Le trail est vraiment magnifique ! Avec une vue sur phœnix en 360 à la fin ! Il n’est pas fait pour vous si vous n’avez pas l’habitude de faire des trails. Préparez vous bien et apportez de l’eau 😊 It’s a really beautiful trail...More

I like to do mountain hiking. This was a really nice adventure. Really close to our hotel in Scottsdale’s. The hike is no joke. I consider myself to be of good health and above average physical condition. Based on that, this kicked my butt. The...More

Would regularly hike Echo and Cholla (backside up) 10 years ago. Was one of those ‘’speed hikers’’. Today was just the second time in that span and must say it kicked my butt! I’m still currently in pretty good shape but not sure how was...More

I enjoy how you can take different routes up the mountain. Certain parts are very wide, and afford ones exploratory side to have fun! And the views are breathtaking! Might even catch a helicopter flying by!

I consider myself to be in fairy good shape, and this trail was a physical challenge! When I hit the boulders I figured I was just about done, but no, the biggest challenge was ahead. I had good hiking boots which helped immensely, but wish...More

This was one of the most challenging/difficult hikes I’ve ever done, but it was totally worth it. Go early before it gets hot and make sure you have plenty of water. Needed both hands at times, so bring a backpack to put your water in,...More

I've hiked all over the world and this short but very challenging hike (2.4 mi. up and back) is a jewel. I wouldn't recommend this for people who aren't fit or are faint of heart. The views, particularly at sunrise were awesome. Lots of people...More

Plan on spending a few hours on the way up. It can be incredibly steep, so we had to take lots of breaks. We went down the trail on the otherside, which offered new views. I recommend it!

I was huffing and puffing at the end, but it was well worth it. The trail is very steep at times. Started before daybreak and avoided the heat. Just missed sunrise. Took about an hour to get to summit.
