My favorite Red Rock hike so far, recommended for beginner to advanced hikers. There are quite a few steep steps, but nothing that is too difficult. Great hike to tote the kids along with.

1.5 Miles of glorified strip mall does not qualify as a trail or activity. That entire institution exists to rob tourists. One might as well give the miracle mile shops a 1.2 mile walking trail tag. This app is better than this nonsense. I tagged this as horseback riding because it's the only category of trail activity that involves hors*$*it.

Absolutely loved this hike. Challenging due to scrambling over some rocks and the further you go, the less apparent the trail is. The view of the Las Vegas skyline at the end was unforgettable though. The narrow canyon also blocks sound, and at one point I think it may have been the quietest place I have ever been. Due to the rocks and terrain, make sure you have the right shoes and get ankle or knee braces if you are susceptible to injuries in those joints. Water of course. Was a wonderful hike and strongly recommend it.

It was our first Las Vegas hike and we loved it! Our 4 year old son and 10 year old daughter had a blast and enjoyed hanging out by the creek. It's a very easy hike and family friendly.

Great trail! I've seen plenty of wildlife and awesome views along this trail. I also went in the rain and saw awesome waterfalls.
