Really enjoyed this one. Beautiful August morning a little overcast. Great moderate hike, rocky terrain, not bad for a beginner trail runner.

Great up and down in and out trail. It is heavily used and well maintained considering the usage. Views are fantastic and all levels of hikers will find enjoyment.

some extremely slippery gravel in parts! the trail is deceiving, you think you have reached the end a few different times, but it is one of my fav trails in the phx area.

Trail head has lots of Parking and nice bathroom area. They provide maps as well. Tons of different trails, but all are well marked. I went to the top of brown mountain and quickly came back down. There was 100 flies that attacked me at the top. Not sure if that was just a one time thing or all the time. Trail is easy up the mountain and only gets a little steep with .2 to go. I give it a 3 star because of the flies... I would do other mountains around though. It took me 18 minutes from the trailhead to the top. 1.5 miles up FYI

Tom's Thumb trail is well marked and well maintained. At almost 5 miles out and back it is not as difficult a climb as I anticipated. Switchbacks galore and because the trail is smooth, running up or down is not a problem. Lookout point is just a short hop from Tom's Thumb and worth the visit, too. Overall a great hike and beautiful scenery.
