Trail shared by joseph moyer

Tight switchbacks and a good climb.

Description

Start at Shaded Canyon trailhead. There is parking on the street. This is a tough climb and will make you work. It is well taken care of by the City of Henderson parks and recreation. This trail will take you to the McCullough Hills trailhead, and to Hidden falls park. Both stops have water and restrooms.

Heading the opposite direction. The switchbacks are tight and don't really flow well and the loose terrain and large boulders on the side are waiting for you to make a mistake.
