Fun! Definitely steep and difficult at some points, but overall it was totally worth it.

Challenging but rewarding hike. I brought gloves and they were a big help! Make sure to stay on the trail, the blue or white dots can be hard to spot, so keep your eyes open. Also, good hiking shoes are a must, keep your nike free runs for the asphalt. The views from the top are worth the extra effort.

only a decent rating due to the huge amounts of people on this trail. you would see less people at the gym. being one of the only free places to hike in Phoenix is a large cause of this. if you are looking for quiet and atual nature then keep driving East to the tonto forrest($7 pass), well worth it
just 2 miles. hard on the way up. ledges around every turn. not for nervous hikers or anyone afraid of heights. don't trust there to be signs to keep you safe. at the 4th and last hand railing make a left and climb up the rocks. the trail appears to go straight over a very thin piece of trail that leads to a cliff if you miss the turn. great view once up top.

Went when it was slightly rainy and enjoyed the experience, the climb up is a nice vertical climb, slippery when wet (lol). My heart rate was elevated as I went up at a fast pace, the view at the top was incredible, pretty much as good as it gets! The trail is marked so following the posts was a nice way to stay on target, the descent was fun, tricky but keeps your mind focused and constantly working.

Antelope Canyon was formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone, primarily due to flash flooding through the northern area of Arizona. Rainwater runs into the basin above the slot canyons, picking up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. Over time the passageways have eroded away, making the corridors deeper and smoothing hard edges to form characteristic flowing shapes in the rock. The slot canyons are a popular location for photographers and sightseers and are accessible with Navajo guides only and also are a healthy source of business for the Navajo Nation as well.

Upon entering “the slots” you know you’re in for a unique experience. Weaving along twisting tunnels, the intense beams of sunlight catch your attention first. But as your eyes adjust, a different world is apparent… shadowed areas open up to reveal swirling walls carved out by years of erosive activity. Then more tunnels and more light beams… taking you into a world where your imagination prevails. Truly a mesmerizing experience... and this surrealistic pleasure is located just below the Earth’s surface!
A must-see for all curious adventurers.

It's a sandy incline up to the top, but there is a convenient gazebo along the way, if needed. Be careful when you arrive as there are no barriers on the rim of the overlook. However the views of the winding Colorado River 1000 ft. below are breathtaking!

Very nice hike. At 62, it was a challenge. Saw lots of people in tennis shoes, which is asking for a twisted ankle or slipping on a rock. But a great hike none the less.

I took my mom (50y/o) on this trail because some of the reviews said it was easy-moderate. However, mom only made it about 1/2 way up the scramble before she decided not to carry on. I continued on up to the base of cathedral rock, but didnt finish the trail for fear of her trying to catch up and injure herself. I'd say it is an easy/moderate trail for experienced hikers, but for those who are not, it would be rather difficult. Be careful, and certainly wear hiking boots.

Amazing Trail. More treacherous than the photos really give it credit for. It’s straight uphill but not terribly long. Not for amateurs.

Great workout definitely worth the view!

This hike leads to a great view at the top. it will take about 4 to 6 hours to go up and down. There is a bit of climbing just at the top. You can see what the climbing is like at the video at this link: https://youtu.be/g49Adwi9WvQ

Nice

Nice little hike. I’d say it’s more of a leisurely walk with cool views of Papago. There are several trails within one so it’s easy to not follow the exact route that’s shown on the AllTrails App. I imagine in the summer there is more of a challenge just due to the lack of shade and the heat.

Great views! There is a large network of trails in this area and numerous trails that link up to this trail. Pay attention to your direction as you can easily start walking on another trail and not realize it. They are all great trails so can’t really go wrong, but you may end up on a longer hike than you initially planned on.
Great views and landscapes along the way! Love this trail!

Nice 30-45 min uphill climb great views

It‘ s a nice short but moderate hike. It took me 50 minutes from the parking lot to the cave and this is including stops to take pictures. On the way back I took my time looking for critters and reptiles. Found some scorpions and lizards.
As for the cave I was the first one of the day and I had the cave all for myself. Loved it!!!

Excellent outdoor workout!

stair climbing for 1 mile straight up. I suggest not doing this if you haven't done any cardio in a while or you can take your sweet time as there were few stops even a bench half way

By far the best marked trail I have ever hiked and the most well maintained. There are many hills for photo opportunities are you head to the Thumb". If you are feeling a little more adventurous, look for the Miner's Cave and The Ogre's Den (not accessible), those were 2 cool additions I found during this hike.

physically demanding and definitely not for first time hiking beginners, bring plenty of water and good gripping shoes

I went solo as usual yesterday and thank goodness for seeing fellow hikers because I just completely got lost 1/3 of the way. Once you get past the basin/amphitheater and trek up the rocky hill, there's a split that goes right or slightly down then straight. Make sure you go down the hill then straight as I made the mistake of going right, lost about 25 min. Don't take shortcuts and follow the trail for your own safety! Light jacket/hoodie (current weather), GLOVES (ESSENTIAL) and snug fitting shoes with good grip are must, 3-4 bottles of water and energy bar(s) for the top or between climbs. Stop by the memorial up top, its to the left handside. Word of advice to beginner hikers, conquer camelback or piestewa peak first before Flatiron as this is much more physically demanding. I'd give a 5 but this trail is poorly marked once reaching the basin.

We drove in late in the afternoon and hiked this right before sunset on December 7th. Took about an hour and a half with us spending about a half hour at the top.

A rewarding challenge for the average hiker, a diverse landscape with enjoyable rock features for the more experienced adventurer. Traffic does get heavy, so an early start is imperative to get the best experience. 2 liters of water is perfect, no less than 1.5. Be prepared to use your hands in sections.
Leaving about 40 minutes before sunrise, we earned spectacular views of the valley at first light. The trail is not well marked at all, and even with two of us we lost the trail about 1/3 of the way up. Just part of the experience for a couple of Superstition first-timers. The Flat Iron itself is worth seeing, not only from the top but all the way up, as it hangs over you through most of the hike. Unique rock formations and lots to see in terms of flowers and trees. Would absolutely recommend.

I started at 10:30 am, I was surprised to see that most of the way up is in shade.

Amazing! This easy scenic hike is something everyone should do at least once. The rock formations are so unique and this is an outing even young families will enjoy. During December, there are sign posts with the 12 days of Christmas, Arizona-desert style marking the first 1/4 mile of the route. Very easy and well maintained trail!

We combined Goldmine with the shorter route of San Tan & Dynamite. I’m glad we did. While Goldmine has that steep climb that gets your heart pumping San Tan & Dynamite take you on a decent walk around the mountain. There are some beautiful views and other than Goldmine the hike is pretty clear. We met several people who do this hike daily and a couple the longer route to train for the Pacific Coast Trail.

This hike was pretty underwhelming. People are literally lined up before the bridge taking turns with pictures. Kind of took away from the beauty of it. For those with a fear of heights- the bridge looks scarier than it is. Walk up to it and you’ll see how much space there is to walk on it! Views are pretty! The spot is just too touristy.

Beautiful trail and the views are amazing. Challenging at the end towards the view point, have to climb up at times. Bring gloves with grips, hiking shoes and layered clothing. If this trail is your first time, allow yourself enough time to go up and down. Minimum: 6 hours roundtrip. Definitely worth the challenge.

Rated hard but if you’re in shape and have okay balance this shouldn’t be any trouble at all. Be sure to hydrate, take water and good shoes.
