Awesome! Falls were dry but it was still beautiful and fun. :) The Pomeroy Tanks were gorgeous, walk further back to see water lilies and frogs.

Pretty strenuous hike and my husband and I are pretty avid hikers. Falls were dry which didn’t make the 11.5 mile hike worth it.

Realy nice place
But i was lost on trail
I think you have to gate a gps to do it

Me and a friend finished this trail in 5 hours and some few minutes **brushes shoulder off ** which includes getting lost on a few falsely appearing right paths that actually ended up leading to nothing and having to turn back. I ended up at 12 miles total. When hitting double tanks, we saw an interesting character who asked us if we saw the big waterfall and we hadn’t reach that point, so she led us clear across the forest off path straight to sycamore falls (we were convinced she was some forest dweller or extraterrestrial) however she took us to sycamore falls and then she disappeared. We could have easily missed the falls because it’s not actually a destination on this trail; one must cross over a rocky river bed to sycamore falls trail and take the trail to the tank so plan your visit accordingly. Thank you forest lady!

I must say whoever the younin’ is that threw the soccer ball into the tank at sycamore falls...why bro!!!!???? I also recon to download the trail so ya don’t get lost; I downloaded it and still got lost. The water was frozen and started to melt and it was so beautiful. The forest..beautiful. The rocks...beautiful. Loved the part where the trail follows into pomeroy tanks. Didn’t see Bigfoot like I had hoped but I was overly satisfied with this trail and can’t wait to go back.

loved it!!! perfect family hike.

My first time doing this trail today so I’m not sure how it normally is. But there was a blanket of snow covering a decent amount of the trail. As a previous review said the views at the top are pretty obstructed by buildings and towers but awesome views the last couple miles of the hike.
Took my dog and I about 3 hours and 10 minutes in total walking pretty quickly.
Definitely worth doing just be prepared

Very easy hike! Sublime views of the often overlooked terrain only twenty three miles south of the Grand Canyon. I did see large cat tracks freshly made and have heard rumors of people spotting and/or bagging mountain lions in this area. I tend to hike alone as most of my friends are sedentary however the next time I hike this trail I will do so with others!

Nice quiet trail. I did this in January so there’s a bit of snow and it’s pretty muddy in spots. But well maintained. Cute little box Canyon at the end. Nice short and easy trail.

Rocky trail, but the view on the top is great. dogs can use these trail.

Awesome afternoon trail! Headed up around noon hung out at top for a bit then back down in 45mins. Beautiful views of the canyon and San Fransico peaks. Rocky trail so bring the right shoes!

Easy trail. Lots of animal tracks was a little disconcerting. Views at the end were ++

Well worth the effort. The views in all directions are pretty amazing but looking toward Flagstaff into the volcanic field is spectacular. I agree with a previous poster here to keep a lookout for rattlesnacks. You never know when you’re going to get hungry.

Great run. About 9 miles to the lookout and back on a good single track with only a few steep sections. It's fairly moderate on the way up and cruiser on the way down. Beautiful scenery and no one on the trail on xmas day.

The towers at the top and the fact that the trail crosses the road up in several spots does detract a star.

Did this hike in November and I may have missed the fall colors but the temperature was perfect and the hike was still amazing.

One of the best best hikes I’ve done in the state. The whole trial took me 5.5 hours. I spent a lot of time at the Vista overlook. It’s a very flat hike for most of the time. Very easy overall. I only lost the trail at the very end of trail after KA Hill. But it was easy to find again. Make sure and do the loop clockwise. The trailhead directions on this app were Vital.

Perfect trail for our 6 and 4 year olds. Well marked and awesome to see the petroglyphs at the end!

Nice and short. Would be good for kids.

Great trail.

A few sections are tricky. The trail can sometimes be hard to find, and it’s very rocky. Still, the view is absolutely worth it, though you may just want to take the Vista Point trail to quickly reach it.

Fun short hike. Nice autumn foliage color. Loved seeing the petroglyphs.

The trailhead is in the far Southeast corner of the KOA campground. Go through the gate, please make sure you close any gate you open due to cattle.

Petroglyphs were amazing. Nice little box canyon with a pretty little aspen grove.

Beautiful trail, lots of wildlife. As with other reviews, I lost the trail in a few spots in the last 2 miles and had to backtrack. The trail area near the tanks has a number of different offshoots. If you find yourself thinking you have to climb a rock wall, backtrack a little to look for the trail out. I showed 13.6 miles on my fitbit. Although the trail is relatively flat, the last part of the trail is uphill. Remember the sunscreen, as a good part of it is open to intense sun on the rim.

I thought this was an overall great hike. It was challenging enough and I enjoyed the scenery on the way up. The trail was easy to follow and well marked. It was also great for my 20 lb dog.

Cons: when you get to the top...the views are limited and there are buildings and electrical towers that kill the nature vibe.

Absolutely gorgeous. Lush green forest the entire way, which improved after mile marker 1 and even more after mile marker 2, becoming more dense and beautiful. Apparently early fall is the best time to go. Stunning views from the top, even better from the lookout tower. Numerous butterflies and lizards, patchy wildflowers. Weather was perfect. Mild-moderate difficulty, with 5-15% grades interspersed with frequent leveling off. Exceptionally well-maintained trail, with numerous trail markers. The town of Williams is a great place to go after, with some really good restaurants and bars.

This is a great hike! Only saw a few other hikers. It does run along side an ATV road which can be noisy at times and you will also cross it few times. I got 7.5 miles on my GPS. We decided to hike up to the Bill Williams Lookout tower which made it a 10 mile out and back.

We walked here in mid-August, 2017 during the Monsoon season. The trail was teeming with flowers; and there were quite a few mushrooms to be seen. It was a nice walk in the woods. And the box canyon called Keyhole Sink is pretty cool. Look for the reasonably numerous hieroglyphs. And, perhaps, sit by the little pond and see what critters show up. We felt that this trail is a little known gem -- particularly if you are really not in shape for a "real" hike.
