I wanted to find a place to hike outside of Vegas and someone recommended this trail. Apparently a lot of other people wanted to escape the Las Vegas heat, too. This is a very popular trail and human beings have not taken very good care of it, unfortunately. It was sad to see so many places where people had cut through in order to avoid the switchbacks. The waterfall is kind of a trickle in July. Nevertheless, there are pretty views here for sure, and I enjoyed getting out of the city.

Steep steps, with tight switch backs. The weather is nice at the this elevation when its hot in Las Vegas.
There are some sharp rocks, wear good shoes and cover your dogs feet.

"Mary Jane Falls is an extremely popular hike, for people and dogs alike. Don’t be surprised if you see several groups of hikers, all with dogs. The main draws to this hike are the waterfalls and the fact that the hike is only 2.8 miles (within that distance, you climb approximately 884 feet). For an added bonus, there is plenty of shade along the trail where everyone can catch their breath and relax. Under foot and paw: Gravel and dirt."
Bruce Grubbs
"This is a popular route to a cascading waterfall, located in the head of spectacular Kyle Canyon. It also offers views of Big Falls. The waterfalls flow all year but are at their best during spring after a snowy winter. mountain mahogany, and quaking aspen. Smaller, scruffylooking mountain mahogany is also present."
