One of my favorite trails! Amazing views, good workout, not difficult. It is a bit rocky, so be sure to wear boots. If your knees have trouble on a steep decline, start on the left side of the loop. It's steeper and a good glute workout then the return is a bit easier.

Great trail! The people of AZ are lucky to have this. Lots of rocks, so wear your hiking boots. Next time I'm going right when I face the trail head. Left seemed more hilly ;). We went at 10 am on a cloudy day (in the low 50s), and it wasn't too crowded on the trail. Tons of people were starting as we finished. I see why it's popular.

Great hike! Our two HS aged kids had a great time experiencing a world outside the flat Midwest. Challenging enough to make it interesting. Beautiful views. Finished before it became too crowded.
