This might be my favorite. Great workout. If you go the correct route the gradual downhill is exhilarating. Great views of the valley and Mt. Rose. The creeks and streams are amazing. You will have to cross the creeks a few times but nothing hard. Overall it's the best.

This trail goes is incorrectly mapped and goes further than raintree. Raintree is the tree that stands over the junction with Mummy Spring trail. I was a little confused how this could have a harder rating than Mummy Spring when it is 9/10ths of Mummy Spring. After you pass the bald spot, be sure to take the switchbacks nice and slow. Well trafficked, amazing views, be sure to check the forecast during monsoon season though, storms and lightning are pretty much guaranteed if moisture is around (July-September).

One of the best trails. Bring Water and snacks if your going to the top.

after the third attempt we made it. 4.5 hours in total with a few doggie water breaks. best if done in the early morning so there is shade before the sun comes up. take plenty of water for your 4 legged friends. the most certainly need it.

A perfect conditioning hike. Suggest starting up to the Church's Pond junction then continuing around clockwise.

Lovely hike with beautiful views. Limited parking, so better to get there early. We didn’t think the mountain bikers were obnoxious, but it was nice to know we would encounter them along the way. Entire way there is uphill. We are averagely fit people, and it was a moderate hike for us. We’ll be coming back again!

The views are so awesome! Before the switch backs you can see Lake Mead!

Great trail for horseback. We also believe we heard a bear in the woods and did see some scat.

There a couple of streams that we had to walk the horses through as the bridges are narrow and I am not sure they are rated for a horse.

Highly recommend this loop, and ample trailer parking at the trailhead.

Went to the waterfall first - not challenging at all, nice to sit by the water though. Went back down and started the upper level. This was pretty challenging but very scenic at points. Looking over the city was great.

Good moderate trail to begin your day! Nice and cool with wonderful breezes. Get there early, trail head parking limited.

Excellent hike. Enjoy an easier 5 mile loop to the waterfalls and back, continue to the summit for the challenging part. The views are worth it at the top. Take lots of water and snacks.

Great 13er hike! Started at 6 am and the summit just after 8. First mile is flat and scenic. Next mile has a little incline and then it gets serious. Last mile was fairly steep but switchbacks. Very well marked trail. A lot of traffic on the way down. The detour to the lake is worth it.

Fun hike for the whole family with a waterfall reward at the end! We will definitely be doing this one again. I agree with many of the comments posted, go during early morning or late evening, the sun is brutal throughout most of the trail.

A very rewarding hike. We did it with our 8 and 5 year olds, so it was a slower pace for us. The views were amazing. The greatest reward was how delighted and proud our 8 year old was to reach the summit. It really was a very steep uphill climb the vast majority of the way up. Other reviews describe a more level middle part of the hike up— there wasn’t much of that, to be honest. But really, a fantastic hike. So glad we did it.

Perfect for cardio and leg workout while surrounded by ever chhanging stunning views

Beautiful view (I went mid-August) regardless of the weather. Doesn’t get much better than a day with no clouds and high 70 degree weather. Takes about 20 minutes at a slow walk to get to a view of south lake, and then a 15-20 minute slow walk without an incline that looks over Carnelian Bay. Great little walk for families and people who want a great selfie photo.

Love this hike! Nice for an evening stroll with the pup. Second half is quite a bit steeper than the first but at only 1.5 mi round trip, it took about a half hour.

This is an easy hike, not moderate. It's a good beginner trail or if you just want to do something easy; and see the Vegas views at the top.

Nice easy hike. Good for people who are trail runners. The trail can have high traffic, since it's a popular one.

Easy to start off.

The trailhead is easy to miss as it's basically a pull off area right next to the road. The beginning of the trail is well marked and easy to follow. A sign says it's a 1.5 mile in and out trail. I'm not sure where the trail actually ends. It went from wide enough for two people to more and more narrow. Eventually I think we were blazing our own trail. The well defined portion of the trail was long enough that you could still get a nice walk in without having to make your own trail. We walked all the way to the base of the mountain. Despite the lack of defined trail, I would certainly give this trail again.

Great hike. moderately challenging, as I had to rest three or four times at the switchbacks. pack plenty of water. amazing view at the end.

Great trail. Some inclines, but not too gravelly or potentially muddy. Lots of flats to counter the inclines on the ascent. Not as "Mountain View Scenic" as Mary Jane or Trail Canyon, but nice for those who like a look at the flora. Hundreds of beautiful pine cones on our hike.

very steep. takes you right down to the lake. gorgeous views. I would not take my dogs as it is very steep but our daughter (9) did great. take lots of water and sunscreen. a picnic at the bottom is fun or just hop in the lake. there are two protected coves on either side of the trail.

This is probably the most beautiful scenery I've ever experienced on a hike. The trail is just hard enough to get a great work out in without being too difficult. I went after work and made it to Lamoille lake in about 75 minutes.. The only downside was all the mosquitos at the lake. The fish were jumping so much it looked like the lake was boiling! I didn't stay long and made it back to my car just before sunset. I will definitely do this one again!

Gorgeous views from a well maintained trail. Lots of switchback make this a relatively easy climb. The waterfall is definitely a highlight of the hike!
