Very early morning beats the crowds. And yes, on a pretty weekend day there are crowds. But overall a nice home to do over and again. Like most Arizona trails, you'll see it from a different angle every time.

Just follows the foothills. Rather boring. I wanted to go up to mountain top.

Slight incline the entire time. Easy to follow. Nice desert views. Small hieroglyphics at end of trail. Footing only moderate for trail running.

Incredible!!! Not a lot of smooth walking areas... Be prepared to climb! Great little knooks to pass through.

Great hike but pretty populated. Would maybe go again in the middle of the week.
