Popular trail, so if you want seclusion, maybe pick a weekday. Great facilities at the trailhead, maps and decent bathrooms and water are provided. Loads of parking. Moderately challenging accent, luckily this trail connects to a couple others so you can make it as long or short as you wish.

Decent challenge for a trail run with tons of bouldering by and climbing opportunities along the way.

I loved this hike. It is great for trail running, a little rock climbing, and the views are excellent. It does not look like a regular Arizona hike.
Make sure you leave by 5:30pm. I hear they lock the gate.

We went on a cloudy day and once we got to the top it was misty and we were walking in the clouds. It was beautiful. My legs were sore the next day.
