Easy trail to do with kids, just bring waterproof shoes with good traction.

Did this trail in Feb 2016.
Heading back in Feb 2019. :)

Some steep inclines on the final stretch but worth it. We did it with kids 3, 6 and 8, and they enjoyed the trail

Went today on a Monday around 11am and it was lightly trafficked. There was a sweet parks lady there to greet us and make sure we signed in. She did warn us that a group was recently attacked by a fox but we saw now wildlife while we were out. It’s a nice moderate trail, still quite hot even at 70 degrees. Definitely make sure you’re still packing with lots of water! We saw many unprepared people without backpacks or water bottles... I’m not sure the logic there. The view at the top is amazing and well worth the trip. It’s also a great lunch spot with cool breeze. If you burn easily make sure you have sunscreen!

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

Heavily trafficked; however the view at the end and near the end is awe-inspiring

We actually got on this trail because we missed the trail head for the Wave Cave hike. Glad we did. It is great hike with lots of terrific things to see. Went all the way to the top past the needle. Not for the novice but I would go again and recommend highly.

Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Love this hike. it provided a great workout and the view of Weaver's Needle is stunning. We branched off on Cave Trail to hit Geronimos Cave.

great hike took my nieces alot of climbing up large rocks we really enjoyed the challenge

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

Boring. Easy.

Easy. Good to do on a day when you wanna do a bunch of stuff. Pretty

Boring. Easy.

Difficult hike with steady climb. Lots of rocks and loose gravel/rocks. So worth the 1400 ft elevation change for the view!

Amazing and beautiful!

This was a good, well trafficked hike. We completed this hike in early August and it was very hot. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

My wife and I hiked to Fremont Saddle and beyond to Weaver's Needle. This is a moderate hike, gives a good workout and the views of the Canyon and Superstitious Mountains are amazing. It is a little rocky but solid. View of Weaver's Needle was also amazing. We are in our 60's and had no problem. I highly recommend this hike, will be back

My new favorite trail in the Phoenix area! It's popular, but for good reason. The climb is very gradual over the whole hike and the trail is well marked/easy to follow, so as long as you have decent shoes and are in ok shape this shouldn't be a challenge. We saw some 70 year olds on the trail that were handling it just fine. We hiked this right after a bunch of rain and there was a small creek flowing down the canyon. Head out early to beat the crowds, bring lots of water, and enjoy the beautiful views!

Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

My first trail ever hiked in Arizona and I was not disappointed in the slightest. Every step was absolutely amazing l, you could turn around and there was a beautiful view. I do recommend hiking boots because there are strictly rocks on portions of the trail. Going up took 2 hours with frequent breaks to take in the view. 45 minutes down at a steady jog. The view is absolutely worth it.

Beautiful place to hike and a fun drive to get there! There was a lot of people on the trail and everyone is so courteous and nice and gives you your space. My friend and I went for our first time and only went about a mile since we were stopped by the beautiful landscape. Plan on coming back more and more and getting farther and farther.

Absolutely amazing views from the arch! Take plenty of water. It was cloudy and 55 degrees and I still went through two bottles. I went early in the morning and was at the arch by 9. There were tons of people heading up on my way back down, so I recommend going early. Well worth the hike. This one is a must do!

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

We went with our young kids in 65-70 degree weather. Perfect! The trail is awesome, with some parts like they were lifted from the set of an old western. Before going, we had our kids practice walking single file along an imaginary cliff edge. I'm glad we did for the last stretch by the drop off, because our usually rambunctious kids were well-behaved. The arch is amazing to see, but it's not the most kid-friendly point with drop offs all around. We stayed for about two minutes then turned back.

We went at sunset, and that might be overrated. I'm not sure it was different than any other time of day.
