Saturday morning, 9:00am-ish, I was alone and saw just two other hikers and 10+ trail bikers.

Trail was heavily used by mountain bikers on the day I hiked it.
Overall enjoyable hike; from trail head to Sunset Point, then the 0.9mi loop, then back the trailhead.
Good hike for people used walking in lower elevations.

Very nice scenery, but as previously mentioned it's a heavily used mountain bike race track. With all the trails in the area, it might be a good idea to designate this one a mountain bike track and choose another for foot traffic only.

Great way to escape the heat of Phoenix. Several bikers and joggers. But trails were wide enough to step aside with no problems.
