I hike this trail to the bottom of the waterfall and then up to the top of the waterfall at least 2 times a week. Love it!

7月13日、日曜日に頂上に行きました。滝まで1時間、さらにそこから頂上まで2時冠程度かかりました。何種類もの鉱山植物やお花畑が出迎えてくれます。花の香りを登山口から頂上まで楽しみながら登れる、非常に美しい山です。滝周辺は湿原になっており、天然のイングリッシュガーデンのようです。
大好きな山の一つになりました。

Beautiful trail. Recommend going mid July to see the wildflowers

So hard. I in no way completed the hike. I did 3 miles in and 3 miles out. Kicked my butt.

Views are amazing. Totally worth it.

What a gorgeous view! The weather was great and a welcomed break to the LV heat. It was the perfect getaway for the day. We started the hike at 9:30 am and it was just perfect. It’s definitely a moderate hike, but take stops along the way and enjoy the journey.

We enjoyed the trail but it started pouring rain on us and thundering so we ended up freezing but we would recommend it. :)

After reading all the great reviews on here I had to go and check this trail out for myself this past Saturday.

I’m kicking myself for not going sooner. The views at the bottom are nice but as you start to get near the top they are just absolutely gorgeous.

The trail is mainly on an incline the entire way, so don’t forget to take a break when needed.

An incredibly beautiful hike! The wildflowers are blooming, waterfall flowing, and snow is gone. The first section of the hike to the waterfalls is very easy! The second section is quite challenging. A lot of elevation gain with steep hills. I recommend hiking poles. There are sections with loose rock and dirt. Well worth it when you get to the top! Give yourself time to acclimate to the high elevation. And btw the bathrooms at the parking are closed!

We had this trail completely to ourselves (except for the grasshopper/crickets). It was all up on the way out with some significant grade incline. We had our dogs and they enjoyed the few creek crossings to get a drink and cool their feet. Trail was well-marked. We gave this 4 stars because it was difficult walking on the loose gravel at the significant grade. Did see one snake on the path near the top.

A challenge but the beauty is worth the climb

This is marked as hard because of the steep climb, but at least there is no scrabbling! Nice work out for the legs and lungs, and worth the climb! A new favorite short hike. I will definitely come back to this trail after trying others.

Surprisingly nice little walk through the Damonte Ranch Wetlands. This easy 3 mile paved trail is a great spot for birding. Also, the best playground I've found in town would make it a great place to bring the kiddos.

Great hike. When hiking in the fall be sure to wear a light jacket. The weather on top is delightfully chilly.

uphill climb. Pretty views. Great way to get out of the city. We did this hike with a 6 year old and she did well.

there wasn't much to see.

beautiful scenery. We saw 2 antelope in the road that refused to move and later We spotted a big horn sheep right off the road. We checked out several trails that day. Great for kids. Don't go midday summer, too hot.

short trail easy for kids and pets. Was easy to get lost. It's right off the road.

easy short hike for kids and pets to see lots of amazing petroglyphs. The sand is hot for pets, be careful. We saw 4 big horn sheep!

HORRIBLE! Worst idea to hike up with a 40lbs of packing. Will not return unless told otherwise

Such a beautiful trail, not much incline at all but very much worth it. You’ll see lots of different nature from plants to animals. Definitely done best in the morning or evening when there’s not too many people. I’ve done the tail twice with no other hikers and it’s even more beautiful.

Holy cow. You gotta WORK for this one! Made it to the arch, but wasn't able to go any further due to a thunderstorm that closed in on us fast as we traversed up the crack below the arch. Just enough time to get up, take a few pics, and get back down. Started pouring just after we climbed back out of the final chute on the return. Will definitely be coming back to summit.... Two things: 1- I've got a stock Ford F150 with BFG KO2 and made it 2 miles into Rocky Gap Road without a problem. Making it to the TH with factory clearance could be an issue, but it's possible to take off at LEAST 4-5 miles round trip in a stock vehicle, driving carefully. 2- the more "technical" portions of the hike (last half mile) feel really sketchy - worse than they really are. If you're uncomfortable outside of the crack on the excited face, you can crab your way up/down the crack slowly and safely. Total stats today: 12.1M, 3,562 elevation gain (parked truck 2mi. approx up Rocky Gap, to the arch - not summit), and 6h27m r/t. Good luck!

Amazing wildflowers this time of year (mid-July)! Fairly easy hike, would be a great family day trip. There are lots of switchbacks so you hardly even notice the elevation gain!

beautiful scenery, but not well marked. We never found the falls. There are a few petroglyphs and a really pretty bridge. Did this hike with two kids ages 5 and 7. This was their first hiking experience. They did well.

this was the first time I hiked anything like this. I felt accomplished! We took my 3 grandkids and my dog and they did fine. Gorgeous views during the entire hike. We even had some rain. At the flat area near the top there is a small flat area you can camp. Leave no trace and no camp fires. This hooked me on hiking! Strenuous hike for beginner, but so worth the pay off.

beautiful waterfall at the end. very hard to find the entrance. We have done this two years in a row and its one of our fav spots. We spent the whole day down there. There was no waterfall this year, but still a pool and gorgeous scenery. We did this with two kids, ages 5 and 7. They did great.

Definitely felt out of the city with amazing views, took the South route but didn’t make it to the peak due to the trail being washed out.

Great hike with friends. Uphill going to the top of Mount Charleston but you will be rewarded with a great view of the surrounding mountains and valley below. I would definitely do this hike again.

We went in early November and the aspen trees were on point! A nice hike for the kiddos too.
