Approximately 5 miles (8 km) south of Carl Hayden Visitor Center on U.S. Hwy 89, just south of highway marker 545, turn at the sign onto the dirt road which ascends the small hill. Park at the base of the hill. Vehicles are prohibited beyond the end of the parking lot at the base of the hill.
Very scenic. A must see while in AZ! Very easy walk from parking lot, which was very crowded towards the end of the day near sunset since it was a holiday weekend.
Such a cool view. Super easy hike!!
Super crowded at sunset but beautiful nonetheless
Worth the stop. It's a very short trail, but take water. Very popular, but worth the small amount of calories burned to see it.
Quick easy hike that is 3/4 of a mile with amazing views and it's usually packed, but definitely worth it.
Quick 3/4 of a mile hike, breathtaking view. Would recommend coming out in the winter to avoid crazy tourist season.
**** dog friendly ****
Short easy trail to something beyond amazing.
The view was breathtaking!
Not a bad trail if you want to share it with hundreds of your not-so, best friends. Extremely busy with tourists. Glad we did it but would love to find a time when it wasn't so darn busy.
