.

Scenic hour, plus or minus, hike. On Nov. 21st. About midway up I had my head down and actually missed a switch back and ended off trail for about 10 mins; ops!
Fun.

Really long trail but totally worth it. You see the falls at the end and can chill in a huge cave! Too bad people tagged it up. It’s beautiful.

awesome

Just hiked the lower and upper bristlecone. Upper is awesome. Lower is a little boring. Upper had a slight dusting of snow. In 2016, last year it had over 12 feet of snow at this same time and was inaccessible.
Was informed by a mountain biker, if doing the bonanza trail, take personal protection because of mountain lions. It’s probably an over night hike.
Just a great hiking destination not far from Vegas.

One of the more popular trails in Mt. Charleston probably because of the name. If you make it up there in late spring or early summer there's a beautiful waterfall. Bring a jacket because it's all shaded at the falls. Definitely worth checking out. Unfortunately since this is one of the more popular trails it tends to be damaged from people taking short cuts off trail and leaving their trash. I have hiked this trail 3 or 4 times and been disappointed in it's upkeep. A lot of people on this trail do not have basic hiking etiquette so I'm sure it's hard to upkeep!

Nice views of the mountains, and a beautiful waterfall with cold water (in July) at the top. Beautiful pine scents. Intermediate hike on dirt trail, no rock climbing. Dog did great on the trail and enjoyed the water at the top.

We went November 25, 2017. The hike was awesome. Lots of switchbacks that help with the elevation climb. I'd say it's moderate due to elevation and there's a few tricky slippery spots. Views are amazing. The falls were just a trickle and just showed wet on the side of mountain. It would be cool to go back in the spring to see the full falls.

A peaceful and scenic trail. It is fairly steep in some areas but the switch backs make it manageable. The trail is pretty well marked. We went in November and it was a little chilly but felt great as we hiked up. The falls were just a little trickle when we got there but I have heard that the water flow is heavier in the spring and sometimes will be frozen. I was surprised to find the beautiful evergreens so close outside of Vegas (was about a 50 min drive from where we were staying).

a lot of switch backs , beautiful and the top

I made the mistake in trusting professional hikers as "this hike is easy"... was anything but. first your climbing a mountain using 15 switch steep backs. my son and I barely made it up the mountain. however i must say that the sight when we arrived was breathtaking. take water and light packs.

Nice trail. can be easy or moderate nearer the Falls. alot of fallen trees to sit & rest on. for all ages. beautiful senerie like being in Colorado.
