These directions took us to Thumb Butte. There were no signs that read “White Rock,” so we asked someone who said she was a hiker who frequented the area and had never heard of White Rock Loop. This is not the first time the directions in this app have led us to locations that were incorrect.

Easy, pretty trail! Sandy path most of the way, with few narrow spots. We didn't see any wildlife, but saw plenty of tracks!

Great light running and jumping and scrambles. Good movement on this one. On the let’s do it again list!

Constellation loop trail was an enjoyable hike through the granite formations of the dells. There was enough change in grade, trail contour, and view to keep the hike interesting. It took moderate effort to complete the loop.

Cool trail system in the middle of town though not very expansive.

Awesome hike! I didn't know this gem was out there! Beautiful views, good coverage, and plenty people on a Saturday!

save the Dells!

great trail with great views, not very busy at all

Great hike with beautiful scenery!

We took our boxer and it was a lot more than light traffic. Ran into 5 dogs on the trail and some were off leash. Some pretty scenery though and an easy trail to walk. It was hard on our 12yr old boxer with rocks on the road but we managed to stay on the side of the trail with less rocks.

Wonderful, easy hike! Although there are shady areas of the trail, most of it is in the sun. We hiked in the morning while it was still cool so as to avoid the worst of the heat. I would recommend this :)

There are a handful of side trails that cross across the center of the loop, making it possible to cut the trail short if need be. The hike is very easy, good for kids and dogs as well as anyone else. Plenty of places to sit on a rock or a bench.

Half of the loop is within the granite rocks and is a little more steep (although only slightly). Follow the painted white dots on the rocks to stay on the trail. Kids will love rock climbing and exploring along the tall spires. At the highest point, you can look out toward Granite Dells and see Hwy 89. This trail never leaves the sound of the highway, so if you're looking for solitude, this isn't it!

Great hike if you're not looking to exhaust yourself and just want to enjoy nature a bit :)

Great trail! Went on a moderately hot day and took our 16 week old puppy. She loved climbing the rocks and basking in the little shade the trail provides. Bring tons of water!

Did this trail by myself and I’m not generally a solo hiker, although the views made it worth my while. I did the trail in 58 minutes, about 2.1 miles in the outer loops. There are a lot of areas you can just stop, listen, and take the beauty in. Nature really heals the mind, body and soul. Next time I will be doing the inner connecting trails.

This was a two hour hike for our family of 4. We have a 4 year old and a 18 month old. I would not consider this easy, more like moderate. There were small spaces to squeeze through, a lot of foliage, and rock climbing. It was a good workout and made it worth it when we made it to the flume to see the water. On the way back, we went around and were on top of the mountains for a beautiful view.

I came out here for Off-roading and it's fairly simple. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone because there is a few difficult areas. I did see 10 other dirt bikes and 5 hikers. It was a busy trail during the time I went.

Did the whole outer loop this morning, clocked in at 1.9 miles. The trail branches out into a few inner trails that connect to the outer loop, I'll have to try those next time. Great hike and awesome views.

Its a great technical short ride. you can ride all trails in 1.5 hours. Lots of black & blue runs. you can always walk your bike over the real techical areas if you dont ride them.

I love this trail, there are so many variations of it, every hike is different. After the rains.lots of pools with tadpoles. great way to spend a hour or two. people you meet are always friendly.

Lots of debris during monsoon season so it made it difficult to navigate paths and markers.

Great trail for beginners or seasoned hikers. Great scenery and away from the city heat of Phoenix.

nice and easy hike, safe to trail run alone as it is close to civilization. If you go to the left when you start you will enjoy a lot of shade towards the end!

Not sure I would call this trail easy. Certainly there were some flat portions of the trail. There we also a lot of steep and rocky parts to the trail. Beautiful scenic views all around the trail.

We had 3 kids all under the age of 5 and they love it! Great views and the trails are well marked.

Really enjoyed this trail. Not too hard but just right for a beginner. Great views.

A little harder than expected but a great ride in the pines. A little bit of traffic for the first mile then all alone on the trail
