Distance : 1.5 Miles, Approx 1.5 hours.
Cookstove Trail climbs to an elevation of 6,600 feet in a distance of only .75 miles, so be prepared to hike mostly straight up from start to finish. This is a good hike in hot weather, because the temperature is cooler at the top and will you climb through the forest trees. You get treated to views of Oak Creek Canyon at the top. There is a 700 foot elevation change.
