Easy trail to begin which then advances to more rocky footing and then at the stream flowing into the pool there are boulders to manoeuvre over. Worth the effort in terms of the views and tranquility near the Petroglyphs. Would definitely hike this trail again.

I recommend starting early. This trail gets busy. It's a good trail for beginners. Beautiful views

WARNING! The trail is great! Security for your vehicle is a 0! We had a great hike but when we returned to our vehicle the back passenger window had been busted out and two purses stolen. The parking lot was full all day with people hiking the trails and still the thieves managed to break in. When speaking with the Sheriff, they informed us that this has been a consistent issue at this trailhead.

My first AZ trail. Its about 60 minutes of gentle uphill with rocky path. A few steps where you need to use your hands for leverage. Great views of the desert and rocky canyon walls. Would do it again!

First part of trail was near houses, and had 2 cattle gates, so not so great a view to start. 2 porta-potty's, no TP. Once you got along the trail a bit it was beautiful, but it's vastly more rocky on the trail than places like Usury, or Lost Dutchman, so you are forced to look down the entire time so you don't trip. Kinda ruins the walking part of the experience. Entire loop was 3 miles, but "distance" indicator above would lead you to believe it's 2.8 miles one-way. No waterfall at end; just a slow drip into a stagnant pond about 20 feet across. Pretty up there, and glyphs were cool, but just not a good hike overall due to the trail condition.

Pretty busy on a Sunday afternoon I wanted to get closer to take better pictures of the petroglyphs but lots of family with kids so I will have to return maybe during the week. Everyone was friendly and seemed to be navigating the trails comfortably, Tips there are port-a potty but had no bathroom tissue, bring water prepare to be to spend a few hours round trip I was there 3 hours

Awesome trail not to hard not to easy! Very dog friendly we saw several and even took 2 ourselves! Ours even got to go swimming when we got to the top They loved it!

Ps always bring water for yourself and your furry friend!

Happy Hiking!

Quick easy hike. Not as steep of an incline if you ascend from the north, or dump road trailhead. The caves were cool.

Being recent transplants to Phoenix, we have spent most of our time hiking to the north (Sedona, Oak Creek, Pine/Strawberry, etc.). On a whim this weekend, we decided to give the Superstitions a try, and are we glad we did! This was a perfect hike for a beautiful Sunday afternoon with the family. Our kids, ages 13 and 12, really liked the trail, also... especially the part when we crossed paths with a large Tarantula! Do yourself a favor, and hike this trail!

Phenomenal views! Great place to take in a sunset. Steep but doable climb. It was twilight as we were leaving and we heard coyotes.

Such a pretty trail! I’d say it’s on the easier side of moderate, but you can go a bit further at the end to add some climbing if you’d like. Gorgeous views though!

Great view of rocks and cacti. Plenty of dirt. Walking in this trail I really felt the history under my feet. Afterwards you’ll be hungry. So good one yes. #goodoneyes

Good hike with some nice views. Easy to moderate. Saw a few tarantulas on the trail. Followed AllTrails map to caves and could not find them. No signage for caves anywhere along the trail.

It was a great day on the trail! It’s less sandy and loose rock than other trails we’ve done in the area and that made it easier. Water was flowing at the top and it was so nice to be up there with other hikers.

Amazing!!! Go early. Wear sunscreen and take water!

My friend and I completed this short little trek on the evening of 10/13. We started our hike at 5 pm and returned to our car around 6:30 pm. The hike itself only took 45 minutes, but we spent some time on top of Sugarloaf taking in the views.

We were initially a bit discouraged, as it had been raining on and off all day long, and just as we were about to give up, the skies opened up and we were blessed with the gift of blue skies and sunshine!

We reached the summit of Sugarloaf right as the sun was beginning to burst through the clouds, providing us with a vibrant canvas of purple, pink, orange and yellow. We shared this magnificent sunset with just two other people, and it was the perfect way to conclude an absolutely majestic day in Sedona!

This is a very easy hike that provides 360 degree views of the town and surrounding valley. An ideal spot to catch a sunset and end your day!

Weather was perfect and scenery was amazing. Was a fairly easy hike in and out. We went a little higher then the stopping point and that was a bit more challenging. Gorgeous views and not too many people. I would highly recommend this trail.

Was beautiful. Go early ~ less people. As you get into the trail it gets rocky. Wear proper shoes and watch your footing. Was worth the hike.

Lots of rocks. Do not do this with sneakers.

Great hike! Saw a coyote when we first started out on the trail. Nice views from the summit. The path was decent and easy to follow throughout.

Recent rains have small stream and waterfalls flowing. Good way to shake the summer lack of exercise. No scrambling and moderate incline.

A pretty easy hike, not too much elevation gain with some nice running (not always) water at the end. The hieroglyphs are nice, and I’m pretty sure some people have added their own as well.

Amazing and breath taking view

First hike we did in Sedona. Very easy. Beautiful views of Sedona and the canyon plus we saw a few coyotes which excites things. Will certainly do this one again.
