Great little trail, named for primary trail builders of local BLM, USFS lands. Almost every trail in Red Rock Canyon, Mt. Charleston, Kyle, and Lee Canyons can be enjoyed thanks to these hard-working young people. This trail is named for SMYC and it is a great way to honor Clark county's rehabilitation program for troubled children. You won't need any help following this trail - it is lined with rocks as it crosses the wash, and cut through deep red soil along the slopes, even having stone steps to assist in loose footing and steep climbs.

an easy enough trail that hugs close enough the the mountains that topography remains interesting throughout. it runs parallel to the scenic route and close enough to see cars on it so if you're worried about getting lost, this can serve as a security blanket. some uphill and downhill sections, many rock stairs. A great beginners and young kids trail. I would use this trail for trail running since it is quite well defined with interesting enough surroundings and elevation changes.

Beautiful trail! Loved the easiness of it. Wished it looped around but the different changes in terrain was nice!

A great, short trail that you can string together with Dale's trail or Ice Box Canyon if you want something longer.
