The hike is about a mile across the flat desert on a very wide and well-defined trail. Well before the mouth of the canyon when you get to the very first tree turn 90 degrees to your right and walk about 100ft to reach the hidden waterfall. There is a wide path to the top of the fall. Reaching the base of the waterfall requires some scrambling.

One of my favorite trails to hike in the area. It's easy, stress free, and absolutely beautiful. I've seen burros, snakes (non venomous), lizards, hawks, caterpillars, rabbits, etc. When the spring is full, it's a great place for dogs and kids to splash around. When it isn't, it's a great place to just sit and relax.

Great hike and I loved there was a “waterfall”. Today’s weather was a perfect 80 degrees. Nice to be back home. Vegas Strong

Love to take the dogs here to cool off in the water. Keep on leash at all times (it’s the law) for safety of your pup and other pups.
Easy hike for the whole family

Beautiful views of red rock and the hidden waterfall is surrounded by large boulders so very isolated and cool on a hot day!

More of a Nice easy walk more than a hike. I am new to hiking and this was effortless for me. Great way to enjoy nature without needing to put in a lot of physical strength.

fairly easy trail with a lot of great views of waterfalls and wild life.

Such a nice trail! Very easy and very flat with the smallest amount of climbing at the end. The pond was cool to see, too.

Really fun easy hike for the whole family. There is a hidden water pool that is pretty cool and worth walking down to.

Great trail for kids and pups! I carried my son in a front carrier and was able to complete the 3.6 mile hike. It’s NOT a loop so plan for 2-3 hours. Bring snacks and water.

Great trail for kids and my dog. Gets chilly in the shadow of the mountain but scenery is beautiful.

What a great hike! Although I could never quite figure out when the trail ended, but exploring was great. At the “fork” in the path, go right. When you get to the first green tree that looks out of place, turn 90 degrees and venture down to the waterfall! It rained the day before so there was actually water!

we went in the sprong/summer when it hasn't rained in a while and the creek was pretty much dry. even with the creek I dont think it would be anything exciting

I enjoyed it and it was a great first hole with my dogs. My dogs (10) are older and they did great! Bummed no water was flowing but there was a small part of the creek that still had water and my Lab had a great time in it!

This is definitely one of my favorite trails to do with my kids. It usually takes about 3 hours with the kids (4 & 6). It is fairly easy to stay on the trail until you get towards the end. There is a nice little creek filled with frogs that is a ton of fun for the kids. I would strongly recommend this trail for all families visiting red rock.

Beginning easy, as you get closer to the canyon the trail becomes more of a scramble with the path becoming less and less clear. No waterfall this time of year that we could find. total hike time 2.5 hours. We arrived at 5pm and the entire hike was nicely shaded.
