beautiful!

Other than the length of this trail, it's pretty simple. Just bring lots of water and not be hung over as hell like me and my friends were.

Amazing trail! We ended up doing a 9.6 mile hike. Beautiful views. So peaceful. We went on a Thursday and saw maybe 10 people over the span of several hours. Great place, planning to go back and camp sometime.

Absolutely beautiful loop. Dense trees, many birds and wildflowers. The pond at the halfway point is nice. Some inclines, mild-moderate overall. Great views of the San Francisco Peaks and the surrounding area. Many mountain bikers on the trail. I recommend knowing where you are going beforehand because this loop intersects with many other trails and we ran into a number of people who were lost and didn't know which trail they were on.

Started the hike at the marked little Elden trail head and hiked to Schultz Tank. Hiked up to the parking area and back down to the Little Elden trail head. Along the way there and back seen many wild flowers, small animals, Elk, one snake that crossed my path and lizards. I enjoyed the views. This was a very good hike.

I just hiked here on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017. The trail is back open after the flood, though a bit worse for the wear. There are several logjams in the trail, so be prepared for a little extra effort. Still a very easy hike. My two kids were able to make it to the top with no problems (ages 5 and 4).

Make sure to bring shoes that you can get wet--you need to cross the river to complete this hike. It's well worth it though for the awesome swimming hole at the end of the trail! This is definitely one of my favorite Arizona hikes.

Also, in the summer months, pack TONS of water. This hike can get hot. I usually plan on about 64 oz per person to be safe.

Finally, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pack out your trash. It breaks my heart to see beer cans, etc. marring the beautiful scenery.
