Wonderful trail. Great mix of Oak Pine Juniper. Loved that it went by the creek side. Went to the saddle. Mileage was between eight and nine round trip. Cheers!

We hiked in about an hour, but the trail became snow packed & slick, so we turned back. The small portion that we did hike was great: beautiful scenery ( pine trees, water in the creek & mountain vistas) & Cave Creek was flowing due to the recent rains & snow. We will return later in the Spring & hike this trail again.

HikingGreat!

Really nice moderate trail with some steep sections. The saddle at the top is perfect for taking a snack break and lounging a bit. Hiked on a Thursday morning and didn’t see anyone on the trail or anywhere near the trailhead. There are a couple spots along the trail that could be used for camping, but there was no running water in any of the creeks so make sure to pack in all of your water.

The trail is mostly in the shade, making it possible to do also in summer, however I suggest to avoid the hottest hours of the day. In the first 1/3 of the trail you hike close to a crick with water (at least there was water on the 31 May), which is nice in Arizona. In the last part of the trail in some spot the vegetation is more scarce allowing to see a beautiful view. Even if I did this trail in the weekend I met only one person during the entire time.
