Pretty slippery at some parts. No shade. Nice sunset view of the city

Easy fun trail for the kids.

Nice trail first hike was a bit tough due to distance for me, but fun!!

Decent short trail with a modest payoff at the end. 6.5 out of 10.

Nice trail with great views of the Superstitions. The petroglyphs are cool and we even saw a rattlesnake.

short hike that's family friendly. nothing super spectacular, but fun to hike directly up the river. possibly a couple kid friendly swimming holes if its summertime

Mid April, 3ft snow, but trail is fairly packed. I recommend micro spikes to help with the slick inclines near the start. Also, wear boots. If you don't have snowshoes, you'll do a few snow lunges, particularly near the lake. Snowshoes will get in the way at the start, but would help the lake area be more enjoyable.

Short but semi steep trail. Very popular. Great spot to watch sunset over SL valley. Trail was dry. Dog friendly trail, with many friendly dogs. Street parking at trail head with 3 hour limit. Should be plenty of time for this trail.

Heiroglyphic Trail is a good easy trail, with minomal elevation gain, a good hike for all skill levels, the coolest part was seeing the writings on the rocks at the top of the trail.

Went on Saturday with a friend. See some cactus flower bloom on the trail. Great work out. Beautiful design on the rock. Only challenge I have is to go around the biggest rock with so many people stand in the way. Not to give anyone access to get on rock my fear was to slide and fall but I did not

Great trail for a hiker with moderate ability.

A short hike to get to an amazing spot! Great photo ops. Go a little further up the the river to get to a very peaceful shaded spot.

Hiked in the rain. Nice and easy. The dog loved it. Recommend dry months, you walk in a river bed for a minute

Fun for the family. Not hard and has some amazing views, waterfall and hieroglyphics.

Hiked this trail with my two kids last week, my five year old did great. this Trailhead is a little bit steeper than the Granite trail head that also leads to Bell Canyon reservoir but it was still a nice Trail. The reservoir water line is still low as of last Sunday; leaving the lower Creek bed dry, but this means you can easily hike around the reservoir without getting your feet wet. It is also not stocked for fishing yet from what I heard from other hikers.

Beautiful views, have to do some minor rock climbing at the top but easy for all. Lots of families, dogs and little kids on this trail. Very picturesque! Have some hieroglyphics and the pools of water were mostly dried up in March but still some there to see.

Went up it two days ago. Great views for such a short hike. Probably around 3 feet of snow but at the time that we went it was really solid so we we’re able to hike on the top of it though occasionally we would fall through a bit but we had good boots so it wasn’t too bad. Definitely would come back despite the snow.

Extremely dry! A very easy and extremely photogenic Canyon. Hiked in to the “T” junction and went aways around the right after it. We hiked w/a seven year old who had a blast! Highly recommended and very short and easy! Took lots of pictures. Oh,we started in around 9am and there was only one other family in. On the way back out it looked to be getting crowded, lot was full too. The road was smooth, not rough at all. ( rolled up in a Prius C)

Quick hike but a good workout! The view at the top is always nice too!

This is a nice, easy hike. Due to this, it is busy.

Beautiful views of cactus and the valley! Easy to follow and especially amazing hieroglyphics at the end of the trail. Yesterday we were met by many telling us of mountain goats crossing the trail. We missed them, but you might get lucky as the water pools at the hieroglyphics apparently attract them to the trail. This trail can be done by people in a variety of fitness levels with probably a little variation in rests.

Went here last Saturday. It was a beautiful day. Easy trail and beautiful views.

Definitely not bike friendly. My son ended up leaving his bike a little ways in & continued on foot. I wouldn’t call this EASY, but not difficult. My 10 & 5 year old did the whole thing with little to no complaints. Great burn and incline!! Loved this trail. Super cool ending too! Totally worth it.

Great out & back trail. It's been fairly warm here and the trail was relatively clear of ice and snow with the exception of a few patches. Crampons were not necessary, although we couldn't get all the way to the top due to high winds and lots of snow.

I took my in laws who are about 70 on this trail. I would say it’s moderate for someone who’s balance and skill level is not advanced.
Took us about 2.5 hours with a couple scenic breaks.
The views are great and the elevation is steady to the end of the trail. We started early around 8am and the trail was filling up around 10am significantly

I love going up the side of the mountain for a good challenge. The trails all seem to lead to the same place but aren't marked. Beautiful view

Easy trail to hike beautiful sites to see

This was my first time back to hiking in while. I took my five kids, 3, 5, 6, 9, 11. The two oldest went ahead both directions and made friends along the trail. I carried the three year old most of the way, (though he probably could have walked, it just would have taken all day) and the two youngers stayed close by me. We brought a lunch and enjoyed the cool of the rocks in the shade while we ate. Then the kids had a good time exploring the rocks, climbing higher up, until it was time to go back. It was a great easy to moderate hike for me and the kids.
