Spring Mountain Ranch is located within the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, beneath the colorful cliffs of the magnificent Wilson Range. The many springs in these mountains provided water for Paiute Indians and later brought mountain men and early settlers to the area. This 520 acre oasis was developed into a combination working ranch and luxurious retreat by a string of owners who have given the area a long and colorful history. Past owners of the ranch included Chester Lauck of the comedy team "Lum & Abner," German actress Vera Krupp, and millionaire Howard Hughes.

Such a nice trail! Very easy and very flat with the smallest amount of climbing at the end. The pond was cool to see, too.

Only hiked out about a mile out before turning around. The terrain is rocky with larger rocks so you're looking at your feet the whole time. Didn't care for it. We went to First Trail and really enjoyed that one.

Really fun easy hike for the whole family. There is a hidden water pool that is pretty cool and worth walking down to.

Great trail for kids and pups! I carried my son in a front carrier and was able to complete the 3.6 mile hike. It’s NOT a loop so plan for 2-3 hours. Bring snacks and water.

It was beautiful!

Great trail for kids and my dog. Gets chilly in the shadow of the mountain but scenery is beautiful.

A nice afternoon hike. Not too much of an elevation change. Great if you are a bit out of shape. It’s fun taking the tour of the old ranch house too!!

Beautiful trail, kid and dog friendly. great for all ages, younger children may need a little help in areas. You do cross a stream in the middle and there is also a halfway mark if You only want to do a 1mile instead of 2miles. The old houses, barns and cows are fun to look at towards the end of the trail.

What a great hike! Although I could never quite figure out when the trail ended, but exploring was great. At the “fork” in the path, go right. When you get to the first green tree that looks out of place, turn 90 degrees and venture down to the waterfall! It rained the day before so there was actually water!

we went in the sprong/summer when it hasn't rained in a while and the creek was pretty much dry. even with the creek I dont think it would be anything exciting

Highly trafficked but very fun and great for dogs.

I enjoyed it and it was a great first hole with my dogs. My dogs (10) are older and they did great! Bummed no water was flowing but there was a small part of the creek that still had water and my Lab had a great time in it!

This is definitely one of my favorite trails to do with my kids. It usually takes about 3 hours with the kids (4 & 6). It is fairly easy to stay on the trail until you get towards the end. There is a nice little creek filled with frogs that is a ton of fun for the kids. I would strongly recommend this trail for all families visiting red rock.

No water or flowers (early November) and easy to confuse the trails, but well worth the cost to enter ($9 for non-residents, $7 for Nevadans). Very pretty scenery and fairly easy, though I would say easy-moderate due to some moderate incline/decline spots

Nice easy relaxing hike. Great springtime flower hike.

Beginning easy, as you get closer to the canyon the trail becomes more of a scramble with the path becoming less and less clear. No waterfall this time of year that we could find. total hike time 2.5 hours. We arrived at 5pm and the entire hike was nicely shaded.
