The climb is steep but the terrain easy. The views are unusual and amazing: lots of big rock formations. Overall a great workout!

Did this in the rain this time around, but still one of the best trails in Scottsdale. You have a view of the mountains for most of the way up (as opposed to golf courses at the nearby Pinnacle Peak hike). Good quick hike, around 2-2.5 hours round trip.
