    This is one of the hardest hikes that I have done thus far and I’ve done a couple that were rated extremely difficult. ALMOST talked myself out of doing it but I’m glad that I did. The hike was equally hard ascending and descending. You can’t truly appreciate the view of the top from the bottom until you get to the top!!! ABSOLUTELY breath taking!!! The basin is also amazing!!! Where did all that water go?!?! Not sure if I’d do it again but for sure a must do experience!!!

    While the “trail” did display BEAUTIFUL views it was BEYOND a hard rating for me and the group that I was with, and we ARE NOT novices at “hiking”. This was more mountain climbing than hiking to us. The trail was unmarked after a certain point and quite dangerous out a few points in my opinion. Maybe we had gotten “off trail” at one point on the way down but I was seriously praying that I wouldn’t die!!! There was literally nowhere to get my footing or nothing to hold to. It was serious rick climbing!!!

    Again the trail was beautiful once we got to the inside of the mountain but it needs to be marked A LOT better and that rating should be extremely difficult. This was a once in a lifetime hike for me. Glad I survived it!!!

    This was actually a good trail. It was rugged to me, a for real hike, nothing paved. Would’ve given up if some of the group hadn’t been using the All Trails app!!! Thought for sure we weren’t going the right way SEVERAL times!!! The app kept us on trail. The description says that the trail is lightly trafficked. This is a true statement. We didn’t see anyone else on the trail until we were done!!! I don’t think I’ve done a trail that “natural” before. It was a good choice. Needs signage tho!!!

    So this was a decent trail. We did the baby loop this morning. Nice moderate inclines, well marked. Not sure of the milage...we should do the bigger loop next time!!!

    This was a decent trail. I suppose the moderate rating stems from the rugged terrain. If you're not bothered by knee/ankle issues tho it's a fairly easy walk. Not much incline at all. Making sure you're stepping an rocks that's won't move when you step on them was the biggest challenge. Loved the cave at the end!!! That was AWESOME!!!

    Thought this was a pretty good hike. I'll agree with the moderate rating. The terrain is a bit rugged throughout. I would suggest more signage tho. I got a little disoriented I guess you could say. Got to a point where it looked like the trail just ended at what I'll describe as a ravine but it actually continued once I got down the ravine and around a curve. There were several moderate inclines and one REALLY big one!!! I thought surely I'm going to have to go down the mountain but I kept encountering these inclines!!! The glutes and hamstrings got a serious workout today!!!

    I felt this trail deserves a rating of difficult simply because the incline was like a 10 pretty much the whole time. Nice challenge and beautiful scenery and wildflowers/cacti sprinkled here and there.
