I gave this trail a three stars because it was full of a lot of rocks. I tripped a lot and so did my boyfriend. We are not novice hikers and are in great shape. It just wasn't ideal for sight seeing as you hike because you have to look down the whole time so you don't roll and ankle. It's beautiful scenery though and a fantastic workout as you really have to lift your feet higher and grip the earth more. I would do it again but only if I was up for a good challenge. We went 6.75 miles and it took us a little less than 3 hours.

Nice trail, good for kids. There was a snake exhibit at the trailhead that was interesting. Kids got a sticker from the park rangers after completing the hike.

Nice hike. Not too steep but very rocky.

Amazing

It was amazing! The pinnacle peak trail is a nice warm up, but for experienced hikers this provides better cardio:)

Beautiful

Great Hike ! Be ready to sweat and climb up some
Rocks. Well worth the effort

Views on the trail is outstanding. Lots and lots of great cacti to enjoy. Solid moderate trail. Went with a guide, but with this app, you don’t need one at all. Will definitely be back!!

Great hike! Weather was bad (rain and wind) but definitely worth it!

loved the views and after climbing to the top and down to the other side, up the other mountain peak and down that side and than started over again to get back. great workout

Definitely worth it! Beware though that it is a 4X4 climb to the top.

Camelback kick my butt but it was so worth it!

Awesome trail! Difficult but rewarding 100%! Excellent vistas awarded at the top!

Great easy mountain bike loop. Nothing technical. Mostly fast single track and rollers. Some loose sand but mostly hardback with mild rocks and roots.

favorite trail in phoenix area

It is a bear! The rocks challenge your lungs and stamina going up, and punish your feet, toes, ankles and knees coming down. Great experience, but not for the faint of heart.

Felt like a stairclimber all the way out. GREAT exercise!!!

Nice loop trail. Easy climb, but with generous parking the trail can get crowded which can make it a challenge to move at a good pace

tons of people hike this but it's a great trail to get in some boulder hoping and get that cardio going. the views of Phoenix are great and worth the effort

This was a fun trail. Be ware it is more a rock climbing or rock hiking than a regular hike.
Bring comfortable hiking shoes (be sure that the shoes are for hiking). The views are great!
