My mom and I did this hike in March—it was beautiful!!
The hike was much more difficult than we had anticipated, however it was a lot of fun and we were up to the challenge. The hike was described as 'Arizona level' by the guide— which we learned does not equate gradual inclines/declines; rather the trail is rough with continual climbing and descending in the canyon’s terrain. Don’t let this scare you away however, the scenery is incredible (the drive through the park to the trailhead alone is an adventure ((gorgeous!)) and the ruins are incredible. If you want a challenging (and ultimately rewarding) hiking experience in AZ, this has to be it!
