Ocotillo-Sidewinder Loop. I enjoyed the Sidewinder Trail while the Ocotillo Trail is pretty flat and boring.

My go to hike-living by Tramanto. From parking to the summit...about 50 minutes. Take D trail to DS then back

Very clean trail area and people using the area were all polite and aware of mountain bikes sharing the trail. Staying on the Desert Tortoise Loop kept my heart rate up, but was not too taxing. Summer is over time to go back out.

Good for
Mountain biking. Good variety but you better have tubeless. Lots of cactus everywhere

Great hike. Went at 5pm and watched the sunset.

I really enjoy this hike. I've done it twice now. It rates easy but I don't think it's very easy. Start early and watch out for the cactus.

Nice couple of summits. Lots of cholla so watch your feet. Got to see a desert tortoise!

Great trail for all levels. Watch out for the cactus!

Not 5.6 miles. 3.5 actual loop

Guess it's because I'm from Illinois where many of the trails are like a table top, but I'm surprised to see so many describing this trail as easy. To me, easy is, some- thing like Apache Wash or Pocotillo which are both just a few miles from here. My Run Keeper app showed almost 1200 feet of elevation gain. Got off to a late start and the temperature was well above 100 by the time I was done. Must have been the heat made it seem a little difficult. Nice trail though, definitely not crowded, only saw two other people.

found my log this morning after abandoning 1 week ago. it was 106 and 12 noon when i dropped it off on the trail.

make sure you know what trail you're on, easy to get lost

great hike, over 5.4 miles to Summitt on D trail. great scenery and view

Great hike and worth the time and effort.

Nice little hike, I think more like moderate rather than hard. Pretty enjoyable, best thing about this hike is its not at all crowded, maybe because it's July, but still I saw five people all morning, and four were within the first 1/4 of the hike.
