We loved this hike! It offers a challenge as well as spectacular views! We climbed all the way to the top! My 9 yr old daughter wants to go back soon. It is dog friendly but I wouldn't recommend it as there are many cholla cactus and pieces on and along the trail.

Great views that I didn't expect and nice trail. I too was attached by fly's and ants at the top.

Great hike that is fairly easy and has great views! Highly recommended.

Nice loop trail especially in spring, pre-sunset when colorful fields are illuminated in golden sunlight.

We were going to just do Lost Dog Wash which is O/B, but after looking at the layout of trails decided to catch a little of all the trails -- Sunrise, Ringtail and it's highest point, Old Jeep, going to the top of Talliesin Ridge for the lookout, and back down Lost Dog Wash. That made for a nice hike. We've added Sunrise Trail to our list for the next time we're in the Phoenix area.

Great trail usually nice breeze blowing. Moderate trail.

Easy MTB Loop, gentle long climb and a super fun fast downhill! Great desert views!

It was an amazing trail! About a mile walk from the parking lot to get to the actual trail though. Also, it's a littler harder than it seems, buy definitely doable! Good amounts of ups and downs. No traffic at all. We were the only people on the trail from 7-9am on a Saturday. Beautiful views, for sure.

Trail head has lots of Parking and nice bathroom area. They provide maps as well. Tons of different trails, but all are well marked. I went to the top of brown mountain and quickly came back down. There was 100 flies that attacked me at the top. Not sure if that was just a one time thing or all the time. Trail is easy up the mountain and only gets a little steep with .2 to go. I give it a 3 star because of the flies... I would do other mountains around though. It took me 18 minutes from the trailhead to the top. 1.5 miles up FYI

Great spot to test yourself and train to get better... this is my first time really getting into Mt. biking & this loop of trails can make or break you...

Great long distance hiking! Stunning views! Not crowded during the week. A very hard, fun hike.
