Was a little worried at first this hike was going to be boring but the views improved near the end. Be ready for no shade. Good point at the end to sit and enjoy the view of the Vegas Valley.

This was a great hike this morning. Good breeze, enough people that I wasn't nervous hiking on my own. Lots of uphill, good climbs. I kept going at the end of the trail and did what I like to call "baby bouldering" to the summit cairn with the ledger.

Spectacular view at the top! A good 20+ degrees colder and much windier up there too. Totally worth it!!

Follow the trails! It's definitely worth the hike. However it's definitely not an easy trail to hike. Make sure to bring water and snacks!
