Great hike! Beautiful views. Left at 5am, at the peak by 7am. Saw plenty of wildlife.

This trail has a steady climb with nice views of the Superstitions on your way up, and then nice views back down towards the park and out towards Four Peaks when you're near the top of the loop. We had our 4 year old and the climb was a bit of a struggle for her but she gutted it out. The trail is very easy to find and well maintained.

Did this Easter Sunday for the first time. This is a Must Hike if you want to really get into the Supes and see spectacular views. The sight of Weavers as you hit the saddle is breathtaking. Definitely do the extra scramble to the Lone Pine and hang out for a bit and enjoy the view. If you start early in the morning you can have some shade for the first bit of the hike, the rest can be toasty even in Spring so definitely rest and hydrate on the way up, will be some good pockets of shade or outcroppings of rock you can rest under. I would not rate this hard unless you aren't used to desert hiking. I would rate it moderate as there isn't much skill required other than watching where you step and pacing yourself on hotter days.

I was sore for two weeks after this one, but it is by far my favorite hike in the Phoenix area. The last mile is an absolute killer!

Hike when the weather is cool, bring water.

I recorded just the hike up. It was my first time hiking this trail so I took my time and many breaks which really helped. I was still dead tired when I made it down. I thought I brought more than enough water, I nearly ran out when it started getting hotter. *Make sure you bring more than you plan.

Great, beutifull but you need to know the trail, be in shape, start early morning. If you dont know the trail, start early. Download d trail map. IT was a challenge for me but worthy.

EGAD! Did this trail on July 4th and it was tough. Took the wrong path up. The hike was the toughest I've ever done in terms of trail conditions. Very rocky and lots of climbing, etc... Hope to do this again on a cooler day.

Very difficult trail to the top. Bring lots and lots of water and expected a whole day of hiking to get to the top.

Weather couldn't have been more perfect for this time of year! Bring your your water, I went through at least 4L. Trail was pretty straightforward. stay left and use alltrails map....Look for cairns and blue/white paint on rocks. Nice little challenge the last 3/4 from the top! Amazing views (although forest fires clouded some of it)!

I've done this hike many times and it never disappoints. The view from the top is worth all of the effort it takes to get up there
