Gorgeous trail! Very easy to follow, just take your time when you come across creek beds and look for the cairns. Still a decent amount of water but unfortunately the water fall wasn’t going. I went counter clockwise but would probably go the other way next time because I get nervous on steep rocky descents. Took me 5 hours as a slow hiker with good breaks. Beautiful views for pretty much the entire hike

Great trail - had to only go to the hot springs and turn around from the southern trail (can’t think of its name) because of the ladder at the 3 springs - my dog weighs 75 pounds and is a bit too much for me to carry. But the hike is wonderful. Not completely flat which adds to the experience. And the incredible hot springs - were wonderful for soaking my feet.

A really nice hike If you’re looking for a most of the day walk. We did the loop counter clockwise which worked out nicely as we finished with the steepest part as a downhill and in the shade. There’s still water in several of the shaded and protected drainages. A great hike if you’re in decent shape and have a good pair of boots.

Great hike with a great payoff. Bring some drinks and flip flops to enjoy the hot springs.

1/16 - 7:30am. About the same as my below 1/12 review except a little less overall snow and ice but still slippery. For @ half of it, I wore my crampons. I put them on at the top of the Loop (where the sign is) then I continued.. down the back side. Same as the previous 84 times, I hiked the Loop clockwise, then counterclockwise.

This is a beautiful trail and is exactly as described- a nature walk through various plant zones. Challenging to find if you don’t know where to look. The restroom to the far left is a general direction to go in as you descend behind it - there are signs once you find the trail and it’s well traveled- easy walking on level ground.

I hiked this trail in August 2019. Started out at 4AM, reached North rim around noon and spent the night at the backpacker’s tent site. Hiked back the next morning and finished it again around noon that day. It’s been my favorite hike so far. Will definitely do it again in the near future.

Made it to juniper basin. It’s always fun to hike in saguaro— one of my favorite natl parks.

Great hike! The third river crossing is tricky, look for cairns. Cairning is caring

Really adventurous and fun hike with great views. Did this today CCW. Total 9.23 miles, 1482 feet up, 3:34 time. I’d recommend good hiking shoes and plenty of water. No cell reception throughout most of the hike. Prepare well with downloaded maps and enough food and water. The trail is easy to follow but there are a few sections where it seems to disappear. The app will guide you really well but keep your eyes open around the 4.1 mile mark CCW and when you’re hiking in the creek bed around 6.2. Follow the rock cairns and the app. If there’s a lot of water you may lose the trail at first sight. Next time I’d do this CW. Going CCW you end up descending all the technical rock section on the last 3 miles. I’d prefer climbing that. My toes and knees took a lot of abuse today through the rocks. Be sure to stop for pictures. Some great views along the way!

We took the trail the wrong way and had to fight the uphill sand on our way back to the car - it was horrible (we are also inexperienced hikers) but if you were to go the right way it wouldn’t be so bad! It is gorgeous and completely worth the hike. Be careful and don’t put your head under water! There’s brain eating water amoeba. Gorgeous scenery on both ends of the loop

Finished in about 8 hours. Started at 7:15am ended around 3:30/4pm. Full from south khabib trail to phantom ranch and back up bright angel trail. Best hike of my life so far

Did trail on 1/16/19, caught the first shuttle and started on trail at 6:10. Used crampons for the first 1.5, puffer jacket and two under layers. By the tine we got to tip off I was wearing just the bottom base layer. Spent some time at the bottom to eat lunch and explore, checked out pipe creek beach on the way up and made it out at 4 o’clock. The last three miles are the hardest of the day. No water on the south kaibab trail, water at the 3 mile and 1.5 mile resthouses are out. Just used a 3L camelback that I refilled once, few rx bars, trail mix, beef jerky, electrolyte packs, and skittles was more than enough. Pack as light as possible.

Beautiful hike today up Phoneline and connecting to Sabino Canyon Trail, Only saw two others on way up, none on hike out. Used the Tram Road on return to parking area and Sabino Creek was flowing over six of the bridges, and very high volume over two of those six. Early morning start makes for completely shaded trail for first four miles on Phoneline, very helpful in summer months.

Great trail! Did it 2 weeks ago and there was a lot of water flowing. Had to cross probably 15 times. It was easy to spot the cairns on the opposite side of the creek (is it a creek?) so you know when to cross. The boulder canyon portion is quite overgrown, so long sleeves and pants are a good idea. We both clocked in at 12.6 miles and we stayed on the trail. Would definitely do this one again.

Absolutely beautiful!

Nice hike.

Ran out of time today to make the summit. We will get an earlier start next time. Lots of water running in Boulder Canyon, with nine, easy, rock hop water crossings. Great hike, looking forward to to doing it again soon.

Wonderful springs! Be warned of naked bathers. I've been to many hot springs, and am always prepared to encounter nudity. It's not usually a problem. However, the middle pool at these springs had a flock of much older and very aggressive nude male bathers. It was uncomfortable.

1/12 - 8am. First clockwise and then counterclockwise. I put on my crampons at the top of the loop (where the Elden trail t's off) Going down the back side was pretty icy. I saw several deer and a fairly big Buck. All in all a pretty fun hike.

Great trail, we did not know what to expect, apparently it is not recommended to do the trail in 1 day. We did walk down to the river and back, the only open water spot is 4.5 miles in. Eat lunch by the river was definitely worth it We are 28/29 years old, not professional hikers but we wanted to do it. Started the trail at 7:30am, we were at the river 11:10am. All in trail with all the stops etc took us 8hours and 45 minutes, we can not walk fyi. We were wearing regular running shoes and did just fine all though the spikes are preferred first 1-2 miles as it is icy 16 miles roundtrip, absolutely exhausting but most definitely worth it

Twas an incredible journey into, and out of, the canyon. I recommend this gorgeous hike to anyone with drive and endurance. Ill advised for those with weak knees due to the steepness and unsure footing the majority of the hike. Worth every step!

Rode my horse out on this trail...a few large rock areas to navigate...but horse did fine. The views were great

Beautiful trail! Perfectly varied landscapes. We did it clockwise (big climb first, smaller ones towards the end). Highly recommend doing it this way. We did it yesterday and there was still a decent amount of running water, even at the small waterfall! Keep an eye out for wildlife as we saw some bighorn sheep! Will definitely be returning for more hikes in this area!! Also, the forest service volunteers were super friendly and offered some great trail advice. It’s definitely worth talking to them if you’re new to the area.

Had to park in the overflow lot 0.2 miles away. Very nice hike.
