Winter/spring best time to go. There is actually nice little watery reward that isn't there in summer

This is by far the best & most dangerous hike over at Red Rock. Took the rocky gap 4x4 road up to the trail. We started around 8:04 got back to truck around 6:12. This includes some stops for pictures and lunch!

We were only able to get to the arch as it was already 3:30ish - Weather was approving fast - wind was over 40MPH then it started snowing, so we were not able to climb to summit.

As mentioned before it's one of the best hikes, but the snow and bad weather makes it a little bit harder. Definitely camping out there next time.

Once you passed the trail signed it's about 2.0 miles. There won't be no more trail, so you're on your own. Follow those rocks guides & arrows left by hikers.

This trail is great. A beginner can do it. I just started hiking and this was a good moderate hike. The only thing that was a bit sketchy was the ropes, all of the ones that we used were in good condition but there was one rope that had just been tied by some people that weren't sure of what they were doing. I'm not even sure if they used it. All I am saying is be careful, pull on the ropes before u use them. Give them a good tug. Be safe.

Great area, however it was hard to find some of the petroglyphs. No signage for roads or directions to petroglyphs. We did a lot of searching on-line to find areas. I recommend a GPS.

The waterfall at the end was awesome! Make sure you go during the winter/spring months so you don't miss it!

The view and the "tank" of water was great! A couple hairy spots with the dogs but not a hard trail!

This trail is so much fun! There is quite a bit of bouldering with the provided ropes as you near the river. Probably my favorite hike in the Vegas area.
