Great hike and definitely moderate. There are a lot of ups and downs and no shade. Definitely recommend going earlier if possible. We hiked ~9am - 11am.

Very hard, took us 4 hr 50 minutes and we are pretty fit. (2 hours down, 3 hours up) AMAZING views the entire way down, so it was a great way to really see the canyon up close. Better than the rim trail but the terrain is very hard here, so be aware of that. We started at 7am - start as early as possible. I went through 3 L

beautiful trail with great views the whole way. it’s extremely steep and has intermittent shade if you go in the morning, but this is definitely a hike for experienced hikers.

Extremely crowded trail. For the first half you walk on a ride with trucks and 4x4s. Don’t select this for a nature experience.

Great short trail, child and dog friendly. Very gentle inclines up to the vortex, it was the perfect little hike to take my 16 mo old son on in a backpack hiker. Note that it is in the sun the entire way with little shade so hiking early is better for cooler temps.

I hoped to show my husband this awesome easy hike. But due to Covid it’s closed- 7/4/20

It’s a great trail for all skill set. Most of 318 has no shade so I would start earlier in the morning.

Amazing trail, I actually took this up to Doyle peak. Got some amazing views of the San Francisco peaks on top. I recorded some of the hike in 4k. You can view it here for reference: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFCcB03vM-nepESoPJ4KvA

Not busy, even on the 4th of July. Pretty hot, I recommend getting to the trailhead early! Well worth the views.

Best trail in East Mesa if you have under two hours. Rugged terrain, challenging elevation changes, but the 360 views at summit are worth it!

Made it to the summit.

super easy for all my kids. They wanted to come back with food for all the ducks/geese.

This is a great hike, my only complaint is how busy it is/was. It is a must see for the area if you stay around Scottsdale, but we preferred the Superstitious Mountains if you can spare a little bit further drive.

Awesome trail. Recommend going clockwise as its rockier uphill going that direction. Beautiful views from upper elevations overlooking Flagstaff.

as usual, another great hike. The heat was no joke! go prepared!

Nice trail for an early morning hike. Lots of shade and a few steep inclines but very manageable. We went off trail for about a half mile but looped back around to the main trail. Several deer along the way.

Started around 5pm and headed clockwise. We liked the trail but not really as much as we thought we would based on other reviews. The views are amazing and as the sun was coming down to set it was really nice. We only saw about 3 people the whole time.
