Totally amazing trail! This was our first hike in about 5 years and we are not in the best shape (getting back into hiking is part of our get back into shape plan). This hike is perfect if you want to push it pretty hard but don’t want something crazy hard.

Great trail, basically a walking tour of Red Rock. I've done it clockwise and counterclockwise and don't really have a a preference on which is the "better" way to travel the loop. Clockwise gets the "boring" Jeep trail out of the way and leaves the scenic Calico portion for the end. Counterclockwise gives you a great scenic start and ends with an easier return on the Jeep trail. Can't go wrong either way. Pretty easy to follow, can get a little hard to find the trail when it intersects with the trailheads but nothing too frustrating. Definitely recommend waiting for cooler weather to do this hike.

As others have said, it's a well-defined trail up a beautiful part of the Spring Mountains. I stopped for a break here on my way down from Mummy Mountain. The trail is well used but I've never seen it get "busy" like nearby trails do. The springs are in a nice shady portion of the trail and were still trickling; the water is cool and clear, but you'll probably want to filter it just to be safe.

Led a group of co-workers for a little fun weekend outing; all skill- and endurance levels were represented, and we all got up to the top just fine. The trail gets busy and some parts are in open sun, so I recommend an early start. It's a beautiful trail with a great viewpoint.

I'm from Vegas and my sister and I would do this hike a couple times every summer. If it's in the summer, though, you should make sure to get an early start because there's no tree cover until you get to the slope of the actual mountain and even then, it's just some short and pretty sparse junipers. The hike is long and the "trail" becomes less defined as you get closer to the slope of the mountain, so my sister and I would usually end up taking whichever route we wanted that given day, often the wash that was still shaded by the peak. The view at the top isn't great just because visibility isn't great, but otherwise, getting to the top feels pretty good. I would recommend this hike to anyone, just make sure you bring plenty of water!

Awesome hike. Did this on Black Friday and it was still pretty warm outside. All of the ropes used to help you go down or up seemed to be in good shape. The view of the river and the dam/bridge is a great backdrop to a lunch break.

Easy to get lost on the way back cause of all the side trails, but overall great hike really felt it in the calves.

It was a fun trail. It was a bit narrow for a full size truck, but still doable. I was disappointed that Hunter Lake was a green field. I would do it again in the spring.

Hiked it yesterday. Beautiful every turn and not very traveled especially once over the pass. Trail conditions very great. a must hike if you head to the Ruby Mtns.

Spectacular - may all of your switchbacks lead to amazing views! ~ 5 hours in and out while spending 30 minutes at the summit and occasional resting. Hit the trailhead around 8:30am - starting a little earlier may have been better. Summit was perfect - nice wind, felt like 70’s..

This trail was more difficult than moderate in my opinion. It was also 6.6 miles and not 6.3. It is a gorgeous trail full of surprises. The views close to the top are breathtaking! I definitely wished I could have jumped in the pond due to the heat but the water looked pretty gross. I will be doing this trail again in fall when it cools down a bit.

Beautiful hike. Plenty of viewing areas all along the way. Definitely need extra water and snacks. Waterfall is a great treat at the beginning of the hike. The rest of the hike to the summit gradually became more difficult, definitely worth going to the top. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Perfect long hike! Make sure to bring plenty of water and food. We needed more. Took us over 5 hours. Great experience.

Good trail but be careful! I’ve had two bear sightings in the last two weeks.

New hiker and this trail was absolutely beautiful. The views are amazing. It was challenging for me at first but once I got past the .90 mile it wasn't nearly as difficult.I was a bit nervous going by myself but got there at 7:30 am and there were quite a few people there. Very friendly and their dogs too! The hikers with pets took very good care of the trail. I was pleasantly surprised as other trails closer to Reno are not as clean. I will be going back very soon. This is one of my favorites to date.

I’ve hiked this trail many times (Also called the Powerhouse trail or Talbert trail). This trail is somewhere around 15 miles long and I believe it ends at Verdi lake. Personally I’ve done 6.5 miles on this trail and while there are a few areas after the 4.5 mile mark that aren’t well maintained, it is a great trail still with awesome views.

I hike this trail to the bottom of the waterfall and then up to the top of the waterfall at least 2 times a week. Love it!

7月13日、日曜日に頂上に行きました。滝まで1時間、さらにそこから頂上まで2時冠程度かかりました。何種類もの鉱山植物やお花畑が出迎えてくれます。花の香りを登山口から頂上まで楽しみながら登れる、非常に美しい山です。滝周辺は湿原になっており、天然のイングリッシュガーデンのようです。
大好きな山の一つになりました。

Beautiful trail. Recommend going mid July to see the wildflowers

So hard. I in no way completed the trail. I did 3 miles in and 3 miles out. Really pretty. Gotta work on my cardio so I can try again lol

We enjoyed the trail but it started pouring rain on us and thundering so we ended up freezing but we would recommend it. :)

An incredibly beautiful hike! The wildflowers are blooming, waterfall flowing, and snow is gone. The first section of the hike to the waterfalls is very easy! The second section is quite challenging. A lot of elevation gain with steep hills. I recommend hiking poles. There are sections with loose rock and dirt. Well worth it when you get to the top! Give yourself time to acclimate to the high elevation. And btw the bathrooms at the parking are closed!

Surprisingly nice little walk through the Damonte Ranch Wetlands. This easy 3 mile paved trail is a great spot for birding. Also, the best playground I've found in town would make it a great place to bring the kiddos.

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

HORRIBLE! Worst idea to hike up with a 40lbs of packing. Will not return unless told otherwise

Holy cow. You gotta WORK for this one! Made it to the arch, but wasn't able to go any further due to a thunderstorm that closed in on us fast as we traversed up the crack below the arch. Just enough time to get up, take a few pics, and get back down. Started pouring just after we climbed back out of the final chute on the return. Will definitely be coming back to summit.... Two things: 1- I've got a stock Ford F150 with BFG KO2 and made it 2 miles into Rocky Gap Road without a problem. Making it to the TH with factory clearance could be an issue, but it's possible to take off at LEAST 4-5 miles round trip in a stock vehicle, driving carefully. 2- the more "technical" portions of the hike (last half mile) feel really sketchy - worse than they really are. If you're uncomfortable outside of the crack on the excited face, you can crab your way up/down the crack slowly and safely. Total stats today: 12.1M, 3,562 elevation gain (parked truck 2mi. approx up Rocky Gap, to the arch - not summit), and 6h27m r/t. Good luck!
