Great trail! Would consider it moderate as the theirs lots of rocks. Trail is not super defined but it’s very easy to follow. I did this trail round trip in 90 mins! Super pretty, love the view

VERY pretty, well-marked trail. SO many Aspens here - can't wait to hike this again in the Fall when the Aspens change color!

Great workout! All incline, all the way. The trail is well defined and easy to follow. Great views from the top and it intersects with other trails. The way down was no easy task. Be ready for a leg workout.

Rainy sleet and snow today

A great and relatively easy way to get back into parts of Red Rock that you can’t see from the loop drive. The backside of white rock is beautiful and the trail climbs enough to reach some different environments with more vegetation. Nice little creek at the end. Beware bikes, ATVs and some SUVs on the early part of the trail which starts on an unmaintained road. Half mile in and you’re only on trails though so not bad.

Impromtu hike this morning. Just me and my dog. I try to find trails that aren't too rocky since he tends to crecks his paws. this terrain was perfect for him. Was a fairly easy hike. Overall a little over two hours round trip. I came in mid May and everything was beautiful. quite a few butterflies lots of vocal birds and a lot of beautiful trees - can get a little chilly at the top of the mountain so of your coming in earlier months or on a windy weekend you may want a light sweater. Enjoy!

Nice trail to check out for a morning workout

The drive to the second parking lot can be a little rough. There is zero shade but other than that it was a nice trail with good views.

Really nice view once you get to the top.

I hiked this trail on 4/14/2018 and trail conditions then were not favorable. The first 2.5 miles were snow free, after that microspikes/crampons were highly recommended and trekking poles. My buddy and i are pretty experienced hikers who have climbed multiple high altitude peaks even with snow, but even then, there were portions of the trail that were just completely covered with thigh high deep snow. We made it pass the saddle and continued for another mile with Charleston in plain sight, but unfortunately due to time we had to turn back. Had it not been for time we surely would have summited, going again this weekend. Awesome trail though, just a bit long.

nice accent to the top. never had issues with the trail, the orange and white markers were helpful. a good challenge on the way up but more going down with the shale. take your time or you will fall! I did this hike early and was first to summit. not too many other hikers on this trail on a Weds. amazing views at the top!

nice climb easy for most

Seems easy to use

Great trail with very pretty views of the surrounding Red rock canyon. A lot of the hike is exposed so be prepared to be in the sun. Not too difficult- moderate is a true ranking. Even the drive to the trail head is gorgeous. Would definitely recommend!

Great views during the entire hike up, and an awesome work out! If you’re not in good shape (I’m not) definitely give yourself a few hours so you can take some breaks along the way. I only gave myself about 1.5 hours and I definitely felt rushed to get off the trail before dark. Take your time and enjoy the trip, it’s something you have to do while you’re in the area!

Pretty easy - beware the heat - take plenty of water and sunscreen

Fun hike! Beautiful views of the pines and mountains. Lots of water flowing thru the creek.

Bit more loose terrain than the average non-hiker may be used to. I found it to be very pretty and very short. Great family hike.

very difficult ESPECIALLY in snow. my last year going and my sons 1st year. we did last year lots of snow.

nice trail beautiful waterfall bathrooms inside red rock

If you’re hiking along the gravel wash, you are not on the actual trail (I realized that about 1 mile in.) Once you get to the north side of the mountain, I recommend veering right to go up and over. It adds some nice elevation and leg burn. Be prepared to scramble back down on the east side.

Fun hike. We didn't go all the way to because we brought our small dog. Stopped before the ascent. We definitely plan to do the entire hike--without the dog.

Great hike. Plan 4 hours round-trip, great views of Red rock and Vegas at the top.

It’s “easy”, but prepare yourself for the incline the whole way there. Lots of shade, lots of trees, lots of places to stop and admire the beautiful scenery. There’s usually water at the very end, it was dry to the bone today, bummer. Great hike! :)
