Awesome trail, that is not to challenging. I saw two rattlesnakes on the trail. Be mindful of the trails that intersect with Douglas Springs, especially if your doing the loop. I recommend a 6am start or earlier because there is no shade.

Nice trail. Not difficult. Took me 4 hours at a nice slow enjoy-the-day pace. A nice morning hike! Only a very slight trickle of water at Bridle Wreath and very little water elsewhere. Only saw 10 people on the trail the whole loop on this Monday morning. Lots of flowers.

Nice waterfall but very busy, no restrooms at trailhead

Awesome hike! Did it Monday with my 6yp and 69yo dad. Everyone loved it. Falls were running fast, they were gorgeous.

Trail was in great condition and was very well labeled at all parts. The views from the trail are absolutely amazing with views of the Catalina’s and the town. It definitely gets warm (even in January) with limited shade so I would suggest starting early. Be aware of some pokey plants and even rattlesnakes. Also there’s a good amount of horses (and their poop) along the trail. But overall was a great hike. Very smooth so would even recommend it to trail runners since there were very few loose rocks. Went on a Friday and only ran into a few people. As some people mentioned the falls are pretty dry but still worth the hike for the awesome views.

Well maintained trail with lots of rock steps. The scenery changes as you approach Bridal Wreath Falls, and this section is an out and back diverting from the loop. It is only an extra 1.2 miles rt and worth it to see the falls and green pool below (modest in January). Cool rocks and rock wall to explore. Scramble to base of falls to see the pool. Follow directions to complete the loop. Great way to experience east Saguaro NP. Horses on trail.

Nice loop trail with a variety of terrain. Would like to go back when there is more water at the falls. Very well marked.

Great trail. Nice and flat warm up the first half hour of the hike and then it gets challenging and fluctuates between moderate and difficult but the views of the valley below can be quickly a d easily viewed. Bridal falls is small and usually only trickles most of the time unless there is heavy snow in the mountains which is not often. Bottom line is that it is a very nice hike and adventuresome. Around March or April brings a carpet of beautiful flowers along this hike.
