Amazing views of Granite Mountain in the middle section of the trail.

Good trails but you have to find it from Metate parking lot. Took short route 351 & 349. 2+ mile hike not listed here.

I followed the directions here and had a hard time finding Mint Creek Trail. his sounds like a grrat hike but I am still not sure where it starts.

Nice easy trail, generally all flat.

Fun trail for horseback riding I would rate it moderate do to some rocky parts. Be sure to take a whiff of the "mint scent" at the creek.

The map as shown here is not the 345 trail. It's a combo of three different trails that equal to be a little over 5 miles. There's also a good 1.5 of almost straight uphill so make sure to bring plenty of water.

Very pleasant and easy hike. Mostly sandy trail. Trails well marked. Hiking amongst the pines with beautiful rock formations. Detoured on balancing rock trail.

Decent hike, there is a $5 day use fee here. Signage not the best.

Great trail with nice views. Some more challenging spots for the almost 6 year old and he was tired fast, and our under 10 set was very tired even with the double back at balancing rock, so I'd call this a moderate to keep short if you have a younger group of kids. Also, we saw a gopher snake; harmless and not interested in us, but I saw a black rattler in the campground the other day, so just be aware. Not a shock of you hike in AZ.

after hearing she left I had a hard time sleeping so i got up early and went to the first hike she took me on Megan this was so beautiful but compared to you it couldn't hold a candle I only wish you could have been here to share it with me wrapped up in a blanket watching the sun rise.

Very even for compared to thumb butte. Shared with horses. Nice bathrooms to change in but no water facilities. 5$ day fee. Nice parking lot. Shady. Nice climbing face on granite mountain. Will have to try it and review again.
