Best if you have a High clearance vehicle. Road can be rough for a car.

Trail was just fine, you get a decent view of the North side of Vegas on the peak. Mostly sage and Joshua trees for vegetation. Didn't see a single person on the hike

Secluded trail, come prepared for steep broken shale on many parts. View on a clear day is the best around Vegas.

Great hiking trail but not enjoyable enough downhill riding for a bike to justify the hours long push uphill.

My wife, me, 6 and 8yo boys made it but the kids were so tired on the way down, we had to go slow and steady and help my 6yo to keep him from falling too many times. This was our first time to Gass Peak. Took us 6hrs (car to peak to car). But only recorded 3:40 of “moving” time. Went in Feb, weather was perfect and a little breezy.

Fun. Go on a cool day. It can get hot. Lots of lady bugs when you get to the peak.

Done this twice. Difficult but worth the energy! Not recommended for the out of shape. There are some steep, shale covered areas that are probe to getting you sliding if you're not careful!

Great view of the city. Steep rocky trail but worth the trek. Recommend taking the Desert National Wildlife Range Road and signing in at the ranger station before taking the right onto Mormon Wells Road.
