Great trail with beautiful views at the top of Camelback. Steep so definitely bring a backpack to hold your stuff so you have two hands available. Challenging and also a great workout!

Great trail I’m a somewhat new hiker. Challenging enough for a good workout if you are trying to get fit and measure your endurance. Plenty of water needed.

It was a test. But Awesome!

great trail. good shading for most of it. good views too

Fun trail with light elevations. Back part of trail has a good bit of rocks-trail shoes good here. Also, a lot of sun exposure, so water is a must. Enjoyed the scenery.

Great hiking with my dog! She loved it. The hike up is tough but the views are 100% worth it!

I have never gone hiking before and this was actually my first. So for newcomers like me, I would suggest moderate level of fitness, 2-3 full bottles of water, and shoes with good traction.

I came during February, so the weather was amazing, would not recommend this trail during the summer time. The climb down is a lot easier and faster, but be careful, because it is much easier to slip up going down.

I was hiking the trail and I slipped in mud and Broke my leg on a rock. I had to go to the emergency room

With Michael josh and jay

Hiking shoes/boots required. Almost no flat areas. Windy up too at times (windbreaker suggested). Plenty of water and food. Well marked but there are some off trails that can get you in trouble. I wouldn’t do this if you have bad knees or ankles. Overall, amazing trail, phenomenal views and great feeling of accomplishment after completing.

This trail is great for a cardio workout! I recommend shoes with good grip as coming down the trail can be a little steep. The trail can be a little crowded with groups but I don’t mind. I do this trail at least once a month as a conditioning hike because it offers so much in the way of physical training. And the view from the top can’t be beat!

Amazing trail for those more active and fit. If you’re scared of heights, this will thrill you toward the end. It starts off really easy and then out of no where you’re climbing huge steps to the top that are steep.. also, get there early.. we arrived at 7:10 and when we came back down a little after 9am it gets extremely busy, people waiting around for others to leave and people parking all the way down to the main entrance on the Main Street. Definitely a good work out for arms, legs, and good cardio. Great hike and views! Well worth the body aches

Amazing Hardest Hike Ever! I’m Over Whelmed with accomplishing this hike....Best Ever! Gloves are a MUST as you’ll be crab crawling down steep rocky terrain. It is definitely a Hard Hike, Epic Summit with amazing views! GTAH,AZ 1-20-19 I kicked Ass on Flatiron !!!! 7.00 entrance fee, clean bathrooms on site :). Plenty of parking. Took me 6 hours total

This trail was a great challenging trail for beginners . Beautiful view once you are at the top. Went around 8am- not very many people .

up in 43:40 today. great hike but starting to get crowded

Very pretty hike near the perimeter of Saguaro Lake. It’s rated as “moderate” but I would definitely consider this an “easy” hike. I went on a Sunday so it was a little on the busy side, but not overly crowded.

"Lightly travelled"?? Really? Maybe because it was MLK Day, but this trail was packed with people and pets, including a class outing. Constantly having to step aside the narrow trail to let opposing hikers by and vice versa. Would have been some decent scenery if I had time to look at it. When one of the hikers was playing rap music on his phone so everyone could hear, that was it for me, turned around and went home. I would also rate it as easy, not moderate.

We got off Phoneline accidentally and ended up picking up the Phoneline Link trail which was beautiful with many different types of cacti and leafy trees providing shade. Nice climb up switchbacks with views. We had to travel down Phoneline about 1/2 mile to reach Blackett’s TH, but it makes a nice loop. Steady climb, avoid in high heat. Summit is marked by a sign but views at the top do not really surpass what you see on the way. Still a great workout and fun to summit. Loop added an additional 1.5 miles for a total of 7.5 miles and 1800 feet of climbing.

Beautiful trail!! Loved it! Took about 2.5 hours

Test

good workout. beautiful views! a bit busier than we expected but still a great hike.

Wow those views make the slightly perilous conditions worthwhile! Rain a few days earlier made the rock faces very slippy!

Be careful and wear good shoes and you are in for one hell of a view

I highly recommend this trail to hike up to the cables if you’re just starting to hike and you are building up your strength and stamina. It’s about 2 1/2 miles into the cables. Trekking poles are great for balance in some areas. Total sunshine so wear a hat and bring plenty of water, especially as the days grow warmer. Happy Hiking!

Hiking is a misnomer for this trail as rock climbing is pretty much the theme for a long stretch of the trail. The trail started out deceptively easy and lulled you thinking it's not so difficult then after an hour into it you are suddenly facing a terrian in its most primitive form with very steep incline. bring enough water and two snacks. gloves are highly recommended

Proud to say at age 72 I made it to the top today my second time after 7 1/2 years when I climbed before. Seems like it was much more difficult this time but then again I am much older. It was a perfect day for hiking, the weather was about 62° and sunny skies. The views from the top are spectacular, take plenty of water and a snack. trekking poles are great in certain areas but most the time you won’t need them, definitely you’ll need gloves for the cables.

This trail was absolutely breathtaking! The entire way up and down had the most beautiful views. It was not an easy hike but the views from the top were so worth the climb. Give yourself time and bring plenty of water and food if you get hungry! Our pup came with us and he did great too. The trail is well marked with white paint. You can purchase a parking pass at the trail head. Beware: the trail is ACROSS the street from the restrooms and payment areas. 10/10 recommend!

I did the loop clockwise with detours to the lookout trail and Tom's Thumb. about 16 miles. Tremendous views. coming down the east trail after the thumb is pretty gnarly. A lot of loose gravel on the narrow and steep switchbacks. Pretty hard on the knees and I'm 26 years old and 175 pounds. Overall the best hike I've been on.

This is a great workout trail, and the view on the top is amazing.

This trail was a serious challenge, bring snacks, gloves and some tunes (air pods).
