Very good workout for the legs. View from the top makes the struggle worth the effort !

Great trail! We went counter-clock-wise, and were really glad we did. There are several (short) steep rocky portions that I would rather go up than come down. Great views! As others have said, there is no shade, and it is 7.7 miles. Very gradual ascent and descent, if it weren't for the length, I'd rate this as easy. Def. recommend.

love this Trail have walked it many times if you walk it clockwise it's harder more up hills nice and scenic

Absolutely beautiful! The trail did get a bit rough, and was confusing in one spot. I had my older son go up to the top of the mountain, to look for more of a trail, but we really couldn’t make out where to go after a certain point.....around the 5/6 mile mark. We decided to come back down, as it was about 4, and we really didn’t want to chance getting stuck up there during the evening hours. Next time we will start earlier, and be more prepared. We are beginners, and new to Arizona.

We really enjoyed this trail. The huge amount of large saguaros was breathtaking. No road noise. Trails very well marked. We went on a cool day (64 degree high) and there was a breeze, so that made this almost easy. We also loved the amount of benches to stop and take it all in, take a water break, have a snack. The only reason this isn't rated as a 5 is the large amount of loose rocks on both the ups and the downs. Wear good hiking boots, and bring your sticks!

It is more of an easy trail rather then Moderate. great views but had to share the trail with horses and Mountain Bike riders which was not an ideal situation,
The trail is very well marked and the entire park is gorgeous, so it's worth one trip.

Hiked with our dogs this morning. A good workout for all. Loved the views.

This was a 7.7 mile trail from the trailhead. I would start right and end from the left. I started to the left and it was a very easy start with a hard ending. Tons of rocks on the end of the trail.

I can’t imagine running it in the summer, but in November this was absolutely incredible. Not well marked, but once you look at the map closely and pay attention to where other trails intersect and divert, it’s pretty straightforward. If I would have had more time I would have done it twice. Pretty rocky in multiple spots so it makes running it difficult, but plenty of runable space. Loved this trail!

Quiet hike on a Thursday afternoon in November. I honestly feel as though I am the only person on the planet right now...ahhhhhh...

Great hike. Beautiful views! On the easy side of moderate. I would definitely recommend it.

Great 7.7 Mile Hike Yesterday! The views were amazing starting Left onto Trail. If you want more of an incline workout I’m told to start Right on to Trail. $7.00 fee/bathrooms at Trailhead. Loved it!!!

Especially beautiful when water is present in Cave Creek. A great variety of shady and sunny trails and scenery.

Went counter-clockwise. Great hike up the hill out of the valley and nice easy descent. Had the place to ourselves early on a weekday. Highly recommended.

Good distance, not much of a challenge elevation/incline wise. The path can get a little confusing at times but is pretty easy to follow if you have your phone.

Great trail. Easy side of moderate, lots of ups and downs. We went in the early morning, and there's a good deal of shade to rest and take it all in. We went clockwise. Although there is a $7 fee to get into the park, if you go to the visitor center, you can get a 3-pass or a 5-pass that takes the cost down to $5 per visit. We will be doing this trail again. This is our favorite trail so far in the area, but I would rate it to be a very easy side of "moderate" compared to some other moderate hikes we have done across the country.

Great biking trail! Connects to a lot of options and skill level trails.

I started at the switchback trailhead. Took me 2hrs 15 mins for the full loop. Beautiful country. Moderate difficulty. Would definitely recommend!

Very enjoyable morning hike! Beautiful changing scenery that offers a great birds eye view of Lake Pleasant Regional Park. Pretty easy for regular hikers but perfect if you want to see the area, get some exercise and don’t have a lot of time.

Beautiful and hard hike. The AllTrails rating of ‘moderate’ is incorrect. The trailhead has it rated as ‘extremely difficult’ which is correct. Lots of steep climbs and it is fairly long 6.8 miles. But incredible views and happened upon a rattlesnake and a king snake. Bottomline, leave early, no dogs for sure due to terrain and difficulty, and be in shape!

Trail needs some work. Actually 7.7 miles.

My pup and I really enjoyed this trail. It took us about two hours round trip; very beautiful views from start to finish. Saw a couple people at the very top, but didnt cross anyone while actually hiking. Some rocky, narrow parts of the trail towards the top but we had no issue with it! We will definitely be going back! FYI there is a $7 cash only admittance fee into the state park.

Nice trail for walking, not a lot of loose rocks. Enough climbs to get the heart going.

With all the zig zagging that goes on , on this Trail and when you count your steps and measure it out it's more like 11 miles rather than just six.

All elevation changes were gradual and not difficult. Great trail for kids!

Good hiking and there are challenges in landscape and following the trail signs. There is very little shade so be mindful especially if you are taking your dog. Your dog must be in shape to get through this hike and there are places you will need to unleash them to get over boulders or obstacles so be sure to have a great recall for your dog. Not a hike for dogs under 50 pounds.

This was a beautiful hike this morning! Great views of the desert or lake throughout the hike. The top is gorgeous! I think my kids would love this hike.

The trail does get more narrow and steep at the end which was hard for this pregnant body, but it’s worth it!

Really good hike and I would say it is moderate. You get the up hill part done first, so that's nice. There are really great views for being in Phoenix. I would definitely go again.

Very nice easy trail.
