A beautiful trail of boulder hopping. The sounds of the birds, the coolness of the trees and the many colored rocks. We hiked in 2 hours and back, I would of loved to go further.

awesome hike! So beautiful & perfect length - was able to do this in 3 hours in the morning to avoid the heat. The only downside is the loud planes and cars on the road nearby.

This hike was so well worth it!!! Loved the scenery and the hills!! Also enjoyed that it wasn't over crowded

Great hike! Beautiful views with good challenges.

Stunning. Variety of terrain. Challenging in that there's several stretches of steep, continuous incline at times, however not terribly difficult beyond that.

Spectacular views of Battleship Mountain, Weever’s Needle and more. The drive to the trailhead is worth doing for the sights on the way even if you don’t hike an inch. Great challenge and worth every drop of sweat for the views!

Great fun hike. Be careful of loose rocks. Wasn’t sure if I reached the top.

Started at Canyon Lake and hiked about 7 miles in until I needed to turn back due to time constraints. Well-marked trail with rock cairns but there was no obvious “end”. The best views were in the first half of the hike; the second half was still interesting but was lower down. Very few people, pretty hot (some nice breezes, though), parking across the street at the marina, and really only moderate in terms of difficulty.

Went for the first time today. One of my new favorite hikes.

Not too difficult for me, but still a good workout. Pretty long hike so go prepared.

Wonderful hike. Beautiful views the whole way. Only saw a few other people on the trail.

Great Hike Today! Scenic overlooking Canyon Lake and other popular Top Hike Destinations Within Superstition Mountain Range. Nice incline workout both up and down the trail. Well maintained. Tapped in at 6.8 Miles with FitBit....NOT 4.8! Bathrooms and Restaurant on site with plenty of parking.

It has beautiful views from the start to the end. I've enjoyed it.

Only did 2.5 miles in. There are great views on this hike! You can see the weavers needle on several spots for great pictures and Canyon Lake. First mile is up hill, 2nd mile and half some up and downs with loose gravel. Will return to see how far we can do next time!

I wouldn't really label this as kid friendly, and this is definitely more climbing rather than hiking.. but I absolutely loved this place!

gets you from point A to point B. cool with regards to views of the lakes and the canyons, but the road is too narrow at many places for the amount of traffic there is.

I had a blast driving along the dirt road to this small, quaint spot. I climbed up to the small cavern and then down into the trench below the bridge. The only problem is... the trail is flooded out (at least what they App showed me was the trail). Because there was no trail I just climbed around and snapped some pictures. It’s amazing how small you can feel staring up towards the sky at the mountain tops. I wouldn’t recommend this for an actual hike but maybe a spot to check out and have lunch.

Loved it, not a lot of people around. Will definitely do this again.

Hard! Okay so originally we were gonna do the Boulder Canyon hike, which is 4.8 miles. But we couldn't find that. We could only find Boulder Canyon TRAIL, which is much longer. So we hiked this one, and since we didn't know we were going on such a long hike, we actually only went about 2.5 miles in. It goes up and down, up and down, so it's hard the whole time! Fun but challenging. I love how you can see Canyon Lake from the top!

LOVE this trail! It's long and somewhat challenging with the ever present incline. The scenery was amazing. The trail was very dog friendly. Definitely worth going all the way to Massacre Rock. The trail does get pretty narrow in places and a little steep here and there but nothing above a moderate rating. We did lose the trail once and got started down a different trail going the wrong direction so use your map if you can. There were many places where the trail would split and meet again on the other side of a rock. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. We did not see any waterfalls but could tell where there would be waterfalls if there had been heavy rain. Everyone we met on the trail seemed very friendly. Definitely plan to go back.

Great trail. Challenging at times. The distance is way off. 6.64 miles to the base of the falls. Even without water at the falls it is a good hike. At a couple spots it was difficult to find the direction of the trail but if you pay attention not too bad. Will be back out here again for sure!

Nice hike with great view. Went on a weekday and not busy. Easy side of moderate with a steady gradual incline. Decent overgrowth in some areas. Great for dog paws, just watch for cholla. No facilities at trailhead. Dirt road to trailhead was no issue.

Was warned by the ranger that this trail can get busy on weekends so we headed out early this morning despite the cool temps. Don't let this trail fool you. It is a workout with the steady climb. About half way you will cross a small saddle and drop into a short canyon. The trail gets narrow, brushy with a lot of loose rock. As you come to the head of the canyon the trail abruptly turns straight up the canyon side. This is the truly only steep spot on the trail but really a climb out. Once out of the canyon and on top start paying attention. The trail splits three times. Always bear right. The cairns will help. The trail to the left are only paths to view vantage points. At the third trail split there is a multi rock cairn in the split. You can go right or left. The left fork takes you up to the top of a rise which provides a magnificent view all the way back across downtown Phoenix and mtns beyond (30-40miles). The top of the rise is a sheer cliff on the back side. You will loop back to join the other fork which takes you up a very brushy draw to the head of the canyon with 3 waterfall spots. They are not running right now due to lack of water. Up and down in 2:45 with two water breaks and a snack break on top. Very worth the trip.

Ok hike. The views were decent, the trail was good and it is very dog friendly. Be warned, there will be a lot of horse droppings all over the trail.

Great trail. Enjoy

We went a couple days after it rained but there was no waterfall. I think you need to go the next day after a rain. It was still really pretty and a fun hike. We also checked out Massacre grounds which was very close by.
