Any time you are hiking in AZ, try to go early in the day. The sun is scorching midday and you do not want to lose momentum trying to get to the top. Bring water on any of these hikes as well. Dogs are welcome, but please watch out for snakes and keep them on a leash. Rattlesnakes are common, but usually not on or close to the trail itself. STAY ON THE TRAIL. The trail is perfectly safe, but you never know what you’ll run into wandering off of it. From various cacti to snakes, you will not want to get bitten or pricked by any. The hike is easy to moderate and ages range from 6-80 that can manage the shorter hike. For more of a challenge, others attempt to reach the top and try the longer trail. Either way, its a fun trail to see the desert wildlife; animals and plants you don’t see anywhere else.
