Nice incline on this trail. Good workout. Scenery is nice especially when you get up into the mountain. I am new to hiking, this was definitely beginner friendly. Will do this trail again.

This was a great hike. The wind was blowing and the views are amazing. I was happy to see that it had water at the top. The only thing is this is not an easy train. I would say more moderate.

Perfect trail for running except it can get a lil congested.. Not too difficult at all running or walking. Hardly any incline but very rewarding once you hit the top. Very cool to see old hieroglyphics!

Trail is well marked. Saw numerous animals/snakes. A lot to see on and off the trail. Take the time to set on the rocks and look back at the valley. Bring water.

Awesome

Decent hike, if you go past the waterfall and water pools the trail gets a little thin and a little more tricky but way worth the views back there, we so a mountain goat staring at us from the cliffs above. Very cool!!

My husband and I are first time hikers both 30yrs old. My husband carried our 1yr old in a back hiking pack the whole time (he's in better shape than me). This was our second time on this trail it's harder than you think very rocky in spots and lots of incline. You need to get there early there is zero shade and bring water! Beautiful site seeing up top being surrounded by the mountains. Lots of bugs toward the hieroglyphics. I would say it's more of a moderate trail than easy.

My wife & I have hiked this trail a few times this last trip we took a good friend who hasn't been before and had a great time, this like is rather easy but will get the heart rate up a bit as well, great for the family.
