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

Sooooo this trail was pretty dope. I went around 2pm and there were only 2 cars parked near the bottom. Very peaceful. The trail was about moderate. Very clear trail but always follow the app cuz some trails look similar. Didn’t see too many bugs which I loved lol I don’t fuck with the critters. I would recommend this trail for all ages who are capable. Couples: not too many lowkey spots to get ur freak on but I’ll keep an eye out. Overall I enjoyed the hike and the views. It was lit!!! #Hikeislife

beautiful trail. towards the halfway point is a steep downhill portion of the trail that you will need to hike back up. bring water and enjoy the view.

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

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.

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

Beautiful trail with great views and varying terrain. Did this as a solo hike mid-morning in November and the weather was great.

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.

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

Super good interval trail. Quick turn around time - under 1.5 hours round trip.

Awesome brother-sister hike!

First trip to Arizona. Finished a class up early by a few hours so hit the trail! Beautiful and great for a beginner with so many other people out and about I felt safe to continue on being a visitor. Glad I packed my water.

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 trail, good mix of up and downhill. Trail is well marked and maintained.

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.

best trail in Phoenix

Gorgeous. Didn’t find it as hard as the trail head signage suggests. Lots of climbing, rock scaling, bouldering type hike versus just a walk.

Awesome hike, great arobic

great cardio workout and great views of North Scottsdale and the city.

Loved it! Nice and challenging after making the turn to head back. Very crowded, get there early.

Great workout, straight up the mountain! Slippery rocks in some spots so wear shoes with good tread. The view from the top is breathtaking! Busy trail but very friendly :) can’t wait to do it again.

Awesome views, clean area, different options

A little crowded but a great hike with an excellent reward. Beautiful sunrise!!

Great hike, the top looks amazing, bring water.
