Good trail of you like desert scenery. It leads you behind a mountain and you lose sight of the city. It's a nice change.

Easy but a nice walk and good views

Great, yet simple trail. Offers some great views of downtown Phoenix and the surrounding ranges. I definitely took a moment here and there to take in the views. The weather was perfect the day I hiked it in late November, but this is not a shaded trail by any means. Minimal effort for the experienced hiker, but was still fun and worth it. I did hike it counterclockwise to help with the elevation gains. If you go right instead of left at the entrance of the trail, there is a small bench that offers some great views. $7 to enter, I might do this trail again.

Boring but good beginning hike for dog

Great warm down after a big hike! Definitely a bobcat in the area based upon traces found at regular points along the trail.

Nice afternoon walk

Best loop at Estrella hands down! Really tests your skills at the beginning to mid section, fun downhill afterwards. If you want to get your ass ripped and balls licked, definitely try this loop!!

Good Hike. a lot of rocks on trail due to the rain but still manageable. good quick workout

Not much of a hike or very interesting in the summer. If there had been water in the riverbed, it would have been a lot more interesting.

I enjoyed the most peaceful and serene moment of my week hiking the Dysart trail starting at Coldwater and returning through Butterfield.
It's moderate on the easy side, there were very few people, mostly bikers.
Being the end of April with the desert in bloom, there were quite a few bees buzzing around the mesquite trees but I wasn't bothered.

Walked it today, but stretched it to a 3.5 mile hike. Ages ranged 10 to 71, some were novices, but it was good. this is the 6th or 6th time for me.

Nice trail. Pretty easy. I would say 5 miles though.

Good trail! I’d say easy to moderate though. Had some steep inclines and a few washes- great for beginners.

Hiked this trail last week with my sisters. We are all in our 50's and this was a great hike. Some sections were steep but it wasn't too hard. There was a lot of horse poop on the trail. We parked our car and walked up the Baseline Spur Trail (which was fairly steep) to the Baseline Trail. Wonderful views. Round trip from our car was about 3 1/2 miles.

Well, gravel-paved and maintained .5 mile loop. Brought my baby in his stroller with no issues. Confused about the mentioned "cave." There were some hollows in a wash but didn't look at them up close because they were off trail. It was a good nature walk with signs marking the natural plants and info about the area. There's also benches along the way including one with shade about half way.

the trail was amazing nice scenery and a good workout

I like this hike to get in mileage. Not particularly challenging but some good ups and downs. It is fairly challenging for a mountain bike in my opinion since I am not the best mountain biker out there ;)

Be on the lookout for horse droppings! Nice trail wide and smooth enough in most portions to run if you’d like.

A moderate hike, not too many hills but my GPS showed us hiking 4.9 miles, not 3.9.
