I've been three times so far very impressed with this hike nice waterfall nice Trail took beautiful pictures of Nature and water and I got to pet multiple dogs that come to the waterfall to cool off

The details: Hiked 5/16/18. 55 y.o. hiking fit. 7 am start. 3 hours to summit, 5:30 RT. Snow is no longer an issue, just a couple of very small spots. I brought my yaktrax, and didn’t need them. T shirt up to ridge line where you make the left to GP. Very windy and cold from there, needed hat and gloves and a layer.

This is an awesome hike, my favorite in LV area. 360 views at the top. Very well maintained trail. No scrambling but very steep at the top. Have fun and treat yourself to a Buffalo burger and a beer at the lodge afterwards!

I took my 11 month old 20lb “weight vest” with me and made it at a pace of 31 min/mi... we both enjoyed the sights, sounds, smells very much! There weren’t a lot of people on the trail either (which I prefer) Can’t wait to do this beautiful hike again!

very fun

Nothing to not like about this trail. Postcard beautiful.

It was a great slot canyon. If you follow the would be trail passes the slots you have to do some bouldering to get past 1 mile marker. Saw a family of burros and lots of playful birds

Strenuous climb but well worth it. The bristlecone pine forest is beautiful. I had to stop myself from takin pictures of every tree.

The Rain Tree is not at the end of this hike but a little past the midway point. I posted a picture showing where the tree is on the AllTrails map. The rest of the hike is worth the trip; you end up on a ridge with steep cliffs. You may be disappointed if you expect the trail to end in an even better tree.

Great park, lots of shade and trees. Once you pass the gates there’s no more shade. The trail itself has a bunch of different paths you can take. You can definitely get a good leg workout. The trail also has 2 steep inclines. I did both and was well worth it. The views were awesome ⛰

Very clearly defined trail, although the entrance wasn’t all that well marked

It's alright. Not the prettiest trail but definitely a great glutes workout since it's all an uphill climb, about four or five legs of the trail!

One of my favorite trails to hike in the area. It's easy, stress free, and absolutely beautiful. I've seen burros, snakes (non venomous), lizards, hawks, caterpillars, rabbits, etc. When the spring is full, it's a great place for dogs and kids to splash around. When it isn't, it's a great place to just sit and relax.

Great hike and I loved there was a “waterfall”. Today’s weather was a perfect 80 degrees. Nice to be back home. Vegas Strong

The first half is the La Madre Springs hike and the springs kinda mark the half way point. at the springs there are a crazy amount of Dragonfly and Bees along with various wasps; be careful of the Tarantula Hawk, it has the second most painful insect sting right below the Bullet Ant.

Past the springs foliage is amazing and you almost forget you are in the middle of the Mojave: Pine, Juniper and reeds to name a few. The trail gets a little hard to follow here and there and it crosses the stream that feeds the spring a few times.

Things get a little steep as you get to the "Miner's Cabin" but it is worth getting there as the view is amazing.

If you want to find the mines above the cabin, things get a little rough and steep: one of the mines is about 40 feet horizontal and the other one descends into the ground, so I did not explore it. I think the mines are worth seeing but it did take me a few tries to find them.

Around one of the mines, I found a stone with a fossil in it.

I take about 2 liters of water with me when I go.

Super easy hike for all skill levels. We took the dogs and they enjoyed climbing the rocky steps. There was a small trickle water fall this morning. Beautiful views of wild flowers and lots of shady spots to hang out

Loved it. Beautiful.

4 stars as good for small children. Graffitti is a shame but handy to have Charleston Lodge at the bottom to enable ice cream rewards.

Summited 4/28/18 - as previous hiker said, lots of snow above 9k feet just after the second major overlook. The trail became completely obscured and we ended up following footprint paths in the snow directly across the switchbacks until just before the final bit of trail to the ridgeline. Trekking poles and microspikes helped us a ton and are highly reccomended. The snow often was up to our knees and there is currently no other way we could see to reach the ridgeline. Some footprint paths lead through more powdery snow that you can sink deep into, so be careful. Dirt on ground was damp from the snow melt and mostly had good traction, but was occasionally muddy and required extra caution. This was our first time hiking through this amount of snow and we felt confident as long as we took it slowly.

At the ridgeline, snow is melted away. A patch here or there on the final hike up to Griffith peak, but nothing that cant be walked around. Finding a safe route down was much easier as we already had a feel for the layout of the snow. 8 hours round trip for us from Cathedral Rock parking lot, including a break for lunch at the ridge line windbreak.

Great little hike. Dog friendly. You will find some water at the end of the trail. Sometimes there is a waterfall!!!

This is the Best place in Red Rock there is more evidence of native American Indians in this area then any other my friends and I rode our dirt bikes all over this area in the 70's and 80's

A longer hike on foot, but very enjoyable nonetheless. The views are amazing, though the trail itself is less than glamorous. It has a bit of climbing that was hard on my companion's knees and has little shade, so bring water.

Nice trail. Good view at the top.
