As stated, nice inclined walk for "urban hiking". It's covered in garbage at the top.

This is definitely one of my top favorite hikes in this area! The views are really wonderful and the terrain switches up a lot to keep things interesting. I took my two dogs who are very used to hiking and they started to get a little tired towards the last mile coming back. We went on New Year's Day so by the time we were descending it was very crowded but I am not sure if it is because it was a holiday. Driving up, there is a long stretch of dirt that is a bit rocky so I would recommend going slow or taking a larger vehicle. By the time we were driving off, the parking lot was completely full and people were parking pretty far down the road. All in all it took us a bit less than 3 hours going at a leisurely pace with a 20 minute break for food at the halfway point.

Hike this trail 2-3 times a week. Great trail for work out. Early morning is best time to go

Awesome trail!!!!

Great trial, not easy but worth the hike

Great trail! Not a hard hike, but great views and good trails!

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

The hike is steep in certain parts, especially towards the top. It's pretty gravelly/rocky; wear hiking boots if you have them and it will help on the way down. The cave had an awesome view!

What a great way to spend my morning! The hike part was very nice. The last part before you make it to the cave is a little challenging but very do able. If ever need a morning to see this beautiful desert we live in ... the view from the cave was way worth the hike! Pack snacks and make sure to have water.

Great hike. The hieroglyphs were incredible

Love this trail! It is well maintained and easy to follow.

A must-do. It’s not really a hike and it’s great for children. It’s a Phoenix landmark.

Absolutely beautiful hike. Definitely a good workout. I’d say it’s on the harder side of moderate because of all the rocks. Lots of people recommend looking back, definitely do so! Breathtaking views as you get higher and higher on the mountain.

Very nice trail. Good signposts. Lots of people. Safe area for lone hikers. Incredible views of the valley.

Very easy trail, highly trafficked “trail”. The view of the city is wonderful, however, make sure to take your anti anxiety meds before making the short walk due to people not watching their children close enough. Also, be sure to wear appropriate footwear as the rocks are rather slick due to the frequent use.

Great views from top. Challenging hike, but worth it.

A nice hike. It took about 2 hours to go round trip. Narrow path and fairly busy today but everyone was courteous and shared the path. I'm relatively new to hiking and I wasn't sure what a moderate rating would entail. It was good altho you need good footing and you need to pay attention to rocks and uneven ground. All ages were on the path.

Hiked with our dog. Warnings were up because a fox with potential rabies was spotted in the area. We went counter clockwise which meant tackling the steep section first and the rest became an easy walk. Nice view of Superstition Mountains from the top.

Great hike and very interesting

Super fun easy hike

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

Didn’t get to finish it, but will definitely go back!

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).

We hiked up to the very top past the tunnel. Good fun.

Great hike!

As always I love this trail. Was trying to find the wave cave, but our map wouldn’t load to get it so we opted for this hike! My dog Clark did well, but I’d say make sure you pup is ready for a tough one before you go!

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

This is so far my favorite hike since I moved to AZ (granted I’ve only done a handful). I did it in the afternoon and it wasn’t as hot or as crowed as advertised, so overall a great experience. For the most part it was shaded.
The trail is very easy to follow and a smooth up to the saddle and smooth down again (the elevation “shape” that I like the most). The views are amazing almost all the way!

Moderate hike with nice views at the base of the Superstitions. Great to have this trail out of the Lost Dutchman SP campground.
