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.

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.

Beautiful hike with moderate incline and well set path. Pay close attention to the signs to stay on the right trail!

Great views and beautiful weather

Good distance, took 5 of us (3 kids) 2 hours. Somewhat difficult without being hard. Hot even in December. Pretty views. Trail is well marked. $6 entry/car. Saw no other hikers.

Excellent hike

Very long trail hike. Be prepared. Not too difficult. accidentally did this long hike we meant to cut up dysart trail. It was nice we started around 8. It is still a little hot in DECEMBER

It was a bust

Pretty boring but good for passing time or talking to friends. Lots of fun critters to spot, just not my usual type of hike.

nice easy hike. moderate inclines/declines. highest elevation was about 1180ft above sea level so not to crazy. good views of Goodyear and the Estrella Mountains. nothing over exciting with the views but still good landscapes. be aware this 'loop' uses 3 different trails to complete the loop. start on rainbow then take a left on Dysart trail and another left once you get to toothoker trail to head back.

Great trail to view the wildflowers in the Spring. In early Mach the hills are blanked in yellow and white flowers, in late March the Cactus come alive.

Take the Rainbow Valley trail to the Dysart trail to the Toot-something trail to have a nice moderate 4.6 mile loop hike.

It says it's a 6.6 mile hike when in turn it was 8 miles. If you are looking for something serene and peaceful I wouldn't bother as you could hear the traffic from Estella Parkway.

Love it. So quiet. So clean. Nice workout. Will continue to visit this spot.

Beautiful day hiking this trail. Best hiking weather today. Desert wild flowers were in bloom everywhere.

Pretty long. Very little people on trail. goes to highest elevation in the park.

Nice loop. It took about 2 1/2 hours. Very serene. I did not see one other person.

Loved the trail. Do not take the dysart cut off. You will miss the beautiful part of the trail

Great loop trail in Estrella Mountain Regional Park. Mostly flat, but there are a few places where you traverse some washes. Also there is a decent ascent about half way through the hike giving some nice views of the area. This elevation gain is what makes this a moderate rated hike. This trail will be filled with wildflowers in the spring!
