    Hiked this yesterday with my 4 amigos. We were a group with varying degrees of fitness, but all hikers. First, take at least 3 L of H2O, it get's hot up there. It helps to drink some electrolytes beforehand or eat some blocks during. There is no shade! Start out with sunscreen on and re-apply liberally. We started at 8:30 a.m. and only averaged a mile or so per hour. I would recommend starting earlier if it is warm. When we finished it was 85 degrees! Too hot IMHO. I would NOT park at the abandoned tractor tires, I would go on down the road to the structure and park there. Go up on this side. For the first part of the trail, it is mostly way-finding. Once you get up past the first ridge, there is a bit of a trail and we built some cairns to help you out. Not so many cairns at the first part. I would recommend lug-soled boots and poles. The trail can be unkind in some places and you need good traction and support. Great work-out and nice views.

    First, let me clarify a couple of things you will find in other reviews. 1st there is NO fee at this trailhead and next there ARE potties at the trail head.

    We hiked this trail counter-clockwise. The views on the first part of the trail were nice, the last half was a bit underwhelming. I certainly would not rate this trail as hard. Maybe moderate due to length, but not due to elevation gain. We started on 104 the Lost Dutchman Trail then took a left at Black Mesa. We had waited until the "top" (mile 6) to have lunch. and there really isn't anywhere for that, so we continued until about mile 6.5 (counter-clockwise) and walked down to some nice rocks on the left in a little gully and had our lunch there. Can't say I'd be running back to do this one again.
