Early November was a perfect time if year for this fun trail.

I've done this trail at least 52 times for sure! This is a great trail, love everything about this trail. Could have better parking but I always went on Monday's so it was fine.

Great workout! This trail is very rocky so proper footwear is definitely needed. You will need to climb using your hands in a few sections. Gorgeous views at the top!

Another beautiful hike here today :). Crossed the road to the stone dwelling...great short incline workout!!!

As a semi beginner, this was a great challenge-good cardio as certain parts are at a steep incline. Quite rocky, but definitely doable! Amazing views from the top!

Excellent Trail

Busier than expected. Parking was a little tough, too. Only made it halfway--taking to many notes for a geology assignment.

My first trail I ever did , hiking first. Seemover nice a lot of good photo spots. Had a great day

good trail. not the best in the area.

nice and tough. good hike to do in the morning even later morning, sun is not hitting your face and trail gains good elevation making your heart rate just right. nice exercise.

Lots of people. Beautiful view!!

So much fun...the sign at the bottom rates this hike as extremely difficult and I would agree with that as you are bouldering for most of it. Challenging but totally worth it...our GPS indicated 10km round trip.

Beautiful Scenery half way in....awesome Incline workout too! Loved it ....bathrooms on site!

Nice Hike! Confusing markers though....saw 4 coyotes on the trail....

best hike in Scottsdale Phoenix area. Not as rough as echo canyon but very challenging. great views.

Great views of the city. My Fitbit clocked it at about 7 miles. A real fun scale up, not rocky, and not strenuous.

Great workout! Slightly overcrowded and parking can get wild but the views great!

Beautiful trail. Loops you around to Piestewa Peak Summit Trail. Traffic is moderate until you get to the back of the trail, then its sparse. There are only a few places that provide shade so make sure your prepared and have plenty of water.

Nice Easy/Moderate Hike...Watch Out for Horse droppings! Nice incline up to the top....where you’ll find a heart of stones :). Bathrooms at visitor center, no fees! Enjoy

Definitely a good workout climbing boulders and straight up in spots. Worth it once you are at the top. Parking at trailhead is a challenge

My Girl and I wanted to do “Fatman’s Pass” off the Mormon Loop, but we couldn’t find it. We ended up taking a random trail down the side of the mountain before the trail turns south and loops back. It took us to a really nice neighborhood. We walked the wilderness behind the homes and saw a coyote! It was beautiful. However, I’m pretty sure we were trespassing, and we never found Fatman’s Pass.

Awesome brother-sister hike!

No hiking staff needed! You'll need both hands to help negotiate many areas, though you're not really "boulder scrambling"... it's more like climbing steep stairs for most of the hike. There are hand rails where you need them. I was glad I wore low cut, light weight hiking tennis shoes as it allowed me to flex and extend my feet for longer strides from rock to rock (ankle supporting, leather boots would have slowed me down on this hike, though that's what I usually wear for hikes). A Camelback (go figure) style hydration backpack is the way to go... keep your hands free!

Great hike with incredible views. It’s a challenge but definitely not as hard as the signs suggest. Most of the steep areas have hand rails. Parking is difficult, do it on a weekday if possible.

Easy start to a more advanced hike

Good views of the city easy in easy out

Crossed paths with two coyotes.

best trail in Phoenix

Great Hike Today!!! Beautiful with a nice trail variety for a hard hike. Be sure to take the immediate Left as you enter (before check in station) or you’ll be driving all over. Bathroom at Trail. Sadly some garbage along the way....

just did the mormon trail, great hike, will do the loop next time
