We visited the Mount Charleston area on our recent trip to Las Vegas. The drive out into the mountains is beautiful (around 1 hr drive) and once parked at the trail head the hike was about 2-ish miles each way. I would say for someone...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

Depending on your fitness level, this is a moderate hike. It is a steady upward climb with switchbacks to a small waterfall (depending on time of year) and a really cool cave. Be sure to take a picture from inside the cave to the mountains....More

Decided to get out of down town and see some nature and snow. The trail did not disappoint! At approximately 8600 ft the temp was 33 degrees, plenty of snow and water coming over the falls. Be sure to bring plenty of water to drink,...More

Solid hike with plenty of elevation. Plenty of switch backs and trail maintenance is pretty good. Excellent views overlooking a great park. It's hard to believe this is surrounded by desert. The waterfall is a trickle most of the time. It's a great two hour...More

There is a dedicated parking lot at the base of the trail, including restrooms. There is a paved road up Kyle Canyon to the parking lot. From there the trail is first an abandoned gravel road for less than a mile, then... 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
