I would do it again. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. made good time to. out and back just under 2 hours.

Great hike, it was a bit crowded but we went on the weekend! The view at the top is great and very neat to see all the ancient carvings in the rocks!

After 1st km km, a great sidewinder type of trail, fairly rugged, that circles three or four peaks and walks you along a few ridges. Nice views 360.

Ran this trail on Presidents Day. Was nice out and overcast and just a few sprinkles. The trail setting on the app was quite accurate once you hit past the old abandoned house and traveled north. Overall a fun trail with some challenges once you drop into the river bottom.

Outstanding views well worth the climb!

Always save an offline AllTrails map! It is very easy to miss the trail down from the top, especially if you plan to take in the many off trail views available. The cairns are hard to see in certain terrain and there is no cellular service.

Final advice - Allow six hours for the trip, start your hike at 9 AM to get the best sun for photography, and bring binoculars.

Did this back in July 2017. Truly scenic and beautiful! Brutal stretch above treeline with wicked winds and some snow! Trail was straightforward. Awesome to be able to see Sedona and the Grand Canyon far in the distance from the summit. Lots of parking. Start early! I made it to the summit around 9ish and there were dark clouds everywhere. Passed by alot of people, started storming around 12:30, hopefully no one was caught in it. Bring snacks and proper hydration!

A short easy hike to some fake some real petroglyphs. The waterfall was dry today and the limited water at the top was dirty and had some garbage in it.

Nice 3 hour round trip hike with great views along the way and at the top. The dirt road leading to the trail head was in good shape. A few others on the trail mid week.

Great workout with some elevation. Love the flag at the summit. A lot of loose rock with was a bit challenging but nice trail. Will definitely do again.

Great hike with short time.. more aggressive near the top but you’re in moderate down below.. views are incredible once at the peak.

Good exercise and strenuous near the top. Coming down you’ll want to be sure footed as the rocks are jagged and would be easy to turn ankle..

Great short trail. It may be easy for 20 to 40 year olds , but a little challenging for a 62 year old fart.

Great hiking trail, bring walking sticks because of loose rocks but there are steps leading up to the hole in the rock. There’s picnic areas across the street close to a little lake with ducks and fishing if you’re an Arizona resident. Look for prairie dogs, They’re doing a holes all over the place, also walk the botanical garden behind a hole in the rock.

Awesome - definitely more crowded than lower Antelope (which if you have to pick I’d do lower right now in the winter since there is not a lot of light).

One of the more scenic hikes I've done in the Phoenix area. Started around noon on a cool Tuesday (temp in upper 50s). The first half of the 'out' portion was crowded, meaning I encountered about a dozen people. The hike across the desert to Burro Cove was worth it, and I only saw three other people on this portion. Returned to the trail head to find wild horses in the parking area.

If you arrive without a pass in hand, you can purchase one at an auto-pay station near the Marina a couple of miles down the road. You don't need to drive 11 miles back to the gas station on Fort McDowell Road as the sign suggests.

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.
