I would do it again. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. made good time to. out and back just under 2 hours.

Great hike, it was a bit crowded but we went on the weekend! The view at the top is great and very neat to see all the ancient carvings in the rocks!

After 1st km km, a great sidewinder type of trail, fairly rugged, that circles three or four peaks and walks you along a few ridges. Nice views 360.

Ran this trail on Presidents Day. Was nice out and overcast and just a few sprinkles. The trail setting on the app was quite accurate once you hit past the old abandoned house and traveled north. Overall a fun trail with some challenges once you drop into the river bottom.

Outstanding views well worth the climb!

Always save an offline AllTrails map! It is very easy to miss the trail down from the top, especially if you plan to take in the many off trail views available. The cairns are hard to see in certain terrain and there is no cellular service.

Final advice - Allow six hours for the trip, start your hike at 9 AM to get the best sun for photography, and bring binoculars.

Did this back in July 2017. Truly scenic and beautiful! Brutal stretch above treeline with wicked winds and some snow! Trail was straightforward. Awesome to be able to see Sedona and the Grand Canyon far in the distance from the summit. Lots of parking. Start early! I made it to the summit around 9ish and there were dark clouds everywhere. Passed by alot of people, started storming around 12:30, hopefully no one was caught in it. Bring snacks and proper hydration!

A short easy hike to some fake some real petroglyphs. The waterfall was dry today and the limited water at the top was dirty and had some garbage in it.

Great workout with some elevation. Love the flag at the summit. A lot of loose rock with was a bit challenging but nice trail. Will definitely do again.

Great hike with short time.. more aggressive near the top but you’re in moderate down below.. views are incredible once at the peak.

Good exercise and strenuous near the top. Coming down you’ll want to be sure footed as the rocks are jagged and would be easy to turn ankle..

Great short trail. It may be easy for 20 to 40 year olds , but a little challenging for a 62 year old fart.

Awesome - definitely more crowded than lower Antelope (which if you have to pick I’d do lower right now in the winter since there is not a lot of light).

One of the more scenic hikes I've done in the Phoenix area. Started around noon on a cool Tuesday (temp in upper 50s). The first half of the 'out' portion was crowded, meaning I encountered about a dozen people. The hike across the desert to Burro Cove was worth it, and I only saw three other people on this portion. Returned to the trail head to find wild horses in the parking area.

If you arrive without a pass in hand, you can purchase one at an auto-pay station near the Marina a couple of miles down the road. You don't need to drive 11 miles back to the gas station on Fort McDowell Road as the sign suggests.

Easy hike to cram in while you’re in town to see Antelope Canyon. Tons of tourists but you can still find space to yourself. Don’t get too close to the edge for that perfect shot

Good, quick workout but it just sort of ends unless you go up to the very crowded lookout.

Hiked up Old Baldy came back on the Super Trail. Lot of ice on the North side, snow 2 feet deep toward the summit. Very soft snow on the South side. Have been up there several times before but this was the best. A real adventure. January 2017

We hiked this trail in February 2015 and it was the perfect time to have cool and comfortable temperatures. It was in the 60's when we started on the rim and it was 78 when we got to the bottom. The first day, we hiked to Indian Gardens Campground and spent the night in our tent. It is a good campground and has pit toilets and water. Very quiet. The next morning, we hiked down to Phantom Ranch. We spent approx. 2 hours resting there and bought more food to eat at the snack bar. We hiked back up that same evening to Indian Gardens and spent another night there. I would recommend, after my own experience being very challenging, that you spent a night at the Phantom Ranch campground or the cabins down there BEFORE heading back up to Indian Gardens. Then spend a night at Indian Gardens and hike out. Bring plenty of light weight snack food, dehydrated hiker meals and a pocket rocket for warming up your water and adding to your dehydrated meal for a light weight, quick meal. It was very helpful that you could fill your water down in the canyon at several water stations. Also, it was great that they had lots of drinks and snacks to purchase at the Phantom Ranch snack bar. You can also pre order a full meal at Phantom Ranch before your trip, if that is what you prefer. This trip is a trip I will never forget. Don't attempt this hike without proper preparation and when it is too hot.
