Honestly, I went late AF! Got there at like 5-5:15
BUTTTTTT, i feel it was even MORE AMAZING!!!
If there’s anything I could suggest is catch yourself here at sunset, that way you can catch the stars and the silhouettes of the mountainsand trees!

Bring a flashlight!!! But yeah it’s super fucking DOOOOPE! DOOOO IT BROSEPHERS!✊

Waterfall in The beginning of November is like a sink dribbling water lol good exercise though.

Good trail

Lovely park—you almost forget you’re in Las Vegas. Lakes, peacocks, bunnies, and historical buildings. What more do you need!? Dirt trails for mountain biking too.

Starts out as a fairly easy trail, but toward the end of the trail there are a lot of off-shoots that can cause minor confusion. Plenty of shade, and lower elevation than other trails in the area.

Great drive. Hiked calico trail

Crappy trail. We enjoyed the hike but I'm not convinced you can follow this trail. We were three experienced hikers who got off this trail a few times and ended up off the trail before turning around and returning. The only highlight was coming off the trail and diverting down along the edge of the canyon on the way back.

Also, really ticked that the visitors center is behind a paid entrance.

This was an excellent hike for all levels. It’s starts out with a gradual upgrade as you walk through the forest. Gorgeous views starting out. The trail does a switch back that heads off to the right that quickly became quite a bit steeper. The switchbacks made it doable. Our 10 year old daughter wasn’t thrilled about how long it was taking. She did get tired. We gave the option to turn around. Other hikers let us know we were about 15 minutes from the waterfall and cave. She then got determined to make it to the falls. We finally made it and the views were spectacular. The waterfall is trickling off of the mountain right now. Our daughter was super proud of herself for making it to the top. She climbed up a level and enjoyed sitting under the water. It was a great hike for exercise and ended with really gorgeous views. It’s always nice to be able to hike to water. We would definitely do it again. Without kids, you would get a killer workout in if that’s what you’re going for. Make sure to layer your clothing this time of year. When we left Vegas it was about 10-12 degrees warmer. It was cool up at the waterfall as the wind picked up a bit. The Temperature felt amazing as long as you could add or take off a layer. For those that may not be as stable on their feet, walking sticks would be nice. Not necessary, but helpful.

It was a pretty hike, but very crowded. The switchbacks are in pretty bad shape from erosion from people taking “short cuts”. We witnessed many people trying to be “adventurous” bypassing the switchbacks. Not only was it kicking rocks down on people, but also tearing up the earth. Show some respect. STAY ON THE TRAIL!

Beautiful, scenic trail. Took me about 2 hours to hike there and back including resting and picture taking.

Arrived around 8:45 on Saturday morning and were surprised to see hardly any cars. Took us less than 2 hours and we hiked almost 4 miles at a very slow pace. We ended up not going up the switchbacks on the way up (took a left instead of a right at a fork). The trail is clearly marked at the beginning and then the blazes become non existent. Our “trail” up had a very steep grade with very loose rocks. It got us there quick but we really had to watch our steps. Cool cave to explore to the left of the 3 falls (more like trickles...but there was water!). And then we found the real trail to take back down. We did venture off it to check out a cool view and ended up on a very steep, non switchback trail for a little bit. Extremely dangerous due to the loose rocks. Parking lot was almost full when we completed our hike.

Stayed at an Airbnb for $25 in this neighborhood and walked over to this area. It is a change of pace for what you would expect for Vegas hiking/walking. Humid air rises from the wetlands and there can be mosquitoes. Mostly saw families out enjoying an evening walk. Would go again if in the area.

Enjoyed this hike with my fiancé. We had a bit of a time getting up and I slipped and fell. Have proper footwear cuz the rocks are loose and there is no railing. Wouldn’t suggest this for children past halfway point.

Great little training hike with a cool payoff at the end. Mid week is best to avoid crowds. It’s pretty easy hiking, stay on the trail and don’t cut the switch backs, and remember it starts at 7,800’ in elevation so pace yourself until you’re acclimated.

Great hike, don’t forget you are starting at about 7800 feet

This is my favorite hike. Amazing nature, climbing and the colors are beautiful!!!

I actually really like this easy hike because its versatile & you can go lots of different directions & very dog friendly. Some cool views & rock slides at the top.

Great workout & really cool to do via moonlight if you get the opportunity! ✌

One of my favorites on the mountain!

The trail is pretty hard if you don’t have the correct footwear, but overall the view was worth it and so was the absolute silence. Go early in the morning and there’s just no sound. Wildlife is also beautiful, I saw three does on the way up.

Bottom Line: Like walking through Skyrim in real life.

Went with the somewhat-out-of-shape hubby and my 10-year old dog and both were able to handle this trail with ease. There was no water, so we went all the way to the end and I climbed the boulders and kept going until the way was completely blocked without climbing equipment. Very shady, but also extremely crowded on a Saturday, even early in the morning, and hardly anyone kept their dogs on leashes so at one point this giant Great Dane just ran up to my poor dog and there really wasn't much I would have been able to do if the owner hadn't been there to grab it real quick. If you take your dog, keep it on a leash and pick up after it!

If you visit Las Vegas, make sure you go to Red Rock and at least take the scenic drive. It is an amazing place to visit! The National Park America the Beautiful pass ($80/year for entrance to all national parks and monuments) gets you in for no additional cost. The visitors center is very helpful in suggesting trails to take if you are feeling like taking a hike. Nice areas to stop and take scenic photos.

Besides other people on the trail blasting music & the elevation giving me a bit of a headache— this hike was perfect! Easy to follow, family friendly (if you aren’t scared of heights), & a great view at the top.

One of the most amazing views I’ve ever encountered, especially as the fall colors are at their peak. Well worth the effort - not for the faint of heart!
