My mother, age 72, has hiked this peak a couple times with her hiking club. I was visiting, so she took me and a couple of her hiking club pals to the top. Nice trailhike, great views and beautiful area, despite the new homes. Especially enjoyed the views east into El Dorado Valley.

Quick up and down on a cool, sunny day with a light breeze. Great views all around, and really pretty desert landscape. The sprawling housing developments at the bottom are weird, though, and I wish I could've hiked this back before the development creeped in.

Climbed via detention basin. Easy hike, fun class II at the top. Nice to be able to point to a mountain from anywhere in Vegas and say, "I've been to the top of that". 360 views are absolutely worth the minimal effort to get up there.

I wanted to get out after spending time at CON EXPO and this seemed to be the best option with the rental car. The start of the route is a bit confusing but eventually I figured it out. Take the right hand asphalt path to a small electrical station building. Do not go left to cross the dam but continue across a concrete shallow embankment and then onto the path where a sign indicates the Black Mountain trail uphill to the right. Great views. Met an Englishman on the way down who planned on spending a couple of months in Las Vegas and was excited about all the hiking potential of the area.

The trail to the top is in great shape and it is well signed from the backside of the water cachement area. A quick afternoon hike when I didn't have a lot of time.

This peak is practically in my backyard & am approaching my 100th summit. Enjoyable & fairly quick hike.

Best parking is behind the new Rec Center in Suncity - ~6 space parking lot on Shadow Canyon Drive, w/ add'l street parking available. I'd recommend using the designated path, but several of the other ridges make for a more challenging hike.

Some fun class 2 as you get closer to the summit. Reached the summit from the car in about 1hr 45mins. No wind and clear skies made for outstanding views in all directions. Clear views of Mt Charleston, the strip, and the Red Rock Canyon. At the summit you'll find a flag, and a cleared area with a box containing a climbers log and miscellaneous items.
I'd recommend a late fall/winter ascent of this peak to anyone!

I've been from the N, and by Nevada Mike's trail(s). The south summit (also called N McCullough) is more remote, wilder, and much harder to climb in a short winter day.

Nice dayhike with Sacha, Madeline, and Karen via the trail from the northwest. This peak has a fine panorama of the surrounding area. Warm spring day, partly cloudy, breezy at times. Glad it was not warmer.
