Many trail options. Amazing View and easy to follow trails that are easy to intense. Great place. I did over 7 miles and only scratched the surface.

I live close and do this hike at least 2 times a week. You can see all of awhatukee and even climb to the top of South mountain. Great work out for running.

This is a very nice scenic trail... Well established trail, not much rock hopping ... smooth path. But, elevation can be taxing... Go early, watch the Sunrise.

Awesome trail. Well marked and very easy to follow. The first 1.5 out is fairly gradual. The last mile or so to the summit will give your cardio a test. Lots of other hikers, runners and dog walkers. BRING WATER.

We went left when we should have gone right but 7.7 mikes later it was still a great hike. Some areas are rough on the knees but have a great time!

You can tell me that it's not a good trail but I think that it is one of the most beautiful things to see on a mountain

Nice trail, no pyramid though. At the top where the pyramid is supposed to be, only a rubble of rocks, if you do not miss it. I missed it on the way up, so I walked all the way to the other end , Telegraph pass looking for it. Only on the way back someone told me that, the pyramid was demolished. But, great views throughout the hike. A bit of a leg workout on the way up and down.
