Phoenix, Arizona Map

Good workout for a short hike. Very nice 360 views at the top. Really an out and back trail as the loop is very short. Appropriate footwear goes a long way here.

Pretty view from the top and definitely rewarding. This is the stairclimber from hell and my legs were shaking for an hour or so after. Good cardio workout. It is just a little too busy for my liking. There is a lot of loose rock and areas to fumble and having people on top of you going down and up makes the trek a little irritating to say the least. The parking lot was full by 6:30 am, well all 5 or so of them. We parked all the way down in the neighborhood and walked up about 3/4 mile or so, but that was almost a year ago. I saw comments saying they give tickets now. So, I guess get there when it is still dark for a spot.

Not easy at all, there is a lot of broken glass along with rock climbing and loose rocks. Would not recommend dogs or children on this hike. Hard to follow because there is no trail marks on the trail.
