This is a long hike and you wont see to many people on until your near the end. there is no water anywhere on this trail so bring plenty.

Wonderful hike, not too steep. Moderate difficulty if you are ready for the length. East side is heavy with mountain bikes after 10.

National trail trek! Kim Baugh, Dani Wilde and me- we went off trail for 1/2 mile and had to back track- but otherwise this was a great trail!

Beautiful day, my brother and I just walked around for a bit admiring the flowers, rock formations and views of the city. Didn’t do the whole 11 miles as we had no destination in mind.

It's pretty level, but the last couple miles are just killer! You're tired and there is nothing pretty to look at :-(

Did part of this from Mormon Loop/Pina wash trail. Updated the map, because this trailhead is not actually in the South Pacific.
