Great hike. When hiking in the fall be sure to wear a light jacket. The weather on top is delightfully chilly.

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.

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.

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

One of my favorite hikes. Just the right amount of length and a good hike for the average hiker. The view at the end is worth the trip!

Great hike. During the summer the fall has little falling water. Late Spring when the snow melts, the falls are beautiful with lots of falling water!

Had a great time hiking this trail today. Lots of encouragement from those who were coming down as we went up. The last bit was a struggle, but we made it! Even checked out the cave after the falls.

I enjoyed this trail, been meaning to do it for several years. Well worth the drive as the temps were much cooler than Vegas. It was very crowded, which is understandable considering how close this is to Las Vegas. Because of this there are "shortcuts" between every switchback. This is ruining the trail. Despite my many efforts, most people choose the more difficult shortcut to the actual trail. That being said, I loved seeing so many people from so many walks of life out enjoying it.

Great hike. So according to my Fitbit, it was almost 2 miles to get to the falls and almost 2 miles to get back to the 2nd parking area. Not sure where alltrails is getting this is only 2.5 round trip. Great hike, steady incline, kicked my behind, but I really enjoyed it.

fun trail!

Nice trail. This is great for a nice hike or short work out at altitude. Weather is usually 20 degrees cooler than the city. From the trailhead parking lot, my GPS watch measured 1.84 miles to the falls, which was more of a trickle. I took every switchback on my way up. On my way down, I took a few short cuts and my watch measured 1.44 miles. Didn’t think I cut off 4 tenths of a mile though. Taking the short cuts can be slippery on the loose dirt. I saw a few people venturing a little past the falls.

nice trail. but the cave beyond is a better payoff

Vegas, easy, fun.

This is a very beautiful trail in a forest setting. You get your heart pumping on the last half. We also got to see dear on the trail!!! Surprisingly cool for it being close to Las Vegas!!!

Best fathers day ever!!! 2018. deffenetly worth the hike.

Nice little flat hike then it gets fun and the views are pretty special. Very easy access/parking.

Lots of switchbacks but otherwise a great hike with some solid views.

Great moderate hike with beautiful vistas. Who knew this was an hour outside of Vegas. Just awesome!

some of the trail near the top needs to be marked better. Other than that great hike.

This is a short, wonderful little trail. Please follow hiking etiquette! People going uphill have the right away. But most importantly, don’t ‘shortcut’ the switchbacks!

This damage leads to erosion (especially when you get too ambitious and end up sliding down on your booty). Use common sense and walk on the trail.

Trail builders and maintainers do a great service. Don’t ruin their work and cause trail erosion for the rest of us. Practice good etiquette and don’t shortcut!

great little hike beautiful just wish it was longer with less people and maybe less cars during week days

really nice hike just not far enough maybe better during week might be less cars and people

Great hike! The trails narrowed down a bit as you moved up the mountain, but definitely worth. This was my first time hiking and I found it fun and the sights were beautiful! There is a cave just a little ways where the water fall is, worth exploring and great photo opportunities. Recommend!!!

It was a moderate hike I did slip even though I had great hiking boots on so just be careful

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.

I enjoyed this trail. It offers a great workout including a little bit of rock scrambling. There's a cool cave at the top next to the falls. Beware climbing up to it, the rock is very slippery. I did the hike early. By 10:30am the parking lot was full and people were parking below at the other trailhead.

I love it, its kind of hard if you are not in good shape but is worth it.

This is a fun trail to hike. Probably would be nice to go when the snow melts--that way the waterfall has more action. It's a popular and easy trail, which makes it a bit crowded on nice days.
