First time on the trail. Little rocky for a rating of easy, I would consider it moderate. I would definitely do this trail again but not in the summer since there is no shade.

we saw a Mojave rattlesnake near the trail by the tall grass area near Oliver Ranch. we had to turn around and go back. Be careful. Otherwise we love this trail in cooler weather.

We decided to walk on the oak creek trail that you access on the “out” end of the fee road. We walked all the way out to the canyon, passing by Middle Oak Creek and continuing on where they all meet. You can tell it’s starting to dry out in parts, but you still get a good hike through the creek if you’d like! When we got to the canyon walls we scrambled up the rocks to enjoy the view from above. We had to crawl under grape vines and overgrown trees, but it’s so worth it! I wasn’t able to record my whole route because of battery power, but we went about 2 hours in to get to the spot! Definitely recommend going as early as possible - and always check the weather for the wind and rain forecast! ALWAYS REMEMBER TO LEAVE NO TRACE!!! Pack it in - pack it out and make sure you don’t leave anything behind.

Did this one counter clockwise. Came back down along the canyon. Trail was easy to follow.

Excellent day hike. It took a bit longer because I added 2.5 miles walking in from the main entrance. If I did it again I would have joined the lower trail and this one for a definite challenge. great view of the cities from the peak. It was very windy that day. Wind could nearly push my off my footing coming down. I completed this hike Mid-May

Tough and not for the faint of heart. You have to want it! I packed light so as to make it to summit. I love climbing the boulders within the canyon between Rainbow and Wilson. Not much water to navigate across today. Lots of difficult patches to navigate back down, be sure footed and be prepared for a full body workout. Wildlife included chipmunks, lizards, cottontail rabbit, and FOUR MOUNTAIN GOATs which I came about 20 yrds from!

I cut the trail short from the suggested route. It’s an enjoyable walk. I arrived very early and saw nobody on the trail.

Great trail for hiking or biking. If you are hiking I would suggest starting early. Even starting at 7:30 we had to stop and move off the trail about a dozen times for bikers. Great views of The Valley. No shade. Easy hiking.
