Parking: There is lots of available parking. During our visit the main lot was full, so we drove down a short dirt path where additional parking was plentiful. You can see in the photo below that the first part of the trail in the distance. You will notice there are no switch backs and only a steady incline.

We saw some flowers: Vegetation on this trail is sparse for this time of year. We did manage to see a few flowers along the way.

Part 2: The second leg of the hike is not as bad as it seems. Don’t turn back. We noticed that many that start the trail do not go past the first peak.

Made it to the top: At the Walk around the gates that protect the antennas. Once around the gate, you will be able to see views of Las Vegas and Lake Mead. This peak provides a view of the entire valley.
