A nice moderate trail through great desert scenery crossing creeks and twisting and turning around the hills. Provides a loop opportunity between Hawk's Nest Trail, Valle Verde Trail, and Dixie Mountain Loop.
A beautiful hike full of Cactii and neat flora. Easy to hike for all levels. Well marked with user friendly signs. Wonderful Phoenix experience to do!
Super fantastic trail! It was a little busy but not so much that you couldn't enjoy being in nature. There are now restrooms and water fountains at the trailhead!
