Loved it

Great hike in preparation for the National Trail Trek next weekend

Great hiking!

Nice trail but it is over before you get started. Nice view of the city looking down. Will probably focus on more challenging trails going forward.

Great hike for amazing challenge and views. Both trails offer unique terrain, so highly recommend doing both. I went up Echo and down Cholla; probably the easiest way to go since Echo has so many rocks to scramble up/down. Would love to go back and try to do both trails out and back. Would need LOTS of water and snacks for that; at least 2 liters.

Challenging but easy to navigate. Great views.

Beginning of the trail shares the trail for Piestewa peak so pretty heavy traffic, but a great way to get your heart pumping. From there, it turns off and is much quieter and less challenging as it circles around the base.

Great workout!

Really nice trail for a short and sweet hike within the city. Nice little baby inclines to get the heart pumping but not very challenging all together. Pretty typical desert views—lots of cholla and saguaro. Intersects with the Ruth Hamilton if you want to push a bit further .

Really nice, easy meandering trail. Not well marked, but nice for a wandering noncommittal hike.

The hike itself is really nice and scenic but the trail isn’t marked at all. I kept veering off trail. I would definitely bring your phone to track your location

Beautiful scenery, but this trail is not easy to follow, thankfully I used the gps on this app to follow the trail but still very confusing.

I would rate this hike as more than moderate. It is pretty steep on both ends and the loose rock can be a real ankle twister. The views can’t be beat!

Beautiful view- would be a great view at sunset

Love this trail, always a good sunset and sunrise hike!!

nice hike. took me 3+ hrs to hike the trail.
