Parked at Montezuma Pass parking lot, departed at about 8:00A.M. It took us about 2hr. 45min to reach the top (with brief stops throughout) and then about 1hr. 40min (with no stops) for the return trip. Very fun. Very scenic. You can see the parts of the U.S.-Mexico border wall from certain points. Very diverse trail segments. They'll be a half mile stretch where you feel like you're trudging through a desert then another half mile where you're in a coastal forest and then another where you're traveling along the wildflower ridden hills of Montana! There was no elevation sign at the top. This mountain complex can be subject to sporadic storms, so come prepared for that. The encroaching vegetation on some portions of the trail was very wet from overnight rain (soggy socks, yum), so if that does not float your boat...well then bring extra socks! Definitely the best hike in the Sierra Vista area.

Great hike! 500 ft elevation change over a short distance. The cave is fun to explore. Remember to bring a flashlight and watch for bats.

With 20lb backpack about 2 hours hiking up the trail from the visitor center to the parking lot on montezumas pass. 1 hour back down the dirt road. 7 mile trip this way. No running water. Trail well maintained. didnt see anyone but a flock of scrreching bluebirds. I liked this hike because it kept changing. desert to narrow rocky path to ridgeline back down a windy dirt road with great view of the stars

Moderate. First mile and 1/2 are up and up, then the grades are pretty moderate and steady.

Narrow trail but well worn. We didn't see another person the whole hike. The trail could be dangerous but we did it with our kids aging from 10 to 15. Spectacular views.

Excellent canyon trail through a fire-scarred gully over beautiful quartz of every shade. From the main trailhead on the primitive road, park and walk up the main to find an entry point on your left. The first one is about 100 yards up the road. Evidently you can keep going all the way up McCabe's Peak -- I'll bring oxygen.

I am so glad I did this hike. Amazing views and I very surreal feel when nobody else is really on the trail. Quiet and peaceful. Hike starts with pretty steady inclines and is then pretty easy until you get about a mile to the summit. Incline picks up and I was hiking through snow. It was very cold at the top, I suggest a windbreaker. Worth the drive down from Phoenix. Make sure you are in shape though and bring at least 3 liters of water!
