Great loop trail. We hiked it on Dec 30th and there was no one else on the path. Beautiful views. Easy to find route. One of the best short day hikes we have done.

This was a fun hike.. elevation and I don't get Alonso it was rough at some points but so pretty.. well marked..

I would consider this moderate trail. We hiked in fall so areas had leaves fallen. It was gorgeous but it does get slippery to walk on wet leaves. Beautiful scenery throughout the 4 mile trail.

not great for running. overgrown and scratchy. much better scenery elsewhere nearby

This is a great trail, but it's awfully crowded. We had beautiful fall colors the entire way. We hiked up Marshall Gulch, then turned left at Aspen Trail. There is a nice overlook a half mile along. We had an amazing rainbow while there. I'm not sure that happens every time though. :) Due to time restraints, we came back down Marshall Gulch.

We hiked mid October and the leaves were changing and dropping. It's really beautiful. My favorite thing about the hike is that there are so many scenery changes.

Really enjoyed this hike. After driving through Summerhaven go to end of road. We got on the trail right behind the restrooms on the right side and took the loop counterclockwise. The first half of hike felt like I was in New England. Cool temperatures for September. The second half is SO beautiful as you go through hundreds of new pine trees and then the aspens. It was a little busy for the first 10 minutes, but then we were alone most of the hike. Easy-moderate. So much different than Sabino and Catalina but still lovely.

I enjoyed the trail up until the bend where the trail is overgrown. I didn't want to go through all that so I turned around. Nice and shady trail. Very quiet as well.
