Fairly steep uphill, but otherwise not difficult. At the top you can wander a little to check out different sides of the mountaintop. But please remember to use existing trails or follow water runoff flows to avoid damaging the fragile desert crust (don't bust the crust!).

A challenging climb, wear solid shoes, a wide-brimmed hat and bring water, a hiking stick and your camera.

I did this trail with my two daughters (ages 9 and 13). It was a good walk up, not technically challenging but a lot of fun. Once on top of the mesa we wandered around and discovered some amazing views. Definitely worthwhile.

If you're experienced and want a quick good hike, or less experienced and want to push yourself a little but still keep it manageable, this hike is perfect. It's about 1 1/2 miles up, and only about 400 feet of elevation gain. Once on top of the plateau, make sure to follow the trail to the other side to take... More

This is a moderate trail that climbs quickly to the top. Once on top you can cross to the other side of the mesa. The trail on the other side follows the edge for awhile and is marked with cairns but gets a little tricky to follow after awhile.

While the next trail over, Fay Canyon, is undoubtedly easier for walking, the steepish but not terribly long hike up Doe Mountain lands you on a plateau from which you can see forever (in good weather) -- a perfect place to watch the beginnings of the sunset (so you'd be back down before it got too dark to pick your...

We started at about 3:30 in the afternoon when it was slightly overcast. This trail to the top was pretty short with switchbacks and nice views all the way up to the top. Once at the top we started taking in all the views and also lots of pictures because it is just gorgeous. I will say this, READ THE... More

We headed out early in the morning and decided to give this a try since we had our two doggies. It was well worth the hike! The views are amazing. The hike was a little steeper that I thought and had some tight squeezes to get through but once you make it to the top and see Bear Mountain and... More
