Best trail in the valley to time and push yourself consistently. Great walking warm up then basically straight up the mountain. Not many people even on the weekend are on the actually peak trail. Can be difficult at times and no flat walking areas once you start up the mountain. Never had issue with parking. Loose rock for much of the hike which does get annoying. Can do as beginner or expert.

Great trail for beginners to experienced trail runners. Most hikers here are from the surrounding neighborhood and are very aware of their trail ettiqute. Can be very technical but manageable for inexperienced hiker. Always a great alternative when Piestawa and Camelback are packed.

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.
