This area is where my family (local to Vegas) calls home. Pick your poison out here (for free). Easy, rocky trail approach to the Red Rocks. ..Simple desert trails not frequented by the national park tourists...Challenging scrambles with beautiful vista payouts...Enough moderate rock climbing to fill days worth of sends. Plenty of places with minimum to no exposure to picnic with little ones. This is where I teach my kids (ages 3 & 5) basic desert knowledge, hiking, scrambling, & top rope climbing. Come check out the locals spot and avoid the crowds. Word of warning....This place gets plenty of sunlight which is particularly nasty during summer months. Seriously, I almost killed my sisters dog on a 15 minute hike!!! Plan accordingly :)

Easy to follow, some boulder hopping. Watched the rock climbers. Good fun

This is a great little hike. After a long hike yesterday this is what my aching legs needed. It starts out nice and easy...the is a maze of boulder scrambling up to a mountain pass. The view from the top isn't the best, but it is well worth it. There is more to explore around the pass, but I ran out of time. I am probably going to come back and do this one again.
