Took a wrong turn at Albuquerque so decided to go ahead and follow Boneshaker around to Muffin Ridge and then back down Caren Canyon. Excellent view of the Strip at the top and plenty of boulders to sit on and enjoy. If you have Sprint, there is no service along this trail until you reach the top. I’ll be bringing my iPod next time for tunes

This trail has a 4 Star view and it’s a pretty view of the Las Vegas. It’s trail conditions are 50/50. Like many of the trail on the east side of blue diamond road they are not well maintained. You can easily get rerouted or lost from your original journey. Often times the trails here are not worn and you loose site of them. A friend of ours uses this trail as a workout trail and it’s got a good steep ascend for a short distance. It’s 100% in the sun and highly recommend doing this in the winter early spring months to avoid overexposure to the heat and sun.
