    I hit this at least 2 times a week. If you do it for fitness it will be a good challenging hike if you keep your speed up as it offers a moderate gain with a great lookout point at the top - the descent is equally engaging depending on how you take the loop- counter or clockwise. Start early and take clockwise to avoid the sun on hotter days. Prefer that direction due to the views and prefer the gain from that side. Great for sunset hikes. Take plenty of water for you and your dog! Wildlife Ive seen includes deer and scorpion :)

    I have done this trail twice - once from the Tom's trail head and more recently from the Gateway Loop. Make sure you do the trail from both 'sides' and each offers a different experience. We did this as a group and the gain was challenging from the Gateway side over. It also started raining so it was interesting to see the desert explode with color as we descended the trail. A few slippery moments.

    Wow. It's not a loop. You go up and down twice. The scenes are breathtaking. First mile is groomed and well placed steps. Second part is down to trail end. Then back up. Go twice from trailhead to first outlook so you can take photos the second time. Loved this hike.

    Great robust AM trail. I like the moderately difficult incline. The trails are not groomed is my only complaint for knee friction as you are navigating rocks down and on the flat trail. Hard to sightsee while looking down. Great views if you make stopping points going up and at the top.
