Ran hiked it to the basin in about an hour. Could run the first mile but then footing and rise caused me to walk rest to basin. Basin looks cool. Like a big magma flow.

Had fun. Was a great hike, had my 2 1/2 yr old in a kid carrier backpack. Did a little more than the Treasure Loop Trail, cut across to the middle of Siphon Draw. Was awesome!

It was a beautiful day and the trail was challenging but definitely worth the awesome scenery. However, this is a 9.5 mile loop from First Water trailhead to Black Mesa trail and return on Lost Dutchman Trail. Great hike!

Hard hike, but worth the great views.. Camping near base if you like to camp. if your scared of heights, probably not a good one for you. I have a bit of phobia, so coming down the steep parts was not the most fun.. Overall would like to do it again:) Recommend not going alone as its tougher and long. Easy to overheat.
