Nice hike, great views. Loop is not clearing marked

If you leave early enough, you will be shaded by the canyon for most of the hike. We started a little after 6am and it was shaded the whole way there—however, the sun had risen over the canyon by the time we were heading back. We stayed at the falls for a bit. There was plenty of water running through them—beautiful—some people were even jumping in! Try to stay on the trail by paying attention to trail markers, it’s easy to miss them when you get to the riverbed.

Beautiful mountains and wonderful “ side trails”

Worth the trip. Very well maintained trails. Beautiful!

I loved this trail! There wasn’t much water when I went so I’ll definitely be going again. A lot of flat hiking then a lot of incline towards the end.

It was hard, but amazing views and at the end the Seven Falls!

Great trail for off-roading. High clearance not required, but helpful. The views are beautiful and worth the trip. Use caution to stay on the "Easy" trail, if that is your personal limit. A wrong turn and you're on the "Hard" 4x4 trail to Devil's Staircase. Ask me how I know!

I like this moderate trail, it's a loop and it takes me about two hours to complete it. sometimes it can be little crowded tho, specially on Sundays.

Went out today for an afternoon hike. The trail is in great shape. There was a lot of water today. We were able to swim at the pools at the falls. Lots of frogs and lizards on the trail today.

Awesome refreshing swim at the top! Can’t beat it!

fun, cant wait to take my friends here

Rocky desert trail gives you good exercise

Took all the kids and had little whining. Fantastic views of Twin Sisters and the Madonna and Child. Chicken Point was a bit crowded with Ponk Jeeps but still worth the views of Village of Oak Creek and Submarine Rock. We couldn’t find the loop part of the hike so we just went back the way we came.

If only Tesla made a jeep version this trail would be 5 stars. We thought we got out early enough (7:30) to avoid the heavy tour jeep traffic, but heard and encountered several on our hike up and back. Still a great scenic hike that young kids could do with little difficulty. I wouldn't consider this as easy as Fay Canyon (which is only a slight incline), but I don't recall having to stop to rest. Just stopped to take in the views.

Nice hike for family. Great lunch spot at the falls.

Nice hike beautiful scenery, moderate trail condition

I’ve just recently started hiking so this trail was definitely challenging for me. A friend and I made it to the falls area 05/20/18. I wanted to quit a few times along the way.

We started our hike at 5:15 am and arrived back to the vehicle by 10:00 am. I drank 3 liters of water.

I am so thankful to all of the strangers that passed by picking up on my “quitter” vibe and offered such encouraging lies such as, “You’re almost there!”, “Oh so close, don’t stop!”, and my favorite, “It’s just around the bend.”, all the while we still had no less than a mile + left.
If not for your push I quite possibly would have quit. That hike was so important to me as it was the one year anniversary to of my brother’s passing. I had to make it to the end and back.

The view is beautiful. The trail is rocky and rough at times. Wear good hiking shoes/boots rather than running shoes if you have weak ankles or are a beginner hiker. My legs were so PO at me by the time i had started back down the trail that they absolutely refused to pick my feet up so I stubbed my toes and tripped a lot going down. So thankful no one knew my name as I’m pretty sure I looked like I was coming off of a binger at the last stretch to the trailhead.

Will definitely do this one again.

Beautiful trail, but much more difficult than I was led to believe. I have a fair amount of hiking experience and this was a rougher trek than I was expecting. Also climbing up and down the falls can be sketchy even if the rocks aren't wet they're still very slick. Also call ahead and make sure the falls are running before taking this trail. We didn't think do so and the falls only had small pools no running water not even a trickle. I'd go back if I knew the falls were running, but if not there's no way.

Edit: it's also a bit longer than indicated

Awsome, easy hike. Gorgeous views at chicken point (end of broken arrow). Recommend doing it. Do it early as it gets busy and there isn't too many parking spots

Always a good hike.

No falls as of 5/19. It's a moderate hike but right now it's hot and the sun is relentless. Little to no shade on the trail. It's still gorgeous up there though. There is still some water in the reservoirs but I wouldn't get in it. There were at least 20 'young adults' that were up there swimming and being obnoxious. Don't expect calm and serene.
We walked from the visitors center but took the tram back....worth the $4
Also, it's more that the 7.9 miles the hike description says. According to my 'map my hike' it was 9.75 from the visitors center and back round trip. When we got to the 7 switchbacks it was still about a mile to the 'falls'. We thought we were almost there but not quite lol

Great hike go early it gets hot!!

This hike was actually really difficult for us. Coming back is easier because it's mostly downhill. The falls are just a trickle and all the creek beds were dry. We actually got lost on the way down for about 20 min and it was terrifying in the heat. I think it's only worth it if the falls are flowing. Check with the visitors center before going.

I give it four stars not five because of the crowds. It’s a very popular and relatively easy hike to a lovely spot. Worth the hike but don’t expect a quiet , solitary,meditative experience.

Nice easy hike with awesome views. My pup loved it
