Very nice hike, though most of it is on a gravel road. You’ll walk on the road until you see a big clearing and a cement square structure. Take a left there at the fork. You will find a rock painted with “falls” and an arrow to the trail. Once on that trail you have a few options. Lower falls or upper falls.
You can even walk past the painted rock instead of turning and go down to the train tracks and the bridge as well. Love this spot.

Nice easy walk down a nice trail and bridge. The blind is good to watch herons and other birds I observed.

It’s a easy path with multiple trails to go down. Great place to see egrets, herons, eagles, falcons and other species of birds. Great place for doing photography as well.

I don't known I would consider this a "trail." Spend the admission fee to explore the battleship, submarine and hanger. Well worth it. Tons of photo opportunities while learning about the US Navy and the role the battleship and submarine played in WWII. Many of the aircrafts in the hanger were on loan from the Pensacola Naval Air Mueseum so I am sure these are always changing so you will not likely see all the same artifacts and aircrafts every time. The only reason I did not give tgis 5 stars is because this was not a true trail to me and the real fun starts after paying for admission.

Can anyone tell me how much further it is from the top of the ridge line over to Window Rock? Text me at (520) 603-4602 . I would appreciate it. My wife and I made it past the Finger Rock trail sign to the top of the ridge but couldn’t tell how far it was to Window Rock from there. We thought we’d run out of time not knowing the distance over.

Too crowded. Too exposed in summer and fall.

Pros:
1) easy trail
2) various routes
3) Smells good
4) Quiet

Cons
1) Sandy
2) No signage
3) Not a lot of interesting scenery

The views are amazing and worth the hike. It gets hot fast up there so either go when it’s cold or go super early.

A beautiful, relatively flat trail. I hiked without skis or snow shoes. Paths are worn enough. The loop shown isn’t totally navigable this time of year. I had to double back to find a used path across the river. Still a good trail!

Beautiful easy hike.

This is my favorite neighborhood hikes. Very new bathrooms located in the parking lot. And there are a couple hidden trails. The main trail is great for jogging or walking. At the end you can take a stroll in the quite neighborhood with gorgeous houses. (See if you can find the old Kardashians house)

Late review about a month. My friend and I were quite surprised at how easy of a hike this was. Getting to the falls was no problem. it was the falls that was the problem. There were none. There were only stagnant pools of water that people enjoyed jumping into. Coming back, we realized why the hike was so easy. we were going down. Going up was pretty inclined and strenuous because my friend and I were not very fit.

All signs are rotted, fallen or missing. Felt like we got lost or on wrong path so we set off in the direction of our car then randomly hit the trail we were originally supposed to be on... cute trail with some nice views but ended being almost 8 miles and put me in a bad mood feeling off track.

Love it

Great hike. Is bit tough for first timers as the trail is not marked. You also have to cross the river a few time so you may get wet

Nice wide trail to the top.

Truly one of the prettiest trails . I consider moderate to hard for being such a short trail. Cannot beat the views up there. The trails are nicely maintained and manicured . The Middle Ridge down to Arroyo is no longer- just dead ends and turn back.

Took the dogs, it’s a steady incline about halfway through, but a beautiful view and well maintained trail.

Hiked early in the morning to catch the sunrise. Had no idea the breath taking imagery I was about to receive. Even more amazing is watching how many people are hiking up to see the view as you make your way back down. Somewhat of a Mecca.

It was a great short hike. took me about 2 hours ( with a long stop when I got to the top).
