    Lisa Lea reviewed Cholla Trail

    11 months ago

    I did this trail 2 years ago but didn't have time to complete it. Today I finished it and I must say that the view is amazing and definitely worth it.
    However, PLEASE BE AWARE, the trail is incredibly poorly marked, to the point of being a safety hazard. The trail is more like bouldering than it is hiking when you get to the last 15 minutes or so. This combined with the poor trail markings is a set up for disaster. So please be patient, make sure your hands aren't full so that you can use them to climb, and don't take risks. Pay attention to the trail.
    I hike all the time in Oregon and have done hikes all over the world including Peru and Guatemala and I
    Have to say that this made me a little nervous hiking it alone because of the terrain.
    Go early in the morning after the sun rises but it isn't quite hot yet. Bring water. And if you take uber like I did, note that they can't pick up and drop off at the trail head so you'll have to meet them at the main road.
    Have fun!
