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!

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.

Decided to do this trail April 24, 2015 at 1pm. It was pretty empty. I seen a total of about 3 people. It was very simple in my opinion and the scenic view was awesome. If you're looking for something simple and relaxing, I would definitely recommend this trail.
