Hiked this with friends this morning. Lots of great desert and red rock scenery. Just gorgeous when the lake comes into view! We took yellow trail through the crack to the lake and then up and over the blue trail. Invigorating 5+ miles, lots of climbing on blue trail, but not as much loose gravel as yellow. Great workout with spectacular views

My husband really enjoyed this hike. Going through the canyon was awesome. I would suggest doing it before the temperature is above 70. We came out at a cool 65, yet had to take layers down to a t-shirt. bring water, you can hike over to a bathroom at the lake, not too far. Very enjoyable.

Loved this hike! Took the yellow trail out through the crack and the blue trail back. Total distance was 5.4 miles. The trail through the crack follows a wash and is sandy and/or lots of small pebbles. Walk through the amazing high rock walls of the crack ending at the lake. Beautiful views! The blue trail is hard pan with some elevation gain. Definitely recommend this hike.

loved the hike. moderate is definitely accurate, some steep slopes and elevations with slippery conditions. if you go beyond the crack you can go straight to the lake where you go to balancing Rock Cove and then you can come back to the trailhead. It says 3 hours for the hike being experienced and stopping we made the hike in less than 3 hours. January temperature in the sixties with lots of sunshine.

I hike Sara's Crack several times per year. (Weather permitting.) DO NOT hike during the summer months. It is extremely hot and we've had to rescue several people who have underestimated the elements. Even the most skilled and seasoned hikers need not hike this trail during the summer. This is a moderate hike and the trail/scenery changes annually due to monsoons and flooding. There is a section of trail where you will need to either lower yourself down using the rope provided or pull yourself up. It is currently an approximately 14' drop. Be sure to take plenty of water (but don't forget your sodium. Sometimes water is not enough), wear a hat and sunglasses, and layer up so you can remove clothing as needed. Once you reach the waters edge there is a permanent outhouse structure and a covered picnic table. It is a very nice area to rest and cool off. Note, you are hiking out in a natural habitat. The chances of you coming across Mountain Sheep, Rattle Snakes, Wild Burros, etc. is very high. Do not hike alone. Never leave anything of value in your vehicle at the parking areas. And most important - Have Fun!
