Nice hike with good shade on a hot day. Perfect afternoon outing after hiking Windows in the am.

Wonderful hike! Just enough water to make the crossings interesting and challenging.

Very nice trail. It is well maintained and beautifully constructed. The views at the top are magnificent!

Fun trail and beautiful views

Go at dusk. The sunset is majestic. Hiking back in the dark is good fun!

Very good hike. Stream running enough to make getting to end both wet and enjoyable.

Tons of fun and amazing views! I had to wade through the river at the very beginning to get to the incline, and then the canyon itself was so beautiful.

Interesting when getting close to the Window, but the first few (and last few) miles can get really hot and feel pretty long.

Absolutely gorgeous view from the top. Super worth it!

Short easy trail, beautiful rock formations!

Beautiful hike! Bears are sited!

It’s was a really fun trail to explore. Beautiful scenery.

Definitely a challenging hike but worth the views at the top! Climb to the very peak if you are brave enough - it’s beautiful! We did this on a rather warm day in September; thankfully it got cooler the further we went up, but the way back we definitely felt the heat. We started at 1030am and we were back around 4 or 430. Total time of actual hiking was about 4 1/2 hours (we are in our 30’s and do CrossFit.. we booked it on the way back..don’t get me wrong though, this was a tough hike!)

Not easy at all, at least moderate. You have to walk at least half a mile if not more to reach the bank then have to walk through the canyon walking over rocks of all shapes and sizes, at one point having to scramble down a group of very large boulder-like rocks. There is no hard ground at all in the canyon, it's either rocks or sand or silt making walking extremely difficult. At the end their is a steep embankment where you can slide down and continue on for a little bit but be warned, you'll have difficulty getting back up, because it's a hill of sand and silt, without help so I recommend not doing it alone. Went when it was overcast and cool and still sweated like it was 100 degrees out. Did not enjoy it at all.

Amazing views. Great trail

Didn't get to complete the trail due to high level of water, but the canyon was pretty. It was also pretty hot even when going early in the morning.

Great trail with plenty of shade along the way & not as difficult of a scramble to the peak as anticipated. Did this trail first in the morning then completed Lost Mine trail.

Good trail with great views. Also saw a black bear from a distance, but it didn't get close.

Magnificent views, and a good chance to see a black bear.

A good decent workout with great views! Saw a black bear sow and cubs. Signs of Moutain lion. Clouds swirling around Casa Grande at sunset were sublime.

Incredible hike. Great for morning. Make sure to wear good footwear and be aware that you may get wet!

Today was my second time attempting this hike. Last year, I hiked it at the beginning of August and it was about 72 degrees. It was breezy, so it was bearable! Amazing views the entire way. The top was the best part. Today we encountered a lot of clouds/ mist, so we only went up to the mile mark. However, just before we got onto the trail, we came face to face with a bear just past the parking lot. Due to the excessive rain/ time of year, the bears are more active (an abundance of berries etc)! One of the best hikes in the park!
