From Tempe take hwy 51 North. Exit on Shea blvd and turn right for about 2 to 3 miles. Then turn right again on 40th st and go to the end as it ends on the trailhead.

I only give this a 3 because I am comparing it to the McDowell mountain trails that I usually do. Loose rock so make sure you wear good shoes! Mostly wash rock. Great workout up and pretty good views at the top.

Camelback was packed so I came here instead. Was not disappointed. 1 hour car to car.

I very much enjoy this hike and the beautiful views. The terrain is steep in some areas and there is quite a bit of loose rock which makes the trail a little tough.

Good workout for a short hike. Very nice 360 views at the top. Really an out and back trail as the loop is very short. Appropriate footwear goes a long way here.

Excellent workout.
Loose rock can be challenging.

There’s some incline areas that make it “hard” , but this is only a 3 mile round trip .. I’m done in about 1 1/2 hours ( that’s with resting at top to enjoy the view) .. if you just want a quick workout with good incline this is the hike for you ! This is my easy go to hike when I don’t want to travel to far. Wear good hiking shoes to avoid slipping and falling !

The hike to the top was pretty challenging but fun. Bring lots of water. It's got some good incline.
