Love this trail! It is well maintained and easy to follow.

Beautiful. The hike out to the first lookout is only 2.2 miles, but it’s easy to keep going and turn back depending on how long you want the hike to be. Clear path and no climbing. There were only a few stretches of steep hiking, but otherwise it was not too strenuous. I would say this is a fairly easy hike, even for beginner hikers!

I did this hike on Tuesday with a buddy from out of town. It was the first time either of us have been in the San Tans. This trail is the most beautiful trail I've done in/around the Phoenix area, hands-down. Magnificent desert. I'll be back and hitting all those trails. Like others have said here, other than the distance, this is a piece of cake hike on a great trail.

A nice hike. It took about 2 hours to go round trip. Narrow path and fairly busy today but everyone was courteous and shared the path. I'm relatively new to hiking and I wasn't sure what a moderate rating would entail. It was good altho you need good footing and you need to pay attention to rocks and uneven ground. All ages were on the path.

Didn’t get to finish it, but will definitely go back!

We hiked up to the very top past the tunnel. Good fun.

beautiful evening hike so you're covered in shade. slow and steady incline. graft for running or hiking with kiddos.

We did this as a family hikes with 5 adults and three kids (3-7 year olds) The older kids walked all the way to the top of the cave and bottom! Wild squirrels were a joy to see and the winding trail and large climbing rocks was an excitement for us! Definitely a must and favorite!

Good trail. Glad I can read and know they have signs everywhere stating that the trail has a large wash portion (and it's on every map). Makes it easy to prepare if you're using the most baseline of observation.

I hiked this trail yesterday and I fell in love with it. The views, the little cave, etc. Magical!

Beautiful views and great trail

A nice and easy hike, the inclines are enjoyable. Great place for kids and pets!

Hiked this with my two teen daughters this morning. The weather was beautiful and even though there were lots of camps and trailers for ATVs on the way to the trailhead, the trail wasn't busy at all. We passed one side by side in the wash and met two ladies at the check point, that's it. Great hike and just challenging enough to feel like you've really accomplished something. Only downsides are that I don't love walking through sandy river bed and when much of the trail is ATV paths but since it was quiet, it was alright.

Great hike around the loop today. Warm temps but cloud cover helped. Nice easy hike with beautiful cactus!

Hike up Goldmine gets hard but only for a very short portion. Great for the legs! The San Tan trail connection is not very exciting, more like a desert walk, which makes it feel long and boring. Then you hit Dynamite and book it down which is fun and good cardio. Very little shade on this loop.

loved this hike

fun trail with decent steady grade up

Love the hike once you get to the trail. The approach is pretty flat, long and a bit of a drag if you’re just walking. If you are running out to the trail it would be much better.

Great hike and scenery. So many cacti!

Challenging and beautiful

Great hike on a sunny 50 to 60 degree day. My wife had a hip replacement just over a year ago and this was her first real hike since. Nice sense of accomplishment!

We enjoyed our hike very much on the 9th of February with no crowds, cool temperatures, and amazing views.
Spotted some deer at the caves and bald eagles soaring overhead!

I hike this trail frequently. The trail is a bit narrow (especially when hiking with my dogs). It is heavily trafficked, but an overall enjoyable hike with a good view of the North and West valley. $6 entrance fee you can purchase at the entrance.

Awesome, cool morning hike! Beautiful views and lots of wildlife.

Great hike. Some loose rocks on way down. Great view from top and cute squirrels. $6 to enter Usery Park.

Easy hike with a gradual incline the whole way.

Very crowded and a narrow path.

It was beautiful but crowded when you add in our two dogs on the narrow trail. Some bigger rocks but manageable. There were quite a few bees at the top this time of year so be cautious if you have an allergy.

Seemed shorter than advertised. Little bit of a climb but then it was over. Provably good if you are just getting back into hiking.

A perfect day for a hike! This was a challenging hike at times...but well worth it at the end!
