This is a short but nice hike with some mild elevation and changing terrain.

My husband and I went this evening and it was beautiful. We enjoyed seeing the different types of trees and huge boulders. Everything was so unique. Can’t wait to finish the other trails around this one tomorrow!!

it was our first time and we loved it. tons of cool boulders to look at and the views from the top are awesome. Our dog enjoyed climbing on rocks and there's some spots with good shade to take breaks if needed.

People ignore the dog leash rule.. My dog kills other dogs that invade my space. otherwise a great moderate hike.

Great hike! Pretty rocky so definitely a moderate level. Get some great views of Flagstaff throughout the hike. Good mix of incline and decline throughout.

It was beautiful and not too strenuous of a hike the only thing that made it rough was the altitude since we’re not used to it. We went early March and the trail was pretty muddy with snow scattered around but the temperature was great since it was cool but the sun was shining. There weren’t any wildflowers but the views were still nice mixed in with the snow.

Did this hike in January with quite a bit of ice and snow on the trail. Good workout with the modest elevation gain. Good option if you are on a tight schedule.

Went out in snow today, had a great hike. Walked to it and got on wrong trail, so had to cross country back to it. At the top of the loop the wind and snow picked up, so came back down instead of continuing. Could not see Flagstaff, could imagine was all alone in the wilderness was a blast.

An easy but very satisfying walk. I don't know who the Fat Man was, but he had great taste in trails!

This trail was fun, we got lost though on the trail and ended up just turning around to get back to the trailhead. Definitely enjoyed still!

One of my favorite quick hikes in Flagstaff, AZ. Great bike ride, trail run or casual hike to bring guests.

A couple spots to hike a bike but rewarding downhill.
