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.

Great little hike up the canyon. I would suggest a good pair of sturdy shoes because the trail is mostly loose rock.

This is a beautiful little out and back hike. As you get deeper into the canyons, the scenery changes and there is more greenery to be enjoyed. The slots at the end of the trail are awesome and the dogs love it when there is water trickling down. They’re always a little disappointed when it’s all dried up though so we make sure to go when water will be present.

LOVE this hike! The trial changes all the way up to the end from desert to beautiful woods and trees and then all of a sudden you’re surrounded by beautiful steep cliffs inside the Canyon. Will definitely do this hike again and again.

This path was beautiful! There was a lot of traffic with children and families- it is so nice to see so many wonderful people getting healthy. I didn’t make it to the end but I will try again soon! I had a wonderful time with my niece, her dog and my dog- we will definitely be back!

The trail is rated as easy, but when there is snow on the ground it can be difficult to follow where the trail goes. It's a gorgeous hike, and probably not as popular or well known as it should be. This one is one of my favorites, especially at the end where you are in a beautiful small valley.

A nice easy incline for most of the way. A bit hard to distinguish the trail from the creek in parts, but a great hike none the less. There was water at the falls, which made the hike worth it, especially for the dogs.

This was a really nice trail. I went with my boyfriend and younger siblings, and we really enjoyed it. It started to rain, but we had pretty good coverage under the trees along the hike. Some great spots for taking pictures, and not exhausting at all! My dog loved the trail too!

Hiker friendly and dog friendly. Gradual incline and shaded by trees. Towards the end a little narrow and slippery rocks due to the wash. Easy trail to follow.
