Fun walk this morning, beautiful rock formations and amazing Saguaros.

I would not call this a difficult hike. I'd say that it is more moderate. I found the trail to be very easy to follow. Brush was cleared and there was never any difficulties determining which way to go. The scenery was beautiful. A great hike if you only have a couple of hours.

I’m 7 years old and made almost to the top then ran down and my dad could barely keep up. Fun trail. Will go back soon and make it to the top. Dad has to buy me hiking shoes and gear first!

Perfectly challenge Trail for a guy from Wisconsin

Ran 3 miles up and turned around. Nice scenery. More rocky than I expected.

Super well marked. Lots of additional trails all connected so you can go as long or short as you want. Great find.

Great trail, should have planned better time to see the “falls”. Other than that, was a pretty good time.

Great challenging hike. Start early before 9am. Very rocky, hiking boots required.
The only thing - at the beginning of the ascent to the peak there is a little “cave” consisting of fallen rocks right next to the trail. Do not stop here. Both times I have done this trail I have been attacked by the bees that live right next to it. So try to get past that spot ASAP but be careful not to fall.

Good workout, strenuous climbing and great view at the top.

Great hike to the top. I took the King Canyon. Good challenge, great views.

The drive wasn’t all that special, but hiking up the mountain was awesome, and the view from the top was breathtaking! Dog-friendly (on leash), kid-friendly. Even wit a stark elevation, our 3-year old was able to do it. Highly recommend!

This was a busy trail, but trail is well maintained and wide. Somewhat easy for the first 1.5 miles. Low elevation but challenging due to loose sands and rocks. The scenery is great, lots of saguaros and cool looking boulders. If you make it to the end, you will get rewarded with several swimming holes. I bet in summer this place is extra special with waterfalls and several refreshing swimming pools. The trail is about 3.5 miles each way. I started recording late and didn’t record the return. Overall this is a 8 mile trail and it took us about 4.5 hours to complete.

Very nice trail it's an easy hike. The Historical house is interesting to see.

Super awesome trail. Great views and definitely a hard trail!! But this app end on the wash and there is more trail to see after for a total of 5.7 miles instead of the 3.8 the app says!!! Glad we kept going and see the rest of the great views!!

This is by far my most frequent hike as I literally live next door and it's only a few minutes to the trailhead. I have hiked to the summit and have also connected to the Aqua Caliente Loop Trail at the fork, before heading up to the summit. If I don't have too much time, I will only hike to the cattle pond.

The summit hike can be difficult, especially the last mile. Definitely not a hike for the summer months. At the summit the view are spectacular. 360 degrees. The terrain changes from cacti to grassy areas to cottonwoods. You will find a jar at the summit filled with note pads and pens. Hikers leave poems or little inspirational notes.

All Trails says that it is a 9 mile hike. My Apple Watch records it as a little over 10 miles.

Fantastic views!
