I thought this would be a leisurely hike but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of rock scaling and climbing over boulders. There are times where there isn't a marked trail. I LOVED IT! But definitely worth noting if you're not into that kind of stuff. The view at the top is beautiful. My only complaint is how crowded the trail is. My buddy and I stated at 6am and we were still fighting crowds.

Challenging and rewarding hike. The elevation change allows you to see different types of ecosystems.

Beautiful weather. Beautiful trail.

Super fun and challenging with amazing views, but the lack of signage or even cairns after the basin was awful. I was lost for 2 hours, scrambling up rocks I definitely shouldn't have been.

An iconic hike. Very fun in a technical way, where you have to climb up boulders, and amazing city views at the top. It's very popular, so expect a decent number of people. Parking was an issue but I found a nearby park that had spots.

Went on a Sunday around 6am and it was quite busy. As a person who enjoys hiking for the relative solitude, that diminished my enjoyment a little. The hike itself was good - well-marked, short but uphill on rocks, and a wonderful 360 degree view at the top.

One of sedona's best hikes, but be sure to leave plenty of time.

there are really three parts to the hike to know and plan around. The first big climb up to the bench, part 2 to the summit trails, and part three which is typically a quick 10 min to the Sedona lookout, or another 30-40 min to the north lookout.

if you really want to explore the best parts of the hike, plan lots of extra time!

Great hike with great views. Hiked out to both overlooks. Got pretty warm on the way down

Incredible hike with great views throughout. A little crowded but worth it

Loved what I saw but I wasn't ready and had to stop with maybe 1/4-mile to go. The mountain got the best of me this time but I'll get more conditioned and get it next year! (And likely bump to 5 stars; I only held back because I couldn't verify the great views from the top.)

Amazing views! Easily one of my favorite hikes in recent memory, and my 17th State high point!

Great hike, just to much people.

Great beginner hike if you're getting into hiking.

This is a great challenge. I do this hike every year in January or February.

This is my favorite hike in the valley. It is a good challenge and you can also backpack on top flatiron.

Unbelievable views, and challenging terrain. This hike had many other hikers on the trail. I clocked 5.1 miles in 2 1/2 hours. The Summit sign was just changed (new) earlier today. It was kind of a bummer I couldn’t locate the USGS medallion. The last 2 miles are the most challenging due to the lose rock, false summits (3 of them) and the thin air. Over all a great challenging hike.

Challenging trail. I loved it.

New hiker, with a healthy respect for heights! Lots of scrambling over rocks and steep ascents / descents. Gets very busy, but definitely worth the trip to the top - wonderful views.

Really cool view of all the city lights at night. There are lots of people in the evening still but make sure you bring a flashlight!

Fantastic trail. Remember to stay night over in your sleeping bag

How can hikes be better than this? Hard to fathom.

We 'trained' for Humphrey's for a couple of months, knowing that it would be the highest elevation we'd ever climbed, and gave ourselves (staying in Flagstaff) 3 days to acclimate. It's doable if you are in decent shape, bring plenty of water and a snack for the top, and have some patience with all of the other foot traffic. We picked the most gorgeous day - not a cloud in the sky and rain chances (during monsoon season), 0%. Apparently everyone else chose the same Saturday, and with good reason. Our group of 7 was up in 3, down in 3 for a total of 6 hours (left the parking lot at 6:45 am). The trail is really unforgiving in places - lots of rocks, roots and other low-lying obstacles to give your knees and ankles an insane workout. Trekking poles help, but aren't required.

No reason to restate what has been posted. Just put this on your bucket list and check it off. (Sorry to hear Ron's tale, below!)

While we would have liked to take a pic at the summit sign to show our 12,633-foot, 3,300 vertical odyssey was legit, it was vandalized (or whipped off its post from recent monsoons). Regardless, I'll never forget this epic hike!

More scrambling over boulders than walking on a trail but worth it for the views. Fairly busy on a Saturday but everyone was nice and helpful. I’m a newbie hiker and this was a challenge but very fun.

great views, well maintained trail, start early to avoid heat!

Well i have climbed Mt Rainer 7 times from all sides and 40 years worth of mountaineering on techinical climbing rock, ice & snow. Take this mountain with a trail to the summit. I tried last year at age 65 and only got to 10,300’. A trail runner fell and broke his ankle. I splinted it and took him down, no one would help. This year age 66 been training on the treadmill for 3 months at 5 times per week with a 30 pound pack and 5 pound ankle weights. I go at 2.5 mph at 15% for 80 minutes. I go today leaving at 02:00 wanted to see a sunrise from high up. Made it to 10,064’ and had to descend. Why, well first a bear 20’ from me off to the side. Then two bears on the trail i made noise and it didn’t phase them so then i go off trail to get around them and they start pacing me. The only way i could go was down. This mountain is turning into a pain, lol.

Really enjoyed this hike/rock scramble. Was a little more challenging than I was expecting but still worth it once you get to the top. Was there for sunrise and the parking lot was already packed. Bring lots of water it gets hot fast this time of year.

Great weather today! I have experienced all sorts of weather at the top. Always be prepared for a storm.
Not sure about AllTrails mileage for this hike, by distance calculated in at 10.5 miles.
Sturdy ankles are a must for this hike. Lots of trippers and rollers (roots, rocks, unstable terrain).

Think of a nice steady uphill climb through the beautiful pine trees, and then at mile 4 you begin hiking Piestewa peak (but it's at 11,000+) feet. So the hard thing is that the hard part really does come at the end. And it's for about a mile. With no trees. But the views from the top are wonderful. And you're at the highest part of AZ. So it's 5 stars.
There really are three false summits. We used 2-3 liters of water each. 10.5 miles round trip took us 7 hours. Nice people on the trail.
