This is a great and pretty easy hike! If you are not used to the elevation gain, it may get you, but the overall length isn't too long. As of today, Aug. 19, there is still a trickle of water at the falls--just enough to stand under for a very refreshing cool down. Great view of Kyle Canyon from the top and some cool caves. Go on a weekday because it gets crowded on weekends and there were too many poorly patented children to really enjoy the water for long. Overall would definitely do it again.

Longer than expected with a higher vertical. But never overwhelming. A nice 2.5 hour trek around the mountain.

This is a challenging trail. Carry at least 3L of water.

Good easy hike shouldn't be too difficult for first time hikers. Still make sure u have shoes with good grip and enjoy the views and drink plenty of water have fun and good luck :)

Definitely not a moderate difficulty if you are new to hiking! It was beautiful but the incline and elevation get to you really quickly. Didn't even make it up to the falls, got half way and was so winding we had to turn back. Will definitely be returning after some more practice!

If you're an early riser this trail has morning shade in the Summer until around 8am.

Mediocre views at best, this is a dirt road walk, not a hike. For beginners only.

Great little intro Trail to Mt. Charleston Wilderness. Short and not too exposed with most of Bristlecone on the way and at the top--the main attraction! The loop is a little difficult to find if you're unfamiliar with the area, considering it also intersects with the Bonanza Trail. A fast hike if you go only one way and don't have a lot of time.
