Beautiful views from the peaks. Highly recommend this trail for a workout. I love AZ trails and the sunshine. Please keep our parks clean and respect all warning signs.

Great views and a good, if somewhat challenging, workout for the casual/recreational hiker. Keep an eye out for loose sand/gravel where you could lose your footing. This is just one of many trails at the park. Great layout with parking and restrooms at this trailhead. I will be going back to try the other trails.

Experienced hikers and those in excellent shape won't find this trail to be difficult at all, but it ought to be rated as "moderate." There are four hills to climb, and the first is the most difficult. There are minor switchback trails going up, but it is pretty steep. Each of them are steep in their own right, so don't take this trail lightly. Hiking shoes/boots is highly recommended, but not required. Assuming you don't take side trails (but, I highly recommend you do), expect the out and back hike to take about 30-40 minutes. Pima Canyon and Beverley Canyon are far more popular trails, but this one has SIGNIFICANTLY better views of the Valley and is a better overall workout. I highly recommend this trail for anyone looking for a pretty short but good intensity hike!
