Just moved here from South Dakota and I’m loving all the nature and trails! You forget that you live in such a big city when you get out here. So beautiful and calm. Lots of wildlife too

Fun hike! Ton of wildlife. Road runners, coyotes, many jack rabbits and many little critters. Beautiful views all around.

Nice walk but poor signage to transition from lower trail to upper trail.

Great park with hiking trails. The uphills are a good work out. Quiet. Great for dogs.

Nice trail, some rolling hills before getting to the top then it’s pretty flat. We had a stroller on this trail and it was quite do-able.

What a surprise. A welcome bit of nature during our vacation in The Strip.

Nice relaxing trail, it’s more of a walk and not difficult!

This is a very clean little trail. The few from the top isn’t much to look at but getting up the rocky hillside was a nice little challenge for my pups. The paved lower loop is perfect for biking or family but there are plenty of dirt trails to follow if you want to do a little exploring.

Easy "city" trail. Views from Top are OK. Not overly impressed but if you just want a quick hike it's fine

This an easy, enjoyable trail and gives you a little workout getting up the mesa. My little dog loves it. Close to home and the lower trails are fun on the bike.

Beautiful view of Henderson. Great trail that's right off of sunset. I agree with others, the housing development kind of ruins the view but a fun trail none the less.

As an amateur geologist and fossil hunter this place was awesome. Unfortunately it was 99 degrees by 9 am. But I did it! Loved seeing the layers in the sediment!!!

Considering how close this is to everything and how awesome the fault line looks, they've done a good job with this. Unfortunately is does look like they're going to develop more homes directly under the bluffs........ That really ruins this trail

The high elevation was a little too steep to bike up for me, but the elevation was beautiful to see Henderson from so high up. Will definitely bring my dogs next time.
