Great loop - not too hard and beautiful views from the top!

This is a good hike. The trail is a bit washed out and there are lots of exposed roots and rocks. It’s not terribly steep (I think Elden is harder). At the saddle, the wind really picks up. Make sure you dress appropriately. The summit gives you tons of great views. It was about 10 degrees at the top with about 35-40 mph winds. It was intense. But there is something to be said about being on top of Arizona. There were a ton of people (like in 100’s, not exaggerating) on the way down which is frustrating. Lots of dogs off leash (which is frustrating given the leash law and posted signs). Overall, a good spot and I really enjoyed it.

It's an out-and-back on a very pretty segment of the Arizona trail (not much for vistas, but I had the trail to myself on a very pretty Friday afternoon in late summer, and the rock formations and partial meadows along the way are idyllic).

Love the forest part of the trail. The loop through neighborhood- not so much. Next time I'll do forest and turn back around. It's really pretty in the forest.

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.
