It's a dusty trail and the path is easily lost but it takes you from a dessert setting to a green stream setting which is amazing

Thoroughly enjoyable and easy
A bit difficult to find the start of the trail or maybe I’m just stupid! Parking was also a pain.
Please be careful - the heat even in the morning is overbearing at points. Take plenty of water and sunscreen.

As of January 2018 it is now $10 to enter the park. No discount for Nevada residents.
This is a wonderful trail, a bit muddy in places due to the overnight rain but still very passable. A little elevation gain and the need to watch your footing due to rocks on the trail but otherwise an easy stroll with fantastic rocky mountain views.

We did a guided night hike and it was awesome.

Great views! We bomb voyage, it has a better vantage point. 1,500ft elevation instead of 1000ft.

Took a wrong turn at Albuquerque so decided to go ahead and follow Boneshaker around to Muffin Ridge and then back down Caren Canyon. Excellent view of the Strip at the top and plenty of boulders to sit on and enjoy. If you have Sprint, there is no service along this trail until you reach the top. I’ll be bringing my iPod next time for tunes

This trail looks more intimidating than it is. It was nice to change things up with a bit of scrambling. I would definitely recommend walking sticks to help maneuver around slight obstacles on this trail.

This trail has a 4 Star view and it’s a pretty view of the Las Vegas. It’s trail conditions are 50/50. Like many of the trail on the east side of blue diamond road they are not well maintained. You can easily get rerouted or lost from your original journey. Often times the trails here are not worn and you loose site of them. A friend of ours uses this trail as a workout trail and it’s got a good steep ascend for a short distance. It’s 100% in the sun and highly recommend doing this in the winter early spring months to avoid overexposure to the heat and sun.

Excellent trail that intersects with a few other trails in the area. the trails are not very intersections aren't marked, so keep your map out to make sure you stay on the right trail. There's a lot of green behind Mount Wilson and it's all beautiful. This trail is also outside of the Scenic Loop, there's a parking lot right at the start of trail so there's no fee.

It was beautiful!

7200 ft
spectacular scenery. .

A nice afternoon hike. Not too much of an elevation change. Great if you are a bit out of shape. It’s fun taking the tour of the old ranch house too!!

Beautiful trail, kid and dog friendly. great for all ages, younger children may need a little help in areas. You do cross a stream in the middle and there is also a halfway mark if You only want to do a 1mile instead of 2miles. The old houses, barns and cows are fun to look at towards the end of the trail.

I put this trail together because I needed something a little more difficult than any one trail in Red Rock could offer. I do recommend going counter clockwise when leaving the visitors center that way you can knock out Turtlehead Peak early on.

Wow! Amazing views of our beautiful Las Vegas from here!

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.

Great hike not a recommendation with this heat. It's worth the trip

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.

This is a very nice setting. Great place to have a picnic and take a hike. Kids will like the ducks and dragonflies at the pond. Interesting history at the ranch. While this hike is listed at 4 miles, it is not. It may have been at one time. Now the trail only goes for 1.5 miles. We did see bighorn sheep on the mountainside. Entrance fee for non-residents is $9 for car.
