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!

First ascent on Frenchmen. Killer workout! Enjoyed the grind.

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 hike deserve it rating! 3 steep steep hills to climb to get to top hands down steepest trail I've tried in Las Vegas area

Great View Of The Valley But Very Challenging! Definitely Took Me More Then A Couple Hours.

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!
