Always crowded. Easy hike for all ages.

Great little hike but heavily trafficked, at least when I was there. But gets the heart going and not to hard. I'll definitely do again. For the record, I'm 50yrs old and overweight but hike fairly often.

I have done this trail more times than I can count. It is short and relatively easy. The hike up is a decent incline throughout and while there may be lose rocks, it’s easy to maintain steady grip. Although this trail is short, there are ways to stretch it, or since it’s a round trip you can go through the hike more than once. There is also stair feature on one of the mountain fronts - a great place to execute a little extra workout.

If you want something very accessible and quick to complete, this is the hike for you. A good uphill the whole way. Plenty of loose and uneven terrain to watch out for.

Great for a little XC run, short enough for you to decide if you want to go around 2 or 3 times, just watch out for the small loose rocks.

Easy and fun hike that you can take your kids on. Go after 5pm so the sun is more forgiving.

There's no flag up here as seen in pics. Better off going across the street to thunderbird conservation for a better view and flag up top!

I wouldn’t go out of your way to do this one, but if you live in the area it’s a nice, quick hike. Heavily trafficked like every hike in AZ.
