Very nice area, we got a bit lost. Maybe due to lack of situational awareness/ just letting the dog pull us down whatever path he wanted! We were easily able to tell which general direction we needed to head in and only added about half a mile to the overall trip. The parts where I know we were on the right trail weren't too difficult but not easy either. great for active dogs or bigger kids.
Good hike, recommend this and any of the others nearby. Rock formations were pretty cool and shade trees were available which helps in warm weather months.
Good for a quick hike close to town.
Nice hike. Lots of shade and beautiful views of the city at the top. Many boulders to climb on and take pictures. A popular hike and a great way to experience Elden without hiking to the top.
great solo hike when you want to get away-but not go too far! Lots of birds, and just enough of a climb to make it feel like I did a little work! Perfect weekend morning hike...
Great one hour workout
Beautiful views and big juniper and ponderosa trees.
Great hike with good views. Will definitely go again.
Good beginner hike for adjusting to altitude, light inclines, decent views when inside the trees. Close to town which makes it easy to get to but also the view isn't that great as you look down on eastern flagstaff. Will be back to hike attached trails that go further back into the mountain.
A good hike, steep in some places but take your time if needed.
