This hike was a spur of the moment hike that we took after completing the White Owl Canyon hike. On our way home something interesting caught our eye and we tried to hike to it. We ended up not getting to where we originally planned on hiking to, but were very pleased with what we found. Although being a short hike at no more than 2 miles, this was one of the most stunning places we have hiked to. To get to the trailhead take Lakeshore Rd. heading East, away from Lake Las Vegas. You will see signs for the Las Vegas Bay Boat Launch which say the launch is closed, this is only due to the low water levels. Follow the signs and drive down onto the boat launch, park at the bottom on the right close to the barriers. Stay to your right as you walk towards the barriers, continue walking straight until you find the beginning of the trail off to your right. If you like fishing be sure to bring your fishing gear. When we went we saw a fish that looked to be about a foot and a half long.
