Lots of horny toads and a nice view

Fun trail, but it elevates fast. Bring water and a lot of it. People get helicoptered off way to much because they do not bring water. Short but hard trail.

Nice trail not to hard, but bring a lot of water during the summer.

Super fun and a decent incline to very cool views at the top and a nice desert trail out

We woke up around 5 to do this trail. The hike to the peak was PACKED. But the loop around like a desert (pun intended). Take water, beware of jagged rocks, and loose gravel! Overall was good hike and a great sweat fest!

Started to rain had to head back down halfway.

Took our pup on this trail for his first birthday. Lots of pretty rocks and wildflowers. It was pretty trafficked because the trail is mostly flat. If you’re looking for a good workout, I wouldn’t recommend unless you plan on jogging or running. I felt myself wishing it had a bit more difficulty but it was still fun to get out and enjoy the weather.

This is a great trail for someone who is not a hiker all the time. We did this trail based off of recommendation a few months ago and it was my first time to South Mountain. Has great views of the city but very heavily trafficked so he prepared for that. Especially on the Pima wash side. Still a very do-able trail and always enjoyable!

one of my favorite place to hike.

Loop not good for MTN bike riding

Went for a nice evening hike. Like 110*F. Steady incline all the way up, rocky stairs. Well marked trail. Was relatively busy despite the late hour. Bring enough water and be prepared to sweat. Amazing 360* views of the city and surrounding area. Beautiful landscape.

It’s okay. Nice for a hot day if you don’t want anything too hard. Poorly marked so use the app to stay on trail. Sketchy underground tunnel to get to other loop. Bring flashlight.

Rather dull end to the hike. 3/4 through I realized the great peak to my left and clearly marked was not the end to this trail.

Fun and great views of downtown. Like always, an early start is best and will give you lots of shade here. Even though the “lookout” is closed for renovations, you can go all the way to the top and still enjoy, so don’t let it deter you from taking this beautiful, moderate hike.

Solo pre-work hike/jog. Lots of foot traffic. Parking lot was full. Pretty & sunny dusty desert view.
