Sunny, few clouds, Friday 1pm 60°, medium traffic. This trail was not easy for me, had to stop on the way up (which I try not to) but a good one. Heart rate for up to 160 and legs got worked for the first 1.4 up then easier along the top also leg got negative workout on the way down. Had to use my walking stick on this one. Great views and flowers blooming with the desert landscape and big boulders. #newhikefriday #rjpathseakers

Amazing trail with incredible views. Can get tricky in some spots and having shoes without grip does not help. It’s definitely doable for all ages, and easier to get down if you use your butt! Regardless, worth it for the views and exercise!

Really cool trail. The scale up is pretty fun and the caves are a really interesting sight. Not rocky and not particularly hard.

Came here at sunrise for a grand view of the valley. Not too crowded, definitely worked hard to get up there. Would recommend poles.

Great hike! Definitely not for beginners and please don't bring your dog(s) if you plan on going all the way to the summit. Stick to the left on the way up. Views were amazing.

This was a beautiful hike. HOWEVER, before reaching the devils bridge there’s a very steep climb on rocks. VERY SCARY! I did it but I wouldn’t do it again.

I think it’s doable for most average fit people. If possible Uber to Echo Trailhead an finish through Cholla, way less bouldering on way down. Go early if possible.

Amazing view. Mentally and physically challenging but definitely worth it!!

Pretty easy hike to see something that I have only seen in many photos. Very beautiful.

great trail, I'd say more moderate for an adult. young children I'd have a hard time bringing them to this trail. careful of moist,wet conditions could be dangerous. very scenic worth the whole home up and down! another one off the list

Great hike! Beautiful views and smells! All the recent rain makes everything so vibrant. Be careful on the way down, there is a lot of loose gravel and it can cause you to slip if not wearing proper hiking shoes.

Another great hike. One of my favorite trails in the Scottsdale area!

This hike was enjoyable. Long, challenging, and good views from the top.

Piestewa however is not a place I see myself returning to very often. There are so many people that hike it and a lot of those people lack etiquette.

With that being said, it is very well maintained.

I enjoyed Camelback. It was challenging, and had good views. I liked climbing up the rocks!

To be completely honest, I don’t think it is super special that I’d want to drive out there often and around so many people of different skill levels. It is a good hike, but to me, it’s a little overrated.

What a challenge! very steep climb and I kept thinking going down would be more difficult, and it was. Had to remove the tri-focals to have better depth perception. I'm and avid hiker in the Rockies and this was tough for me. But I did it! I envy those that can do it quickly and are steady on their feet. I've got a new workout plan for the gym to help with that. 65 and feeling alive! rock on☺️

It was a beautiful hike at sunset. For my second hike it was a challenge (heights/rocky) that I was happy to accomplish.

Nice views from the top. Stairs pretty much the whole way there. I would prefer the loop if you want to see scenery but the peak if you want to see far.

Did this the other day solo despite reading previous reviews it is what they say. Loose gravel, small cacti everywhere, bush wacking, scrambling up wet washes, and the worst marked trail I've ever encountered. If you've never done this then please do yourself a favor and go early in the day. I lost an hour on the way up and almost another hour on the way down. I think going down was almost more confusing. You think you're following your previous trail then you end up almost going off a cliff. no joke. Otherwise the summit was amazing, ate lunch on the bench and signed my name in a notebook inside the mailbox. estimate 5-6 hours total. Bring gloves, snacks, and plenty of water!

AllTrails should probably update their rating system and include expert level, because this one would definitely be that. I didn’t feel this was so much a hiking trail as it was a rock climbing trail. You were using all fours for a good majority of the last mile. That being said I’m from the Midwest and am an average hiker at best and I did feel overmatched by this trail but a more experienced hiker may feel right at home. Be sure to pack water and maybe a snack or two. Also the notion that dogs are allowed on the trail is absurd. A dog can maybe handle the first mile and a half but after that it’s impossible for a dog to go on this trail.

Short hike but good workout! lots of rock scaling.. good hiking shoes and water a must. Took 1 hour going moderate speed to get to top and 25 minutes to go down going fast. No problem with parking mid week at 10 am. This hike wouldn't be fun in the heat. Very steep sections.

Beautiful view ! Start early to beat the crowd and watch the sunrise .

It’s a nice short hike, pretty busy and lots of tourists. Great view. Pretty steep but not that long.

Beautiful hike! The first mile is the hardest.

about 3/4 up, the trail requires climbing up rocks, which is difficult for me (age 77). also my issues with height started be challenging here. These things don't bother most hikers though, and it's a rewarding trip.

Bring a pair of gloves! I brought my fingerless weightlifting gloves and cut up my finger tips. Amazing hike! Take it easy going up there and listen to your body. I thought it would be extremely difficult, but this felt like a moderate hike for me. 3/4ths of the way up was rock scrambling. Also bring good sturdy shoes for traction. Gym shoes won't cut it.

Beautiful trail! We moved at a decent pace and it took about 2 hours (in and out).

Amazing views
