Did only some of this trail yesterday, as we got a late start and didn't have alot of daylight left. According to my MapMyHike, we did 3.56 miles in 2 hrs 7 mins. This was our 3rd hike, and was my favorite so far. We've done part of Jacob's Crosscut, and all of Camelback Cholla. Oh, and I should mention that the "we," is myself, my husband, and our 3 kiddos (7, 9, 12). We're planning on attempting the entire hike today, pending the 10' wall. Really loved what we did of this hike bc of the steady incline and climbing! It was a great workout, but not crazy hard. The kids loved when we got to the climbing parts, of course! I will say though, there was a big bonus to our late start - the sunset was AHHmazing!!! Anyhow, for what we did yesterday of it, it was great! Looking forward to attempting the full hike today, will review again once complete...or not, and will let you know if the wall is doable w kids!
