Nice trail with lots of shade. During summer would recommend this for a morning hike.

Trail started off kinda boring, but once you get up to the boulders that you have to scramble up and get up the rope ladder, the trail was awesome. We hiked all the way to the stream up top. Great hike, very surprised. We ended up going over 1 mike further than where the trail map ended.

Excellent trail if you’re just starting back hiking. Lovely views and plenty of shade spots. Good for dogs as well. Would definitely do this again!

uphill climb. Pretty views. Great way to get out of the city. We did this hike with a 6 year old and she did well.

Easy walk in the woods until it hits the canyon and gets narrow. From there it's difficult to discern between the stream bed and the trail. It's been dry these past few years so the stream bed seems to have been the route most have taken and the trail itself is a bit disused. At the end of the trail you can continue up the stream until you get to some short vertical climbs. From there it's a scramble up some rocks to continue upstream. Payoff are some wonderful canyon views at the end and then all the way back.

Very nice and relaxing walk. Fairly well used and easy to manage. Great entry or training hike, just speed up your pace to add difficulty. The Eagle's Nest loop is off this trail and can be used to add some distance if you find this hike to be too short.

Great hike for a walk in the woods and a wonderful hike for the family with kids because the area is confined and there are no big drop offs to wander over.

Great trail. There are a bunch of options along the way to make the hike harder. Pays off at the end with a beautiful canyon walk.

Easy trail with a slight incline going up. Lots of shade, and pretty views. Trail isn’t necessarily marked, so make sure to pay attention or stay on path.

Fun little loop. Nice views of the valley. Lots of sun along the trail. Worth it for an easy stroll outside.

Great hike. We saw a lot of butterflies and lizards. It took us about 1 hour 20 min one way to hike to the end of the narrow canyon where the “slide” was. We were hiking at a leisurely pace and taking pictures along the way. Be careful as the rocks are very slippery along this hike.

I love this trail. Each weekend has welcomed a new scene with blooms, butterflies and birds. Plenty of shade to dip off the trail for a nap, a snack or just to ponder.

Neat short hike. gradually climbs up. Easy hike back. once you get in the canyon it's about 15-20 degrees cooler than Vegas temp.

The scenery surrounding the hike was amazing on its own. Slight incline most of the way, nothing to worry about. The rock canyon at the end features some amazing butterflies and, if you like, you can continue past the “end destination” where the canyon opens back up. “Easy” hike, but you can choose to make it more difficult.

Beautiful slow grade climb through the woods, and then the last .2 miles is a steeper incline into an AMAZING rock canyon! KEEP GOING - it gets more and more amazing the further up you go! My dog and I went at least another .5 mile past the official end of the trail up the dry wash bed!

Not bad for my first hike in this area. I sure do miss trees! Towards the end the rocks were pretty cool but I didn’t expect it to just end.. was hoping for some views but overall it was a decent day hike.

It’s “easy”, but prepare yourself for the incline the whole way there. Lots of shade, lots of trees, lots of places to stop and admire the beautiful scenery. There’s usually water at the very end, it was dry to the bone today, bummer. Great hike! :)

A nice easy trail, welcome escape from the Vegas heat! Plenty of wildlife if you take the time to look for it. Great trail for walking the dog or hiking with your kids - the Eagle side trail offers some better views....

Easy kid-friendly hike right off SR 157. If you’re short on time and just want to escape the Valley heat for a couple hours, book this one. No real spectacular views along the way but always nice to smell the pine trees and listen to the wind speak through them.

Great trail to bring visitors. Not too hard. Great scenery.

Amazing trail! The first half is all gravel and very level. The second half is less level, but nothing too crazy. The canyon is great. The end of trail ends with very steep rock face. I was told it goes on for a good while, but it's a lot of scrambling and was just too steep for me and my dog. I definitely will be going back to try and go further up.
