Very cool track - not too difficult but will get you working at times. Scenery is great.

Went to Spur Cross today. First time ever! Arrived at 6 am, so still reasonably cool. You park outside the gate and pay $3 inside. Free maps available, too. I had in mind to do Elephant Mountain, but I met a guard who pointed me toward Spur Cross since it was my first time there. Lo and behold, I started out on Spur Cross, but then came to Tortuga, which I knew connected to Elephant Mountain, so I turned off onto Tortuga and continued until I saw the sign marked Primitive Route. Not maintained. Use at your own risk, and knew I was getting to Elephant Mountain. I found the Elephant Mountain trail, which is a narrow footpath, barely a step wide, and headed down that trail. I didn't continue too far down the path. I was in site of the mountain, but then turned around and headed back. I will do it later. In fear of rattlesnakes, I was wearing jeans and had my trekking pole, but I didn't see or hear even one! Fun stuff. I will be back again.

beautiful trail! not too difficult, but you will break a sweat.

Really pretty hike with great landscape. Gorgeous when wildflowers are blooming and nice to see running water. We did have to share trail with horseback tour. Also beware of rattlesnakes in this area.

Beautiful desert hike, with access to the many trails in Tonto national Forest.

Love this trail. About 6 miles with great up and down, not steep. Pretty views. Have not seen a rattlesnake here yet even though down the road at Spur Cross the rattlers abound! Some hikers we ran into saw a Gila Monster today. There isn't much shade and it reached 90 today at the end of our hike at about 9:45am and I ran out of water in my Camelback about 3/4 of way through. Bring extra water and some other type of fuel.
