    Moderate to Difficult elevation gain. Some pretty views both out and back. A good deal of company on a Saturday morning/afternoon, but not crowded. Took just about 3 hours with about 4-5 short breaks and a couple 15 minute breaks to snack and rest. Overall, a nice city hike.

    Moderate to difficult in elevation gain on Alta. Moderate on National and Bajada leg. Difficult in terms of total distance. Be sure to use the Central Ave. entrance to South Mountain Park and park at the triangle/wedge as others have mentioned. Made the mistake of driving out to Laveen to the green and black dot on the map to find no access. Alta portion of this loop is very pretty in Spring: flowers in bloom, vivid chollas and ocotillos. Despite other reviews, was still quite surprised at level of solitude: went on a Sunday at 8am and once hitting Alta ridgeline, saw total of 6 people on way to San Juan Lookout (where Alta and National meet). Once completing Alta, continue on National until hitting Bajada. Minimal scenery on Bajada. Lots of dry wash crossings. May be more scenic after a rainstorm (although potentially dangerous). Took 4 hours total going solo and taking a few short breaks. Would plan on 5 to 6 hours if including a 1/2 hour lunch/break and moving at a casual pace.

    A must do in Phoenix. Hike itself is very nice for being in the middle of the city. Went at sunrise on a Friday and parking lot was already starting to fill up. Go early and during the week if not a fan of crowds.
