Until I hiked here I had no idea the desert could be so GREEN. There are so many cacti and bushes that for once brown is not the dominant color. The trail is moderate difficulty with a steady uphill but nothing drastic at all. My dog and I did just fine. The real trail ends in an area covered in boulders. You can either sit on some of the rocks you come to initially, or you can easily climb over them to get right up next to the petroglyphs. The drawings themselves are right above scenic pools of water- yes, even in the desert without any recent rain there were pools. They were a little buggy up close but mostly fine. Apparently you can hike beyond this area but I didn't try to. This is a place to go and sit and enjoy some nature. Great place for a picnic too! Remember to face away from the petroglyphs for a while and look up to see the balancing rock. Cool little town to drive through to get to it too- tons of signs pointing the way, you can't get lost driving in. Also can occasionally see downtown Phoenix from the trail- pretty cool!
