Great first day in Phoenix , trip up was tough but the rain on the way down helped cool us off .

This trail is as difficult as it is rewarding. Almost immediately upon ascending, you get a preview of the wondrous view the peak will promise you. The entire terrain is strenuous, but still doable. It's consistent steps up, up and away. No pets allowed, so it's all people struggling to get to the top. Once at the peak, there are many differentiated flat rocks to sit on and enjoy the 360 view. I intend on returning to have yet another fun day of climbing and cherishing this beautiful trail!

Really enjoyed this trail, it was my wife and I's introduction into hiking and the Phoenix area. Making it to the top is not impossible but is definitely an accomplishment.

I much preferred the less crowded lesser trafficked trails surrounding. Saw a mama coyote protecting her den.

Love it! Great leg workout. Trail is easy to follow. Can get extremely hot in the afternoons... make sure to bring plenty of water.

Great hike!

Don't expect to see good hiking manners on this trail. It's not exactly "locals only", but it is a city hike, much like Camelback. It's great for conditioning and is not overly crowded early in the morning. If it's a nice weekend day, expect a lot of people. Bring at least 1.5l of water in summer

Yesterday for my elevation training I did this course X2 (up and down twice) it was fun and that second lap was tough. But just love this trail for a great leg and cardio workout.
