Great trail- a lot of ducks and birds and plenty of benches to sit on and relax.

We loved the hike but got lost about halfway through because of the split in the trail that lacked signage. go right, left extends the hike a couple of miles. My frustration is that this was the only spot trails merged that was unmarked.

Beautiful trail with an incredible view at the top! It took us almost 2 hours up and back only on the Cathedral Rock trail...but we were going slowly. 4 parking spaces left at 7:15 today. I agree with the moderate rating. Great hike!!

Not a fan of this one....exposed, buggy, and if you are scared of heights this might not be for you.

Well. This is not 5.4 miles....if you’re starting at the parking lot it 7.4 miles. I used 2 methods of tracking and Even the trailhead mileage signs are not correct. Took us about 5 hours at a moderate pace. If you’re up for the challenge....bring a lot of water.

Good trail for a morning hike. Enough steep parts to keep it challenging. Only knock is the stretches of loose rock that make gripping the trail hard, especially if you’re running. But overall a good loop for all types.

Very steep, and near the top is more like a climb than a hike. I recommend going early in the morning

Hiked this trail with my teenage grandson on a early June morning. The views from the top are incredible. Good workout hiking up to the top. Easy to get turned around on the trails at the bottom of the crater.

This trail was awesome, my girlfriend and I came with our dog and she was not a fan. Probably the time of the year that we went... it was a little too hot for this. But overall it had great views and we loved it! We even got to see the creek on templeton and soak in it which was nice.

love this trail! does anyone know if camping is allowed?

6/1 - I started at 6:30am and I didn't see a Mt Bike on the whole loop. I guess starting early on a weekday is the way to go! Although I hiked the exact same route as the Map, the Loop totaled 7.9 miles for me. I used RouteScout to track it.

Nice scenic drive through beautiful high desert

Beautiful, varied scenery!! The first 2 miles is a good cardiac climb. Very easy to stay on trail, lots of cairns, all the way to the lake... after that it gets pretty dicey! Followed the recorded trail up and over the ridge, steep and pine needles are very slippery. Went down to the other side of the lake.. gorgeous! Came back mostly along the water edge, was easier but still had to traverse the ridge. Would recommend getting to the first part of the lake, hang left to cross the water, then stay to the right along the water and go as far as the sandstone rocks at the water... hang out, have lunch and head back. The other side of the lake is pretty but not worth that ridge up and down!

Was NOT impressed, trails in Prescott much nicer. Very difficult to walk on, trail is all sand like. Not very scenic, poorly marked. Found much nicer trails at snowbowl.

Nice short trail. Lots of shade.

I’ll never go to Water wheel falls again after finding this gem! The parking lot for Water Wheel was PACKED and the trailhead for this is only a mile down the road with nobody there. Easy walk down to the water, with a lot of places to lay down and swim in the swimming holes. I was somehow completely alone there on a Sunday with the exception of one other family walking through. Spent a few hours here with my toes in the water and cooling off!
