Loved this trail, took 2- Kids, 6 and 7 years old and they made it to the top. Parking minimal. Beautiful views.

Not enough parking for how popular the trail is. I waited in the overflow lot for a space @ 9:30 on a Sunday morning. The trail itself had great views the whole way, and the 360 degree views from the peak are spectacular. It was 'hold onto your phone with both hands' windy at the peak. Almost all hikers as the trail is not great for running or biking.

Hike gets strenuous, with prolonged gains in elevation, just as you’re about to reach the intersection to turn up to the peak. However, at that point there are amazing views. Enjoyed the hike!

Amazing! This was a little hard, but the top was breathtaking!!! Make sure to have a Tonto pass.

Hiked this morning Sunrise trailhead back to Westworld Trailhead. Good to get the big climb out of the way early. Great trail well worth the climb to the top. Only knock is too crowded. backpackers in training blasting music on a bluetooth speaker people forgetting that their conversations carry very far/loud in the hills really took away from a beautiful morning. Witnessed a proposal on sunrise peak which was cool.

Great hike, and great views at the top including the fountain in Fountain Hills. You can see Four peaks from the top, plus Camelback and Squaw (Piestewa) Peak. You are equally as high as them but this is waaaaaay less crowded than both of them.

Love this hike. It's beautiful with great views entire way! The 360 view from the top is so worth it. Not too busy. Path is well marked and in good shape. Not bad for dog paws and love the dog fountain at the bottom - nice touch!
