This is a beautiful trail up through pines that leads to a waterfall. Due to the - mostly dry - weather here, the waterfall doesn't always have water flowing but, when it does, it is quite beautiful. This is a moderate to difficult hike due...More

My family and I enjoy getting away from the strip when we visit Las Vegas, and so far, this is the best, most rewarding hike we've done to date. Just as the other reviewers mention, it's only 1.6 miles to the top where the falls...More

Don't let the minimal mileage fool you -- this hike will take your breath away along with working your calves and quads. When we went, the water was "falling" according to the ranger. Now, I have to admit that we have seen greater gushing falls,...More

I absolutely loved this hike. It was super quiet and calming. The trail was pretty easy in the beginning and then got progressively difficult. There was a point in the trail where people descending were having trouble and decided to just scoot on the behinds...More

I went in late June and the water was down to a trickle. In March there could still be snow, which would make the trail very treacherous. In other years it could be bare and wet. You'll just have to watch the weather for... More
