The walk was kinda like a walk in the park. It showed you kinda around town though. It was pretty cool and on the way you will pass a couple of playgrounds. Its a perfect hike for a kids and toddlers to kinda enjoy nature while still being able to play on playgrounds.

This trail-head used to be a railroad, so since train tracks need to be as flat as possible the trail isn't very hard. There is not many uphills or downhills. It was very cool however to see the tunnels that cut through the mountain. To be honest, It would have been a lot more fun on a bicycle.

It should be named “Riadside Truckstop” Trail!

This loop was very fun to hike and I loved the scenic route through the canyon. The trail was a little hard to follow since the trail was often forked (though every route lead back to the parking lot). The canyon trail was super fun with loads of rock-scrambling. The trail took my family (49, 38, 14, and 12 year old) about two and a half hours to complete (family very athletic). There was this one part where the trail dropped down about ten feet creating a slide like formation. This section was pretty hard to get down though our family did it without any scrapes or bruises. The trail is very fun and I will definitely head towards it next time we're in Vegas.

My wife, kids (12 and 14), and I loved this trail. It was hard to follow the trail at parts, but the visibility makes it is easy to navigate around the mountain to complete the loop. It is part hiking and part rock-scrambling. We started with the climb up through the saddle, then came down into the canyon. Both parts were equally beautiful, but the kids loved the rock-scrambling in the canyon. Good, challenging fun!

The views of the valley once you reach the top are spectacular. The early part of this hike is relatively flat. There are some great rock formations as you progress along, even right from the start. The sandy part of the trail is fun. You have to touch that sand it is so soft. As you progress further the trail gets to the rocks and you have a small amount of "climbing" over some rocks. I am a dog owner and love bringing my 2 dogs on hikes. This one, though, I don't think is as dog-friendly. Too many rocks to climb over and once you get to the top there are places too difficult (IMO) for dogs to go. As a hike for people, I give this five stars. Easy to do in a couple of hours and there is plenty of variety in terrain and scenery. It does get crowded after 10am on Saturday and Sunday. Go early to avoid crowds and parking issues.

I couldn’t do this hike unfortunately- upon arrival the cathedral rock picnic area is closed for the season & that’s where you’re supposed to start. Just a heads up!

The first 1.5 miles is open gravel trail that’s not too eventful until you enter the canyon and come upon some level 1 scrambling. Then the trail gets a little unclear once you reach the last half mile which is the majority of the elevation gain. Great views of the Strip along the way!

Very fun hike with rewarding scenery at the bottom. There are eight spots with ropes, that are required to get up and down the trial. Definitely not for beginners but very fun.

This trail is no joke. Brace yourself, this is a very strenuous hike. however well worth it because the end view is amazing.

One of my favorite trails. Beautiful sites to see and a wonderful summit.

Nice hike. however, you definitely want to pay attention as you may get lost because the trail is sometimes hard to identify.

Loved this hike! Starts off easy but definitely more challenging as it descends down through the rocks/boulders where the ropes provided are required. Good hiking shoes/boots would make a difference, we wore sneakers which did not have enough grip or protection. Rewarded at the bottom with a stunning vista of river and canyon with magical hot springs. Easier to hike out than going out n which was s welcome surprise!

Great trail! There are 2 peaks, each with switchbacks near the top. Very steep grade with loose rocks....not a great trail for kids. I would say 2 hours up (then down and up again) with about 1 hour back is the fast pace.

This easy trail had some good views and tunnels, but it was very slow moving. It would be much better on bike.

Seven of us set out on our first hike of the season. We were a little concerned about a seven mile trek as our first outing, but the trail proved to be beautiful and not overly taxing. It was the type of trail that makes you want to come back for more.

The layered colors were amazing. So distinct. The landscape ranged from soft, rolling hills to jagged peaks, which were as sharp as lava rock. The winds were wicked, but interestingly always at our back.

Our group (age range 45 to 60) really loved this trail.

Amazing hike! Make sure to wear good shoes with traction and something that you wouldn’t care if it gets wet.

Peaceful walk, so peaceful that even our kids felt like they had to talk quietly. We went on a Sunday about noon in March, and there were very few people on the way. This walking/running/biking path is in a very nice housing development. The are small playgrounds along the path.

Incredible hike! This is definitely a challenge if you've never scrambled or used ropes before (like me). It helps if you go with a group so you can each other down and up. The hot springs are amazing and making it to the river is very rewarding.

Really fun hike, some rock scrambling and great views at the end!


Cool trail down a wash. Didnt see a single sole, and while only a couple of miles from my car it felt so desolate. Really cool experience.

Awesome colors, hard to comprehend how different areas so close to one another can be.

Overlook for Fire Canyon is breathtaking.

Really fun trail! Was a soupy mess with the snow melting, but still had a blast. Trail was a bit difficult to find in the higher elevation of Peavine due to deep snow, but was able to follow along with the app. The only point that you could hear traffic, was along the southern part that ran parallel with McCarran. Good views of the Reno skyline. Nature trail part was interesting as well. Only passed a couple other hikers; lots of footprints suggest that the peak time is before 5 pm. Parking is difficult for the trail head. I ended up parking in the apartment complex lot. Was happy to see the car there when I returned!

Took the family on this little hike...did about 2 miles...lots to see and explore, saw a small trickling waterfall. The petroglyphs were a hit with the wife! My daughters did great and loved climbing some of the boulders in the wash.

It was an awesome hike. Nice and short and the view of the city from the top is beautiful!!!! Gorgeous multi million dollar houses. Wow!!! A bit treacherous as you go around the mountain top, where the pile of rocks are. Going back to the parking lot, steep rocks and gravel. But, going up the mount was pretty easy.

I always enjoy running on this trail when I come to town. It is well maintained and mostly used by bikers.

Short in town trail. Paved and kind of random. Runs between houses and a marsh. Lots of song birds this morning and only a couple of dog walkers. Trail ends on one side at a shopping mall and the other at a school.
