Very rocky but excellent views.

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

Fun hike, a bit rocky :)

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

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!

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

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.

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!

Great, quick after work hike. 30-35 minutes up and down.

Love it! About 25 minutes to the top, can go the switchback route that has more flat spots, or turn right at the fork for a longer more steady incline. Overall, shorter hike with nice views of the lakes below.

OK trail with some elevation, but not enough to get a serious cardio workout. Lots of loose rubble which makes for slippery footing at times. I like to hike this loop, then walk across the picnic area and hike the Sunrise, Coachwhip, Ridgeline Trail. Restrooms and water on site.

Description is accurate; I would add lots of loose rocks to navigate while walking.

Good trail to warm up on or just take an easy stroll.

This trail was a very fun I liked this one a lot not too hard but a nice exercise and varied nice views must try Took me about three hours because I stopped and took some pictures but not too bad

Most of it’s too close to civilization for my liking. But The trails over the Ridgetop sent up to the flag on the sunrise summit are fine.

great afternoon walk.
LOVE the flag at the summit.
Great to sit under the flag and enjoy a bottle of water.
It's classified as moderate to difficult
don't think I'd go that far.
I personally would say easy to low moderate.
There are loose rocks so wear sturdy shoes.

Good hike, great views

Didnt get to finish it because of emergency but overall good ups and downs. Got there at 7am sharp and there were a lot of parking spots but when I came back around 9am it was almost all full. Trail Mix might be a good idea on this trail. There was a good crowd but I didn't find it unbearable. Good cardio for sure!
