I really like this trail. The views are great and the trail is pretty neat, too. I stopped at the Cave of the Dome on the way out. It was interesting, but too dusty for me to explore more than a few caverns in, so I hiked down to the Tonto and then took that out to an overlook over the Colorado.

It is because the Mount Elden Trail is just such a great trail, and the summit is pretty nice, too.
