Was recommended this hike from a friend that lives in PHX. Wasnt dissapointed! It is a challenge for people like me that arent used to the dry heat! I was really glad that I took the advise from my friend and started early before the...More
The mountain offers a 1 mile trail with so many warnings.... yes, it’s in the Arizona sun but it’s not difficult for normally-fit people. There seems to be a high number of half-naked hikers doing the trail. Free parking, nice views.

If you go up and down from the Echo Canyon trailhead, you can definitely do it in 2-3 hours. If you do the whole length from Echo Canyon to Cholla trailhead or vice versa and have to get an Uber or walk back to your car... More
