I actually start this near Saddle Rock (off Flagstaff), go up Ampitheatre and then back down saddle rock. Doing it that way knocks off about 3/4 mile but makes it a great short but strenuous hike - I clocked about 1200 feet elevation gain- and a nice weekday workout. It is mostly a shady hike making it a good one even for hot summer days. Some water most of the year as well for dogs on the Saddle Rock side.
