We really enjoyed this one. Awesome views and if you keep going left past the Arch itself it's a gorgeous overview of the River. Be careful if you have a dog, our dog goes hiking a lot and his paws got cut up walking the long long wash and we had to carry him back.

Absolutely stunning hike. Easy to follow in most places; some washes look like the trail so my gps helped out a bit. I’ve lived in Vegas a while and would recommend this to anyone who wants to see what the desert really has to offer. Very moderate. Sandy in the beginning, rocky toward the end.

Trail not marked and no gps available. Backtracked and found it. Between moderate and hard. Look at the arch but definitely proceed 1/2 mile to outlook. Spectacular!!! Loved it!! Take lots of water - hot on return trip!!!

Super fun hike! Lots of bang for your buck; not strenuous and all sorts of interesting things along the trail. You walk right past a WWII era magnesium mine and Liberty Bell Arch, which is grand. The overlook beyond the arch should not be skipped, as it gives you a truly amazing view of the Colorado down about 1000 feet. No shade at all so be prepared even on mildly warm and sunny days. The app/your preferred navigation device is handy, as there are a few intersecting trails.

Fantastic Hike! Go all the way to the top for the awesome views. Worthwhile hike. Will do this one again. Perfect day to do it!

Great, great hike with varied scenery and a FANTASTIC payoff at the end (Don't stop at the arch! The overlook is absolutely stunning.) Be alert about one mile in, since the trail's turnoff to the right isn't terribly well-marked.

go to the river overlook !

A really great hike with stunning views of the river when you get to the top (well past the arch). Not overly difficult since it was only 60 degrees. Took about two hours to complete. Will definitely do again and again.

Had an amazing morning hiking through the trails here. There were beautiful views of the river and the contrast of colors in the mountains and boulders are just gorgeous.

Early morning hike. Plenty of parking at the trailhead. I had the whole place to myself this morning. The trail to liberty bell is on the right side of the wash about 3/4 mile from the start. It’s easy to miss the small sign.

We really enjoyed this hike, once we got on the right trail. Be sure to follow the wash for a mile, and then there will (finally) be a sign to the arch. If you start going uphill in the first mile, you need to backtrack...as we did. The arch and overlook are very worth the hike!!

Great hike but lack of signage and no gps signal so wound up on Arizona Hotsprings Trail instead of Liberty Bell Arch. NP cuz it was awesome and a bit technical. Descended way down into a canyon and back up. Beautiful desert scenery. Will do again.

The Liberty Bell Arch hike is one of my favorites. It's not a tough hike, but it does have its challenges. There is absolutely no shade. The sun will kick your buttocks if choose to do this hike after 12 PM. In fact, this hike is closed during the summer due to the extreme temperatures. The trail is visible on 95% of this hike. Some spots are not as clearly defined. My suggestion is to review the map located near the parking lot or go off memory if you've done the hike before. There's also a small sign on the hike that points in the direction of the Liberty Bell Arch. This sign is a little less tha. Look out for it since it can be easily missed. The hike is 2 miles from the parking lot to the Liberty Bell Arch and another .60 miles to the Colorado River overlook. Overall, this is another great hike not too far from Sin City. TIP #1: Location - Take the first left after the Hoover Dam is you're heading west on the freeway TIP #2: Follow the trail into the wash. A little less than a mile from the parking lot is where you turn right towards Liberty Bell Arch. There's also a sign and can easily be overlooked if you're not paying attention. TIP #3: Once over the first hill and towards the right is an old ore car that was left behind. Pretty cool. The mine is also located close by. TIP #4: I don't recommend climbing the Liberty Bell Arch. Don't do it. TIP #5: The views of the Colorado River is worth the hike. Just be careful. The drop down is over 1,000 feet. TIP #6: Bring enough hydration and snacks for energy. Peanut butter is my snack of choice. Leave no trace.

Amazing trail! Just not one you want to get caught in the rain in due to flash floods and and lightning! It doesn’t have any shade so best done in the spring winter or late fall. In the beginning and towards the end it’s easy to get lost. Just follow the wash till you see the sign marked Liberty Bell which will be in your right. My suggestion is find another biker who has completed the hike and down load their map! Met amazing people on the trail. The hike back is harder than the hiker there due to incline. I used my poles but you can do with out. The view is to die for at the peak! Thanks to those who brought a book for us to sign! #pajaritoinparadise -Dahlia aka T

Awesome trail! Absolutely beautiful scenery out & back. Sandy river bottom first mile in, then trail starts to ascend and become rocky. Minus a couple short, steep parts, it’s an easy 5.5 mile hike from the trailhead to the scenic overlook above the Colorado River. The outlook is stunning. To the North you can see part of the engineering marvel that is the Pat Tillman bridge. To the south you can look down & watch as kayakers meander down the beautiful blue river amongst the surrounding mountains. Take a rest up top for a while at the outlook & just take it all in. Only complaint about this trail is that it is extremely poorly marked, especially past the abandoned mine. The GPS on this app proved INVALUABLE as we had to check several times to make sure we were on the right trail. I can’t rate it 4.5 on the scale up above, but that’s what I would rate this beautiful trail, but only because it isn’t properly marked . Only a 30 minute drive East from Vegas a stones throw away from Hoover Dam & Pat Tillman bridge. Stop and check those out as well on your way!
