Not that well marked. Moderate to hard. You know you're at the top when you find the American flag. Great views from top make it worth it.
43 mins with a 45lbs pack on. I think it is harder then piestewa peak is easier the this one.
Great hike in the Cave Creek area. Short but sweet with elevation gain comparable to Piestawa, but much less crowded. Would definitely do this one again!
43 minutes up.
Glad I had my hiking pole for the way down.
Hard is accurate due to the climbing. However it is a short hike up and down!
Steep, "short" hike with an amazing view!
Challenging but the view is worth it!
