Very beautiful trail for moderate hikers. It's a little bit tough for average mountain biking, since there's quite a bit of climbing and rocking path. However, the view a long the trail is spectacular

The location makes it a great trail to hop on for a quick hike, or connect through to longer, more challenging hikes too. Great spot to watch the sunset over Scottsdale. Pretty busy trail.

Trail is in good shape. Pretty steady up then down. Extremely busy, and with that comes many people that are unaware of trail etiquette. Decent views. Overall kinda boring. The side trails looked more interesting.
