Great hike through a forest of ponderosas! Dogs loved it, too.

This trail is a favorite for my family, water, pretty meadows, wildlife, close to town. We have done this one too many times to count and continue to go back!

on Thompson Trail #629

Love this hike for an easy out and back. It’s mostly flat and follows the beautiful flowing river. It’s a very green area in the late summer with lots of wildflowers.

Tranquil and Beautiful. Around every corner the landscape seems to change. You really get away from from civilization on this one!

Great hike! Nice rain, not that many folks know about this wonderful place.

Nice trail for most of the way up. Fallen trees on trail were a challenge. The view from the top is beautiful.

wonderful fairly flat hike crossed small streams. Large Ponderosa pines forest.

This trail wasn’t mark clearly to signify that we were on it or the B.V. Trail. It was good exercise & some nice views. The fresh smell of the pines is always welcomed.

Wow! $7 to get in to park just to hike! No thanks!

This is a beautiful little hike. There is considerable deadfall, mostly on the uphill portion.

Let's clear up a few inaccuracies with the trail description.

First, this trail is in Greer, AZ (not Eagar) and is several miles from the Mount Baldy Wilderness area.
Second, the Fir Trail is a 0.9 mile loop trail. It is very well marked, though portions are seldom used. The loop is a pleasant walk through the forest. The map included with the description is for the Fir Trail only.
Third, the trail description is really for the combined Fir and Ponderosa Trails. The Pondersoa Trail is 2.6 miles itself. The Fir Trail is rated as Easy, and the Ponderosa trail is rated as Moderate.

loved this trail. it was so relaxing walking next to the flowing water. the trail is not marked well so stay close to the water to stay on track.

So green and beautiful but take an abundance of mosquito and fly spray.

While the trailhead is clearly marked, the trail is not. Enjoyed the birds and wildflowers.

Fantastic getaway not far from the valley! We enjoyed hiking, paddle boarding, swimming in the lake, and fishing. The hike is a short 3 mile out-and-back, easy for kids and well maintained. Bathrooms and showers were all very clean. We had a harmless skunk family that would wander through our campsite every evening at dusk. Very peaceful campground and we can’t wait to come back!

Please note that the previous reviewer who stated it was closed came during the forest closure period to avoid forest fires. Almost all of the trails in the mountains were closed. Nice hike. Although it is nice to let others know when a trail is closed, by putting one star you may be discouraging others from visiting a perfectly nice trail. Never assume if you don't want to be disappointed - the local ranger station is always happy to let you know about trail and forest closures.

loved this trail! Everything was so green and the stream was flowing strong. it is fairly easy but still a good workout. kids enjoyed it too. saw lots of butterflies and chipmunks.

I love this trail. It is easy, beautiful and gives you a really good way to enjoy the great outdoors!

Cool trail! Road is dirt and has deep ruts. We went for hike during monsoon season. Drove there in an Impala and were able to get in and out fine. But if it has rained we would have most likely gotten stuck.

great walk. a bit muddy from recent rain.

A beautiful easy hike along a small river.

great little hike. the wind always blows here so I was never hot. Be sure to stay in the main big trail. There's a little trail to the left about half way up that leads straight up the mountain. is steep and doesn't save you very much time. The main trail is beautiful and very moderate. Don't kill yourself hiking the trail, just have a good time.

This was an enjoyable “walk in the woods”. Quite a few people around.

Easy hiking and wonderful for anyone with any skill level. I gave it a 3 because it seemed a little too easy for my personal taste and too close to the road. there was a spot that had some lovely wildflowers growing and a prime spot for taking pictures. I would do this one again if I needed something quick and easy and still get some nature in.
