    Easy hike. Great views of Southeast valley. Plenty of other trails to explore from the trailhead.

    fairly easy trail like the guides say, but very very rocky; lots of cactus & critters on the trail; the petroglyphs are easily accessible, but don't get fooled by all the "modern" ones that people have tried to put up as the old ones are much more subtle; saw several people along the way, but overall a very nice hike for a couple hours

    Awesome petroglyphs. Lots of families on the trail. Great for kids and dogs. Trail was well marked. A little tough on the way up

    Nice easy hike. Trail was a little rocky, not a dirt path which made us look down most of the way. The trail guide directions to the trail head were accurate however the cattle guard has been paved over. Petroglyphs were neat and we really enjoyed the hike. Took the whole family kids, 6, 8, 10 and dog and we all had a good time.

    Nice hike to the hieroglyphics. However, much of the hiking that approaches the Superstition Mountains hikes out of sub-developments, which you can clearly see for the entire hike. Definately worth doing.
