Loved it Especially the American flag when you get to the top

Accurately rated. Very accessible. Nice view overlooking Glendale from the summit. Added a black throated sparrow to my bird list.

My son-in-law and I go there almost every Sunday morning. It is pretty easy with just enough rocks, turns and elevation changes to make it fun.

Not much of a hike...but looked like a decent park.

Fun little hike with some great views of the temple

this was my beginners hike. I've done it a few times with my boys and they loved it.

Fun stair-like climb, slow ascend but a lot of rocks to step up.

if you follow the whole loop- coach whip-ridgeline-sunrise-coach whip, it's more like 4 miles. still a good easy/mod hike

Love the flag at the top! Very motivational...

Nice trail for us older folks just starting out

This was an amazing sunset hike to do. It’s fast and easy and you have plenty of time to get to the bottom before dark!

Disappointed by this trail. So many other better trails in Phoenix. It's fine if you're looking for something short, quick and easy and don't care much about seeing desert flora - not too many cacti here compared to other places.

An easy, convenient trail I find myself on a couple times a week.

Good workout! lots of loose rock in places, awesome views all around. it can be kind of crowded at times.

great for a morning hike and perfect to do with family.

This park is so crowded, but well maintained and easy to access if you're in a time crunch. There are rocks and the occasional snake, but I do enjoy completing this hike several times a year.

First hike I ever did and now do it routinely. A bit crowded on weekends.

lots of traffic, easy and well marked

Love the views

Love this trail after work! Nice little night hike! Not too difficult and is a good little cardio session!

Love it! About 25 minutes to the top, can go the switchback route that has more flat spots, or turn right at the fork for a longer more steady incline. Overall, shorter hike with nice views of the lakes below.

Description is accurate; I would add lots of loose rocks to navigate while walking.

Most of it’s too close to civilization for my liking. But The trails over the Ridgetop sent up to the flag on the sunrise summit are fine.

Challenging but not overwhelming. would reccomend highly.

Been hiking this one for years, and it never gets old. The peak view is decent, but it’s the fun terrain of the trail that keeps bringing me back.

Good hike, great views

Enjoyed the Sunrise trail on a mid day hike.
It was a 1.8 mile hike roundtrip and is easy to moderate.
It took us about an hour including stops at the top for photos.

A good moderate trail for various ages.
~ Cons: No restrooms at the base. But there are some at Sunrise (just Southwest).
~ Family: We also saw a family having a post Sunday service meal/picnic at the cabanas. A good reminder of family values and how the space is good for everyone. Not just hikers.
