Great trail, steady incline, I feel the only reason the trail is not rated easy is because it is very rocky but other than that I'd do it again.

A beautiful scenic hike on the outskirts of Scottsdale.

I really enjoy this trail. It's a good quickie weekday mornings and on weekends if I'm pressed for time.
I usually like going clockwise for the longer more sustained ascents.

One thing I won't understand is how many people I see bring their dogs here when it's entirely too hot! Even on overcast days the ground is hot and your furry friend doesn't sweat like you do!
Please leave your dogs at home in the AC!
