A great hike with beautiful views. Very uphill, but it's worth the steep climb.

getting to and from the summit is a bit steep but after that the trail is a breeze. views from the top are nice and the caves are cool, kind of hard to miss really, just turn right once you reach the fork at the top of the trail...

This is a great drive, easy, beautiful.

Beautiful drive, road shaded with tons of trees.
Next time hope to be on the motorcycle.

It's easy but I'm not sure what to see in this trail.

Walk to the bottom of the crater. The red mountain top of the crater is beautiful and impressed.

You can walk along the rim to see the walnut canyon, while the scene is not very featured.

First half of the hike was awesome, followed the directions from another post to get to the caves which were neat. Views at the top were great, practically a 360 of the city. We followed the loop to return, and must have taken a wrong turn at a fork because we ended up on a trail that parallels 89 for a bit. Walking near the road and in people's backyards were the only negatives to this hike. If we had stayed in the woods would have been lovely. Water/Gatorade/snacks highly recommended! Some shady spots depending on time of day

Easy trail with good views of the canyon below

Starts off fairly flat then BAM the climb begins and never ends. Beautiful at the top. Would of been five stars but signing for loop a little confusing. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Very interesting that people could live in that environment. Absolutely would take this walk again.

It was a good hike, not too strenuous up the mountain. Missed the caves though. There should be a sign showing the trail to the caves.

hiking moderate and at the top great view of Mount Humphreys

I read that several people missed the caves. They are not marked. There is a fork in the trail as you near the peak where you can look over the saddle and see houses on the back side. The fork to the left takes you on the main trail on the loop to the highest point. The trail to the right takes you on a short run along the lower ridge toward the West. That is where the caves are. It is a dead end trail. It is a nice hike. The higher altitude makes it harder to get your wind. It’s a good workout.

Good workout ! Didn’t like the cinder gravel though

I actually really liked this trail even though we somehow missed the caves. I felt like the hikes were easy enough to follow but I always use the AllTrails App when I go out. We met a few friendly people along the way but it wasn’t too busy. The climb to the summit was a small challenge but you can feel it in your legs. I also saw a snake slithering across the path although it didn’t look like a rattler. It was a nice break from the hot Phoenix heat.

Exceptional landscape. Such a beautiful and educational site. This isn't a long trail but well worth it.

Terrible markings. We drove very far to see the caves and missed them entirely. I read all the reviews and did lots of research, yet we still went to the top instead of the caves somehow. Also harder than moderate.

Great hike and so interesting! The views are pretty spectacular, too. We made it with 3 kids, easy enough.

Trail closes at five pm. So that was sad.

Very easy and smooth in most parts for mountain biking, With a few rock garden challenges along the way. A nice addition if you want a longer ride with less traffic, off of Campbell Mesa Loop.

Nice Easy little hike, very scenic❣️Saw a Falcon or Hawk in flight.

Gorgeous home through the trees with a nice contrasting view of green trees and brown hills

My family enjoyed this hike and were very blessed with cloud cover.... Be prepared for hiking boots or high socks, as you will walk in ash for sometime and it can irritate the feet! To walk through the magma field is an amazing geographic experience! And a little creepy!
