My very first Arizona hike! Gorgeous in March!!! Wildflowers in "superbloom", everything was SO INCREDIBLY GREEN!!! Difficult trail on a hot day (and distance is more like 8.4 from parking lot!) ...sturdy footwear recommended! $3.00 fee required but totally worth it for the views/serenity/and "facilities" at trailhead!

Great easy trail. We did it after going up Black Mountain. Very well maintained.

The trail was okay but it is very hard to walk on due to very rocky terrain and less maintenance. I would give 5 stars if some maintenance done to the trail which makes hiking more enjoyable. There are little shades so I would not recommend to hiking during summer time.

Many unmarked trails is my only negative comment. This is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert and feels like you have been enveloped by greenery. The trails are easy enough you do not feel as if you are climbing even though you are gaining elevation. Plenty of parking and restrooms at the start. All around great hike.

This is definitely a must hike trail if you want to just relax and enjoy being with nature. Absolutely beautiful and a great easy hike. Stop and cool your feet in the creek, sit on the hill top bench and meditate or explore the cave. Lovely!

one of my favorite hikes. However bring $3 cash per hiker as county has volunteers working collecting on the trailhead

Beautiful easy hike that makes you feel like you're away from the city.

Great hike with views of the whole valley atop the mesa! From the Cardinals stadium to Weavers Needle and everything in between. Indian ruins, streams, deers and desert... it doesn't get much better than this.
