It was decent there was a big incline on one hill that was difficult but it was a good workout. Other than that the hike was easy but not much to look at. Wasn’t a big fan because people were off roading on the path and at the end people were shooting in the desert. Really should go further out if you are doing those kind of activities especially near residential homes and a hiking trail. Won’t go again in this trail because the view was dull.

The first part of the hike as designated is a gravel road and not worth hiking. I start farther south which brings you through the valley and is more fun to hike. There are 2 peaks towards the end of this hike. I prefer not going to the second peak, since I don't care about looking over the all the houses in the valley. The first peak has an open flat area and is better for chilling with my dogs. This hike is great considering it isn't crowded, is easy to get to and has a decent elevation gain. Absolutely worth it if you are looking for a short and quick hike.

Love this 3.6 mile out-and-back trail which I ran many times when I lived in Las Vegas! I built up and re-conditioned most of the trail. When I first began trail building this trail, there was no trail all the way to the peak of the mountain and you had to scramble up the mountain to get to the top (not fun!). So I decided to build trails that connected and led you all the way to the top. After working on the trail and building it up for almost a year, I finally created a route that you could run/hike from the bottom to the top. This trail is very rocky (as most of trail running in Las Vegas is!) so make sure you have good hiking boots or trail running shoes. The views from the top give you a spectacular view of the southwest part of Las Vegas. Named the trail after my brother who passed in 2016 and who was an avid outdoors man and avid hiker.
