Beautiful scenery! Go east on the loop for the greater challenge. Go west to summit and return on same path if you want an easier hike

Great hike! Beautiful Desert landscape! It’s not well marked and can be a bit confusing. We made it to the summit with the rock pile. Then we saw the peak with the flag. We were not sure if we had made it to the actual summit. But then I read that there are two summits that are equal in height. We also could not distinguish the trail from one summit to the other in order to complete the loop. But nevertheless it was a beautiful hike and a great workout. At the fork in the trail where there is a wooden board sticking up, we went right. That route is a steep and rugged incline. I’ve read the left route is a smoother trail with a slow incline.

Great hike!

Started the hike around 6:45 pm in the dark, finished just after 9:00. From what we could see it was surreal, beautiful area.

When you come to the fork in the trail for a short steep trip to the top go right, for a longer gradual trip up go left.

Right pretty much goes around the butte in front of Daisy then loops around the side and goes straight up.

Left goes around the butte to the backside of Daisy, your cross a lot of little washes, and spend a lot of time down low in the valley but it’s pretty. You’ll cross a dirt road, don’t follow the road just go across it and there should be a few stones marking the trail entrance.

The trail is accurately rated.

I didn't quite know what to expect when I started since it seemed so flat at the beginning. Once you get to the loop it gets more exciting! Surprised there wasn't more hikers, what do people who live in Anthem do?
