My husband and myself hiked this loop on a Monday morning, for the close proximity of the hike to Phoenix it is still really nice with great views of the saguaro cacti vegitation. It took us about 3 hours while stopping for sushi halfway that we packed and sat on the cliff face watching people grunt up the hill. Hike clockwise on the trail if you don't want to climb the big hill but you will have to go down it...nice trail very easy but surprisingly busy for a Monday! I am used to hard hikes this was very easy in my books.
