Gateway crowded. Trail to Lookout and levee not crowded at all. Beautiful. Fun abandoned mine up by the lookout.

First day in Scottsdale and needing to get out in the gorgeous outdoors, goal accomplished.!Started around 9:30 and finished around 11:30. My Fitbit said 5 miles, rocky and a bit steep in a couple spots but overall I’d agree a moderate level....FYI I’m a flat lander from Kansas and nearing my 70th BD!

Did Gateway Trail today. Got an early start at 6:00 am, immediately after the park opened up. There was a traffic jam waiting for the gate to open. There's nothing like a sunrise hike in the mountains. The sun crept slowly over the mountains as I moved ahead. Fell down one time, but I was all alone and nobody saw me. No harm, just jumped up and moved on. Saw lots of hikers and lots of dogs. A few runners and one mountain bike, too. Good little hike.

I got turned around. I ended up doing a loop of the gateway and then going up to the pass and back down. Little over 10 miles. Great hike. The bugs were so bad it was difficult to stop at all. Not so many bugs at the top of the path. A little bit of cloud cover made this an amazing and beautiful hike.

Wonderful trail. They were warning of snakes, but didn’t see one in the 4.5 miles I hiked.

First to Review

We tried counter clockwise this time and highly recommend it for a steep beginning and a more gradual decline to finish off the hike. Still great weather and even when the parking lot is mostly full the trail doesn't feel too crowded if you're not running it.
