this a great short trail. I run it quite a bit and you can add some legs to get a good 3 miles. lots of shade so great when its hot. Almost always get to see some deer as well.

I wanted so much to love this trail. It has water, great birds, horses, cool plants, and is pretty unique among places I've been in Arizona.

There was trash everywhere. I just wanted one spot on the hike where my partner and I could sit for 15 minutes overlooking the water without an empty beer can within 20 feet. Couldn't find one.

If Arizona cleans this area up, it becomes an easy 5 stars.

nice long flat trail, tunnel is very cool to walk through, have a light if you want to see any detail inside the tunnel.

Nice and clean!

great view from top. so close to reach from town.

Stunning views, pretty steep at times. I started in Seaside and only saw one person for the first four miles. Got pretty crowded the closer I got to Indian Beach. Large portion of trail is very muddy. Definitely wear hiking boots (not shoes) as the mud is ankle deep in many places. So worth the effort.

My partner and I did the loop as an overnight. The first day, we started out from the Clay Meadows parking lot around 1:30pm and headed up to fifth mountain via the red trail. The trail was fairly steep, but not too bad. We got to the junction with the blue trail with plenty of time to spare, so we dropped our packs and continued along the red trail in hopes of a dip in the lake. About two thirds of the way down, we decided we were content to stop for a snack at a nice view point and then head back up. Anyone filtering their water should note that the stream at the junction of the blue and red trails is the last reliable water source until after the trail fully descends from the mountains and reaches the lake maybe 7ish miles in. The fifth mountain lean-to was basic, but quite clean and we'll maintained with a composting toilet nearby. The views near it were spectacular, with an excellent vantage point for the sunset. The next day, we continued along the trail, coming across two rattlesnakes, cool, shady forest, and plenty more stunning vistas. Definitely recommend going out to Montcalm Point for a swim--though we didn't want to hang around outside of the water, due to biting black flies like you'd get at the beach. All in all, an excellent hike!

A lot trees blocking the trials.

First time going, theres a couple different parking spots with trail heads, but we chose to park at the lot at the bottom of Mt. Agamenticus look out [I believe you can drive to the top and park up there as well]. BEWARE of the bathrooms. My friend used the one at the bottom of the hill - No lights and poop all over the seat. Some trails are beginner friendly where others I'd rate moderate. We hiked to all 3 mountains; the first being the one with an actual view [if it's not foggy]. The second has no view but still has a sign labeling it Second Hill [LOTS of ants all over the rocks] and the Third One isn't even marked so we walked right past it [after taking Third Hill trail which actually ended up being a longer way - Easily could of took Ledge trail and been there sooner lol]. By the time we realized we had passed it we already had been hiking over 2.5 hours in the heat and was getting eaten alive by bugs [Yes, we put bug spray on before hand, but must've sweated it off] so we decided not to turn around. We thought we'd take the short way back, but ended up at Old Mountain Road. Used our "Maps" app on our phone to navigate the remaining 1+ mile walk back [on the road] to the car. Took us 3 hours to hike 4.35 miles.

Would be better if marked better

Awesome hike! Went up Loop and down Brook trail. Did some exploring at the top near West Peak. Loop definitely has a steep ascent - I wouldn’t recommend it for dogs, children, or inexperienced hikers. For three athletic people it took us about 4 hours.

Great hike to see an amazing attraction. I recommend getting there early, since the crowds get large later in the day.

Beautiful 360 views the whole hike. Only saw 2 other people the entire time. Highly recommended.

Great views but bring plenty of water if you plan on hiking into the afternoon. Start early if you want to avoid the heat.

This was an amazing hike. The falls were beautiful. It is a very steep climb, so be prepared for this. But it was not unmanageable by any means.

Took two older dogs on this trail. Had to fireman carry them back down. Great views otherwise.

Definitely a chill hike, play in the mud on the way up and wash it off in the falls as you swim in some amazing pools!

great hike, doesn't feel very long, lots of steps!

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

Great little workout

I hike this trail several times a year it is easy, but there are a few steep sections. There isn't much if any snow during the winter which makes it an excellent place to hike when other places are snowed in. A couple if years ago while hiking the trail there was a rattlesnake that buzzed at my dog on the edge of the trail. Beware if you are hiking with children. That was the only time I saw a rattlesnake but I have heard them a few times.

I hike National Creek Falls several times a year, it's absolutely gorgeous. A few times early in the season you can't make it to the falls because of a lot of fallen trees along the road. The trail starts above the falls and you hike down to the base of the falls. When you arrive at the base of the falls step down around the point at the bottom and you can see the rest of the falls which are obscured by a Ledge. You can cross the creek at the base of the falls and play in the water. Four years ago a lady fell and broke her leg so be careful. It is a easy hike.

It was challenging on the way up, especially with all my camera gear but the views are well worth it.

Decent trail IF you have high clearance off road vehicle. The hike from the lower trailhead is a washed out jeep trail with gigantic, feet killing rocks. Consider adamantium shanks for you boots. I went to the high trail in my Jeep. The rest of the trail has tons of dead ends and washouts. We spent 1/2 the hike bushwacking or bouldering. The approach to Harvard is less than great. Tons of false ridges, and we found too late you have to cross over for a north face summit. We were cliffed out around 14,220. Only plus side is we didn't see a single person on the trail over 2 days. There's probably a reason for that!

The trail is closed

This hike was okay. The views from the peak were nice but the trail itself wasn't very pretty. Lots of overgrowth. Steady climb the whole way, nothing very steep and few flat parts. Thought we would escape the heat but it wasn't the case. Very little shade but nice breeze towards the top. Not a hike we would do again and again.

Great views of Missoula. A quick 30 minutes. Not too difficult.

Views from summit are incredible; including Atlantic Ocean, Cranberry Isles, nearby surrounding Acadia summits, and Sand Beach. Out and back trail with options to continue on to Beehive, The Bowl, and Champlain Mtn. Recommend reaching parking early during peak season. Gorham Trailhead parking lot is quite limited. Nearby Fabbri parking lot is better option. Had the privilege of joining my kid's high school field trip group on one of Acadia's Ranger-led hikes up Gorham Mtn in May 2018. Highly recommend these knowledgeable tour guides!

Great challenging hike! Views amazing despite haze. I recommend bringing some kind of spikes/yaktrax and hiking poles (I did it without but wished I had them). There is a ton of snow to hike through and it's straight up! Took about 4hrs to get up and 1.5hrs down. We brought trash bags for glissading! It was so much fun after all that hardwork! I would recommend for comfortable glissading to wear waterproof pants and layers to keep your booty warm and some waterproof gloves! I hiked all the way up in a tank top and threw on my patagonia for the way down! Be sure to bring water and snacks to refuel!

Great hike for littles, though my 4 yo fell in on a slippery rock
