Kimberly Lewis & Paula Jacoby-Garrett
"Lizards and tortoises and birds, oh my! This trail has a host of wildlife inhabiting the lower portions of the trail. Your dog will enjoy the smells and sights of ground squirrels, lizards, and an occasional desert tortoise. As the hike begins to switchback, you will realize why this hike is designated “moderate.” The climb is worthwhile, though, because the views from the top are breathtaking. You can sit and look at Lake Mead, then turn around and see Las Vegas with Mount Charleston in the background. Be aware that this trail is also used by mountain bikers, so if your dog does not like bikes speeding by, this may not be the best trail for your day’s adventure. Under foot and paw: Dirt."
