Beautiful view of the valley! Lots of steps. Very crowded even in summer, would recommend getting there as early as possible.

Rocky in parts, nice uphill challenge. Heard a baby rattler so be careful if hiking in summer.

Hot summer trek... but worth it. After the peak the solace of the loop is perfect along with the cool breeze on the back side. Be prepared for no shade!

A lot of stairs. Not a lot of shade. Otherwise a good trail

It's a great workout but hard to find parking as so many people come here. Pretty much climbing up rocky steps most of the way.

HikingGreat!

A nice steep hike, short but strenuous. I would say Camelback is tougher as there are no boulder climbs here, but it’s still challenging. Great views from the peak and some nice viewpoints on your way up.

Rock climbing

Arrived at 5:30 AM. Already way too crowded. I had to park on a residential street and only got to meet with half of my group. The rest started without us. It was way too heavily trafficked. This is a work out trail for the vast many and they do it every day. By the time we hiked out there were not as many people on the trail and it was 100° when we finished at 8:30am.

Summit trail 300 was crowded as always but the dawn is gorgeous and the view from the top can’t be beat. I took the 302 Freedom trail the long way back and the desert solitude was amazing. Definitely worth a repeat. Bring lots of water and sunscreen!

HikingGreat!Rocky

One of my fave spot to hike. Kinda crowded but the hikers are very friendly. Road is rocky, some steep hike which can be challenging at some. It is a must to finish the trail & go in top. The view is all worth it!

I saw many ppl without water. Gave some water to a “newbie” they called themselves. Always bring water especially in hot summer

First to Review

Great solo hike. Extremely difficult, but doable. =) WATER - Carry 4 liters. (2 per vertical mile, 1 per 3 miles flat). Prehydrate & bring electrolytes too. HEAT - Don't hike this above 90 degrees. I was expecting 95, and ended up finishing the last mile in 106 degrees. Ultra miserable on that last mile. Very exposed to the sun the entire loop.

Love this hike. Discovered in the early 80s while attending ASU. Still come back from Chicago to enjoy this great cardio climb and beautiful sunrise at the top!

Hiking

Nice views of scrabbly, interesting mountains. Nothing special, but good moderate hike for the morning. A ton of people were in the area for the summit hike, and fewer for the loop freedom trail. Parking is limited so you have to arrive when the gate opens at 5:30am to get a spot, or park in the neighborhood streets a short walk away
