Also known as "The Big Loop" and traverses multiple connecting trails in the Chiricahua NM. Begin at the Echo Canyon trailhead, connect to Upper Rhyolite Canyon, then to Sarah Deming, to the Heart of Rocks Loop, pass the Big Balanced Rock to Inspiration Point (the walk on Inspiration Point adds 1 mile to his loop hike), then continue to Mushroom Rock and end via Ed Riggs to complete the loop.

Great moderate hike to see the hoodoos and balanced rocks. You can still see the effects from a fire in 2011. We did extra mile to Inspiration Point and it was worth it. Highly recommended

One of the most beautiful area that I have hiked. The loop is a must and heart of the rocks must be taken. Hiked on 3 April 2016

The road to the trail head had snow on the shoulder. The trail had snow and ice on the north side. The views are worth the two hour drive and the cooler weather. Late January. Great area.

Beautiful trail. Short climb at the beginning. Took a couple spur trails. Don't pass the Heart of Rocks, work the extra miles.
