One of the top waterfall hikes near Las Vegas.
Indeed, even the trailhead for Mary Jane Falls is located in a beautiful ponderosa pine forest. The trail climbs a steep 1,043 vertical feet in just over a mile, according to FATMAP (although other sources list the hike as 1.6 miles one-way). Even though the distance is short, the dramatic elevation gain in just one mile can prove challenging for some hikers. While most of the trail is wide and well-defined, the final pitch to the falls is steep, loose, and can get eroded.
Even so, this trail stays very busy, especially when the waterfall is running. Since Mary Jane Falls is fed by snowmelt, the falls are rushing in the early spring and can potentially dry up in the late summer.
For another waterfall hike nearby, be sure to check out Big Falls.
