Not easy to find trailhead. we basically drove through an RV parking area and then started walking. Nice, wide trail. I would rate as moderate. our stepper said we hiked 3 miles.

Sad because spot has potential. Not well maintained. Trashy. Short walk but definitely NOT a hike.

Convenient location. Easy walking. Bike trails as well. Trail runs along Colorado River and frequently has a variety of birds.

Spend a few months each winter here. Do trail everyday ! It’s great exercise and challenge! View is awesome !

This and the Marty ridge/ liberty bell ride also listed are in the same area. Read those reviews and you get the picture

This was a fun hike. It is a steep trail in places but the view is worth the hike.

First time visiting, nice trail. Lots of scenery as you ascend. Beautiful view at the top and well worth the climb. However, would prefer if they had markers or signs to access the base of the mountain.

I hiked this about 8-10 times when my husband and I were stationed in Yuma. The view at the top is amazing, but if you are out of shape it will take you awhile to go all the way up once you get to the base of it. Still, it is challenging (which is great), and very rewarding to get to the top. Peaceful and a great way to spend an afternoon. Bring lots of water if hot outside.

I’ve done this hike several times and plan to do it on the regular during my winter return. The gravel/rock path to the base of the pass can be tricky in that about 10 min in you need to take a left off the trail up a rock side when it seems like going straight is the answer. Going straight gets you no where. Approx 20 min to Pass base and where the elevation gain truly gets started. Pace yourself. View from the top is lovely. Have done both sunrise and sunset hikes that were beautiful!

Fun trail, very rocky! Wear good shoes. The path up the mountain is more of a steep climb and a little strenuous but exciting! It was a good workout.

Trail is very beautiful hike, rather easy until you get to paved part at the end!!! It’s very steep and hard climbing

Did it twice and it was a gut Check ( challenge) but everyone was very friendly & encouraging along the journey.

I’ve done this trail quite a few times since moving here. I’m looking forward to the 1st annual duathlon there in November. 5 mile bike then 5 mile mountain run

Excellent...unique opportunity to see diverse wildlife (fish, mammal, bird) in desert environment. Great job by Yuma to bring this area back to life!

Great trail, quite a challenge one you pass the hat and hit the paved trail up. Take your time.

Beautiful view! Love the challenge of this hike.

Helluva walk! Be sure to sign the trail log & follow the instructions from the Phantom Hiker!
Bring a bag and help pick up some of the trash on your way down - please and thank you!

This was a good walk. We waited until 10:30am to get started. For This time of year it was a little too hot already. I would recommend earlier in the morning. Most of the trail is in the direct sun. There is only shady areas at the beginning.

I did an early morning hike and was rewarded with a great sunrise at the top, as for the rating, this should be rated a hard hike once you pass the gate at the bottom of the hill, it is quite steep and long.

Good hike in cool weather. Starts out easy and gets hard once you reach the paved road going up the mountain. The view is worth it.

Easy trail and easy to navigate, great views

Nice walk, great for dogs and the trail is paved in a lot of places

Totally worth the sore legs if you make it to the very top!

this trail is a nice hike in the beginning with beautiful scenary. once you hit the pavement road it gets really steep and tough

This is a fairly difficult trail with rocks and hills. I didn’t make it to the top-legs were trembly after climbing rocks. Will plan better next try.

Decent hike for Yuma

Who rated this trail as MODERATE? I’m a a regular hiker who likes climbing and I found this hill challenging. And I also find myself being called back....

This was a great workout. I would definitely label it as a hard hike though. This is not for people who are out of shape. The grade up the mountain is quite steep and pretty long. Beautiful views at the top. The only thing I didn't like was that the road was paved. It kind of takes away from the hiking experience. But it is an access road as well as a "hiking trail" so I understand why.

This is a great trail for hiking although I cannot understand how people who bring their dogs along are too lazy or inconsiderate to clean up dog shit. You really have to watch where your are stepping. This selfish act by others really ruins the hike for other people.

it's a great place to scoop trash out of the water......half a dozen dirty diapers in the fire ring right next to the water. you're better off walking the road around the lake
