I had a blast driving along the dirt road to this small, quaint spot. I climbed up to the small cavern and then down into the trench below the bridge. The only problem is... the trail is flooded out (at least what they App showed me was the trail). Because there was no trail I just climbed around and snapped some pictures. It’s amazing how small you can feel staring up towards the sky at the mountain tops. I wouldn’t recommend this for an actual hike but maybe a spot to check out and have lunch.

Soldier Pass to Brins Mesa is a 'must-see' hike. The trail is well maintained and makes for a fairly easy walk. There is a long, gradual ascent to the mesa, although a few uphill spots rate as moderate. The views throughout the hike and from the crowning mesa are awe inspiring, transcendant, unforgettable. The trailhead parking is practically non-existent, so be prepared to park far away and walk some distance to reach the trail. This is a minor aggravation, but well worth the glorious views. Even on a weekend, the trail did not seem crowded. I will be back again and again for this fantastic hike.

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

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

Quick, easy hike. Great for kids, or for people wanting to take it easy.

Great trail! Not a hard hike, but great views and good trails!

One of my absolute favorite hikes in Arizona. This hike is a go to year round and especially nice in the warm weather when you’re able to enjoy the water.

This is a beautiful easy to moderate trail depending on your activity level. The chiricahuas are a special place and the loop is like nothing I’ve seen in Arizona. The rock formations are amazing. Take your time and enjoy this one.

go up to the top , then come back down to the half way point. then run the back side all the way around to the front parking lot.

only did it 11 times in a row , in 13 hrs .

Great trail and easy trail. The Hieroglyphics are pretty cool to see. There wasn’t that much water when i was there but after a good rain it would awesome to see. 90% of the trail was even, and easy to walk on. Gradual incline but nothing crazy. Kids can easily do the trail. Can’t wait to go back!

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

I started out today on my way from Piestewa Peak Park to Tatum Drive along the L.V. Yates (8), but not having done that in quite a while, I was a little bit unsure of how to go, so when I came to the Ruth Hamilton (8B), I turned off and headed back to the park. I had not even gone quite as far as I thought, but gave up and turned back. That's kind of the tail end of the 8B anyway, and involves a bit of a climb up to the peak. From there it travels down to the park, along a narrow trail with tricky footing. The 8B is quite a fun trail.

Great Hike! Almost no shade on the trail though, so the sun can be brutal

Beautiful hike with a well maintained and marked trail. Loved this hike!

We did this today, but via National Trail at Buena Vista Lot, and it was great. Made it to Fat Man’s pass and turned around.

This was the perfect trail for our group to have a great experience in the Grand Canyon. Started at 10 am, took 2:50 out and 2:50 back, plus lunch at Plateau Point. Weather was cool and cloudy on the way back up. Coming back up is no joke, but we found a good pace and it went by quickly. The stations every 1.5 miles broke up the hike very well. Definitely an enjoyable day in the canyon!

The hike is steep in certain parts, especially towards the top. It's pretty gravelly/rocky; wear hiking boots if you have them and it will help on the way down. The cave had an awesome view!

Great hike , fantastic views, bring water, sunscreen, map, portable phone charger etc. FYI there is no permit needed to park, hike or camp in the superstition wilderness, however you cannot camp in the parking lots. This hike is in the superstition wilderness and starts at peralta trailhead. You can leave your vehicles overnight in the parking lot. The superstition wilderness is part of the Tonto National Forest. The Tonto National forest starts at the sign about a third of a mile from the trailhead. That first 6.5 (approx) miles of dirt road is state land and you are supposed to have a permit to camp park etc on that land. Other rules for the wilderness are posted at the trailhead. During the hiking season, normally October to April there are volunteers at the trailhead to answer questions; usually until noon. Peralta trailhead parking lot fills up by 9am on weekends, but there is overflow parking about a quarter mile down the road.

Fun hike! Get there early if going on the weekend because it gets busy.

Great trail, saw 3 rattlesnakes

What a great way to spend my morning! The hike part was very nice. The last part before you make it to the cave is a little challenging but very do able. If ever need a morning to see this beautiful desert we live in ... the view from the cave was way worth the hike! Pack snacks and make sure to have water.

Great hike. The hieroglyphs were incredible

Went in the early morning, around 7 am, it was still nice and cool throughout the whole hike. It was pretty rocky but manageable. Had a beautiful view of the valley and was lucky enough to watch a hot air balloon float by!

nice easy trail when you o my have a small amount of time for a quick hike.

The rocks are a bit too loose, too big, and too irregularly shaped for my liking. The trail is a bit confusing and isn’t marked and branches off in many directions a few times. I passed a few families that seemed familiar with the trail and enjoyed it. This was my first time and probably my last. No thanks.

Love this trail! It is well maintained and easy to follow.

A must-do. It’s not really a hike and it’s great for children. It’s a Phoenix landmark.

It’s a high trafficked Trail. I took my dog, and she loved it. It’s great for families, as well. VERY HARD TO FIND PARKING. You have to have good luck from the parking Gods to get in that tiny lot.
