amazing hike done MLK weekend 2018. view at the end is beautiful

Short and easy for the experienced hiker, but diverse rock scrambles offer stimulation for everyone. A great ascent for being so close to town. Lots of traffic means plenty of friendly interactions, be patient and remember right of way rules! Early January hike meant cool temps, take that into consideration when I say it only requires .5 liters of water.

Trail offers great views and an amazing scenery. My girlfriend and I were able to do this hike quite easily and we are not regular hikers. Going to see and experience the inside of the Soldiers arch is well worth the entire hike. The 7 sacred pools are pretty cool too. Good hiking boots/shoes are recommended since there are a lot of rocks and mud that you can step on/in. Great hike and will definitely make this a yearly trip!!

Nice hike and can become busy with mountain bikes down a particular stretch. Trekking poles or walking stick suggested after a recent rain due to slippery rocks. Beautiful landscape.

Beautiful view, at the end! This hike does require a lot of rock climbing and can be a bit slippery. Make sure you wear hiking shoes for good grip. There were a lot of people who brought their dog along for the hike, but they just have to be on a leash.

Climbing up the mountain was a bit of a challenge and may appear scary for those afraid of heights. I thought I wasn’t going to make it up at first and freaked out when looking back down.. but I manage to push myself to the top. Surprisingly the way down seems a lot easier.

Parking day pass is $5.

P.S. don’t follow strangers down a different path.. you go up and down the same way you came from.

Terrible parking, very busy trail and a lot of people don’t pay attention which makes some areas dangerous. I prefer echo.

Must do. Moderate to difficult climb but the view is incredible!

Challenging hike with steep grades and deep steps. The footing is rocky but not the worst. There’s no shade on this trail and it can get windy up there. Great views of Sabino Canyon and Tucson.

Requires a bit of effort to scramble up some rocks but the view is worth it! Tried to catch the sunset up top but some of the surrounding rocks blocked the direct view but it was still beautiful! Would totally hike again

Did this trail this morning , definitely not a beginner hike for the faint of heart. Worth the view once you get to the top

This hike was so much fun! A quick little hike with some climbing, but not too difficult.

Great trail with great views! Whole family loved it and got great photos.

Short hike with moderate difficulty. The view at the top is PRICELESS. Defiantly an awesome trail!

Second time to hike this trail. First time was last July and the temp was 103. Bad idea but I survived! Second time was Jan 9 and temp was 70. I love this hike and if I was local I would hike weekly.

Really easy hike. Can be done within an hour. But does have some pretty great views.

Loved it. Remember to bring lots of water...it’s basically a rock scramble the whole way up after the “plateau” overlook vantage point.

Trail was a little busy when we went but absolutely beautiful. It is a lot easier than the other trail at Camelback mountain so if you have bad knees 10/10 recommend

Easy hike that doesn’t take too long. Only a few good views but those few views are awesome. Ends at a T intersection with another trail. Definitely worth the hike.

Great challenge

It was awesome!

Did this hike in early January on a Tuesday morning. We started about 8am. Note there is no parking by the trailhead. You need to park on the road about .5 mile away. Beautiful hike but a bit advanced towards the summit. Well worth it when you get to the top. Started getting crowded on the way down. So start early.

Fun hike basically within the village. Have a hotel literally only 3 or 4 blocks from the trailhead. Definitely worth doing.

Beautiful trail. Got started around 9am and barley ran into anyone other then locals. Had a great time. Must do!

Great half day hike. Amazing 360 views of the city of Tuscon and the canyon and valley. Out and back took approximately 2.5-3hours carrying a 6month old on our back. The trail is very well maintained and is a gradual climb. Very straight forward hike, not challenging just a steady climb. Good for all ages and hiking ability. I would not say this is a hard climb just a steady one. Views are worth it.

Gorgeous hike and suitable for all skill levels! The beauty of this hike is in the options! if you do not feel like a climb to the "end of the trail" the sweeping vista views are 360 degrees and available basically from the bottom/parking lot. We were lucky and came at around 3pm and got a parking spot in the small lot off back o beyond road and took our time climbing as high as our girls would allow us to. When it became too busy near the top we just stopped and snacked and took pictures. What an amazing way to spend a few hours!

1/6/19 - Quick and easy hike. Rained before I hiked it so some of the rock surfaces were a bit slick. My buddies were burnt out because we did a 14 mile hike in the Grand Canyon the day before so they waited in the car for me so I pushed it hard and made it to the summit in 17 minutes. Enjoyed myself a few views and pictures and luckily for me a rainbow popped out of nowhere which was awesome. Made it back down in about 15-17 minutes again taking caution going down on the slick rocks once again. All in all did the entire thing in about 45 minutes which was rushed but still a great enjoyable hike nonetheless.

This was a pretty okay trail. Good elevation gain to reach the loop. FatMan’s Pass and the Natural Tunnel were very cool and worth the trip alone. They are counter clockwise off the loop, fyi. The trail was very busy. You park on the side of the road. When I returned to my car, several other cars had a window that had been broken. I’d go back, but just for the Pass & Tunnel.

Awesome hike! Be warned its goes up, up, up but once on top there is so much to explore. Beautiful but very busy with people. dogs and bikers

Beautiful hike throughout. Good mix of woods and open space! I did it in the cold rain which I don’t recommend but it was still beautiful. Be careful though because it’s easy to start heading the wrong direction so pay attention! It’s easy to realize and find your way back on track at least!
