We just finished a portion of the trail - it was really great with spectacular views! Definitely some deep rutted and moderate+ climbs and overall fun! Did not do the entire loop. Went to point 6 and turned around.

Went hiking on this trail with the whole and it was very enjoyable. Not much elevation gain so it is great for all hiking skill ranges. Lots of wildlife for my biologist daughter to see.

Great trail and very quiet. Agree that the rock scrambles can make it tough in spots. Beautiful views of the river at the end.

We parked by the humane society and did an entire circle. Total 7 miles. Was not easy - should be rated hard due to all of the rock climbing. Not an easy hike at all. A lot of difficult up and down rocks. Breath taking views - wonderful area just be prepared- lots of water to drink. Definitely rated incorrectly in All Trails.

This place is absolutely beautiful! It made the hike that much more enjoyable to look around and stop and see you are surrounded by such beauty!

Saw so many wonderful birds from dozens of hummingbirds to the precious little owl in the ladies's restroom (complete with directions to 'Do Not Disturb') to egrets and 2 stately pelicans who should sign up for synchronized swimming and diving at the Olympics! We tried to hustle a little to do the exercise thing, but there were SO many delightful distractions! Only complaint....no maps or bird ID charts in the box, so we wandered a bit.

They look great from the road, fun indentures to climb in, but the trails aren't very challenging, unless you create your own up the mountains, but the entire park seems to be littered with broken glass. I don't understand what is going on there, never seen anyplace in Metro-Phoenix that looked this way since moving here? A great easy trail for folks looking to just take a stroll or ride their bike or run around. Also a lot of bees towards the top of the mountains in various crevasses.

Great topography!

Hiked to flowing river rd from bridge. Very pretty but trail not maintained, which kinda made it more fun. Definitely not easy hike due to footing and lack of trail maintenance but can’t complain-I’m sure that whole canyon is a rushing river after monsoons and big rains-washing away any trail anyways. Great photo ops, babbling creek and rock climbing. Literally right off the highway- so easy access. Graffiti is limited to bridge-look to the west for giant cave-great for fire pit/camping and chill. Dogs loved it off the leash!

Breathtaking views. Moderate workout but worth going.

Not well maintained. Very little “nature”. It’s a walk in the Desert. The water pics are not on the main trail.

This was an awesome hike! We extended it out Friday-Saturday!
The trail is easy to find and pretty fun to hike!

The creek was flowing well and was super gorgeous!

I like this trail. Some ups and downs on the rocks, but nice views of Watson Lake.

Pleasant urban hike on paved and gravel walkways. Very easy (and popular) with lots of options to choose your own loop.

Easy hike, even for my 7year-old!! We saw wild donkeys and the views of the lake are beautiful!

Last Sunday, I attempted to do the Elliot Ramada and Double Butte Loop as described in the book "Take A Hike: Phoenix". The trail was supposed to be marked with a number 5 but I didn't see one anywhere but on the mapboard. I would have had a hard time anyway since when I walked over from the zoo, I didn't see any indication which ramada was the Elliot ramada. It was fortunately not too hot yet so it was a good day for wandering around and, of course, the Hole in the Rock was beautiful, but it would have been a better.experience with more markings or some which were easier to find and follow.

I have to say that everyone in my Hiking club, Arizona Baby Boomers Hiking and Adventures , found this hike to be HARD! We parked near the Yavapai Humane Society - went in through the marsh area. Noticed how dry everything was. Went up and finally got to the point where we needed to climb the rocks - and we climbed and climbed for 6.5 miles - Arrived at the dam totally exhausted to find water flowing from dam, but still very dry in area. Then more climbing on rocks!! Our oldest hiker is in her 70’s and hiked this 2x a year - still tough even for our 50 year old hikers. ALL TRAILS incorrectly rates this trail. It is HARD - we all enjoyed the 7 miles - MUST HAVE GOOD ANKLE SUPPORT AND LOTS OF WATER. Rock formations - keep a look out for goddess sitting on ledge overlooking about 3/4 - excellent, challenging, and not for sissy’s !

Great for a gentle walk and viewing birds. too bad sooo many dog owners do NOT pick up. sidewalks trails and beside littered with dog poop. site is smelly and you will bring that home to your car on your shoes!
