love hiking the trails out here connected the Overton to the Go John today getting a little bit more mileage.

Great trail. Once you get past the horse shit it is a fantastic trail. Great for a dog!

Low traffic and beautiful scenery...one of our favorites!!

easy hike, only thing to rate it as moderately is its length.

Moderate hike...not too intense but a nice workout. Did the Overton trail loop. Beautiful!!

It is more of an easy trail rather then Moderate. great views but had to share the trail with horses and Mountain Bike riders which was not an ideal situation,
The trail is very well marked and the entire park is gorgeous, so it's worth one trip.

Great trail, good mix of up and downhill. Trail is well marked and maintained.

Great hike. Beautiful views! On the easy side of moderate. I would definitely recommend it.

Went counter-clockwise. Great hike up the hill out of the valley and nice easy descent. Had the place to ourselves early on a weekday. Highly recommended.

Great trail. Easy side of moderate, lots of ups and downs. We went in the early morning, and there's a good deal of shade to rest and take it all in. We went clockwise. Although there is a $7 fee to get into the park, if you go to the visitor center, you can get a 3-pass or a 5-pass that takes the cost down to $5 per visit. We will be doing this trail again. This is our favorite trail so far in the area, but I would rate it to be a very easy side of "moderate" compared to some other moderate hikes we have done across the country.

I started at the switchback trailhead. Took me 2hrs 15 mins for the full loop. Beautiful country. Moderate difficulty. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful hike with awesome views, I would consider this hike closer to easy in intensity. It was also heavily trafficked at times with many being novice hikers.

Nice trail for walking, not a lot of loose rocks. Enough climbs to get the heart going.

Really good hike and I would say it is moderate. You get the up hill part done first, so that's nice. There are really great views for being in Phoenix. I would definitely go again.

one of my favorites. it is a Maricopa county maintained trail, and there is a small fee to enter.
like any desert trail, be wear of snakes, bring water, and know your limitations.
the views are fantastic, and you might get to see some wild life.
be safe, and enjoy.

I decided to go clockwise starting at the Slate trailhead, then heading north on the Jasper Trail to the Go John Trail and finishing up on the Quartz and Slate trails. Started at mid-morning when it already was hot. There is no shade so bring plenty of water. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. It is impossible to inadvertently go off-trail. Nice scenery along the way, except for the Slate Trail which is kind of boring. Admission fee to the park is now $7.

The perfect scenic trail. Never crowded so you get the place to yourself.

Great loop for kids.

great trail! a lot of variety, well marked, clear paths. Lots to see! The Quartz rocks are beautiful. A little bit of shade along the way. I started at Go John then took the Quartz trail to Slate trail and back to the parking areas, which took a little over an hour. a little bit of incline the first half, then the second half is mostly decline or flat. went on a Saturday and think I saw a total of 4 or 5 people on that trail. pushed back far enough from main roads that it really does feel desolate and peaceful. there is a $6 day pass fee, but definitely worth it!

Trail is well maintained. Moderate due to distance but no strenuous sections. Exposed so bring water if doing summer or midday.

Nice views and well maintained trails. Wish it would have had mike markers. Otherwise great hike!
