Beautiful, but the trail is really over grown. Wear pants.

Great trail. It was full of gorgeous views and had diverse plants and wildlife. This trail was easy on some parts but personally I would rate it between hard and moderate if that was possible, it is a long trail and I checked my health app afterwards and it said that during the trail by the end I had climbed 91 floors. However, the end of the day this trail was one of my favorites and was worth it by far. I would recommend bringing insect repellent because the trail does have a lot of flies towards the beginning. Also this trail has lots of shaded area and places to stop and rest which was nice.

Great trail to hike. Definitely agree with others to start at Peralta and end at First Water. There were a lot of flying insects, so bring your bug spray this time of year (May). Clear markings make this easy to follow. I saw no snakes and lots of flowers were still blooming. Take plenty of water. I drank 4 liters (temp was 81 when I left early am and 98 when I got to first water 1pm).

Would not recommend cut across trail, especially alone.Very scrambled and not well marked. Although, beautiful views and wonderful area.

Great trail, the scramble between bluff springs & Peralta was awesome and very cool. Once you drop down and go up Peralta it’s a slow long vertical that is a great cardio. Leave early to avoid heat of day! Great cardio hike with awesome views and a scramble

Did this hike yesterday with my dad after over 10 hours (6:45am-5pm), and it is actually 13.4 miles exactly from start to finish. The app says it’s closed but that is not the case (bathrooms are locked due to Covid19 restrictions). We took over 5 liters of water together in camelbaks and barely made it without running out. Sunscreen/sunblock is super important as I burned bad even after applying SPF15 several times. Also there were nonstop little flies the whole way getting right in our faces, so bug spray would have been a huge relief. Be prepared for thistles, but otherwise the trail is pretty clear. There’s also several camping spots we saw throughout (atleast 5). Doing the entire loop in this heat is difficult and not for the faint of heart, but it is satisfying to tackle it. I’m glad I got this experience and will definitely be needing a day or two of R&R!

Beautiful hike. Takes about 1.5 hours up and same down. Casual hike besides length. Amazing photo opportunities. Bathroom at base. Plan several extra hours. Base is 30 minutes east of 202 of the 60. Peralta rd and another 15 from there on dirt roads. Trail marked well. At the top there is a large rock formation you need to go around to left to get to the view you are really looking for of Weavers Needle.

Great hike, beautiful views of Weavers needle!
