lost track of the markers as it was confusing .. I went right when I should have went left right off the start and ended up loosing the markers so I had to turn around until I found a marker... completed half the trail and never got to the look out due to running out of time with sundown.

Awesome trail. Great scrambling involved. This is a great one to take lunch on and stay a while by the creek.

Took my 2yo in a carrier on this hike. What a workout! Had to jump over the creek and got a little muddy. Got a little lost on the way down but followed the trail around and found our way. Very steep and rocky on the way up. Almost fell down on the loose dirt and rocks on the way down. Not too crowded. Lots of frisbee golfers around. Dog poop everywhere. Still a beautiful view from the top and a nice interesting hike.

great hike, fun and beautiful.

The waterfall trail was short and easy, I added the loop but ended up way-finding on a portion of the trail that was covered in snow

Was a great walk end of march the desert is blooming and green.

Great hike! First mile and a half is up hill with lots of scrambling through the chute to the crest. Then down the other side into the Conservancy area. Would recommend to anyone who wants a workout.

Great trail, definitely for fit hikers, no dogs or bikes and don't bring newbies or people unwilling to do some minor no equipment climbs.

This was an expanse of beauty the whole way.  I thoroughly enjoyed all of the scenery.  I didn't see any wildlife, but I  drove this trail on 02/24/2019.  Visiting during warmer months may yield higher chances of spotting wildlife.

Trail condition and vehicle notes: My friend drove his Toyota 4Runner and I drove my 2012 Toyota Tacoma (completely stock/no mods).  We encountered plenty of mud and snow.  Neither of us used 4WD.  We were in 2WD the entire length of the trail.  I actually made it harder than it had to be I by never disengaging Traction control.  My truck has about 9.3 inches of ground clearance.  The trail is pretty easy, clearance would be the biggest issue for vehicles not designed for off-roading.

Nice short walking trail, but far from Las Vegas. In my opinion, it was not worth the drive. I suggest bringing bug spray, the mosquitoes and gnats travel in clouds and are relentless. It was nice to see water in the middle of no where, but you're not allowed to swim in it. The north half of the trail is closed off and dry. I don't plan on visiting again. Well maintained dirt road, any vehicle can drive it. A few camping spots but not much to see or do. I don't plan on coming here again.

Easy trail, beautiful rock formations. Can get crowded, but plenty of areas to go off trail and explore on your own.

Beautiful terrain but can get crowded.

Fun easy trail. Parts of the trail had lots of loose rocks. Seems like a newer trail that hasn’t been worn in yet. Great views from the top. You can find a different start of the trail than is shown here directly across from Grand Sky Ave, which is also a great place to park, with no houses on one side of the street.

Very easy trail. Kids and dog friendly! Small waterfall if you veer to the right of the trail. Nice little hike if you want a quick one.

The town itself is mostly fenced off to keep people from being destructive.

Awesome views! Girls, wear pants or capris...gets kind of brushy and thorny at times. Not much of a trail-gotta invent one. But once you get to the top, it was soo worth it!

Park at McGhies’s and follow Cottonwood Dr up to Cerrito St to gain access to the trail. You can also head down to the fire station for the other entry. Nice hike about 8 miles and 600 ft elevation gain. Lots of areas with up, down and flat to mix it up. At about the 6.5 mile mark, there was a lot of trash which looks like folks are using as a dump site ☹️. Post hike/ride, reward yourself with lunch and a craft beer at Cottonwood Station!

This trail seems to be never ending, and when you look up to the flag at the top, it seems like it never gets closer, but when you get to the top its very worth it. You have a view of literally the entire vegas valley from southern highlands, all the way to Henderson/Boulder City. You can see everything from lake las vegas, to the strip, and the red rock canyon across the whole valley. Very worth the struggle. You Truly experience dead silence up there and its amazing. I did this trail alone and i could have definitely used more than one water bottle. Took off on the hike at 5:05, got to the peak at 7:00, and left the peak at 7:20 to return to my car by 9:00 (PS. I have AT&T and i had service along the entire hike) Also, you will get to a part about 20-30 minutes in where the trail splits and goes straight, or turns the right. If you intend to get to the peak, go straight. I turned right because the trailmarker said “Trail ->” and walked about 15 minutes before realizing it was a separate trail. Wish i knew these things when i departed, but now you’ll all know

Why is it famous exactly? But if you are on the way, why not

great trail with nice overlooks. still patchy snow and slush, makes for mud is some spots. bring good water proof boots.

Good walk, easy for kids. All sun until the waterfall (went after 2pm) then all shade. SO MANY PEOPLE.

We let our dog off leash, bad idea. We were pulling cactus out of his paws in the middle of the trail. After the waterfall we all had a lot of fun. Climbing up big rocks and finding ways back and forth across the stream. And a lot less people after the waterfall.
