This was a great hike for friends and family, especially novice hikers. Great to see so many enjoying this hike. The elevation gains are gradual until the last 5th of the trail. If you are an experienced hiker, you should definitely continue to the peak beyond the signs. It isn't that difficult and gives you a great view of Four Peaks and the Phoenix Area!

Fun trail that is very close to downtown Mesa. Parking & restrooms with paved roads throughout.

Very easy hike, did this with my girlfriend and dog. Somewhat crowded, but not as bad as other local Phoenix hikes. All in all, about two hours of beautiful desert landscape.

Gave this a top rating since you get a great view for not too much effort yet the trail is not too crowded (at least on weekdays). Concur with previous review regarding fun for kids. My boys had a blast. The trail to the peak is pretty good for not being maintained (sign at Wind Cave states so). The nameless peaks to the east are worth exploring, too.

There are a lot of curves on this trail and pockets where the breeze is not available. When we went it was a hot day and the rare breeze was welcomed. Scenery is fantastic. For a short, 3.2 miles, trail it is really nice. There are other trails nearby and you can spend a full day for the prie.

If you are looking for scenary, this is the hike for you! Georgeous, thick vegetation that goes on for miles. This is an out and back trail with a distance of about 3.2 miles with a moderate to slightly advanced difficulty. Close to 2/3 of the trail is all incline with quite a bit of switchbacks.Although once you get to the top, it is well worth the work! In the far off distance you can see the Fountain Hill Fountain go off every hour on the hour. You have to look close or you'll miss it. This is a great hike for kids because there are a lot of big rocks to climb on. Definately bring your camera for this one. Great photo ops at the top!
