First off, let me say the view from the summit is one of the best in Southern Arizona. This trail is shaded most of the way, so that definitely helps. There are a ton of switch backs and a lot of elevation gain so bring a TON of water. It was one of the more challenging hikes I’ve completed but definitely worth the 6 hours my three friends and I spent in Madera Canyon.
