This trail was pretty good. Very easy walking. It was only 4 miles from where we were staying and it had a waterfall so we went. The waterfall was pretty but not accessible for the dogs nor was it large enough to cool off in. You probably wouldn't want to anyways because it looked like the water didn't really run very far down the way and was pretty stagnant. The waterfall is hidden. Once you see the informational marker ' A track in time' it's just barely past that sign and to the left. Stop and listen for water.

This was a super easy hike. not too pretty until you're about half a mile in. The waterfall is prerty, but you have to veer off the path a little to see it.

I took my family with and found the hike easy and enjoyable. I have only rated this hike with 3 stars because the trail was only marked well for about 1 and a quarter mile. We found ourselves backtracking often. Either way, the kids loved it...

Really easy and short hike to the waterfall! I was with three little kids and one baby strapped to my chest and we were in and out in 40 minutes. Beautiful hidden gem in flagstaff! We went around 530 this afternoon. No steep spots and very easy to get to! The waterfall is down in a canyon so watch kids. Also. When you get to the spot where the trail can go left or right about 1/3 mile in, go right. The waterfall is at the end of the mountain and on the left. You'll see a sign that says much about lumberjacks and building a railroad... it's right past the sign to the left of the trail. You have to walk off the trail a bit.

We got lost and never found the waterfall. Trails are not marked very well. We enjoyed the walk. And will be back to explore the other trails.

Dude. A heads up that the trail closes at 3:00 would be helpful

Amazing! Great views of cliff dwellings and lots of cool desert fauna. You learn a lot about the Sinagua and their way of life. There are lots of stairs to climb but plenty of spots to pause and take breaks. Definitely worth the time.

We started this hike via the Marshall Gulch Trail #3 which is indicated on this site as the "Major access to this area". It is not; however, where this loop starts. Starting at Marshall Gulch Trail #3 adds over 5 miles (round trip) to the hike. We recorded 12.6 miles. Highly recommend expanding this map (or getting another detailed map) to note the miles to hike to get to this loop. Note that "Wilderness of Rocks Trail #44" is not a loop. It is just a piece of this "Wilderness of Rocks" loop trail. Otherwise beautiful area with great views! We would rate as moderately difficult as there are many ascents and descents throughout the hike and several areas where the creek crossing can cause you to lose the trail . If hiking in the summer months, take lots of water - it may be cooler but the sun is intense.

Amazing, beautiful and perfect hike for those 100 degree days in the valleys! Map was spot on but distance was off at least according to my fit bit surge which has GPS built in. I got 9.2 miles instead of the 7.8 listed. But no matter it was a great and challenging hike with perfect weather conditions! Please remember to pay the 5 dollars for the parking the do ticket but more importantly the money goes to the National Parks. Have fun and bring plenty of water and snacks!

Did this last summer, toured the visitor center and then walked across dam. Worth the stop and nice diversion enroute between trails.
