Great trail, basically a walking tour of Red Rock. I've done it clockwise and counterclockwise and don't really have a a preference on which is the "better" way to travel the loop. Clockwise gets the "boring" Jeep trail out of the way and leaves the scenic Calico portion for the end. Counterclockwise gives you a great scenic start and ends with an easier return on the Jeep trail. Can't go wrong either way. Pretty easy to follow, can get a little hard to find the trail when it intersects with the trailheads but nothing too frustrating. Definitely recommend waiting for cooler weather to do this hike.

Beautiful hike. I believe this one is better than Mary Jane Falls. Hiking boots a must.

I'm from Vegas and my sister and I would do this hike a couple times every summer. If it's in the summer, though, you should make sure to get an early start because there's no tree cover until you get to the slope of the actual mountain and even then, it's just some short and pretty sparse junipers. The hike is long and the "trail" becomes less defined as you get closer to the slope of the mountain, so my sister and I would usually end up taking whichever route we wanted that given day, often the wash that was still shaded by the peak. The view at the top isn't great just because visibility isn't great, but otherwise, getting to the top feels pretty good. I would recommend this hike to anyone, just make sure you bring plenty of water!

We loved the hike. Its fairly easy and not too strenuous. Plenty of shade and the canyon is wonderful. the walk back has great canyon views.

So hard. I in no way completed the hike. I did 3 miles in and 3 miles out. Kicked my butt.

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.

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.

beautiful scenery, but not well marked. We never found the falls. There are a few petroglyphs and a really pretty bridge. Did this hike with two kids ages 5 and 7. This was their first hiking experience. They did well.

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.

Been a few years since I hiked this trail. It was my first hike in a long time so I found out real quick that I was out of shape (even though I was 7% body fat). I went home exhausted and burnt from the lack of shade and poor preparation, but it was the beginning of a hiking/climbing journey. Since then, I’ve hiked and climbed all over the country!

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.

This is one of my favorite trails when I want to get in a short hike.

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.

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!

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

Nothing special. Used as a slow recovery scramble for the legs after doing Chasm Lake in Colorado.

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!
