Beautiful hike. Cliff jumping is great! Word to the wise when the trail says cross the river don’t... go to your left and follow the river bed. It will take you to the swimming hole. If you go over the river you’ll continue on Bell Trail with some good elevation climbing into the forest. This spot is great if your training for a big hike or going for distance and want to see more of the canyon! Super Beautiful but be aware it’s dry and literally continues on forever. We went three miles past the river mostly incline.

Great hike! Went today, a Tuesday, and the trail and swimming area was pretty hiker free. I passed one young lady on the way out who was returning and there was another young lady at the swimming area. This made for a nice quiet hike. As you hike out you hear nothing but birds and water running. the swimming hole at the turn around is fantastic. the water was cool and a nice way to relax before returning back out. I personally like a hike with a goal to reach and this one really paid off!

Great trail! Moderate, yet long and hot hike. The Crack was an awesome place to cool off!

A short hike with two trail options, both are gorgeous

Absolutely amazing petroglyphs. It has a solar calendar that the volunteers can tell you about. It’s a short walk for a really cool site.

great trail! tougher than it sounded. gps said we did 9.5 miles roundtrip. we did have to park in the overflow parking but they had a trail to connect to the main trail. the trail is pretty rocky and def drop offs at every turn. once you get to the water it is very beautiful but trash everywhere no one packs out the garbage. shame on them.

Great trail. Tougher than we thought it would be, but we are fairly new to hiking. Bring more water than you think you’ll need! Ran into a few that ran out of water before they even made it to the crack. Loved the swimming hole.

8 of us did this hike Sunday 8-5-18, it was fantastic. Pretty much no shade but it's an easy hike with only a couple moderate spots. The jumping rock is perfect and easy to use and the water is always cold. As many other reviews have stated the hike gets hot, bring lots of water. I brought an empty water gallon and filled it from the river for the hike out, half way back it was getting warm so I drenched myself, best decision.

my wife and I did this hike. It sprinkled rain most of the day except for one point where the clouds cleared and the sun hit the trail and it was hotttt. Overall a fantastic hike and the treasure at the end as well worth the walk. bring your hiking hammock there are some great spots to hang it up near the water hole.

Loved it! I recorded 8mi RT somehow. Didn’t realize this is the hike to “the crack” great cliff jumping at the end! The water feels great!!!
The hike itself I would say is pretty moderate. Has some incline, but nothing strenuous. My dog did it just fine. It was “monsoon” weekend. It drizzled the whole day with humidity in the mid to low 80s-ish. I would definitely do it again!

The hike was nice. I would rate 3.5 stars. We began at 845am and there was one other car in the lot. The weather was overcast and mid-80s. The clouds were critical as everyone in this thread is right - very little shade and if the sun is out, it'll be beating down on you. The first half of the hike is not that great, pretty simple flat trail. The second half gets much better with some elevation change and beautiful views. The swimming hole around the 3.5-mile mark was also excellent and refreshing. We had the place to ourselves. On our trek back out we passed many people and the lot was nearly full. Get there early on a weekday (if possible) to beat the crowds.

We really enjoyed this hike although it turned out to be 15.5 miles round trip to reach the crack. Most of the hike is flat and out in the hot sun. You follow the creek the entire time and only reach it at the end. Beautiful hike, I don’t think we will repeat it anytime soon.

This was a moderately hard trail for us, mainly due to the distance and the heat! Gorgeous views, and the water was amazing! Cold but it feels super refreshing after the 3.5 mile trek. My husband and I both brought a camel pack and an additional hydro flask so we had enough water for us and our dog... warming if you are bringing a dog. It’s pretty hot for them. There is an area where the trail is black... if burned our dogs feet and we had to carry her on the way back. She has been on several hikes before, and has tough feet... so beware of that part. The rest of the trail isn’t too hot on the ground but that crumbled black rock was no good!

Decent hike, great swimming hole! Not bad if you hike regularly but we saw a few people that had issues with the heat, water, and didn’t get all the way back to the water. Swim shoes would be a good suggestion but not required. I did not use any. Don’t forget to reapply sun screen before you leave!!! Lol

Great hike but very hot! Some shade depending on time of day, but worth every minute once you jump into that water. Wow so much fun.

This was one of my favorites when I still lived in AZ! It's been a long time, but I loved coming out here to do some cliff jumping and cool off from some of that AZ heat. Definitely a fun area, make sure you bring PLENTY + some extra water.

Fantastic hike that I would rate as moderate. Did see a Bull Snake on the way but it have us no trouble. Spent a few hours at "The Crack" for some frigid swimming, cliff jumping and lunch!

We hiked this trail at the end of April, but realized the weather would have been better a few weeks earlier. The ‘crack’ is at the end of the trail. An awesome swimming hole/cliff jumping spot! Highly recommend.

It was a steep start. It would be a nice trail if you just do the first climb. The views are great. Not really worth the effort to go farther.

If you have children 10 and younger I would advise stopping at the first checkpoint and turning right back around. It is mostly flat until about the last mile, but it is a long hike and not much shade or places to really stop and sit. Take plenty of water and snacks. It is not to hard and there is an incline at the end that gets more challenging but please wear comfortable shoes. Just know it takes some time to do the whole thing. It took me 3.5 hours with 3 short breaks for water and a snack. The longest break might have been 5 mins and I was walking at a moderate pace.

Kinda a free for all climb as you get near the peak (no real trail markings), a bit more treacherous than I was expecting, but 100% well worth it once you reach the top

great trail

Nice hike with good views. Long strenuous hike up to the top, however.

Great as always!
