Tony S. on Cholla Trail
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.
Fahad K. on Cholla Trail
It was a bit tough for someone who is just getting into hiking, but an awesome hiking experience nonetheless.
