Nice elevation gain for a quick walk. There are a lot of blooming plants (April 16th). Very rocky trail! Watch your step

Half of the trail is paved road, whilst the other half is unstable, loose, and rocky terrain. Weird.

Nice views of downtown Phoenix and Tempe off in the distance as well as Paradise Valley. Steep in some places on the descent. Fair amount of people on the trail but didn’t feel crowded.

Warm Saturday late morning hike at North mountain. I choose this hike because the chances of running into snakes here is less. But I find the paved path less challenging, but it surely is steep in parts. Floyd handled the heat pretty well but it may be one of his last hikes for the season.

Slightly more than moderate. Going up is straight incline on paved concrete. Going down is sketchy. Nice views and wildlife. 2300 elevation, about 2.0 miles total for loop

Most beautiful hike thus far. Left loop to the top is very steep with lots of loose rock so definitely worth going up, not down. Rest of hike isn’t too hard (mainly an incline walk). Great short hike!!

This is a very short hike. I'm not a fan of the pavement area but the other side after you reach the top I like.

I haven’t been hiking for about a year I am two months post Covid. So it was a little tiny bit challenging for me to start. But I will be back because I loved it

Great views! Challenging if you start out clockwise. Some of the trail is paved but was a welcome reprieve from the rock climbing. Saw a little bit of wildlife and quartz.
