Bird watching

Really nice hike with varied forestry. Sometimes there is water in the stream and sometimes its dry. There are MANY stream crossings. Unless you have waterproof tall boots your feet will get wet. More of a moderate trail. You can not drive all the way to the trailhead. Add about 2 miles each way to get to and from the trailhead. I've hike this twice. First time I drove there in a sedan and I regretted it. You have to drive in through an active mine and the road to the trail has some pretty serious erosion. I scrapped the bottom of my car a few times.

HikingPrivate property

The first part is awesome! Cool mining shit and great view and lots of bird. But the last part where you’re on Juniper Flats Road is private property and then you’re just walking along a big road. Ending on desert terrain like that is an exhausting way to go. I recommend going on this hike, but taking another way back to town before the trail starts looping back to the south.

This is a big NOPE. Never again. I did not make it to the falls. I'm fit. I hike. To put it into perspective, my two most challenging hikes last year, that I would do again over this hike, were Skull Mesa with an elevation gain of 2742 and Grand Canyon Rim to River to Rim in one day with elevation gain of 4478. Arizona is paradise, there is so much beauty around us. I appreciate God's handiwork even in the mundane--this doesn't fall into the "breathtaking" nor "stunning" categories to me. Comparatively, I found this hike to be boring. But it certainly is challenging (keep in mind, I did NOT make it to the falls). I left Phoenix at 4:59 am and parked my Jeep at the trailhead shortly after 7am. A high-clearance vehicle is a must for that last 1.5 miles to the trailhead if you don't want to walk it. The descent is steep in most spots on the trail. When you reach the fork, go left. There is a spot before the end of that trail where it looks like you could slide right off the side of the hill. That's where you're going to climb down. Keep a sharp eye out for cairns to guide the way. I knelt, sat on my butt, held onto sturdily grounded rocks and slowly descended. You will need to go back up through this on the return. The hike along the creek is the worst part. Boulder hopping, some are unstable, piles of dried leaves that leave you wondering if your foot is going to fall through to China after stepping on it or if you're going to disturb some sort of spider, snake or critter nest below. Side note--at one point I stopped on a boulder to assess my next step and something below the leaves started chittering loudly. I was a threat to whatever critter made their nest in the leaves. There are many downed branches and trees to either duck under or climb over. My pace in this section was about a 60 minute mile. To compare, when I run, it's about an 11 minute mile. When I walk it's between 15-17 minute mile. When I climb Piestewa, it's about a 28-30 minute mile. This was walking on boulders, leaves and limbs with no elevation gain. It will take you quite some time to get to the falls. Bring your hiking poles. They will help you not to slide during descent, they will help you not to fall if you walk across the creek (the boulders under water are super slick) and the poles will also provide grip to the trail during your ascent. Bring water and a water purifier. I used ever bit of my 3L of water and I never made it to the falls. About 1 mile from the falls I had to turn back for the ascent since I needed to be home, in Phoenix, by 6pm. DO download the trail map before you lose mobile service. You lose mobile service about 1/2 mile from the trailhead and it never comes back. Not one hotspot. Hope this review helps someone. I never thought I wouldn't make it to the falls.

Easy hike, should not be rated hard. We made it a loop. Beautiful weather and lots of shade.

Very dry with lots of burned areas. Hot day but when we got to the ridge a breeze picked up to make it nice.

Great long hike above Bisbee. Returns via the road, but enough of a shoulder to feel safe. Gorgeous views up above Bisbee and towards the Chiricahuas. One section may pass through private property (when you rejoin the road), but all gates were open.

Hiking

This trail is incredibly difficult. I would not recommend this unless you are an expert level hiker. The last 9 miles are on a gravel rode and then you do need to walk the last 1.5 to trailhead unless you have a high clearance vehicle. I felt very unsafe and ended up turning by around. Maybe with other people and an earlier start this would be okay. But I definitely do not recommend doing this alone.

HikingNo shade

Great trail except the loop does not exist. The arboretum had posted signs where the trail is supposed to be. Had to divert to the paved road to the north of the arboretum to get back to our starting point. Not fun! I’d hike out to the Arnett Creek trail, have lunch, and hike back. Another alternative would be to leave a car at Picketpost trailhead.

Sketchy going up to Juniper Flats this way. You can, but this isn’t an actual trail.

Follow the road markers through the mine, 287. Better marked this time than last year. Yes bumpy dirt road. Only trickles of water in the creek during the hike. Someone has added red spray paint arrows to help stay on the trail. Got off course following rock cairns when trying to get to cabin. Hard to articulate spot if you don’t have a map, but it is a grassy area where often people camp, has forest service sign for private property access, go left not right at the rock cairns to get to the cabin. Any day outdoors is great.

HikingBugsGreat!Rocky

Well-paved, less traveled trail. Wanted to do the Bluff Springs loop but ran out of daylight. Fire damage burned down the amazing saguaro forest, a little sad to see. Flies/gnats were really aggressive today but think it was due to the fire & dead vegetation. Nice to see the other side of the supes, including sights like miners needle. Overall, peaceful trail with beautiful views. Will definitely do again. Feel free to check out my hikes @sophialouuuu :)

Not very clearly marked, but since it’s well travelled it’s not too hard finding the route. Watch out for jumping cholla! Our pup got attacked by a chunk. All in all, go before it gets too hot, wear flexible shoes and wear a hat.

This was our first time to this trail and it was a lot of fun. We unloaded just off US60 and Mineral Mountain Road. This trail takes you to Reyment Mine trail. The entire trail is very rocky but not difficult at all. Fun trail and it was good to get out there to be around plenty of scenery and one snake

The mine is active, but you are allowed to use the road. Never had any issues driving down. Trail head is 1.5 miles from parking.

HikingGreat!

3/15/21 The parking lot was closed and looks like it may be for a couple months. We had to park on the side of the road and walk over the bridge to the trailhead. Not a huge deal. We started the trail seeing wild horses at the water. We hiked about a mile and a half and saw the arrow to the oven. Enjoyed some lunch with the kids and explored the area. We read it was not eventful going the rest of the trail, so we decided to turn back. 5 kids and 2 adults. Beautiful trail. It’s typical Arizona terrain at the beginning then sand for the rest. My kids absolutely loved this one!

HikingGreat!IcySnow

East mountain trail #214 I loveddd it!! First of all very easy trail to follow amazing views lots of wild life we saw about 5 deers !! It is bear country keep that in mind! And plan accordingly. Now the road to get to this trail is a challenge to say the least under bad weather conditions u would need high clearance vehicle you won't make it with small car!! specially after a snow storm or rain... keep an eye for the color ribbon on the side of the road warning you about road conditions ahead. This place is a hidden jewel!! Awesome place to go for a picnic/camping lots of areas with benches and FIRE PITs also clean restrooms !!! I was pleasantly surprised...now the trail is classified as a loop in alltrails app but it's not really a loop is an IN AND OUT ...but u CAN make it a loop if u follow the trail for another 1.5 miles it would take u to the main road and then walk down the road to ur car ( that's if u park at #200 trail head ) or walked up the road if u parked at #214....we did it as a loop because of the snow on the trail. If u start at #200 trail head u will be going all uphill for about 3 miles is a good cardio but it gets easier then is all downhill easy! This trail is rated hard but I think is more on the moderate side ...we really enjoyed this one
