Hell's Gate Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This arduous but popular hike crosses several hills before climbing a ridge and then descending 1,800 feet into the Hell's Gate Wilderness and Hell's Gate itself the steep canyon where Haigler Creek flows into Tonto Creek. The half mile immediately into or out of the canyon is notoriously steep; the hiking time reflects the difficulty of climbing back out. Although described here as a one-way car shuttle (though, admittedly, a monstrous car shuttle), this route is commonly done as an out-and-back from the north side, frequently as an overnight."
