Not really that hard, but some beautiful scenery, vistas and rock formations. Really gives one a true appreciation of the beauty of the desert.

Great hike, quite an uphill climb, but the views at the top are amazing. Can’t believe they have picnic tables up there. Had the perfect day weather wise, light cloud cover, around 80. The trail was slightly washed out in one part on the way down, and my phone died, so no gps, which ended up in my adding Berns Trail to the loop. Ended up doing over 10 miles. Only met 3 people on the entire hike.

I'm not sure why there are no reviews of this trail but, as a novice-to-intermediate hiker, I found it challenging, but very rewarding. After the initial one-mile ascent, the trail plateaus between the mountains for some scenic and peaceful hiking. The uphill to Murray Hill is quite doable and those picnic benches are a welcome sight.
