Fun hike. I've done this one twice and haven't had any problems with it

So I’m pretty sure I’m the only person in the world that managed to get lost on this trail. Just be sure to park, and literally go straight up and through the barbed wire fence :)

This was an enjoyable hike! Clean, scenic, and it was really cool to see so much wildlife!

Fun trail with great views and the cave is awesome! Steep towards the top and a few spots to climb over some rocks - which makes it fun!

Great hike. A ton of fun and a great view. Harder towards the top.

It’s a great hike. It gets steep near the top and you really need proper hiking shoes or trail running shoes with really good grip. I saw several people fall over. I found it harder going down - loose rock etc. It took as 1.20hr going up and we are of average fitness. People had their dogs.

I rated this 5 stars due to the views and how many landmarks you see along the way that call to be explored.

That being said, trekking through boulder canyon sucks. Especially in nike runners (my mistake). Definitely use boots on this trail and be prepared for lots of rock hopping.

This is a great hike. Starts easy but gets really steep towards the top. I had to take several brakes close to the top. Once you get in the cave, it is all worth it. It is a lot cooler and worth the view. A fun hike!

Made the mistake of going when it was 100 degrees out. There’s no shade until you get to the cave. The last part of the hike is pretty steep. Had to get on all 4s to get down some of the boulders and did slip a couple times. The wave was pretty cool and we had fun taking pictures. Would only recommend going when it’s cooler outside. I didn’t find the trail difficult to follow at all.

We loved this hike. I took my 8 year old. I would recommend a hiking shoe as there is some loose rock and the end of the trail and it gets steep. At the end.It is worth the beautiful view and the cave was bigger than I expected.

cool little hike with a sweet swell at the end

Really awesome climb with a rewarding view. Saw some mountain goats as well!! lol

Great hike, lots of shade at the top. Trail was a little hard to follow at the base but got way better. My golden retriever loved the shade and sand to play in at the cave.

Totally worth the hike. Things to know: there is absolutely no shade the whole way up, but there is plenty at the top. The trail is easy to follow if you go straight through the fence and follow the trail (if it forks, don't follow the path that has rocks blocking the way on the ground). Of course, bring a lot of water.

Love this beautiful hike!

First let’s start out that this is a great trail with lots of EVERYTHING you could look for in a trail. As the previous hike noted, past the saddle there IS NO trail, and barely any markers. And since no water was to be found except for some pools in the river canyon. Navigation thru the washes was very time consuming. Running low on water, I ended up loosing the trail at the SW boot trying to navigate the boulder canyon and needed to call 911 to get SAR to help me. The red line GPS on the AllTrails app was extremely unreliable after the saddle. You are on you own navigating and finding the trail to the west side loop trail. As the GPS line will tend to drift you away from the loop trail on the SW corner. Do yourself a favor and download and use the SAT layer map to find the trail again. THIS TRAIL IS NOT FOR UNEXPERIENCED HIKERS

Great hike! Challenging toward the end as most have said.
From the parking lot it was actually 1.5 miles out and back, not 3 as the app says. The trail is not marked so just keep walking straight and go past the barbwire fence. Also, the road to get to it is all dirt and rock, could be a challenge for smaller cars to navigate (wish we would have known). Bring lots of water! Enjoy

Nice inline, definalty have a lot of water if it's hot outside, since towards the end it gets fairly steep. Well worth it, beautiful view.

Such a fun beautiful hike. If you bring a dog please pack the poop out. So many people leave the poop bags at the entrance. Don’t be a Ricard. Leave the places you visit how you found them.

outstanding! think this trail should be listed as difficult. it's not far but. it is steep in spots. some people may have to use their hands. but we'll worth it.. enjoy!

Awesome hike. closer to 12 miles not 11.5 not that it makes a huge difference. Once you hit the ridge it's a bit of choose your own adventure of going boulder hoping or staying low on dirt.

fun hike, a little hard towards the end but very well worth it.

Spectacular views of Battleship Mountain, Weever’s Needle and more. The drive to the trailhead is worth doing for the sights on the way even if you don’t hike an inch. Great challenge and worth every drop of sweat for the views!

The route shown is to Superstition Mtn. Robber Roost is a right turn when you get to the saddle above Carney Spring. Then like in the youtube video you continue over to Fremont Saddle. This is a very tricky trail to follow until you get out of the small canyon that you follow off the saddle. Basic rule is all ways go right at a junction, except for the couple of times when you go left when you are on top.

I say it’s easy till you climb up, then it’s boulder hopping, I had to return for family or else I would of stayed longer. . The views take your breathe away, don’t do this trail in the heat. Bring more water than you think is required, bring snacks and enjoy. It was great to hike with some fearless souls. I will be back!!!!!!

Started at Canyon Lake and hiked about 7 miles in until I needed to turn back due to time constraints. Well-marked trail with rock cairns but there was no obvious “end”. The best views were in the first half of the hike; the second half was still interesting but was lower down. Very few people, pretty hot (some nice breezes, though), parking across the street at the marina, and really only moderate in terms of difficulty.

Great hike, easy except the last part up to the cave itself, but well worth it

Went for the first time today. One of my new favorite hikes.

Absolutely beautiful.

Not too difficult for me, but still a good workout. Pretty long hike so go prepared.
