Love this hike! We have done it more than a few times! I like the climb and the small valley once your up! The "Thumb" is pretty cool to, love the lookout!

Done this hike a few times! Great time:)

Super pretty views I recommend at sunrise for sure!

What a great hike! It was more beautiful than I expected. Not an easy hike but certainly not hard. I will enjoy this hike again! Traffic was moderate, but not heavy. Great parking and facilities. Volunteer was helpful too before we ventured out.

Very rocky and steep on the way up, but great views and an excellent workout. Definitely moderate intensity

While there's no water, there are toilets at the trail head. It is definitely moderate. Beautiful at the top, fantastic finding the Four Peaks in view, although not a full 360 view.

Beautiful trailhead (no water) and trail. The "Thumb" looked unimpressive from below but is highly impressive up close. The first 3/4 of hike is a steady climb and then it mostly levels out near the top. Highly recommended.

Always a good hike....with friends or solo.

its so cool every time I do it

Great trail

Such a beautiful hike and really invigorating

I like it a lot.

Beautiful! Be hands free as you will need them on the steeper climb.

Started at the Sunrise Peak trailhead and went over the mountain to the Lost Dog trailhead, a total of 10.6 miles per fitbit. Very easy to follow. It ends at the Sonoran Preserve, which is lovely because there are real bathrooms (: this is my favorite hike in the Phoenix area! Gorgeous views and a moderate hike. Good training for canyon hikes.

Steep uphill hike for the first half and great view at the top!
