Arizona Bucket List Map

One of the best hikes I’ve ever done. I went weekday early morning and it was still pretty busy.... around 12 it got intensely crowded.
The hike is so so worth the falls though, and I’d do it again any day. You just have to take care when crossing the river... as the trail isn’t marked too well in these areas! Got lost a couple of times but again, so totally worth it.

Parking lot busy. Worth it.

Beautiful hike! Although I would not say it’s flat!

Amazing hike. Switch backed over steams then ponds of water. Rock climbing. Kiddos loved it. I would rate this as a harder hike, more difficult thru some areas. Some slippery rocks. The hike was totally worth it, when you get to the top it is priceless!!

Hiked from upper Bug Spring to the campground over the weekend. We had 4 in our party and 2 dogs. Gorgeous views were an early reward and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed playing in the water along the trail. It does not deserve a difficult rating as it was easy to follow and had good footing. None of the stretches were overly strenuous for any of us, including our dad who is in his late 50s.

definitely more of a moderate, just for length! beautiful views

Awesome hike!! Rocks are slippery. Be careful!! Don’t try to do any stunts by seven falls. Take tram if you have less time to hike. Checked my Bucket list

Awesome trail!!!!

Great trial, not easy but worth the hike

Great trail and easy trail. The Hieroglyphics are pretty cool to see. There wasn’t that much water when i was there but after a good rain it would awesome to see. 90% of the trail was even, and easy to walk on. Gradual incline but nothing crazy. Kids can easily do the trail. Can’t wait to go back!

Great Hike! Almost no shade on the trail though, so the sun can be brutal

Great hike. The hieroglyphs were incredible

Apparently I’m out of shape because it was hard!!! Beautiful hike, wouldn’t do it in summer.

Very majestic place. Very crowded but worth the experience.

A nice hike with family from Oregon. Way too many people so didn’t hike all the way down. It was a little warm but manageable.

Beautiful hike to some waterfalls. I met a lot of people along the way. I started at 8am and got back to the visitor's center at 1pm.

Nice hike today with my husband! He rates it as Moderate. Busy today, beautiful as always! Spotted a Lizard :)

Please be sure to read my
“VERY IMPORTANT NOTE” at the end!!!

The parking lot and trails fill up fast and be sure to bring plenty of water for the trek. There was lots of water at the falls (3/12/18) along with people and even some crazy ones that jumped in above the falls. The incline is moderate and you cross over the creek 5-7 times before making the final ascent up to the falls and was easily done without getting my feet wet. I suggest that you take advantage of any nice shaded spots to stop and rest on the way up. Overall I enjoyed myself immensely and would recommend this trail to anyone. .

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: there are huge flat rocks at the falls that are very slippery. I managed to slip while still wearing my hiking boots, but luckily didn’t fall. So, I cannot stress enough to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL and use great caution at all times. Taking even greater caution if you happen to take off your shoes and get your feet wet.

Nice easy trail on an early March hike. Many Petroglyphs to see at end of trail. Lots of hikers on weekends. Get to the small parking area early during high season (Jan-Mar).

Great hike!

Easy peasy, I guess we didn’t even get to the gardens because we were standing on the peaks of sandstone with amazing views. I like long hikes with elevation change and challenging terrain,but this was beautiful views with minimal effort.

Good trail to the waterfall. Considering that this is Arizona, it was nice to see water although it wasn’t anything to write home about. Overall, I had a fantastic hike!

Fairly easy trail .... loose rocks made it interesting but not difficult. Nice amount of petroglyphs at the end

3/10/18 - pools were full and waterfalls were running! Absolutely beautiful!

Love this trail! Lots of switchbacks, fabulous views all the way down and back, and a great cardio workout. It took me 3 hours total. I wouldn't want to hike this trail in any of the hot summer months.

Great Canyon. We were in awww on how amazing. Water, Wind and time can create such an amazing Canyon. This should be on everyones must do. We did the Lower Antelope Canyon. This cost us 50.00 a person, took about an hour to complete.

Great hike! Very easy but worth the falls at the end!
