Small park. Not much here.. can pet the animals running around

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.

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.

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.

The best time is near sunset because there’s less traffic and it’s cooler. You get to enjoy a lot of nature sounds.

Did run into some young kids smoking pot, but got paranoid and left shortly after

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!

Great running path. goes further on bike:run trail outside loop

Fun and easy! Canyon part towards the end is dope.

fabulous

Good solid hike uphill all the way along the wash. We cut off at Eagle’s Nest trailhead but from the road to Eagle’s Nest trailhead it was nice. To bad this time of year (Sept.) the water wasn’t flowing.

Nice and short for smaller kids and dogs

I loved this place when few knew about it. Parents allow their kids to be cruel to the animals who have made this park their home, and the staff is nowhere to be found.

Easy and great fun for families!

This was a nice, moderately easy, trail to take some visitors to for a little hike. They aren't used to the elevation and don't generally hike, so this was a good trail with beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend.

Nice peaceful relatively easy hike. Good intermittent shade for a break when needed. Decent views up and back. Our route measured 3.6 miles. I think we went a little further and a little higher.

Lovely hike

Pretty easy, even for my four-year-old. The path sometimes appears to come to an end, but keep going until you pass through the narrow switchbacks and the valley opens back up toward Fletcher Peak.

The wetlands are great for an afternoon of walking and relaxation.

Don’t let the beginning of this trail fool you. The start may be slow but once you get further in the views and greenery totally explode. The last 1/2 mile was my favorite as you wind back and forth between mountain walls. I also felt this was a fantastic hike for kids as there were plenty of shady areas and places to rest. My wiener dog was also able to complete this hike unassisted.

Great endpoint

This trail is really pretty, the views are awesome! There are confusing parts, and it seems to keep going well after this route ends. I will do this hike again.

Nice place to walk around but I don’t recommend going during the middle of summer, like I did. There is a lot to explore and see, so go when it’s a pleasant temperature and you will be glad you did.

Nice trail with lots of shade. During summer would recommend this for a morning hike.

Trail started off kinda boring, but once you get up to the boulders that you have to scramble up and get up the rope ladder, the trail was awesome. We hiked all the way to the stream up top. Great hike, very surprised. We ended up going over 1 mike further than where the trail map ended.

Excellent trail if you’re just starting back hiking. Lovely views and plenty of shade spots. Good for dogs as well. Would definitely do this again!

Great trail

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.

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.
