If you're not in great shape avoid during the summer. While I was there two people had to be air lifted off the mountain. I did the entire thing Echo Canyon to Cholla and back approximately 8-9 miles took about 4.5 hours not my best time but the heat was intense averaging 110-115 as always bring more water than you think you'll need.

Arrive early to get parking and beat the heat. Bring more water than you think you will need - a snack at the peak is a good call. Excellent hike!

I'm 56. This was challenging but doable! A lot of people on the weekends.

Excellent hike. Hard and amazing! Best full hike so far and my favourite!

Challenging hike- loved it

Bring more water than you think. The trail can be very congested at times.

Beautiful area! Trail is clearly marked and railings help on the steep parts. Bring lots of water.

Beautiful trail, very steep at times. Make sure you pack plenty of water. Drank at least two liters of water.
