  • The trail was a bit much for some of our crew, but the rest of us loved it. It was sunny, but not too hot on that day. Saw a rattlesnake on the way down, so keep your eyes and ears open for that.

  • Not much to add to all that's been written. Landscape here very different from Tucson (very few saguaro cacti). Late March, lots of poppies blooming. Awesome rocks, reminds me of the northern border.....  more

  • Love Arizona, we hiked this today such a wonderful hike. It was not too hard even though we are not in top shape. The views are amazing and had wonderful sunset! We did see a rattlesnake only a few feet off the trail and it made rattle sounds so be watching but A++ views wow
  • The first mile is pretty steep but it's all switchbacks with beautiful places to stop and take in the views, so you can take your time. After that first mile it's easy and the rock formations are super cool. There are several paths off the main path for rock climbers but I took them anyway and they're great little views!
