A classic loop through the volcanic hoodoos of Chiricahua National Monument, the hike starts from the Massai Point Trailhead and uses the southern portion of the Echo Canyon Trail to reach Rhyolite Canyon. Then, the loop follows the Heart of Rocks Trail up Sarah Deming Canyon and into Heart of Rocks itself. A side trail leads to Inspiration Point and a view of upper Rhyolite Canyon. The route finishes with the remainder of the Heart of Rocks Trail and the eastern section of the Echo Canyon Trail.
