The rocks and steps are worth the view at the top!! Stay to your right on the trail. Get to the trail early. On the weekends it gets busy. week days are best.

The views on this trail were absolutely breathtaking. Suggest you go early. Starts getting busy around 8am.

Nice trail. A bit difficult to follow, but there is a good amount of cairns. Love the Superstitions!

Beautiful view...if you can get it all to yourself. It was absolutely PACKED when we got to the top. Way too touristy! There was an actual line of like 15 people waiting to get “their perfect photo” on the bridge.
The hike was short and I would say easy. I was disappointed as I thought it would be more difficult or longer. The end has steps up to the top but other than that It was an easy leisure hike.

We had a jeep and were able to drive in to avoid walking the dusty trail in. The view from the top was amazing and a must to go on the bridge and take some pics!

It was a nice view worth the hike. Went 9/23 started @ 930 finished @ 1230 sat up there for about 40 minutes to see the view & snack. The inclines can be a little tough on knees and stuff but keep your hands free to help climb a bit. Water for sure needed. If you go earlier I’m sure it’s not as hot

Excellent beginner trail. My 9 year daughter and I hiked this very easily. Plan to get there early as the parking lot fills up quick.

Great hike...the climb is not easy but it’s worth it...I stopped once for a snake :) and twice to catch my breath!!! Beautiful 360 degree view at the top!!!

Great trail to explore big boulders, some water pools, insects, green vegetation in the middle of the desert!

Great views on this hike. A challenging hike for someone not is shape but I still made it to the top.

Turning over a new leaf, really nice experience with this trail. I should have been hiking this trail sooner. The irony is that I was a resident of Gold Canyon and lived not even 2 miles from the Trailhead beginning Point.

Great workout. I prefer this to Camelback. The difference may be the 300' vertical elevation difference :-)

I like the views and people sharing the trail seem to be pretty friendly. Great fun for an after work hike.

Absolutely breathtaking! You have to walk a little less than a mile through sand to actually get to the trail but the hike itself and the scenery made it so worth it. There’s also three trial options of ranging length and difficulty, all leading to the bridge.

Just amazing and easy! Highly recommend, did the longest route.

Great hike. Fairly short. Small crowd since it was early Friday.

Great views. Worth the hike.

Such an incredible workout, I alternate from ridge line Nd Beverly canyon to Pima wash to javelina, always exciting!

Lovely walk/ trail for families or the less adventurous. I'd pick a crazy backcountry hike over a paved path any day, but I was still able to really enjoy this. There's a big enough variety in plants and scenery to keep it interesting. My mom can hardly walk on flat ground without being in pain, and she was able to do this ok.

Great trail with amazing views of Scottsdale. Bit of a scramble at the end

Go early to avoid the dust and crowds

Little to no shade. recommend doing it early in the AM or late at night during summer months. Fats Man Pass and the tunnel were fun to explore! I did this with 3 friends of mine. It took us awhile due to the heat and time of day. bring lots of water

So fun. Always try to hike here when it’s raining because the water flows are amazing! Just a great short hike!

I would rate this hike as easy. Went around noon, at that time of day there is almost no shade the entire trail. So I definitely recommend lots of water. The hike up is a very slow incline. You won’t miss the petroglyphs, they definitely are worth the hike. I’d say the hike down is more beautiful, as you can see the valley. Rocky trail.

Gorgeous views. Very easy hike until the last quarter mile.

Bring lots of water. It was very sunny when we went. Great views.

A perfect get away from the city. Kid and elderly friendly!

Beautiful scenic trail. I started at the mezcal trail head because the main trail head was way to crowded. It was a longer hike but well worth it.

Beautiful hike! Went nice and early to see the sunrise. Had the mountain ourselves!

This is a beautiful trail. I went with my mom on my birthday and there was a lot of people hiking and waiting to take pictures on the trail but it was well worth it.
