It was a very difficult trail towards the summit. It was totally worth the climb, and I felt very accomplished after the climb.

First time doing this trail yesterday, and loved it. Definitely challenging and an excellent workout, the views from the top don't disappoint.

The top was worth every hard step I took. I’ve heard of the staying to the left but knowing me I ended up in the rock climbing trail that was very difficult but lead me to the top. A beautiful trail with great views. Take lots of water at least 3 liters and snacks. Have fun!

Respectable short hike but too much traffic and not much variation along the way.

Got stopped by search and rescue on the way to Whiskey Spring Red Tanks Miners Canyon Loop. Planned to do a over nighter there. Search and Rescue warned us not to go out there. They had said it is inhabitable and totally overgrown. So they advised us to do Weavers Needle and it was great.

Even having a physical hard copy map and the AllTrails App open the mileage markers are off. We ended up taking Peralta Trail up to Weavers Needle and camped out off the trail. I posted pictures of potential Weavers Needle back-country camp sites (see my completed list in the profile if you are planning to go back country camping). Great views around, it was a amazing time. It would be my luck though that it would rain. Which lasted 15 hours making the rocks in the morning slippery. The trail has lots of lose rock and minimal cover from the sun. I would agree with others in bringing enough water. Would definitely go back was a amazing experience. Enjoy.

The views on the top are amazing. It was pretty steep at times. The fellow hikers were so plesant and encouraging on the way up.

Very intense long hike. The views are worth it in the end though. Just take it easy and break as much as you need. We hiked this when it was colder so I didn't drink as much water but I can imagine you would need to bring a lot more if you tried this during the summer months.

Hiked with a couple of friends. Challenging but very rewarding. Left before 8 am and was able to stay in the shadow of the mountain until the very top. Still drank lots of water as it was still a hot day. Got off trail a few times as the white dots and blue dots were not always distinguishable from natural white rocks. Legs got a good workout.

My so much of a hike as it is a rock climb! It's a scramble up rocks for about half of it. The view was amazing the whole way up, though. Getting to the top was insanely rewarding.
My boyfriend and I are collegiate athletes, swimmer and cross country, and we were able to finish the whole hike in about 3.5 hours. Bring lots of water and snacks.

This was a great all day hike, it turned out to be 8 miles total from where we were parked and back. Lots of hard work but the views were well worth it! Our group did not bring gloves but there were many who did, totally a personal preference. It was fine without them. Enjoy!

Nice hike with great views of Phoenix at the top!

Hard! Okay so originally we were gonna do the Boulder Canyon hike, which is 4.8 miles. But we couldn't find that. We could only find Boulder Canyon TRAIL, which is much longer. So we hiked this one, and since we didn't know we were going on such a long hike, we actually only went about 2.5 miles in. It goes up and down, up and down, so it's hard the whole time! Fun but challenging. I love how you can see Canyon Lake from the top!

Started hike while the mountain was shrouded in clouds and mist. When we reached the basin, it was slick, yet doable at a cautious pace. Some small streams of water cascading off the cliffs. Very dramatic and beautiful scenery the entire climb. I brought my 11 year old son, and had to assist him quite a bit the last 1/2 mile as some of the boulders and rock climbing benefited a taller stature. We packed a hardy lunch, which we enjoyed every morsel as we took in what I consider probably the best view of the valley I have ever seen. Albeit we had decent hiking shoes, I would recommend wearing some with thicker souls. Descending we began to feel the jagged edges of rocks almost every step. Ouch! Overall, very satisfying hike. Went through almost 4 liters of water.

very exciting hike the top is scary but so worth it its an amazing view and my favorite hike in the area so far definitely worth your time

Nice views with reasonable elevation, especially at the two summits. You can expand this hike by using adjacent trails. Restrooms and water at trail head.

Great hike! The dots are helpful and staying to the very left at the last little climb to the top is very helpful.

Absolutely loved this hike! It is pretty challenging but the trail is fairly easy to follow, just make sure to follow the white dots and when in doubt stay to the left. I also read a review that to the left of the wall at the end there is an easier route to get up to the top which was super helpful. This hike took us about 4.5 hours with spending 30 minutes at the top. Beautiful views from the top!

Took a lot of breaks during the hike but it was totally worth it! Not recommended for inexperienced hikers. Will definitely do it again.

Love it ... great challenge and beautiful views.

This is always the place I use to introduce family visitors to hiking. Looks easier than it is, but beautiful views every step of the way.

Just to be clear, this trail is marked as hard in this app but I would rate it as moderate. There are great views and the ruins are amazing. Beware of the three way trail sign because if you are not paying attention you will end up on another trail and not back to the Rogers trailhead

I loved this trail! I took Tortuga, Elephant Mountain, and Spur Cross Trails. Made it all the way to the top! Great views up there and a worthy challenge! I will come back again that's for sure!

Only giving it four stars because of how crowded it was - we went on a weekend, but would recommend either going very early or during the week. The hike itself is tough, with steep (but short) climbs. May not be suitable for those who have height/vertigo issues, but the view at the top is well worth the climb! Bring water and be prepared to navigate the crowds

We went the first part of March and I felt it was a perfect time to go to miss the crowds and heat. I did this hike several years ago in the summer and it was miserable. This time this hike was fantastic! Yes, it had it’s difficult moments but it was beautiful down and back and the falls were worth everything you go through. Great, great hike.

A group of 4 of us hiked the "Superstitions Death March" on March 1. The hike truly lived up to its name and was both spectacular and brutal at the same time. We started at Carney Springs and came down Flatiron. The views were spectacular and the trail well marked. Recommend a minimum of one gallon of water.

Incredible hike, and fantastic scenery along the route and from the top of Flatiron.

A good rock hop at the end (last mile) with a steep grade....some scrambling and climbing required over small (6-12 foot) escarpments. Tough for those with fear of heights, due to the steep grade and the feeling of exposure at times. Need gloves to save your hands wear and tear.

After Siphon Draw, we were successful by staying in the bottom of the wash as we ascended, and did not get lost. It’s tempting to follow some of the side trails, but those we talked to that did that just got lost for a while and brought themselves extra effort. (Look for faint blue/white paintball marks.)

Downhill return may be more challenging to some.

Best climb yet. Tough but good

Pretty short hike, but a great workout. Went in the afternoon on a Sunday, fairly crowded but not unbearable. Got to the top in just over 30 minutes, if I lived here would definitely return and try and improve my time. Really accessible from downtown Phoenix (I biked over) and great views at the top. Would love to go again either at sunrise or sunset.

Very challenging and rewarding hike. Nice progression from easy all the way to difficult for the last mile, really warms you up. Lost the trail when it got really challenging and ended up in the middle of nowhere (didn't have anyone around to follow) but listened out for voices and found my way back. Last mile up is pretty intense, a lot of rock climbing, probably accounted for 40% of my time going up and 60% of my time going down. Views from the top are gorgeous, totally worth it. Not an experienced hiker but in decent shape so took things carefully, with getting lost and a 45 min break at the top, took just over 5 hours out and back. Bring lots of water, even though I started at 8am I finished all 4 liters I brought by the end. Also be careful on the flat part with lots of loose stones on the return (last mile) when you're fatigued, really easy to roll an ankle (I did). Overall, would highly recommend!

Go before sunset. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing the sunset & then the lights of the city. Absolutely breathtaking. It is definitely a very populated trail and people are not always polite. But the view from the top is 100% worth it. Also, go all the way to the top - you can do it. For an avid hiker I would say this is easy-moderate (go at least an hour before sunset). Otherwise I would say hard for a beginner (go at least 1.5hrs before sunset). Try to beat your time every time you go! I'm at about 30 minutes up. If you go at night you should be fine with the flashlight on your phone but you can bring a headlamp if that makes you feel better. You can do by yourself or with friends. If you have trouble parking, just park in the neighborhoods as the trailhead is not too far.
