What a cute little hike before the day gets hot! It’s kind of strange hiking through the middle of a neighborhood but the view at the highest point is pretty amazing. I actually ended up doing the trail backwards (ooops) but the trail was wide enough to accommodate. The area is well maintained and easily marked.

Sitting here at 5AM. Gate is not opening?! Does anyone know about when this officially opens? Why is it called the sunrise, so you can sit at the gate and wait for the sun to rise?

Great hike. Got a little to warm, we started too late. There is an awesome overlook about two thirds of the way up to take a quick rest before you summit. Crews were out working on the trail, it is exceptionally maintained. Thanks guys!

Great hike with beautiful views! Would definitely do this trail again!

Very nice hike with beautiful views!

Loved this trail. It is on the easy side of moderate, but this trail is not easy. There is some good elevation changes and some excellent scenery. The lower parts of the trail are pretty easy, but the later parts near the summit are where it because more difficult. Definitely worth checking out.

Great trail. Moderate is perfect description. Summited right before sunset and while it was beautiful we really had to hoof it back down to beat the night setting in. So last mile was pretty dark. Would do again at sunset but descend on one of the western-facing trails.

Great hike!! Cactuses and other plants just starting to bloom! Mostly easy with a few spots that would be considered moderate. Not very many people... beautiful views! Take lots of water as there is no shade.

Amazing view at sunset, not just sunrise. On easier side for a moderate trail, short and sweet with a great payoff at the top!

Did the accent to the summit this morning.at 5:35am. Parking lot does not open till roughly 30 minutes before sunrise, however we were lucky that the overflow lot was not gated when we arrived. The climb was moderately easy with the last .8 miles of steep incline to the summit. The views of the sunrise were breathtaking and would be willing to do it again. Crowds were light and plan on a 45 minute climb at a good steady pace.

It was a total of 8.75 miles. We took the upper tail and the new lower tail back. It was a great loop. Great views of Fountain Hills including the fountain. The new tail is not on any of the maps.

Easy to stay on trail. Can get pretty crowded so I suggest going very early in the morning if you do not like crowds. It says 3.7 but we actually clocked about 4.6 to get all the way to the peak. Great views on the way and at the top

Trail very well marked, essentially impossible to get off the trail.

Nice to find a trail with some nice smooth areas, and a nice easy incline, which makes for a very pleasant hike.

Round-trip, one hour. Spectacular views

Nice trail once you get away from the highway. Definitely take the trail to the left unless you want a pretty hard workout.

Trail was not marked at all.....we are fairly experienced hikers and we got off trail twice and never was able to get back on trail again.....would definitely not recommend this hike. Put some trail markings or signs in.

very cool hike, super windy at top..but beautiful views.

Great quick hike. Took about 45 up and 25 down, ran most of the way. Good in the evening because it's mostly shaded. Good work out in 1.5 hours.

Nice hike. Relatively easy.

Nice steady incline and for sure more challenging after the first viewing point. So rewarding at the summit, amazing views. Didn't make it all the way up the first time, but paced myself and lots of small breaks and got to the top, well worth it!!

Beautiful hike, but much more challenging than i anticipated. Incredible views and very clean.

This is my go to work out loop! I start to the right. Great views. If you have extra time continue on the trail pass the loop sign and the views just get better.

Great trail. Great views all the way and especially from the very top. Rocky trail and moderately steep in places. Saw the Fountain Hills fountain from the top. Only one mountain biker. Where is the wildlife though? Took us 2.5 hours.

Great trail. Short but steep to terrific views.

This park is great but be sure to plan your visit around the hour because that is when the 300 foot fountain. The fountain pumps out 7,000 US Gallons per second out of a 18 inch nozzle. The fountain is truly amazing and I recommend it for all ages. Also the fountain runs from 9am to 9pm so it will go off even at night because they have lights on the fountain.

This hike starts super easy and flat then you get to a straight up hill cement walk. I am an in shape 25 year old and it destroyed my legs! View from the top was nice.

I loved this hike gorgeous views and easy enough to be able to enjoy the scenery

Cuts through a beautiful tract of land on a rolling uphill incline. Great workout, great fun!

Worthy Trail. Ran it with my son.

I loved this moderate trail. Beautiful views, good inclines and a good workout! Make sure ya have good hiking shoes as there is a lot of loose rocks. Nonetheless incredible !

Long gradual climb for the 1st km; just as long and a bit steeper for the second; a lot steeper for the third km, especially the last third of a km or quarter-mile of the spur trail up to the summit. Delightful descent all the way back
