Great trail! Not very difficult, will definitely be back!

Nice mid length and moderate hike! Some gradual inclines and nice views! Quiet once you're out onto the further part of the loop.

Great trail. Do this twice a month and good combination of scenery and awesome hiking trail. My favorite is when you get halfway there are overlooks of untouched desert.

Good summit with good views of Phoenix, Cave Creek, and Anthem. This hike is not hard, but maybe easy/moderate. All in all, not a bad trail though.

Good, scenic trail. A little busy on the weekend, but once you get out a ways, it's pretty quiet. Very easy and minimal elevation gain. I liked the rusted out abandoned vehicle in the ditch on the Western side of the trail. I also liked the teddy bear Cholla forest. Pay attention when going through this area!!! I would rate this trail higher if I was on a mountain bike!

very nice and relaxing trail.

Great trail for mtbing! little bit of everything from fast & flowy, climbing, descents, and not too many people on it.

First time out on this trail. As an avid hiker, this loop was extremely easy. Although it's a great trail for joggers and bikers. Well groomed for the weekend, novice hikers. Needs more elevation gain..

Awesomeness

Hiked this morning. I would say it's more medium range, not that difficult. The steepest portion is the last quarter mile, even if you're in good shape it'll cause heavier breathing there, but it's only a short stretch of tiny switchbacks. It makes a great morning hike, with a good view on top giving you 40-50 mile radius scenery. The trail can fit two people wide most of the time, but in the last half mile you'll be single file. Hiking to summit and back at a steady, slightly-quicker-than-average pace took us about 1.5 hours plus the time we spent at the summit. I hiked just fine in my Nike Frees.

nice desert hike, enough elevation change for a decent workout, we carry our backpacks loaded getting in shape for longer treks.

Good trail. The loop itself is about 3.85 miles, nice and not to hard. The 2 summits are about .5 up each, these guys get your heart rate going. Not overly crowded, well maintained trail and trail head.

Hiked with Elizabeth and Erick. Nice new area to hike.

Decent workout for heart rate, but a bit too warm on this trail. Very little shade areas on an unusually warm October day
