So beautiful! Just right for an early morning cardio getaway. So fresh after last night's rain. I did the 2 mile perimeter, lots of good rock hopping, ups & downs to keep the heart racing. Reminds me of Sedona.

This is a very confusing trail that is poorly marked. If you look at the trail map the upper portion has lots of direction options with no signage.. If you skip this part of the trail and walk along the lake you will find a very pleasant trail also good for children and dogs.

First hike for my kids. The older one was a trooper. The younger had a few complaints but overall A nice, leisurely walk through the woods.

This is one of our favorite hiking areas.
Not overly strenuous for too long with nice semi level stretches to catch your breath while still keeping on the move. Tons of great rocks to climb with great views. A number of lizards and skinks as well as birds but only a few rabbits so far.

Loved the variety,scenery and shade. However not very difficult given the fact that the elevation is very minimal. I will definitely go again

Great trail with nice views. Some more challenging spots for the almost 6 year old and he was tired fast, and our under 10 set was very tired even with the double back at balancing rock, so I'd call this a moderate to keep short if you have a younger group of kids. Also, we saw a gopher snake; harmless and not interested in us, but I saw a black rattler in the campground the other day, so just be aware. Not a shock of you hike in AZ.

Starting on the left is much more of an incline. The trail is well established; much of it is paved. There's also a lot of information on the surroundings throughout the trail. Every once in s while you get s good view of the landscape. If you're used to the altitude I would rate this as easy.

My wife and I did the full loop and got off the trail a couple of times. Thanks to this app I was able to find the correct route. The south half of this loop is flat and boring but the north half is outstanding. If I were to hike this trail again I would go clockwise from one of the parking lot trail heads and then turn around at a little foot bridge over the water in the cove. It would cut the distance in half but would be a prettier and more challenging hike.

Great trail, great weather. It is too bad you can't swim in the lake to cool off.
