No water or flowers (early November) and easy to confuse the trails, but well worth the cost to enter ($9 for non-residents, $7 for Nevadans). Very pretty scenery and fairly easy, though I would say easy-moderate due to some moderate incline/decline spots

Nice easy relaxing hike. Great springtime flower hike.

It was a nice little hike. My almost 3 year old walked it herself only taking 3 snack breaks (her legs are small). The scenery was beautiful and that’s what made it worth it. The lake was dried up, and the river was gone except for a small trickle of water. There are old little houses you can take a tour of that you have to pass to get to the trailhead. I’m glad we went, but I don’t see us going back.

It's actually called the Sandstone Canyon Loop when you get into Spring Mountain Ranch and look at the map. It's a relatively easy trail, half is a fairly wide open path. The other half, if you choose to go all the way around the loop that crosses the wash, is a much narrower dirt trail. it's not that hard to see, it's lined with small white rocks on the sides. There is only one sign, however, that shows you where to take the right-hand fork to go counter-clockwise, as opposed to going around clockwise. This is a typical desert hike, lots of little scrubby brushes, Joshua trees, cholla cactus. The rocks and mountains are gorgeous, I've posted pictures. I enjoyed this hike so much, that I bought an annual pass. Looking forward to exploring the other hikes. Compared to Red Rock, there are more hikes that are rated easy.

This trail is an excellent confidence builder for those that have not been exposed to hiking. I would definitely pack a picnic, and enjoy the grassy and shady area by the parking lot and visitor's center. All of the plants are blooming and this place is a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas.

Very nice, easy trail with great scenery. Went on Labor Day and the trails were very empty. The park has lots of good spots for picnics. Dog loved it!

Easy family trail. My granddaughter enjoyed it,
especially watching the wild burros on the way!
