First full day in Las Vegas, so of course I #OptOutside. Really enjoyed this entire area; I did wander off the trail and did some off-trail hike. Peaceful, no other hikers the entire time I was out here. I was a bit disappointed at the lack of critters, but I guess too much human traffic keeps everyone hidden 'till dark.

I've hiked around Red Rock quite a few times only because I live in Vegas and its the closest National Park for miles. It's not my favorite park. The trails are confusing, not well marked and easy to get lost in. This is one of the better marked trails but it crosses others trails so you have to be careful to stay on track. It's long with a minimal climb. I didn't see any wildlife but I've heard you can see bighorn sheep if you're lucky. It's okay and a nice break from Vegas but not my favorite.

The rock formations you hike by are interesting if your not from around Vegas! I hear there are better hikes but I enjoyed it while visiting from Northern California. I saw a taranchula Eating wasp which is fascinating looking.

By itself this hike is kinda boring, however joining it to another trail makes it worth the while. I like take the willow springs trail to the white rock/la madre trail. This makes a complete loop around the white rock.

They have an 11 mile loop option which was gorgeous! We got to see some big horn sheep. Great time of year to go out was out in March!
