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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It’s for the most part all up I have done this one several times always great but it feels like it never ends

Fragrant! The wild flowers on the trail are in bloom and smells amazing! Take the hikers only track to the right when facing the sign. It's the trail that would lead directly to the waterfalls. Then, it gets more arduous from there because of the elevation! If you're not worried about the altitude, then by all means...."Charge" the mountain!

Moderate hike with a lot of solid uphill through some switchbacks. Wife and I are out of shape and the altitude and uphill required stops at the switchbacks. The last run up the falls gets into a good incline but there are steps and good trail to follow.

Payoff is a nice waterfall and some spectacular views. Totally worth the effort.

Trail is impossible to miss and easy to follow. There are some spots through the switchbacks where the trail looks eroded away and you have to be careful. Most of it looks to be caused by folks making a shortcut down the hill.

Easy walk in the woods until it hits the canyon and gets narrow. From there it's difficult to discern between the stream bed and the trail. It's been dry these past few years so the stream bed seems to have been the route most have taken and the trail itself is a bit disused. At the end of the trail you can continue up the stream until you get to some short vertical climbs. From there it's a scramble up some rocks to continue upstream. Payoff are some wonderful canyon views at the end and then all the way back.

Very nice and relaxing walk. Fairly well used and easy to manage. Great entry or training hike, just speed up your pace to add difficulty. The Eagle's Nest loop is off this trail and can be used to add some distance if you find this hike to be too short.

Great hike for a walk in the woods and a wonderful hike for the family with kids because the area is confined and there are no big drop offs to wander over.

Starts off nice and easy stroll for about 3 miles then you hit the awesome waterfall! After that is all up hill from there. me and my wife are just getting into hiking and it was by far the most challenging hike we have done so far but well worth it for the view of Truckee, Reno, Sparks, Carson City and of course Lake Tahoe. It took us about 5 hours at a decent walking pace. We stopped at the waterfall for about 10 mins and 30 mins at the summit. Lots of flowers along the way, a few creeks to skip across and even ran into a hungry marmot and chipmunks that greeted up at the summit. Weather was about 75 all day and only a little windy towards the summit. Defiantly bring lots of water, hiking shoes and a stick or poles if you have them. Enjoy!

Great trail. There are a bunch of options along the way to make the hike harder. Pays off at the end with a beautiful canyon walk.

Kicked my butt. We only went as far as the first summit, which was about 5 miles (total of 10). Hard hike. No joke. I loved it, I’m glad I went. I’m glad I pushed myself.

solid uphill hike, got me out of breath in a good way. nice trees and forest around. We went in July, so waterfall was little droplets of water but still! there was water! Started raining on us on the way down, with mini hail! it was a good 4 mile roundtrip hike.

Really great hike. The switchbacks on the front end are pretty grueling, but they lead to some amazing views — and, of course, Raintree (which isn’t marked, but is right by the sign where the trail splits after you come over the ridge). Temps were great for July — in the 70s when I started at 9:00 — and traffic on the trail was fairly light for a Sunday, especially once I passed the tree. Took me about 4.5 hours, but I made tons of stops for pictures and hung out by the tree for a while.

I’ll be doing this one again! Highly recommend it.

Beautiful trail to a stellar overlook! We were fortunate enough to get some of that rare Nevada rain on our way back down the mountain! It only added to the adventure and the beauty of the day! This trail is in great shape!

A beautiful early morning start from the Mt Rose Summit parking lot. A mild walk to the Galena Falls. The water was running pretty fast and the wild flower were in full bloom. Looks like the corn silk still have a while. The last mile seems to be the longest mile. It’s windy, dusty, and 10,000 feet. The views all the way up are breathtaking.

We just completed this hike in the rain and it was gorgeous. The view is phenomenal and totally worth the hike.

I hiked to the summit and as a new hiker, this was challenging for me. The view was absolutely gorgeous at the top but if you are new to hiking, you are in for an extremely rewarding but challenging hike.

Great hike with awesome views! did the upper and lower for the 5.6 mile loop. Next time we plan to just hike the upper out and back to stay in the shade more.

I was trying to go to the Trail Canyon Overlook (not to be confused with Trail Canyon!), missed the turn off and wound up here. Glad I did! The view was great and it's always nice to get away from the Vegas heat. This hike is a great work out for the legs and lungs! On my way down, I found the turn off for Trail Canyon Overlook and made my way there. Unfortunately, that trail seemed impassable at a certain part, so I had to turn around. Will definitely do this hike again!
