A nice, quick, steep little leg-burner. The Echo Canyon parking area & trail are closed for improvements & parking expansion through Fall and Winter 2013. It's ok though, just take the Cholla trail that you can access via E Cholla Lane.

Not much shade on this trail so I would recommend doing it on a cooler day. Arrive early (by 7am) to ensure you are allowed in as they close access to the Strawberry trailhead when it reaches 50 cars or so. The views on the trail and the waterfall are a list see. But it is heavy with traffic, loud teens, large groups, and I was sad to see signs of negligence by visitors at the waterfall--trash left from picnics and even a couple of cigarette butts. Graffiti on signage was appalling.

I just finished this hike. Found a nice boulder to lay out and relax. Difficulty rises as elevation increases. It was awesome. The view was spectacular!

We enjoyed the hike, but it was a busy trail with a lot of none hikers taking pictures. About two miles into the hike we lost most people and the hike was great. The climb at the end of the trail was worth the hike.

Beautiful area great trail. The views are spectacular the only issue I had was the elevation. I was winded pretty quickly being the elevation is 5000 feet greater than what I am used to.
