One of the trails at Mt Charleston. Definitely a moderate hike up hill. The path is very visible. You can't get lost. Can be very slippery in places. A few areas with shade to stop and rest if needed. Weekends are bus, but it is well worth it to see the waterfall at the end. Great trail.

Hiked around 930am on a Sunday morning with my puppy. The trail was busy but not overwhelmingly crowded. And there was a puppy pool at the base of one part of the falls!

Though this trail is rated moderate, you will need solid footwear (sneakers, hiking boots) because there is coarse gravel throughout and some uneven stairs at the end. I saw two ladies in flip flips and sandals who were in pain and struggiing!

I absolutely loved this hike!!! Not very bad just some slippery rock so be carful. The waterfall wasn't flowing intense but had a good stream falling. Can't wait to hike it next spring to see the falls raging!!!

First time here....I went early. Started at 7:15am and was nearly alone on the way up. Coming down I passed probably 10 groups of 2 to 5. Loved the view! Hike progressively gets more difficult as you go. Easy road turns into switchbacks and when the switchbacks are over, they turn into steps for end of the hike, go early if you would like to avoid crowds.

It's not an easy trail but it's definitely worth the view. There are more switchbacks than the map indicates.

This is definitely not an easy trail, but definitely worth it! We arrived at 6:45 am, and managed to beat the rush, with only one party on the way up and several on the the way down. We saw around eight deer, and the view all the way up is amazing! The trail itself is in pretty good condition, if a little narrow in a few places. When we got to the falls at 7:30 am, we had it all to ourselves. Even in late July the falls still was flowing. I filled up my water bottle, and the water was so clear and pure! All in all, a great hike!
