Hiked down Cholla Trail after going up Echo Canyon Trail. One of the advantages of taking an Uber to the trail. It was steep at the top and not always easy to follow the trail. Look for the blue paint dots.

This trail is not for the faint of heart. If you like rugged trails and having to scramble, then this trail is for you. If you're looking for an easy stroll, then look elsewhere. Dogs are not allowed on the trail, FYI.

Well marked and well maintained. Go early in the morning or in the evening and bring plenty of water. There are not a lot of spots to stop and get some shade, depending on the time of day.

Nothing special. Only good thing about it is connecting trails. Still good climb

Had a great hike this morning saw several quail, at least 2 kinds of lizards, ground squirrels, and a bunny! Loved the petroglyphs and the old stone buildings! Walk the wash first thing in the morning for best wildlife viewing

Just what I needed. All way around and up to the summit and then back down the other side.

It was a bit tough for someone who is just getting into hiking, but an awesome hiking experience nonetheless.

Moderate to easy, certainly not difficult
