Bring plenty of water with you as there is none on the trail. Blue and white markers help with navigating.

One of the hardest hikes in the valley. I've hiked it 5 times and the view is always amazing but be prepared for a 3 hour + hike round trip.

Not for the beginner. You will use your hands at times. 1st half is gentle, then 2nd half is challenging after Syphon Draw. The amazing view will be worth the 2 hour strenuous climb! Loved it.

Life changing, and worth the workout! Views unlike any other. Clear, crisp, cool air at the top. Only a few shady zones that are fun to spend the day at. Great people up there too

Challenging yet rewarding trail. Stay to the left after the basin during the ascent. Look for white or blue paint to mark the trail. My wife and I made the summit in approximately 3 hrs from the parking lot.

Insane hike. Was amazing got technical at some parts and got turned around a little with the unmarked trail. Did this in 105 degree weather and I didn't have an issue, just brought enough water! Views are amazing. It's a full day of hiking so be ready!

Great hike. Not too much traffic in August because it's very hot! Go early, leave early

Probably my favorite hike in the east valley. Fantastic views at the top and even better views if you keep going past the flatiron to the highest point on the mountain. Challenging, with lots of terrain changes, and mostly climbing on the last 2/3 of the hike vs walking on the first 1/3.

This was my first real hike in AZ.. a good portion was more like climbing. Took a long time to get to the top but it's worth it! Bring lots of water for this one
