I should have known what I was in for after we had to walk (uphill no less) from the parking lot to the hiking trail! It was grueling, especially with the heavy back-pack I let my wife pack. The rock scramble was a lot of fun. We did a guided rock scramble in Vegas at Red Rock Canyon and as nice as that was, we enjoyed this one even better. You should be in relatively good shape (be honest with yourself) to even attempt the scramble and the 9 mile loop. If you are a large person YOU WILL NOT FIT through some of the holes you'll need to crawl through. I can't qualify what "Large" is though b/c a 275 lbs person might make it... it all depends on body type and where you carry the weight. just beware. No dogs allowed. And I would not bring young kids on this hike either. only 14 and up, I'd say. Afterwards, I felt very accomplished, and the view from the Tippy top is special but the journey up the mountain was even nicer (in retrospect). Tips: Free for Active Military (they would have charged me $15 at the lot w/o my ID); Use the port-a-potty at the lot before you leave. Bring a back=pack but pack light (plenty of water and some sandwiches and a snack). Start the hike out by going left (NOT straight)... you want to return on the Fire Road.
