Easy - Beginner Map

nice trail for this beautiful weather! had trouble finding some of the markers, but the horse poop lead the way. ;)

Love the horses in the water staying cool

Trail is very easy and pretty well marked. Missing a few markers at the half way point which leads to some confusion. Didn’t see horses but was a great walk either way.

Better than my last visit. Didn’t have a bunch of trash thrown and left behind by people who don’t care.
Water level was very low. Kayakers were having to get out and walk their kayaks over rocks and sand bars.

Easy trail for all skill levels

Fun for the kids. Pretty little pond, lake looking area. Can do a quick hike if you feel like it or enjoy the view.

Nice and easy!

beautiful trail with spectacular views. It's fun for the family.

Little too heavily trafficked for my taste, but a nice place to catch a sunset

I've been on quite a few trails, and in my opinion, there was nothing "easy" about this one. Most of it was uphill, which is fine, but it was super rocky. If you are a beginner, I would not recommend this trail. The views were great, as most trails are, but it was poorly marked. Even with my GPS out some of the way, we managed to get off the path twice. It was probably the worst trail I've been on.

super easy, beautiful and right in the heart of Phx so easy to get to.

Good for kids

Super easy but nice views from top.

It was great easy hike to do with the kids.

Pretty scenery but very hard to follow, even with the AllTrails app up. Basically, everything that you think would be the trail is not, and everything you think would not be the trail...is! You are better off just wandering wherever your heart takes you.

great for extreme mountain trail riding. The optional wild horses makes it so much better.

Very easy no great views of the river

This was absolutely breathe taking. Got to hike an see all the wild life up close. The the adventure we were able to make.

Quick, fun, beautiful!

beautiful rock formations. easy to navigate, but is a very short trail.

Great hike, easy but felt like a good workout for me as a beginner

Nice easy first hike of the season with Girl Take a Hike! 40 plus Women!!!

Joke of a trail especially around 4am. Fun little hike at night with really nice views at the top. Bring lots of water, you'll need it!!!

Less of a hike, more of an enjoyable walk for the dog! Pick a route, any route. Not much of a trail in the beginning but super enjoyable to climb up the rocks.
5:30-6am is a great time to sit and watch the gorgeous sunrise before winter starts, we’ll be back for sure!!

This is an easy trail with some mild elevation to keep it interesting. Short enough to do even in summer weather in Phoenix. Make sure you bring plenty of water, as there isn't much for shade (though there is a water fountain at a pavilion along the way).

Biggest detraction is that it is very poorly marked. We had to rely on the map in this app to stay on trail and even then it was a challenge. On the positive, because the landscape is open desert, it's easy to see where you've been and where you're headed, so you're not likely to get lost.

Great trail for beginners or those who just want a quick outing. Despite being a holiday, it wasn't crowded so while we saw other people, there was no unintended company.

Short hike, still slippery if no hiking shoes. Good for kids n dogs.

Double easy nice for bike.

Good easy inner city hike.
