This was a nice trail in Mount Charleston where you could see lee canyon and take the old trail around the back on the mountain where it was a small trail but much more woodsy and beautiful. Weather was freezing and my boyfriend and I decided to backpack it so we stayed the night at the top... very windy and around 25 degrees. Overall loved the hike, not a big fan of the ending on the lee canyon parking road.

My 1st experience with this trail. I read the reviews and parked at the lower trail head and went counter clockwise. The 1st couple of miles are a gravel road that are pretty easy, once it turns into a trail it gets steep and tight. There's great opportunities for pictures and wildlife viewing. it is not a hike for beginners. The trail is well marked and easy to follow.
