Great views and fairly easy climb up. Would recommend going going early in the day or later at night. There is no shade and it was very hot, even starting at 8:30am. LOTS of bugs. But fantastic views for the whole trail. Some fun scrambling at the end by where there should be water if you wanted to for the heck of it. And trail is NOT closed!

Would definitely recommend going earlier or later in the day, and/or earlier in the season when there might actually be running water. We went in May, midday and it was hot and the bugs wouldn’t leave us alone... and there water was very low, stagnant, swampy, and full of bugs. We also did not make it to any visible hieroglyphics. Maybe that is just past the first water hole.

Amazing views! Avoid park fee by parking at next trailhead & if you don’t mind slight detour added to actual trail. Not many hikers at 8a

Nice hike not a lot of bugs this morning.

We hiked part of this today. We started at 6:30. We started the loop counter-clockwise and encountered a bee swarm on the trail close to the 4 mile point and didn’t see a way around it so we turned and hiked back out the way we came. We also saw a couple snakes around 8:30 am. Only one rattlesnake and we were able to wait as it crossed the trail and got far enough off for us to pass. The part we did was pretty easy with nice views.

The trail is not closed, the sign that says it is closed in big letters goes on to say that it is closed to motor vehicles in small letters. There is dispersed camping allowed here so is trashy but it is fine once you get on the actual trail. it's a good short workout with nice views and is dog friendly.

No trail markings. Messy campgrounds with trash & fire remnants. Trailhead (we think it was the trailhead) said the area was closed. Bummer for my kids & me, but the desert is gorgeous right now so we did a hike inside Usury instead.

3-20-20. Beautiful Solo Hike and the water is flowing everywhere!!! Lots of river crossings, at least one foot of water and then some....you will get wet! Sign the register and Enjoy :)

Well, we had to get rescued vis chopper. First time ever at the supes and we violated the first rule of hiking and went off trail 7 miles in. Ended up going roughly 5-6 miles of descending, ascending, sliding and climbing through just completely rugged area. Extremely loose rocks and boulders, class 3 and 4 rock, a definite class 5 area going down. extreme bushwhacking, boulder jumping, just absolute stupidity. Also somebody had left cairns in the off trail area but there was no real trail down except extreme bushwhacking and boulder jumping and class 3 climbing and alternatively a class 3-4, and probably 5 again slide and climb down. Town was just a few miles away, but after doing so much of the Ridgeline and then the craziness offtrail already, it was too much. Excluding many many near death moments, excellent trail, Solidly difficult, amazing views of the four peaks and everything around like Mt Lemnon. trail pretty visible and straight forward, and marked by many cairns. very lush and green in the siphon draw valley area. The Ridgeline had the last laugh, but after the valuable lesson in route finding offtrail, and time and resource management I think we'll get it when it cools down.

Good workout, lots of gnats. Couple sprays of bug spray would be a good call
