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.

Soldier Pass to Brins Mesa is a 'must-see' hike. The trail is well maintained and makes for a fairly easy walk. There is a long, gradual ascent to the mesa, although a few uphill spots rate as moderate. The views throughout the hike and from the crowning mesa are awe inspiring, transcendant, unforgettable. The trailhead parking is practically non-existent, so be prepared to park far away and walk some distance to reach the trail. This is a minor aggravation, but well worth the glorious views. Even on a weekend, the trail did not seem crowded. I will be back again and again for this fantastic hike.

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

First hike I ever did and now do it routinely. A bit crowded on weekends.

One of my absolute favorite hikes in Arizona. This hike is a go to year round and especially nice in the warm weather when you’re able to enjoy the water.

go up to the top , then come back down to the half way point. then run the back side all the way around to the front parking lot.

only did it 11 times in a row , in 13 hrs .

Great trail and easy trail. The Hieroglyphics are pretty cool to see. There wasn’t that much water when i was there but after a good rain it would awesome to see. 90% of the trail was even, and easy to walk on. Gradual incline but nothing crazy. Kids can easily do the trail. Can’t wait to go back!

very cool hike, super windy at top..but beautiful views.

Great Hike! Almost no shade on the trail though, so the sun can be brutal

Beautiful hike with a well maintained and marked trail. Loved this hike!

We did this today, but via National Trail at Buena Vista Lot, and it was great. Made it to Fat Man’s pass and turned around.

This was the perfect trail for our group to have a great experience in the Grand Canyon. Started at 10 am, took 2:50 out and 2:50 back, plus lunch at Plateau Point. Weather was cool and cloudy on the way back up. Coming back up is no joke, but we found a good pace and it went by quickly. The stations every 1.5 miles broke up the hike very well. Definitely an enjoyable day in the canyon!

Great hike , fantastic views, bring water, sunscreen, map, portable phone charger etc. FYI there is no permit needed to park, hike or camp in the superstition wilderness, however you cannot camp in the parking lots. This hike is in the superstition wilderness and starts at peralta trailhead. You can leave your vehicles overnight in the parking lot. The superstition wilderness is part of the Tonto National Forest. The Tonto National forest starts at the sign about a third of a mile from the trailhead. That first 6.5 (approx) miles of dirt road is state land and you are supposed to have a permit to camp park etc on that land. Other rules for the wilderness are posted at the trailhead. During the hiking season, normally October to April there are volunteers at the trailhead to answer questions; usually until noon. Peralta trailhead parking lot fills up by 9am on weekends, but there is overflow parking about a quarter mile down the road.

Fun hike! Get there early if going on the weekend because it gets busy.

Great trail, saw 3 rattlesnakes

Great hike. The hieroglyphs were incredible

The rocks are a bit too loose, too big, and too irregularly shaped for my liking. The trail is a bit confusing and isn’t marked and branches off in many directions a few times. I passed a few families that seemed familiar with the trail and enjoyed it. This was my first time and probably my last. No thanks.

It’s a high trafficked Trail. I took my dog, and she loved it. It’s great for families, as well. VERY HARD TO FIND PARKING. You have to have good luck from the parking Gods to get in that tiny lot.

Great hike! It definitely will get your heart pumping.

It was a very difficult trail towards the summit. It was totally worth the climb, and I felt very accomplished after the climb.

I guess what I should have said is make rock cairns, DON'T USE SPRAY PAINT!

It was an amazing experience to be there and see such a beautiful place! It was a lot of fun to do the hike, it wasn’t too hard!!

For the person who said take a spray can and mark the trail, give your head a shake!!! If you need the route marked out for you best stay in town.

We hiked it during a rainstorm, which made it a bit more difficult to maneuver, but we started early and there were less than 10 people at the bridge when we arrived. No wait for pictures, and the fog and mist in the background made the view even more spectacular!

Beautiful trail! Parking was very limited. Had to park a couple miles out on a road in a residential area, but the additional hike to the hike was worth it.

Very nice trail. Good signposts. Lots of people. Safe area for lone hikers. Incredible views of the valley.

lots of traffic, easy and well marked

very easy to follow, nice trail head. A good hike

Apparently I’m out of shape because it was hard!!! Beautiful hike, wouldn’t do it in summer.
