Great hike for adults and kids. We saw alot of lizards and one baby deer. It was a bit warm for the kids, defiantly recommend sunscreen.

Great trail with nice views. Some more challenging spots for the almost 6 year old and he was tired fast, and our under 10 set was very tired even with the double back at balancing rock, so I'd call this a moderate to keep short if you have a younger group of kids. Also, we saw a gopher snake; harmless and not interested in us, but I saw a black rattler in the campground the other day, so just be aware. Not a shock of you hike in AZ.

Starting on the left is much more of an incline. The trail is well established; much of it is paved. There's also a lot of information on the surroundings throughout the trail. Every once in s while you get s good view of the landscape. If you're used to the altitude I would rate this as easy.

My wife and I did the full loop and got off the trail a couple of times. Thanks to this app I was able to find the correct route. The south half of this loop is flat and boring but the north half is outstanding. If I were to hike this trail again I would go clockwise from one of the parking lot trail heads and then turn around at a little foot bridge over the water in the cove. It would cut the distance in half but would be a prettier and more challenging hike.

Great trail, great weather. It is too bad you can't swim in the lake to cool off.

Great hike! Very scenic but not too strenuous. I will definitely do it again. For experienced hikers, if you are expecting something difficult this trail is not that.
