This is an awesome mtb place I recommend it

Excellent views!

Nice well pathed trail up to one of the Black Mountain peaks. Easily accessible to the top in one hour for the experienced hiker. Short switchbacks with cool rock formations make it interesting to ascend with excellent views of both the Strip and Lake Mead at the peak.

Awesome! Great trail with some amazing 360 views if you make it to the top!

great trail. nice size parking lot at trail head, well marked, great views as you head up hill, good hiking surface of hard packed crushed rocks. All in all a great hiking experience.

Great trail! Simple switchbacks up to a false summit, where you have two options to proceed: a bike path (Red Mountain) or another couple of switchbacks and ridgewalks to Black Mountain summit, where Lake Mead is actually visible. We chose to turn around and head back at the false summit because it was getting dark and we had to continue driving.

Summary: easy, rewarding, dog friendly. Ample parking and not a crowded trail. Would highly recommend.

The long winding lead up to the switchbacks is confusing but well marked if you're paying attention. Don't confuse the path with the bike paths.

Hoping this would be an ok running trail, I was pleasantly surprised by the view and, while not a great running trail, the moderate technical (1,200 ft+ climb, rocks, scree) aspect. Good for morning/evening hikes in summer (not much shade), and nice views of LV and Lake Mead/BC. Bring water.

Had a great time hiking yesterday with my wife ... well worth the view when you get to the top ..

Great hike and pretty easy as well. No steep inclines and trail is maintained very well. Easy hike.

Wonderful trail - great views with chance of seeing bighorn! Start early in summer months.

I thought this hike offered one of the best views of Las Vegas. Bring plenty of water and I would not advise this hike during summer.

Moderate 6mi round trip hike from Boulder City to the top of Black Mountain (the river one). Beautiful views of Lake Mead and LasVegas!
