Favorite part is when your going up the trail has these large rock trails and the bench at the top. This is a pretty easy trail

Great views and not a ton of people on a Sunday morning. After a mile or so, the trail leaves something to be desired. Some serious effort should be made to build a sustainable trail rather than the maze of paths that have resulted because of the lack of a decent trail. While the area is rock, building a solid, well switchback trail would help keep hikers off their arses and on their feet. The trail is pretty slick with the loose sand and rock.

In general, it appears as no effort has been given to true trail construction beyond the 1st mile. Hopefully this will happen to help both the environs as well as hikers on the trail.

Glad we hiked it, but just hope the trail gets some love in the future.

From 9120' - 10,658' elevation it was almost entirely ice and snow fields. Told that crampons and axe not necessary which was HORRIBLE beta. Loved the hike but the level of effort without the former went through the roof. Lesson learned!

Definitely a moderate hike up hill. The path is very visible. You can't get lost. Can be very slippery in places. A few areas with shade to stop and rest if needed. Sundays are busy :) But it is well worth it to see the waterfall at the end. Great trail. Would def recommend

This is one of my favorites. It's a shorter hike but definitely a great workout! The first 1 mile or so through the desert is moderate. The last 1 1/2 miles or so are steep going up. The ridge at the end is very steep. The total miles one way is 2.5, which took me about 1 1/2 hours up. Be careful of lots of loose rock and the trail is harder to keep track of towards the top. Overall this is a great hike with great views at the top! You can see a huge portion of the city.

Was a really easy trail. Good for kids too.

Was a little worried at first this hike was going to be boring but the views improved near the end. Be ready for no shade. Good point at the end to sit and enjoy the view of the Vegas Valley.
