Great views and usually there aren’t many people on it :)

Insanely tough trail with minimum switchbacks but the view at the end is worth it. If you go all the way to the top behind the communication tower, you can see Lake Mead, Lake Las Vegas, Mt. Charleson, Red Rock, and beyond. Bring lots of water and don't go on a super hot day.

Great hike, dog friendly, bring plenty of water, wear hiking shoes, steep terrain, loose rocks, no shade so go early, if you make it to the antennas the view is beautiful!!

It was a tough, steep, and rocky climb. The view at the top is awesome. There is no shade, so bring water.

Absolutely amazing hike, very hard work for a very rewarding view you cannot get anywhere else!

This trail is tough but don’t let that discourage you. It was exhausting because it is really steep. The trail has a lot of loose rocks which makes descending hard because I kept twisting my ankles so I can’t stress enough to bring shoes that support you ankles or ankle wraps. The most rewarding part is the beautiful view at the top. It outweighs the struggle. I went last year and plan on returning this year.

Good trail. Don’t stop, the end is worth the view

use a hiking stick, and bring water. there is no shade

Trail is no joke. But my 37 year old, somewhat in shape self managed. Not many people out. Saw one couple coming down while I was headed up at 10:30. Another couple bailed. On my way back, a few more making the start.

The hike is BORING as most everyone said. Some interesting cacti, etc, but not much else. The whole point is the view. And it's totally worth it.

This trail is no joke. Brace yourself, this is a very strenuous hike. however well worth it because the end view is amazing.

Great trail! There are 2 peaks, each with switchbacks near the top. Very steep grade with loose rocks....not a great trail for kids. I would say 2 hours up (then down and up again) with about 1 hour back is the fast pace.

Did this mountain 3 Times already in the last 2 months. The first time was a bit strenuous,but nothing I can't handle. The 3rd time I did it,I did it completely in 2 hours round trip. Has some steep inclines especially around the switch backs. Once you make it all the way up the first set of switch backs, you will notice that you are only half way. Then you must descend and ascend to another mountain which is the one you have to get to. It can be deceving but just keep going. I've your up the second mountain and Past the second set of switch backs, you are finally there. You have the option to go up to the first Hill where the first set of antennas are, or you can walk past the second set of antennas and up and find the ammo box where you can sign in. You can see the whole valley and Mead from up there.

Very strenuous, steep, rocky. But fun!!

Its hard the first time but you get use to it go slow while walking back down loose rock.

Magnificent views from the top. This trail is uphill both ways. Be prepared for steep inclines with lose rock the whole way. Good hiking shoes are a must!

Great view. Difficult decent with the loose rocks!

This was a very tough hike that I did with my 7 year old son. It took us 1 hour 15 min to ascend and 45 min to descend. My legs were sore for days due to the extreme incline but the outlook is definitely worth it at the end.

As other have commented the hike is strenuous - it took us about 2hours to arrive at the top and 1h to get back to the parking lot.

The false summit is a bit deceiving, but the view at the end is worth it!

5 stars for the hike. Minus 1 star for the area where you park your car. Shotgun shells littered on the floor and a tweaker chillin on my car on my way back down.

The hike is definitely not for beginners and or anyone who is not prepared. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT this hike if you are not prepared. I arrived at around 9 am with one car parked. I met this fellow as i reached the summit and he was preparing to hike back to his car. Two other cars arrived after me. One with a group of teenagers and one with two older folks. The group of teenagers did not bring enough supplies and were ill prepared. They made the conscious decision to not do this hike and they left. The two elder gentleman were nice as i talked to them for a few minutes telling me they wanted to get back in shape. Neither of them had water. From i what i saw they barely made the first ascent and turned around.
As others say, the incline is no joke and walking back to your car is just as bad.
Once you summit every aching part of your body will thank you. You get treated to a beautiful 360 degree view of las vegas.

I didn't hike up to that mountain. But why did I saw the U.S Marines hiking up to that mountain. They all drove up on the Humvees and they hike up to get a scope of me and the city of Las Vegas. I can see a flare reflection off one of their scope. I stared directly at 8 of them . I'm not a high value target and I have no guns. What's the answer to all of this?

Frenchman was awesome. Today was my first time doing this hike. Definitely a lung and leg burner and I enjoyed every minute of it. The key is to do 30 to 45 second brakes and after 7 to 10 minutes of climbing. Just at 30 seconds makes a huge difference. don't let that view of the true Peak scare you from the false peak. Finish strong and enjoy the view!!

Did this twice - both in February. Bring lots of water and take your time, especially on the stretch down from the top. It took me longer to get down than go up!

Very strenuous trail. If you would like a workout for your whole body this is it!!! I'd definitely do this again just because I Iove the view of the city!!!

This trail is difficult! I suggest you be in top shape or near excellent shape. The incline is no joke & walking back down it hard as well. The view is amazing but definitely is tough!

Beautiful but difficult. Very steep with loose rock. You have to watch every step you take so you down slide on the rocks. The views are amazing. Take walking stick to help with the hike down. I would have given it 5 stars except for all the loose rocks that make the trial somewhat annoying because you have to keep looking down instead of at the beautiful scenery.
