Tom Cooke Trail to Hole in the Wall
by Paul Anderson

7 Completed 5 Reviews

Once you climb up to the Steamboat Ditch, turn right heading west for about 4 1/2 miles, when the road splits and one trail goes up a steep hill, look to your left at the ditch and you'll see the "Hole in the Wall" Without water running in the ditch you can look into the tunnel and see a pinpoint of light at the other end.

A great hike! Unless you want to add another 1 1/2 miles to the track, drive all the way up to the dirt parking lot.

This trail is rad! It's definitely strenuous as the sign at the trailhead indicates, but it is completely worth the effort. Go on a clear day the view from the top is magnificent.

Charleston Peak - North Loop Trail

Very Difficult. Steep and arduous. Will take an entire day to complete. Do not think the way back will be easier because it is just as hard. Prepare yourself, bring lots of water. Would probably not do this again. Great views, though.

What is the deal? This "trail" is nothing more than a walk along residential streets in Incline Village, as best I can see. There is NO trail - just paved city streets. Am I missing something? And it is NOT a 6-mile loop -- according to my mapping, it is 2.3 miles. (I guess you could do 3 loops?)

We drove the route, then went someplace else.

The Palazzo Resort & Casino to Aliante Nature Discovery Park
by

This is a typical City Cruise in Las Vegas. Goal that day was to checkout a few neighborhood parks. From the Palazzo Resort & Casino to Aliante Nature Discovery Park was the first route. I’ve seen the best parks in Coachella Valley, and sadly enough will not compare to the best parks in Las Vegas, the parks in Las Vegas are way better in terms of landscape design overall. The route was typical like any other big city, where you can see which areas were maintained and which areas have been ignored or abandoned. Theres actually some spots along this route where I’d avoid walking at night. The same goes in Los Angeles area or any other big city, at daytime you can really see which areas to avoid at night. Anyways it was an interesting drive passing the main drag (Las Vegas Blvd), then the highway scene, passing a few commercial areas and finally the residential landscape, especially around Camino Eldorado; the sidewalk on both side of the street were awesome. When I’m visiting any city, I like to visit neighborhood parks to compare and see how they’re designed. Also to see the society what class they appear to be and how clean they maintain their neighborhood and city in general. An interesting car cruise from downtown then abruptly ends at the highway and then gradually becomes pleasant around Camino Eldorado, the transition of landscapes and environment was interesting before arriving at the park.

Aliante Nature Discovery Park

This is one of the parks on my list that I wanted to check out. Although there are 26 parks in Las Vegas the ones I wanted to check out was 1-Aliante Nature Discovery Park, 2-Craig Ranch Regional Park, 3-Clark County Wetlands Park, 4-Sunset Park. Of the four, was able to see two before sunset because I started too late. Aliante Nature Discovery Park turned out really nice.

It’s probably the only park with a waterfall. It’s another large park with a lot of ducks in and near the lake. Note that walking at the concrete sidewalk around the lake is going to be messy because of the bird droppings. Another parks with a lot of lawn that’s green. This park is awesome; you people from Las Vegas don’t mess around when it comes to developing wonderful parks. This is one of the best parks I’ve ever seen. Yep! this park definitely earns a “Wow” factor.

Aliante Nature Discovery Park to Craig Ranch Regional Park

This is a City Cruise from Aliante Nature Discovery Park to Craig Ranch Regional Park. It’s a nice 4.4 miles car cruise. One thing you’ll notice immediately is the neighborhood around Aliante Nature Discovery Park; it’s a really nice neighborhood. As you get closer to Craig Ranch Regional Park the neighborhood become more typical and not as clean. Meaning you wont’ see any trash on the street, unfortunately midway to Craig Ranch Regional Park, it was evident where you’ll see some on the street at some areas. The landscape environment was residential homes all the way to the next park. This route was just unbelievable. Anyway there are many nice parks in Las Vegas, until you start visiting all of them? You really won’t know where’s the best park to go to. You might be going to a park, which you might think is great, until you discover the best park! Then you’ll come to your senses to learn was a horrible park. It’s really interesting to take one weekend and spend a whole day just visiting all the parks in your city, you’ll be amazed what you’ll discover when you have compared and seen all the parks. You’ll never go to that same park ever again.

Craig Ranch Regional Park

This is one of the best parks in Las Vegas of the 26 on the list. Not all parks have lakes, only a few has them and this park in particular is one of the larger parks with a lake. Currently around 50% of the park are enclosed for repairs, probably for renovation? Pretty safe looking park because there were no transients in the vicinity. There’s plenty of lawn and they’re green. They installed some interesting structures that look like sculptures. The playgrounds and covered table areas were clean. It was a pleasant walk around this park before you approach the fenced off area. Walking next to a chain link fence takes away the park experience. There’s not a lot of shading but this park is perfect for walking and jogging. You can easily get a mile walk in just one lap if not two.
