“Great views and a good workout...”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The hike to the top, at over 10,000ft, can be tough but the paths are great and the views stunning. Nice break from Vegas.

“Great place to hike in the summer”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

All of the trails are clearly marked and they give you a very good workout. The temperature is about 20 degrees cooler than it is in Las Vegas. That is why it's a good place to hike in the summer. Red Rock is better for spring and fall.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Heard about this from a friend who was a former Las Vegas resident. She strongly recommend seeing this place. We drove up and was taken aback by it's beauty. It's summer now but it is probably even more beautiful in the winter. Will try to visit again in the winter. Nice easy drive from downtown Las Vegas.

“Beautiful, peaceful location”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Love going here to escape the heat of Vegas; even throw a snow ball or two in winter! Beautiful, great walking trails and a nice slower pace and mountain fresh air.
