Extremely well made and well marked trail. No shade other than small mesquite grove about two mi up trail as well as in the lee of some large rocks along way, as well as at the "Falls". No water at Falls or in creekbed at all May 17. Modest number of hikers early on a Sunday morning.

Great marked trail, and awesome workout! Two sections towards the top end that are pretty rocky. There was only an insignificant drip at the falls, but I have gone two other times in the past when it had water and it was gorgeous! The elevation gain also seemed easier this time. I saw a Gila Monster today so I was happy I am @gentwolf3

This a great out and back for a half day. I went yesterday with a high of 82° so it got a little spicy since I started my hike at 11am (trying to avoid crowded trails means going at unpopular times) Good amount of elevation. Hardly any water at the fall so I scrambled up the left side near a tree and found a few shallow pools on top of the falls itself. Lots of good views and a couple of nice cottonwoods to take a break at on the way out. Happy adventures! Remember to Leave no Trace. Check out my local AZ adventures on Instagram: @saritamendez

Waterfall at the end is gorgeous as well as the views of the mountains throughout. Some steep elevation at times, trail well marked.

Great hike. It is beautiful. There is no shade and the way to the falls is all uphill. It’s a little strenuous for young kids, especially on a warm day. But the falls are fun and the hike back was all downhill allowing for time to take in the beautiful views of the desert. There is very little water flowing. And the cacti are beginning to bloom.

I liked this trail, it was very gradual with beautiful scenery. The waterfall was a strong trickle, it felt sooo good to stand under! I was cooled down for the hike back. Big wildlife excitement for the day was seeing a roadrunner. Many cacti in bloom. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

Not my favorite trail but still some beautiful sights. 2 waterfalls. one was running and the other was pretty much dry. The running waterfall was on the Ernie Falls trail. we did nearly get bit by a Rattlesnake that didn't warn us until we were within a foot or so of it.

This is a heavily trafficked trail system for good reason. Great views of the city, a great workout hike, and the waterfall can be really pretty after some good rains. Trail is full sun the whole time so go early in the morning during summer. Add the Garwood damn loop on after this for an extra challenge and not be an out and back hike.

First time on this trail and loved it. Well maintained. Beautiful scenery. Small falls at the end, which will probably be dried up soon. Saw a large Gila Monster.

Actual .2 mile long Bridal Wreath Trail has a cool bosque of small trees. There are some steep climbs on each segment above Converse Trail on the stone waterbar|steps found on trails in the park.

Really gorgeous trail especially this time of the year with the wildflowers blooming. Just be mindful of rattlesnakes. We came across one on the trail and saw another snake on the way back.

Really enjoyed this trail. It starts at the Douglas Spring Trailhead. I would say that the trail was on the strenuous side as it is a steady uphill climb for the first 3 quarters before it levels out. But it is so scenic you don’t mind. Falls at the end were flowing.

This trail is well maintained and easy to follow. It's moderately challenging, lots of steps. The waterfall at the end is a beautiful place to rest and have some lunch.

Beautiful waterfall at the end. Definitely worth the steady uphill climb to get there.

First time hiking in Saguaro. Relatively easy grade. Clear steps the brief moments it gets steeper. The falls weren’t raging or anything but it was a nice reward on top of stunning scenery the whole time. (I stopped for photos a lot and included that in the time.) Took a few off-shoots on the way back but paused the timer for those. Around dusk the critters came out and it sounded lovely.

It’s actually 3.5 miles not 2.8 miles to the falls. I can see why this rated as moderate. It’s starts easy at first but then you start climbing up these stone steps and woody and rock like steps. The waterfall was nice. Too bad I couldn’t get closer since I didn’t want to climb up the rocks. What a hike!
