Rain is rare in Arizona, so a hike along the 3.3 mile trail to its effective termination where it ends as a stream through a canyon was a treat. I was surprised by the number of seniors, besides myself, making the trek. Overall, there is little climbing and a good trail, with a few rocky parts and the need for balancing on stepping stones on the 13 creek crossings. If one is prepared to wade, one can continue on much further… and camp six miles from the trail head. Hope to do that in the not too distant future. One warning: the parking lot at Call of the Canyon parking lot requires a special permit. The Red Rock Pass, the Seniors Golden Pass, etc. all invalid. We bought the Big Three pass and hiked Cathedral Rock trail the next day out of the Crescent Moon Ranch day use area, another of the Big Three. Unfortunately, finding out all about the permits is confusing and some documents have out of date information.
