My son-in-law and I go there almost every Sunday morning. It is pretty easy with just enough rocks, turns and elevation changes to make it fun.

Fun little hike with some great views of the temple

this was my beginners hike. I've done it a few times with my boys and they loved it.

Used to run this trail a lot great and fairly easy

Good cardio work out. This was the first time for me on this hike. I will do it again.

Awesome trail

Fun stair-like climb, slow ascend but a lot of rocks to step up.

Very rocky but excellent views.

if you follow the whole loop- coach whip-ridgeline-sunrise-coach whip, it's more like 4 miles. still a good easy/mod hike

I would do counter clockwise next time, too much down hill, and lots of loose rock the entire 7 miles

I had a blast. Good trail. Amazing view from the top with benches to chill or meditate.

Fun hike, a bit rocky :)

Love the flag at the top! Very motivational...

Nice trail for us older folks just starting out

This was an amazing sunset hike to do. It’s fast and easy and you have plenty of time to get to the bottom before dark!

Nice, quick morning hike, 30 minutes up, 30 minutes down. Probably faster if you're not skittish and out of shape like me.

Wonderful view when you reach the top, plus a cute selfie op with the flag. Saw a bunch of lizards sunbathing and whatnot on the way up.

Definitely bring enough water and a hat, especially in the spring and summer.

Great for dogs too!

Disappointed by this trail. So many other better trails in Phoenix. It's fine if you're looking for something short, quick and easy and don't care much about seeing desert flora - not too many cacti here compared to other places.

An easy, convenient trail I find myself on a couple times a week.

Good workout! lots of loose rock in places, awesome views all around. it can be kind of crowded at times.

great for a morning hike and perfect to do with family.

love you Trail walk it with my dog once a week

This park is so crowded, but well maintained and easy to access if you're in a time crunch. There are rocks and the occasional snake, but I do enjoy completing this hike several times a year.

First hike I ever did and now do it routinely. A bit crowded on weekends.

I enjoyed this hike. I wouldn’t call it moderate in difficulty except for the rocky nature of the hike. I’d go again if I lived closer but it wasn’t a hike that I’d travel from the east valley to do again.

lots of traffic, easy and well marked

Love this trail after work! Nice little night hike! Not too difficult and is a good little cardio session!

We like to hike this trail during the week before 3:00...weekends can get crowded, especially parking.
Today when we hiked this trail, we only had to pick up 2 plastic bottles, so pretty clean considering there shouldn't be any littering.
Great trail for a good workout...easy/moderate- a little over 3.5 miles... watch your footing- loose rock... Happy Hiking!
