Hard as fuck the whole way through. We seriously underestimated our time today lol it’s so dark now. Almost never flat, and just everything takes forever. That being said.... it was crazy beautiful. Worth it, just be prepared. Should probably wear pants to protect your legs from branches and thorns too. Just an idea.

overall I echo the several other hackers who say that the trail gets unclear when you get toward the top. technically the top part of this loop is not actually Park trail and therefore is unmarked. since I was by myself and my GPS got a little muddled, I wasn't sure where I was and I turned back instead of completing the loop. I would suggest downloading the satellite layer as well as the trail it might make finding the trail easier. Overall this is a great hike for moderate hikers offers gorgeous views of the superstitions, both front and back, highly recommend.

Trail was pretty overgrown, the descents were precarious but that’s what was advertised. This is a great hike, but I’d you’re not prepared, you’ll find that this hike will wear you out hard.

Incredible.

this trail is not marked clearly which stinks. I got lost several times. the views once you get to the praying hands and bench is beautiful.

beautiful views. pretty easy. kids would like

Hard. Fun. Exhausting

Ended up being 4.8 miles and took us 2.5 hours with time at the top.

Superb! Super points of view! We met cyclists and the state of the road is perfect for them. The road is closed to Tortilla Flat but it is worth it anyway. So many beautiful pictures!

Had to pull out the app a lot to figure out which way to go because there are lots of off-shoot trails, and then parts where the trail seems to disappear. Nice trail though, very rocky for a good portion of the trail.

Super hard hike.

It’s a good hike but it is very easy to get off trail. Also there is no shade so I would go early in the morning if you can. I actually think I ended up on Jacob’s Crosscut but the trails kind of all intertwine so watch your direction!
