One of the must do trails in Red Rock!

hiked this trail a bunch. like it a lot. not too hard. tried to go up during a good snow event but they closed it.

Couldn’t make it the whole way due to heavy rain. Saw quite a few waterfalls along the way.

great hike, loved the rain and the over cast. clean and quiet

Very good hike with great views of Red Rock Canyon as well as the Strip. Really enjoyed this one.

Nice view from the top

Great trail. Great views. Challenging with dogs, do not bring dogs if they are not familiar with challenging hikes and big boulder scrambling! Lots of scrambling. Trail NOT well marked.

First time on this trail today!! New favorite!!!

Did this on Jan 4, 2019. Portions of the trail are not super well marked and you need to do some rock scrambling before seeing the next portion of the trail, so having the downloaded offline trail map was extremely helpful. Overall very scenic and interesting rocks and rock scrambling passages were fun.

This was a great trail! My boyfriend and I took our dog and she loved it! There was a lot of people around the entrance and everywhere in general but you still felt away from the busy city.

I went Jan 12 @ 11:30am. It was a bit cloudy, no rain though. I'm not an experienced hiker and went solo.

Plenty of parking when I went, but I can see it being packed pretty quickly. I don't know if I fell off the trail, but I was following it and eventually went up some boulders and got lost. I remember reading it's supposed to be 2-3 hours, took me 4 1/2 to get back to my car. I never found the waterfall, but got some great pictures. There were two people scaling the mountain which I thought was crazy, but you can see that they had the proper equipment and were experienced but really great to see. A bit of poop, nothing crazy though. Definitely has cactus everywhere. Not much wildlife, found a creek though. Ill try again to find this waterfall and maybe not get lost. It was very easy to navigate back to your car though because of the landscape.

Park at Quarry and begin your route. It is not the best marked but when you start stay along the riverbed and turn toward the red rock. Lots of people to follow and nice hike.
Do not be fooled there are lots of rocks and other items to scamper over and at the top you will have to scamper to the end. The view is cool. Worth the time.

Nice Hike! Lots a boulders different sizes, different ways up and down the trail, you can hear the water fall as your approach the end. Lots of shrubs and tall trees through to help support along with huge boulders to climb.

Great views... should probably be classified as hard since it’s mostly rock climbing.

absolutely gorgeous hike. we saw lots of interesting flora and the absolute quiet in the canyon was so astounding. the trail was so fun to scramble thru up and around. there was a great little water fall at the end of the trail, but the trail itself was more scenic than the endpoint. I would definetly recommend to people who are up for the scramble. I wouldn't recommend for those with young children

I enjoyed this trail. It had a variety of terrains.

Great trail with a bunch of scrambling and bouldering. Can be made easier by following side trails but where’s the fun in that?

Definitely worth it to finish the hike by climbing up the small water fall at the end.

Great view at the top. Sicking to the left during the climb and following the trail markers will make the climb easier.

We made the mistake of going to the right and ended up doing a difficult scramble to get the the saddle of the peak.

The registry at the top has some great comments. Definitely worth the effort.

Perfectly moderate difficulty trail. There are some side paths that can make it more difficult but the main path is very pleasant.

I did this hike when it was almost entirely fogged out. Made for a cool sleepy hollow effect. Missed out on the city views but still enjoyed the hike very much. Hardest part was definitely coming down (when hiking clockwise). Trail is not super visible up top and especially with the fog I made sure to check my trail GPS to make sure I didn’t hike right off the edge. Can’t wait to go back and do this hike in clearer weather to compare.

Some areas are challenging to navigate, tight passages that require minimal rock climbing. There are areas to get off the trail and climb some. Great hike.

Beautiful view, especially with the fog as we approached the top. We enjoyed scrambling over sticking to the exact trail to make it a bit more challenging and exciting. Recent rainy weather meant the path was filled with more loose rocks and sediment than usual so my knees felt weary on the descent (also probably because I’m a bit deconditioned). Fun hike...definitely would do this one again!

A walk in the park with ponds and shade trees in the picnic areas. Stroller friendly, too.

Hiked on 12/28/19 - windy conditions, temp high 30s, sunny

Make sure to have extra layers if there's wind, it can cut through the canyon and feel quite cool if you're out of the sun. Beautiful view out to Las Vegas at the top (scramble up the rocks to get the best unimpeded view of the strip) and a straightforward hike. Trail is easy to follow and has only moderate climbs. Great trail for anyone of any fitness level, short and sweet with a great view.

Can you still get all the way to the summit in Jan (now)? Wondering if there is too much snow in the way?

Fun rock scramble, waterfall is awesome at the end, however if your hiking it in the dark make sure not to lose the trail (pretty easy to get off the trail and lost in the dark :)

Great hike. Completed today and the cold weather made it even better. Not technical just be cautious with the loose sand making rocks slippery.

the trail is unmarked, hard to find. Lots of scrambling up steep rocks and slippery rubble. I would not call this an easy hike.
