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.

Easy trail to walk up and back. Excellent view of the valley at the top and a bit quieter up there too. Hiked this in biz casual and dress shoes and no issues except some slippage on my way back down.
