The beginning of the trail is relatively flat but gets steep towards the end! It’s not super clear which path to take but multiple paths will get you where you need to go! Amazing views at the top!

Easy trail, nothing overly exciting to see.

Awesome hike for kids, ours are 5, 4, and 2. Parking was kinda crowded and a lot more people than what I usually like, but we also went on MLK day so that may be why. I imagine it’s just as busy on a weekend though. Such a beautiful place!

Good incline until the end and the way back is nice and easy. Good family hike.

Trail was really great. Definitely busier than I would have liked, but it was a holiday. I was impressed with all the kids and older people breezing through. It was MLK day and the lot was full so everyone was parked on the dirt road, we made the mistake of following suit and got towed. Thank goodness we had more people with a second vehicle to take us to our car, but they were ticketing and towing dozens of vehicles. Leaving folks stranded. Moral; no matter how many people are parked on the road, don’t do it! $75 for the tow and that was cheaper than a citation.

Took my 5 month puppy here and she did great. Be careful and pay attention to trail signs or you’ll end up on a different trail. Also, the downhill part is very steep with sand. Otherwise, a great hike and beautiful scenery.

Such a great hike for families! Long enough for the little ones to complain (it’s good for them) but super rewarding at the end with all the rocks to climb. I had an 11, 10, 8, 5 and 2 year old (in a pack) with me and they all did awesome. The parking lot fills up quick and I got a ticket for parking along the road... so watch out for that!

loved the hike. my two boys did it pretty well without too much complaining and they loved the end!

Nice enjoyable hike. Cool little waterfall at the top. Be ready to climb over some rocks.

Hieroglyphic Trail is a lot of fun and should not be missed, there are petroglyphs and small waterfalls at the end of the trail along with beautiful views of the Valley. This family friendly trail is a 2.8 mile moderately-heavy trafficked and rocky out and back trail. Depending on experience level, this trail is mostly easy with some moderate features including rocky areas / loose gravel and "possible climbing" for some around the petroglyphs and waterfalls. For bonus points, keep hiking past the waterfalls for a more challenging experience. Weekend foot traffic can get heavy, best for weekday and early morning use. We highly recommend this trail.

Definitely a good workout in the last leg of the trail. Parking at the trailhead is a bit tricky on the weekend and the trail is narrow in a few spots but not so narrow it is difficult to let others pass by. Takes a little over an hour to get up to the cave with a few brief water stops. The views are stunning and the cave offers a cool reprieve after the hike up. This is a rigorous but quick hike for any morning or afternoon. Trailhead is about 40 minutes from downtown Gilbert.

Great first hike in AZ.

Very very easy trail to hike, did it with my wife and her young nephews. Gorgeous when you get to the end with the spring and you can see the many Native American Petroglyphs. Carried a single bottle of water with me and was fine.

Blevins is an easy 3 mile loop, flat and well maintained, lightly trafficked perfect for Walking / Hiking and Mountain Biking. You will also see some horseback riding, mostly on the weekends. Family friendly with beautiful views of the Superstition Mountains, this is an easy trail with very little shade and watch out for cacti and stickers. Looking for something a bit more challenging, take Blevins to Cat's Peak Loop for a Moderate short climb. Usery Mountain trail system has something for most all skill levels, we highly recommend it. Again, with little shade, bring lots of water.

Riparian Preserve is a fun local park in Gilbert, AZ with very easy walking trails which are well maintained and groomed. Easy going, family friendly and perfect for dogs, this park is well traveled, especially on the weekends where you will find lots of families and kids throughout the park. Also, a great location for photo shoots.

Great trail! Took a wrong turn in the beginning, but found our way back and finished it out. Trick is you have to go THROUGH the wire fence when you get to it, do not go left! If you go left you are basically going around the mountain :) It’s a gorgeous sight to see, but not the way to the cave. Once back on the trial it was very easy to navigate the way to the top. Gets a bit harder as you get closer to the cave, but its worth the beautiful site when you finish. Careful on the way down as it gets pretty slippery on the loose rocks. All in all it was a great day out enjoying nature even with the detour.

Gorgeous, pristine, desert trail. The views of the Superstitions creating a back drop for all the cactus is just beautiful. Saw bikes, other walkers and horses but for the most part had the trail to ourselves.

Really cool hike! Can get confusing to follow the trail but luckily somebody had put arrows in the sand which really helped point us in the right direction! At the trailhead there is a sign that says “wave cave trail” at a fence - go through the fence. The trail is flat at the beginning then very steep. Had to climb up over some boulders as well. The views are amazing and the cave is really awesome. We stayed longer than planned taking photos and enjoying the cave. It was a cloudy day with not many hikers passing through. Would be a cool place to sit and have lunch. It did get chilly in there though later in the day.

Toddler alert: be prepared to carry your toddler and pass them up and down rocks near the top of the trail but totally doable with two adults.

Sweet trail for mountain biking loose and flowy will go again try not to crash again

Love this trail! Not too strenuous but just enough to get your heart rate up, depending on your pace. The length of the trail is maybe 90% loose gravel and rocks so I recommend wearing shoes with good grip and stability. There are a couple of spots near the top where older or less-steady hikers might require 3 points of contact, but still, I saw plenty of folks 65+ make beyond those spots with no problem.

Nice trail! But as others have said no markings. Park along the highway and follow someone to find the trail head. Going clockwise is pretty hard as I discovered today! Great views!!

À Nice trail along the river with smooth but certain slope. No difficulty. A nice falls at arrival

Very easy! If you do the whole 5.4 miles that is on All Trails, you will go from Manther Point to Bright Angel Trailhead, and back. It is paved the whole way, obviously snowy and icy right now. Perfect way to get some miles in, see some views, and not work too terribly hard!

Very nice hike with opportunities to branch out along the way. Very green desert after recent rains.
