Great hike. Some loose rocks on way down. Great view from top and cute squirrels. $6 to enter Usery Park.

Great hike, definitely easy. Took 3 boys ages 2, 5 and 7 they all enjoyed the view at the top. Having the playground nearby and the outdoor fitness equipment was fun for the family. We wished we would have packed a lunch and spent the whole day.

Easy hike with a gradual incline the whole way.

Very crowded and a narrow path.

My 11 year old daughter and I are novice hikers. We really enjoyed this trail. It was not too difficult and had a great view from the saddle. My daughter wanted to go up higher from there, but the trail dwindles and there are a ton of jumping cholla. I will return to hike up to the saddle though. Not a lot of traffic. Bring plenty of water!

Very nice trail! We saw some deer and got within 50 feet of a group of wild horses!

It was beautiful but crowded when you add in our two dogs on the narrow trail. Some bigger rocks but manageable. There were quite a few bees at the top this time of year so be cautious if you have an allergy.

Nice easy trail to start with. Well marked at intersections with other trails.

Seemed shorter than advertised. Little bit of a climb but then it was over. Provably good if you are just getting back into hiking.

I have a new favorite hike! Beautiful views await! Hiked to the trail from mckellips which made for a total round trip of 10.75 miles. Went counter-clockwise as I prefer to ascend the rocky side than descend. Enjoy!

This is my opinion.. it’s a beautiful hike. Actually, I would not even call it a hike but a walk in the desert. My mom who is 71 found this trail very easy since there is little elevation; after we finished the whole loop, she wanted to do a bulldog saddle and pass mountain trail loop

A perfect day for a hike! This was a challenging hike at times...but well worth it at the end!

The views on this trail are gorgeous! You can see from AJ and Mesa to seeing the fountain in Fountain Hills! It offers some difficulty in the east side of the mountain, but overall a pretty moderate hike!

2-6-2018 Hiked with my Son! Beautiful scenery!! Hand fed the little critters pistachios up in the cave! Love this hike!!

over all a good hike. can get long if it is very hot. Not a beginner walk if making the full loop. Bicycle rider's do not follow good trail ettique.

good easy hike, challenging the last .4 miles but the view is worth every step

just moved to Arizona and an inexperienced hiker. this was my first trail I did yesterday. mapped well, a little challenging for a beginner because of rocks but not difficult..more just unexpected. short. good work out, did it in about an hour

I’d give it a 4.5 stars if I could. I really enjoyed the hike and the views! My feet would’ve been very upset with me if I hadn’t just recently replaced the soles of my hiking shoes though. Pretty rocky. I would recommend it though!
