Nice little trail, no scrambling but still some inclines to reckon with. Beware unclaimed poops throughout first third or so. Picked up some trash along the way. Great views of the city and cactus!

Easy but long hike. In any trail in south mountain phx, you need water and hat.

A little sandy. Fun, easier trek. Would probably rate it moderate myself due to the climb.

Great hike. I've done it multiple times. Not to difficult if you exercise regularly. Good intermediate trail for everyone and the view is great from the top. It does cross the road towards the end so do be cautious during busy times. It is in a valley most of the way so you can have shade most of the hike depending on the time of day and year. I also see equestrians and mountain bikers on the trail so I'm sure you could ride it as well.

We went early (arrived at 7:15) and there were not a lot of people but on the way back down there were about 4 or 5 groups heading up. Loved the views and it was super easy. We were finished with the hike by 9 but it only took so long because we were going off of the trail to check stuff out for a long time. Definitely would recommend to anyone no matter the skill level

This was a great hike, and really quite beautiful. Be prepared for a lot of deep steps (easier going up than coming down). When we went at 6 AM, and if there were already quite a few people on the trail. We hooked up with the National trail after we finished the Kiwanis section, which I do recommend. Very dog friendly. I would absolutely go back for the step workout.

An easy, but beautiful, trail on South Mountain. Fun for all ages. Once you reach the end of the trail you can keep going up to the Telegraph Lookout for even bigger views. Watch for petroglyphs along the trail. Great trail.
