Know and understand the following classes of hikes. Be sure you’re comfortable with the posted class before signing up. Most hikes posted with classes 4 and 5 typically only have small sections with those levels, but it’s important to be prepared to handle those areas. If you’re deathly afraid of heights, you might not want to attempt hikes with class 4 or 5 sections.
Class 1: Walking with a low chance of injury.
Class 2: Simple scrambling with the occasional use of the hands. Little danger is encountered.
Class 3: Scrambling with increased exposure. A rope can be carried but is usually not required. Falls are not always fatal.
Class 4: Climbing with exposure. A rope may be used. Falls will likely result in severe injury or death. Not for those afraid of heights.
Class 5: Technical free climbing involving harnesses, rope, belaying, and other protective hardware for safety. Falls will likely result in severe injury or death. What’s exposure? This refers to being in a location where there’s a lot of open air below you. In other words, if you fall it’s a long way down. Trails typically have minimal exposure unless it’s beside a cliff. Scrambling can have minimal exposure or a lot of exposure depending on the specific spot.

I am an outdoor enthusiast who would rather be on a backcountry backpacking trip than a stroll on the beach (although I do love the beach!).
Living in Las Vegas has afforded me the opportunity to easily explore the Southwest region of the United States.
A nature lover, I am often found at the end of the pack taking photos and videos of the wildlife found on the trails. Colorful flowers, desert animals, and unusual geological rock formations are often the majority of my photos.
