The Dynamite trail was introduced as part of Arizona's centennial celebration. It is a 2.4 mile trail that is accessible from the Goldmine trail head at W. Skyline Drive. It connects to the San Tan Trail in the northern part of the San Tan Mountain Regional park.
When you are in for a close to home hike this is a great trail with switchbacks, elevation gain, not busy at all and it can be connected with the San Tan Trail, Hedgehog and other connections which are easily understood and depicted in the map provided at both entrances. You can hike all day and never get tired of the scenery and silence of this majestic park. Most covered, 5 hours hiking and about 13 miles give or take.
What a beautiful trail to start your morning off right along with my energetic dog Quinn! Thank you God!
Nice easy trail with kids. Good views
I love this trail.
Easy trail. Mostly flat. It makes for a nice walk.
Great trail for my first solo hike that was away from my small mountain I hike weekly. Loved the community that was there everyone was friendly. Can't wait to hike more!
Beautiful easy hike for families. My wife carried my son in the ergo the whole way! Just what we were looking for.
Easy but nice
I live this trail. The gentle upslope leads to sow incredible views of the Valley. The healthy desert is blooming right now - my favorite time of year to hike!
It was really easy, it was mostly walking, and then a little hiking. I wouldn't recommend it if you want to do more than just walking on flat ground
Solid trail. Easy for all levels. We headed out from the Goldmine trailhead, quickly turning west onto the Dynamite trail. Being a point-to-point trail we decided to catch the SanTan trail over to Goldmine and take that back to the trail head. It's a great loop. Dynamite offers immediate views of the valley but your best ones will be on the Goldmine trail heading back to the trailhead. Keep in mind that once once you turn off of San Tan and onto Goldmine, you'll be hiking up 200 feet in about 1/8th of a mile, and the matching descent on the way back is pretty steep as well.
Fabulous trail for all levels, can hike, trail run, ride mountain bike. Get for sunrise & sunsets.
Nice trail for a December rainy morning
I did this one the other day it's 4.71 miles from the start of this trail all the way around to goldmine trail and back to parking lot. I really enjoyed this trail very beautiful scenery.
