Nice quick hike with a picnic lunch at the top!! Great day to be alive! Dogs and kids running around at the top but not annoying anyone!

Moving to this area soon so I thought I’d have a look around the neighborhood. I decided to hike up today and it was easy but still a nice little heart pumping workout. Great view at the top too.

This is a GREAT place to get some incline and elevation gain without driving to the mountains. While the walk is short, it has multiple paths of various difficulty. The path going straight up the side would challenge Walter Payton in his prime. The gradual trail can be completed by beginners. Nice view of the Strip from the rotunda at the top, which also gives a nice Las Vegas history lesson.

I wouldn’t call this a hike, but it’s a good bit of exercise. I like to run it. Great views of the city. Suggest it if it’s near by but don’t make the trip if it’s not in your backyard.

For a big guy like me I can't say it was the easiest. But it is an easy hike! Great surroundings and great park at the bottom. Will definitely return just to make sure I make it easy for me!

My wife and I took our 7yr old, 5yr old niece and 2yr old on this hike. Good for the family. The little one make it most of the way (2/3) before needing carried. View is amazing!

There are several paths you can take to the top with the most challenging being those going straight up. If you choose these routes take your time and make sure of your footing because of loose rocks and pebbles. Once at the top, make your way to the observation circle - stand in the middle of the compass facing the Strip and give a big yell - you'll be amazed at the acoustics. On the trip down, take the more gradual route. Again, because of the loose rocks and pebbles. Ample parking, restrooms and water adjacent the parking lot, but no facilities at the top. Great 360 views of the valley.
