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

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.

The guides kinda just rush you through. The canyon is gorgeous but I didn't get to really take it in.

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.

Always a Great Hike on Wind Cave! Hiked with friend Stephanie for a Sunset Hike. Beautiful!!! 1-11-19

Good solid hike with some scrambling. More climbing than anticipated.

It is an amazing hike. Summer can get HOT, so be sure to bring lots of water. During the winter/spring the water can be a little high at times BUT if the water at the crossings is up, then the views of the waterfalls become even better.

Awesome hike! As a pretty experienced hiker, this trail was difficult because of the lack of markers. Easy to lose your way if you are not looking up to find blue and white dots throughout. Amazing views at the top! When in doubt, stay left on the way up. Gloves would be very helpful for the way down as you are rock climbing down for the first mile descend. Not for someone who is afraid of heights or is a nervous hiker. Definitely recommend this bad boy if you are in the Mesa/Phoenix area!

This is one trail that we like to hike each year. It is beautiful and not challenging at the beginning, but as you start winding up Pass Mountain the elevation and grade becomes more strenuous. If you have knee issues you must remember that coming down is tougher than going up! It is a great geology tour and we have been rewarded several times coming down in the evening with coyotes barking from down below.

Great long hard hike. Best done in cool weather as it is hot and steep! There are sections of climbing and scrambling back down, not for the nervous hiker.

Really demanding hike. Come prepared with plenty of water and hiking boots. There are times where you will face 20ft rock climbing walls. This is not a breeze in the Park but easily doable with some common sense. Heavily traffic at times. The only downside is that a lot of the trail markers are not as legible anymore or non existent in places hence why I gave it 4 stars. Beautiful 360 views. This hike is definitely a worthy feeling of accomplishment when completed. Don't give up and just go slow. Cheers.

At the end I felt tired. I have done it multiple times. I recommend it to kids near my age. (Owen -7 yrs. old, beginner hiker).

I love this trail!!! A little work out for me but very doable!!!

Super fun! However - it is important to note that from the parking lot, round trip, the hike is 10 miles to the falls, not 7.8 as the AllTrails info indicates. Being plenty of water, wear shoes you’re OK with getting wet, and a hat.

Awesome hike! Definitely not for beginner hikers but not terribly difficult either. Trail isn’t marked too well — when in doubt go to the left. Took about 3 hrs to get up and back.

Very good trail. It’s $7 to get into the park, but if you get a seasonal pass (lasts 12 months) you pay $80 to go as many times as you want in those 12 months. I hike this trail all the time for exercise and I love it. 10/10 would recommend to all levels of fitness

Awesome hike with great views! I saw a few pets and I wouldn’t recommend them as it’s very steep at points.

Challenging to say the least. Views are spectacular all the way up. Caution on the way down. Recommend gloves for the last mile.

Short very nice hike! Even for Seventy year olds!

Really enjoyed this hike! Did it back in May, started early and was able to avoid the harsh heat. Challenging parts, and the views were worth it.

Very easy and fun trail! Great views from the top!

If you’re a beginner like me, here are some things Ive learned:
One wrong move/footing and you can potentially have a serious injury.
Take caution and take your time.
Wear gloves because you will be grabbing rocks to climb. We went when it was cold and it had just rained, so my fingers where numb on top of getting scraped up.
When it’s wet, wear boots where water can’t get through because there’s some puddles. Unless you’re okay hiking with soggy shoes like me.
It’s the most rewarding feeling when you make it to the top. You’ll look back and feel accomplished that you hiked this beast.

Great hike! Did it later in the day which gave us great sunset views on the way back. Love that there is a waterfall at the end.

1/1/19 Snow capped Flat Iron. I had always wanted to do this hike and New Year’s Day was the day to finally check it off the list. What was obviously the most technical part was made even more challenging by a snow packed ice! Even your best trail runners or hiking boots will slip. So worth the bruises though!

Extremely easy trail, pretty flat, you can wear flip flops even (I did). The view is outstanding once you get there, you’ll definitely wanna bring your camera! But beware the vertigo

Good hike up for a good view! Great park area as well.

Wouldn’t consider this a hike- $18 to get in, the trail around part of the crater is for guided tours only and tours were not running due to the cold (20degrees) so all we could do was walk to the observation decks. Crater was neat to see but not a lot to do there besides the small museum and a Subway lol.

Awesome trail. Some legitimate climbing involved. Amazing views at the top make it with it.
