this was a beautiful trail. I agree the first 0.6 miles is challenging with a lot of loose small scrambles, but then you get to a grassland area and it is beautiful. there was running water in some areas (I did this in early January), and it is exposed so it's a great hike to do in the winter. it ends at the Gordon hirabayashi campground with a connector to the AZT. Its overall a pretty short trail, so if you still have energy, I recommend going west on the AZT towards bear creek, there are some amazing views over that way too.

We took the Pina Canyon Trail to Mount Kimball (don’t stop at the Mt. Kimball sign, it’s another 0.2 miles to the boulder and amazing views), and returned via the Finger Rock Trail to the trailhead off Craycroft. Beautiful ever-changing scenery; fairly steep toward the top of both trails; a real knee-jarring return. Able to see Finger Rock from front and back. Recorded 11.6 miles and 7 hours, including a leisurely lunch.

Easy trail, nothing overly exciting to see.

1/17/19 Are very beautiful and engaging hike with well maintained trails.
Parking- as you drive in on the left is some parking for a dozen cars, continue straight past the stables and large parking area on right.
Fee- $3 per person. This is a conservation park and is very well marked and maintained.
This hike had a little of everything...sun, shade, benches to rest, great views, creek crossings (2x4 bolted together for makeshift path) a little incline effort, a mine, hieroglyphics, 30+ feet tall cactus. This is great hiking trail to take guests from out of town. Enjoyed every bit of it.

Easy hike. Hiked with parents and God-parents 10-15 years ago. Need to go back!!

Beautiful view from the near end of the trail. The last .5 miles is difficult to find and we didn’t go to the suggested end because it was so covered with foliage. Overall, beautiful trail.

We pass by the sign for this hike on our way to Pine and finally decided to give it a try.Completed it yesterday. Lots of water making for nice falls. I am placing this hike right up there with one of my favorites. Nice switchbacks at a comfortable grade.

Love this trail! I’ve done it several times at different times of the year and it’s well worth it. Beautiful views 10/10 recommend.

Amazing trail for those more active and fit. If you’re scared of heights, this will thrill you toward the end. It starts off really easy and then out of no where you’re climbing huge steps to the top that are steep.. also, get there early.. we arrived at 7:10 and when we came back down a little after 9am it gets extremely busy, people waiting around for others to leave and people parking all the way down to the main entrance on the Main Street. Definitely a good work out for arms, legs, and good cardio. Great hike and views! Well worth the body aches

Great hike. I prefer to do the loop. If you take the wash to the river it’s not super difficult to locate the hot springs. Buts not clearly marked either. You’ll need to go up and over going “downriver”. You can not follow the bank. Bring lots of water and a snack. Takes me about 4 hours. I always try and pick up at least one piece trash that’s sure to be laying around.

Amazing Hardest Hike Ever! I’m Over Whelmed with accomplishing this hike....Best Ever! Gloves are a MUST as you’ll be crab crawling down steep rocky terrain. It is definitely a Hard Hike, Epic Summit with amazing views! GTAH,AZ 1-20-19 I kicked Ass on Flatiron !!!! 7.00 entrance fee, clean bathrooms on site :). Plenty of parking. Took me 6 hours total

If you have a 4x4 high clearance car & are able to make it to the trailhead, then the hike is only maybe a mile round trip. There were about 4 other grps there when we went. One of the grps were playing some music and had blankets all in the cave so we couldn’t even go in.

This is one of my favorite hikes (especially both Carr and Miller peaks during the same hike). I’m amazed at how few people have tried this hike! Highly recommended. Go out and see the world around you from these wonderful vistas!

Hiking is a misnomer for this trail as rock climbing is pretty much the theme for a long stretch of the trail. The trail started out deceptively easy and lulled you thinking it's not so difficult then after an hour into it you are suddenly facing a terrian in its most primitive form with very steep incline. bring enough water and two snacks. gloves are highly recommended

first time on this hike and it was very fulfilling. a group of boy scouts went up around the same time and managed very well. we arrived at 6:30, park opens at 6. bring plenty of water, a flashlight for early morning, small snacks, and gloves for rock climbing. the trails are marked very lightly with either blue or white. plenty of shade for early risers. definitely going back!

This is a really nice trail, but as has been said, it's not moderate, it's quite easy. Very well marked, which is super nice. Lots of saguaro. It's rocky though, and lots of small loose rocks. It is only one of a few areas in Tucson where lots of people mountain bike, and we went on a Sunday, and there were a LOT of mountain bikers. Now, I also MTB, but I would never ride such a narrow trail on the weekend. Not one biker yielded the right of way, because there's virtually no way to do so. But it was a nice hike with friends, nice breeze, no road noise, no shade. We would have probably given it a 5 had it not been for the sheer number of bikers. Don't think I'll do this again hiking.

Good hike on a snowy day with scenic views.

It’s worth going to the lookout towards Sedona. Breathtaking!
