Steep climb but not dangerous. First half is steep, dusty, sun-exposed, so go early. After the shoulder it is still steep but pleasant. 2hrs to climb and 1 hr descent. Great views of vegas, canyon and beyond.

Good for dogs

Excellent Nevada scenery!

I love the beautiful scenery and easy pace of this hike. So many trees and nobody else was there.

Awesome trail! A no-nonsense, mostly-uphill approach leads to incredible views and some sandstone scrambling to the summit. While it might be tempting to stop short of the slabs, they are easier than they look and well worth the views at the top.

Note that despite the name, this is not Rainbow Mountain, which is well north (other side of Mt. Wilson). I checked several sources and couldn't find a name for this feature. It seems unnamed.

Also, I'm not sure where Tori went, but we followed GPS for this and it was right on. With our summit wandering, our track came in at 5.5 miles. I'd estimate anywhere from 2 to 5 hours depending on your level of fitness.

Highly trafficked but very fun and great for dogs.

Very rocky but wow the incline is nice!
