1st trip
This is one of those trails that my father use to take me and my brothers and sisters up once a year (or at least it seems). This is in my list of the top 5 most difficult trails. Since I have spent many days hiking the Grand canyon in the 70's, people always ask me what they should do to prepare for the Grand Canyon hike. I always tell them to hike the Window Rock trail and if they can do that there isn't a trail in the Grand Canyon that will come close. This trail isn't difficult because of its length or elevation gain in itself but because there are numerous steps (12 inches and more) along the trail that will wear the legs out fast. That said it is a great hike. From Tucson's west side, near Campbell and Grant you can actually see the window and say to yourself I've been there. Good hike for March to April depending on snow.
