My new favorite Superstition trail. Can be steep hiking in spots.

13 hours ago

Do not go after 4:00. Be very careful bringing kids. It’s not an easy hike at the top. More like a climb to the cave. Takes about 2hours to get up if you are a non hiker.

This was an awesome hike! Totally enjoyed the climb!

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.

This is an incredibly special trail, though quite difficult in many areas especially for people like me afraid of heights! Particularly when the wind is whipping threatening to tear you off the rock face! Not for the faint of heart. Scenery is spectacular the entire trek. We went counterclockwise and at the bottom the sign reads: difficult, technical skills needed! One of the harder hikes, not moderate. Loved the excitement and beauty. Don’t miss this trail.

Great trail, the view was spectacular

Lived in AZ for 30 yrs and finally attempted this trail. All I can say is AMAZING! Add it to your list and make sure you take plenty of time to enjoy the views. It was challenging but very rewarding. Enjoyed every minute of it.

Must do if you are in the area! Nice loop trail with great views.

scenic but very rocky at certain areas, had to pay attention where to step and not twist an ankle. Was hoping to see more wildlife as spoken of in other reviews, maybe it was to cold.
Elevation wasn't to bad

Awesome trail but definitely not easy! This is my first official hike, I don’t know how but I MADE IT TO THE TOP. A big shoutout to my group who encouraged me to do it!

This hike was the most challenging I have ever done. More rock climbing than hiking, really. Quite technical in many areas and not for the faint of heart. Nonetheless if carefully approached, can be successfully completed by those of good balance and reasonable fitness. Gloves are highly recommended as much of the “hike” required 4 points of contact. Though short in distance, long in effort!!

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

Lots of people. Beautiful view!!

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.

Used to be my favorite trail—beautiful and solid workout. Nowadays it suffers from far too many visitors on it’s narrow trail and too many off-leash dogs and owners who don’t pick up their dog’s poop.

At the top are views that make all the strenuous breaths worthwhile. We had a beautiful day and met so many nice people along the way that the time flew by us. The climb up was a bit scary at times, particularly at the very top just before you reach your destination where there was a 6 foot rock face you had to literally climb. But, it is doable even though many people turned back. We were glad we challenged ourselves and were rewarded with awesome views. We also recommended once you are on top to check out the lesser peak for even more views and less people. The trip down was easier for me than my sidekick but my legs were shot so I used my arms to lower my body down most of the rocks. One last tip, bring gloves. I did and was so glad my hands didn’t take the brunt of the abuse from the rocks.

Beautiful Scenery half way in....awesome Incline workout too! Loved it ....bathrooms on site!

Definitely hard trail. Steep at the end going up and down is rough with a lot of loose rocks. But the cave is amazing! Our family loved it!

Great trail!

Great views of the city. My Fitbit clocked it at about 7 miles. A real fun scale up, not rocky, and not strenuous.

This hike is NOT MODERATE! Starts out flat but as you progress to the cave this incline gets steeper and stepper, rocky and rockier. I can’t call a 45 degree incline moderate. But it’s worth the effort, great cave and view.

This trail definitely borders on hard. The last 1/2 mile will challenge you with large rocks and a steady incline. The reward at the end is incredible. As noted by others, park in the first lot you see once you hit dirt. There is another trailhead past the first lot. You will need to walk through.a gate that should be marked with a wooden sign. We had to secure the sign with some extra wire as it had fallen down. Other hikers told us they missed the sign and spent an extra hour looking for the cave. This trail is dog friendly but is challenging for them as well.

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.

A little busy for me. Plus a lot of people that were amateur knocking rocks loose that made me wary. Otherwise beautiful, diverse, difficult, and Arizona at its best. The crowd made it less than 5 star for me.

My Girl and I wanted to do “Fatman’s Pass” off the Mormon Loop, but we couldn’t find it. We ended up taking a random trail down the side of the mountain before the trail turns south and loops back. It took us to a really nice neighborhood. We walked the wilderness behind the homes and saw a coyote! It was beautiful. However, I’m pretty sure we were trespassing, and we never found Fatman’s Pass.

Was a long loop trail but so wonderful. Go counterclockwise at the loop.

This was a 7.7 mile trail from the trailhead. I would start right and end from the left. I started to the left and it was a very easy start with a hard ending. Tons of rocks on the end of the trail.
