The final hike, my husband and I did, was also in the White Tank Mountains on the Willow Canyon Trail. It ended up being just about an 8.5 mile hike, with plenty of incredible views, and switchbacks. There is a longer trail: Ford Canyon but we didn’t want to be out too late. I would love to come back sometime!
We appreciated how well groomed the trail was, but wasn’t overly crowded. It took us about 4 hours and we only saw a handful of people in that time. We didn’t rush and stopped, took our time, and relaxed. My guess is you could probably do the hike in about 3-4 if you were on a mission.
We started in a rock bed and headed upwards. The first mile started with a good amount of climbing but it leveled out.
Just keep climbing…just keep climbing.

It was another gorgeous hike outside of Phoenix and I am glad we made it out there.
