Not much of a hike. Man-made waterfall. Zero shade (I know, it’s a desert, but still). Trail is well lined, but you get to the bottom and it says the water may contain human waste, so it’s best for humans to not come into contact with it... Just what I want to see when I’m hiking...not.

This trail is not much of a hike at all like the other reviews have said. There is a great view of the a man-made/waterfall and the river. Although there is a sign posted not to come in contact with the water because it could contain sewage runoff from the city.

Great way to spend the morning. The narrows were really nice. If you choose to do the loop be sure to look to the right after the double culvert for the trail that goes up the hill. it is obscure if you dont know what to look for. you will see a diagonal ridge that is the trail. it is before a group of very large boulders and it goes up and back. I hope that helps peopme find it.

We did only a small section of this trail. We walked .2 miles to a view point that looked into the gorge where there was a waterfall below. We did not go further into the trail as it was midday and there is not one tree on this trail. It's just flat, treeless terrain. Though at the trailhead it says the trail is not maintained, at least the section we walked seemed well maintained, rock lined paths. Not sure how the rest of the loop is.

Not much of a hike, but the dogs liked it. Easy parking - well marked trail down to river. Mostly rocky shoreline. Probably not the best location for a family picnic. Good for a jaunt down to river and back. Some people fishing and said they have caught bluegill and bass. Lots of carp.

Completed this trail loop in about an hour. Area is under construction and is open to hikers during the weekend and holidays. Not the most scenic but still an interesting hike with different elevations. Some wildlife was roaming around, like a coyote that caught a fish in the wash.

Not the most scenic trail and not well maintained, but still interesting.

This isn't even a hike. Its just a little trail that goes down a bluff to the wash that flows from Lake Las Vegas. It is completely covered in litter, and really just kind of disgusting. I've read that animals can be spotted here, and that might be true, but if you're interested in sighting animals you're much better off visiting the Wetlands Preserve in Henderson (near Boyd Stadium) where quail, rabbits and other animals are a common sight. This so-called trail isn't worth your time, and because of the pollution it won't even be good for kids. Once again, the Wetland Preserve is a much better alternative.

Fairly easy hike to get things going for the year is how I use this trail! It is a nice hike with some moderate challenges to it, but nothing too terrible.
