Really pretty views the whole way and a beautiful 360 at the top! The person in the watch tower might even greet you :)

great steady climb and always meet fun hikers on the trail.

I took off at 6:30am.. great hike! not counting 4 brief rests, I made it to the Lookout in 1:45. From the cabin to the lookout (.3 mi) is the roughest and steepest part. It probably takes 10 to 15 min for most. Awesome view it was pretty clear. I'll post some pic's.

Was steered to this trail because Humphrey’s was closed and pleasantly surprised. Same distance and similar elevation change as Humphrey’s making it challenging without all the boulders, roots and other booby traps that can make Humphrey’s so tedious and treacherous at times. Definitely going back soon and would highly recommend. Great views too.

I've lived in Flagstaff nearly my entire life and hadn't ever hiked KP. Due to recent forest closure, it was one of the only options. Loved the trail. It is well maintained and easy to follow. Great view at the top. Did it early in the morning and was never hit by the sun until the very top. Only a handful of people on the trail which surprised me because it was 4th of July. The trailhead was easy to find if even though it is 30-40 minute drive from town.

This is the worst trail I’ve ever hiked. If you like crowds of ppl every 5 minutes this is the trail for you. If you like solitude definitely go somewhere else!

Got stuck in a snow storm and missed cairns on the way down ! The trail is very hard to follow due to fallen trees and burnt areas. Cannot comment on the views since weather was pretty bad ( understatement).

Absolutely incredible hike! I highly recommend this hike for anyone who wants a tough day of hiking, an amazing view, and a great trail. The watch tower at the top is an added bonus!

Amazing views! The hike was not too difficult and was quite nice the whole way up. Warning! There were a lot of trees in the path from falling over but it only makes it more of an adventure! :)
