Amazing Hardest Hike Ever! I’m Over Whelmed with accomplishing this hike....Best Ever! GTAH,AZ 1-20-19 I kicked Ass on Flatiron !!!!

we got on the trail around 7:00am, which was great because we had the waterfall and overlook to ourselves! saw a number of people on the way down.

The Hike was nice and not super hard, however we came back to a broken car window and a stolen purse. We read reviews before we came of car break ins so it seems common. There were a few other cars reported broken into the same day. Just do t leave anything out in the open there.

Great trail with nice views and piece of history. Good, easy to follow trail most of the way. There are a few spots that get a tad slick or steep but overall trail is very manageable. Nice shaded break area at the turn around by the water fall. Will not disappoint, travel safe.

Wow those views make the slightly perilous conditions worthwhile! Rain a few days earlier made the rock faces very slippy!

Be careful and wear good shoes and you are in for one hell of a view

We planned for 3.5 hours because of some of the reviews but we kept a pretty quick pace and hiked it in 2.5 with a quick, maybe 20 minute, lunch break at the “waterfall”.

Hiking is a misnomer for this trail as rock climbing is pretty much the theme for a long stretch of the trail. The trail started out deceptively easy and lulled you thinking it's not so difficult then after an hour into it you are suddenly facing a terrian in its most primitive form with very steep incline. bring enough water and two snacks. gloves are highly recommended

One of my favorite hike in Tucson. My one year old son and I hike on 12/31 and it was beautiful, lots of flowing water and the falls was beautiful. If you are planning on hiking with a Baby make sure to bring hiking sticks they are very handy when you are coming down hill.

What a fabulous hike! The Superstition Mountains offer spectacular, rugged views with many unusual rock formations throughout this hike. We also appreciated that the steep rocky inclines seemed balanced by lengthy stretches of relatively flat walking. The falls’ themselves have very little water flow, but the wet, black cliff walls with trickling sounds that we could walk right up to were very great bonuses.. We were pretty leisurely in our approach—took lots of (warranted!) photos and a couple snack breaks. We were back at our vehicle in about 5 hours. The stunning views and varied terrain on this hike are not to be missed!

Pretty views all around! Easy to navigate- go right at a fork close to the top to get to the waterfall. I found it pretty easy but I hike a lot so moderate seems like a fair overall rating. We clocked 5.9 miles but did explore a little!

This is a great workout trail, and the view on the top is amazing.

first time on this hike and it was very fulfilling. a group of boy scouts went up around the same time and managed very well. we arrived at 6:30, park opens at 6. bring plenty of water, a flashlight for early morning, small snacks, and gloves for rock climbing. the trails are marked very lightly with either blue or white. plenty of shade for early risers. definitely going back!

Great hike this morning. Really crowded but still happy to do it since we were in town. Lots of scrambling and gloves would have been nice but we made it just fine. If we were to do it again we’d wear our hiking boots vs the hiking shoes just for the additional ankle support. The hike down was a little tough on ankles and knees but worth it.

This was one of the most satisfying hikes I have ever done. Start early, as it is a long one if you want to go all the way up to Flat Iron. Bring lots of water. We wish we had brought both camelbacks. Some of my best hiking pictures came from this hike. You can see at kels_marin on Instagram. We also had a helicopter fly below us when we were sitting at the top. It's not for people afraid of heights. There was a woman at the top crying because she was terrified to climb down.

Good hike but always busy on the weekends

Easy but beautiful. Great view of The Valley.

LOVE this hike all year round. I start bringing my children at age 4. Child back carrier possible but not alone, I'd bring someone to help with the steep areas and climbing down areas for child safety. Not stopping with a decent pace is 1hr 45min from bear canyon trail. Road dead ends - turn left- parking around to the right. HOWEVER this map is showing from sabino canyon. Be smart and bring extra water. July monsoons watch for thunder head clouds and hike back immediately once you see them forming. 7 crossovers. Last 2 are about 15-20 min long each. Possible chance of shoes getting wet when water is high. Bathroom and water fountain are on the road before the main trailhead.

Probably my favorite hike from the week I spent in Arizona. First mile is the most strenuous but then it levels out and you can enjoy some incredible views. Lots of wildlife in the area as well.

this was an amazing hike. the views were incredible. the ruins at the end were a fantastic finish. I really cant describe how awesome this hike was.

the drive to the trail head wasn't to bad. I made it in a 98 Honda crv which has 4 wheel drive. it was slow going (about 2 hours) but totally worth it. I did scrap the bottom of the small SUV a couple of time.

Came here at sunrise for a grand view of the valley. Not too crowded, definitely worked hard to get up there. Would recommend poles.

Great hike! Definitely not for beginners and please don't bring your dog(s) if you plan on going all the way to the summit. Stick to the left on the way up. Views were amazing.

One great hike. Elevation is doable. Scenery is beautiful. About six creek crossings and we did get wet up to our ankles, but it didn’t bother us cause it was a gorgeous day. Would definitely recommend this hike.

Beautiful views of canyon Lake.

Great hike! Beautiful views and smells! All the recent rain makes everything so vibrant. Be careful on the way down, there is a lot of loose gravel and it can cause you to slip if not wearing proper hiking shoes.

Another great hike. One of my favorite trails in the Scottsdale area!

I enjoyed Camelback. It was challenging, and had good views. I liked climbing up the rocks!

To be completely honest, I don’t think it is super special that I’d want to drive out there often and around so many people of different skill levels. It is a good hike, but to me, it’s a little overrated.

Good initial trail all up hill. Camped on the mountain after the trail split to the falls. Set up our tents then scrambled to the falls that were trickling. If you see the juniper tree camp site open, grab it up because it is by far one of the best spots and makes hiking out much easier as well

What a challenge! very steep climb and I kept thinking going down would be more difficult, and it was. Had to remove the tri-focals to have better depth perception. I'm and avid hiker in the Rockies and this was tough for me. But I did it! I envy those that can do it quickly and are steady on their feet. I've got a new workout plan for the gym to help with that. 65 and feeling alive! rock on☺️

AllTrails should probably update their rating system and include expert level, because this one would definitely be that. I didn’t feel this was so much a hiking trail as it was a rock climbing trail. You were using all fours for a good majority of the last mile. That being said I’m from the Midwest and am an average hiker at best and I did feel overmatched by this trail but a more experienced hiker may feel right at home. Be sure to pack water and maybe a snack or two. Also the notion that dogs are allowed on the trail is absurd. A dog can maybe handle the first mile and a half but after that it’s impossible for a dog to go on this trail.

Short hike but good workout! lots of rock scaling.. good hiking shoes and water a must. Took 1 hour going moderate speed to get to top and 25 minutes to go down going fast. No problem with parking mid week at 10 am. This hike wouldn't be fun in the heat. Very steep sections.
