Hikers, walkers, sightseers and runners alike flock to this prominent peak like moths to a flame, drawn here in part because of it proximity to the city of Phoenix. Despite the crowds this mountain can still be a lot of fun, offering as it does a short but taxing climb and many great views along the short route.

Did this hike for the first time with my 9 year old daughter like some people say a stair climber all the way feels like it never ends but every false summit u hit the only thing u can think of eventually u will get to the top summit and you will ,,brought lunch and lots of water just took our time and enjoyed the views people were all nice you run into on the way up. I would recommend doing this hike early morning before the afternoon heat. Parking lot fills up fast there are other parking lots to park don't have to be right at the summit trail lot love to do this again some time it definitely is a work out for the legs and cardio!!

Had a great time on this trail; I'd say it is closer to moderate than hard but it was a fun hike. It was busy on the trail and a lot of people run it. Best views of the valley and downtown PHX.

This trail is great! View is worth it, fairly moderate until you're close to the summit, where you're met with some steeper rocks that are seemingly intimidating but easy to overcome!

Fun, short hike. Trail is solid entire way, but would recommend Chacos or good trail shoes.

This was a nice easy hike to start. The last bit was a good challenge but the views at the top were worth it! Great for cardio if you run the flat parts and awesome for legs since there are a lot of stairs!
