beautiful waterfall at the end. very hard to find the entrance. We have done this two years in a row and its one of our fav spots. We spent the whole day down there. There was no waterfall this year, but still a pool and gorgeous scenery. We did this with two kids, ages 5 and 7. They did great.

Close to Vegas, easy in and out. Only challenge is the heat.

Beautiful scenery and such a refreshing hike!!

Great beginner hike. Beautiful scenery

Great hike with the kids! Dog loved swimming and playing too.

One of my favorite trails to hike in the area. It's easy, stress free, and absolutely beautiful. I've seen burros, snakes (non venomous), lizards, hawks, caterpillars, rabbits, etc. When the spring is full, it's a great place for dogs and kids to splash around. When it isn't, it's a great place to just sit and relax.

Great hike and I loved there was a “waterfall”. Today’s weather was a perfect 80 degrees. Nice to be back home. Vegas Strong

Great little hike. Dog friendly. You will find some water at the end of the trail. Sometimes there is a waterfall!!!

As of January 2018 it is now $10 to enter the park. No discount for Nevada residents.
This is a wonderful trail, a bit muddy in places due to the overnight rain but still very passable. A little elevation gain and the need to watch your footing due to rocks on the trail but otherwise an easy stroll with fantastic rocky mountain views.

Love to take the dogs here to cool off in the water. Keep on leash at all times (it’s the law) for safety of your pup and other pups.
Easy hike for the whole family

lots of fun! but not in spring mountain ranch like stated. We had a great time but there was no waterfall today. Still amazing to see.

We did a guided night hike and it was awesome.

Trail was nice, but kind of hard to find the waterfall.

Nice hike for everyone. Take the dogs here a lot.

Beautiful views of red rock and the hidden waterfall is surrounded by large boulders so very isolated and cool on a hot day!

More of a Nice easy walk more than a hike. I am new to hiking and this was effortless for me. Great way to enjoy nature without needing to put in a lot of physical strength.

Great hike thru the beginning of the canyon!

fairly easy trail with a lot of great views of waterfalls and wild life.

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!
