We Did It! Map

Great hike! It definitely will get your heart pumping.

It was a very difficult trail towards the summit. It was totally worth the climb, and I felt very accomplished after the climb.

Challenging and beautiful. Harder coming down. Witnessed a rescue here today. So, watch your footing, and bring lots of water. We brought over a gallon and could have used more between two.

Busier trail which is expected in the city, but the view is great! Much more hike feel than the stairs over at Piestewa. Parking is a a pain and no facilities at trail head. I agree with others, moderate the first 2/3 of hike then more difficult. Wearing proper shoes and bringing more water than you think you need is just smart especially on this trail. Saw lots of people in slippery casual shoes with no grip having a harder time than need be and some with no water.

For lots of breaks and someone out of shape, 3 hours round trip. Definitely something I have to do at least once a year. If parking wasn’t so difficult, I would go every weekend! We went around 11:30 on a Thursday and it was crowded.

Respectable short hike but too much traffic and not much variation along the way.

Great hike with several challenges. Parking fills up so get there early.

Excellent hike and weather today! Highly recommend!!!

Absolute favorite trail ever. Went in the late afternoon and caught the sunset from the top. It gets crowded at times and the climb after the saddle point is extremely difficult (yet rewarding). The view from the top is unbeatable. This climb is not for the faint of the hard as their are some dicey climbing parts with no room for error. A hike I won't soon forget.

A great hike that turns into a great climb. A rewarding workout for the day. Definitely want to do Echo Canyon next!

It was crowded but one of my favorite hikes!

I'M EXHAUSTED! An hour trek to the top with water breaks. A complete work out with lots of sweat included, and I still have to go back down to the trailhead. Well worth it.

Not too strenuous, well marked and easy to run.

Hiked this trail with a few friends. Started hike around 8 am to avoid hot sun and to get a parking spot at the base of the mountain. Trail was well travelled with numerous challenging sections. Our first time, it took us about 2 hours. Great views from the top and well worth the climb. Good footwear is a must and three point contact on the way down helped in avoiding jarring of the knees.

This is a great hike, don't believe anyone who says they turned back because there was too many people, they couldn't hack it. Plain and simple

It was tough to get to the top, but very rewarding! Halfway up trail, it basically turned into rock climbing versus hiking. The view at the top is incredible

Roughly an hour loop including times I made a wrong turn and/or stopped for pictures. Got way too excited seeing a jackrabbit along the trail.

You get to use your arms too as in a lot of parts it’s a scramble uphill. Good shoes and a treking pole can help. The way down offers a nice, alternative challenge to hiking and scrambling up. Great views to marvel at.

Nice hike with great views of Phoenix at the top!

very exciting hike the top is scary but so worth it its an amazing view and my favorite hike in the area so far definitely worth your time

little challenging towards the top, wasn't really sure where to go and no one around , so didn't continue. Did the circumference trail to add more length.

what goes up, must come down. Pretty slippery and rocky, very slow steps on the way down which took away from enjoying the hike. Would love to try again once the paved road is back open. friendly and encouraging hikers on the trail.

Lots of boulder scrambling, plenty of elevation, and fabulous views from the top. You may want to wear gloves because you'll be reaching over quite a few boulders on your way up. Wear sticky soled shoes and be considerate and tolerant - it's crowded, and some hikers are struggling. You may need to park at a nearby shopping center or hotel lot due to very high traffic on this trail.

One of my favorite go-to hikes for a reasonably good workout in a short amount of time. I always take the south route first, since there are rough, modest inclines which require some careful stepping, then take the north route down to the parking lot. Restrooms and water on site, and don't forget to stop at the Visitor Center!

Took a lot of breaks during the hike but it was totally worth it! Not recommended for inexperienced hikers. Will definitely do it again.

Love it ... great challenge and beautiful views.

This is always the place I use to introduce family visitors to hiking. Looks easier than it is, but beautiful views every step of the way.

Loved this trail! Best to get there early AM. I started at 7:30 AM on a Wednesday and ran into minimal people. I had tried this trail a couple of years back but left mid morning and it was too crowded to get to the top. The views and challenge are so worth it!! Can’t wait to do it again when I’m back or Spring Training again!

Really liked this one. Close to town with a beautiful view of the city. Some tight rocks go thru. In a couple of places it might seem like you lost the trail but sure enough you have to go thru rocks in very tight spaces. It’s not hard, just fun. Not for big people maybe.

Only giving it four stars because of how crowded it was - we went on a weekend, but would recommend either going very early or during the week. The hike itself is tough, with steep (but short) climbs. May not be suitable for those who have height/vertigo issues, but the view at the top is well worth the climb! Bring water and be prepared to navigate the crowds
