Less rocky than Thunderbird. Nice trail variations.

Relatively long and lots of ups and downs. Lots of commutation and permutations as there are short trails within the trail

Relatively long, but easy hike. Lots of trail variations to try.

Really rocky. Meh for mountain biking. Probably better for hiking.

Nice park with easy parking and nice trails. Easy and convenient for anyone living in the West Valley Phoenix area.

Seems easier if you go clockwise. You get the hardest elevation out of the way early. When it's over 100 degrees, I'm all about easier. Nice trail. Well marked and maintained. If you want more than 6 miles, there are numerous side trails.

Great trail, great hike with different levels. so pretty at sunset!

Love this trail

I had been hesitant to check it out, but it was beautiful! the deem hills area has a nice large park and ball fields, a large dog park at the base that leads up into the trail system. the trails were wide, hard packed and well marked. light traffic, moderate levels available.

great views and signature volcanic rock. I'm excited to get back.

Circumference trail is a nice 6.2 mile workout ..

Nice place for a family of mixed ages. They have a playground for the little ones who may not be able to make the trail (due to length), and a nice trail with good views for the older ones. No entrance fee for the park was welcomed as well.
