Nice trail, excellent views. Pretty moderate I would say, but there are other trails connecting that provide a decent workout.

Absolutely beautiful views! I love the twists and turns in the trail. It’s a pretty easy hike with barely any incline. Good for the whole family. Probably my favorite hike in this area!

I would recommend doing the goldmine trail instead of this one! They’re at the same trailhead but the beginning of this one is very flat and boring! Even at the top the views weren’t too impressive.

Very pretty trail! Great vista views of surrounding mountains and towns. Hiked/ran this on a Friday- not much trail traffic. Very quiet. Easy trail. Hiked with my teen sons. Next time I would bring my dog.

Good hike with great views. The Goldmine hill is a little challenging and gets the heart pumping for older hikers. I like to start on this trail and finish on the dynamite trail.

Fun hike. Moderate to start going clockwise.

My go-to for a easy/moderate hike in the southeast valley. Parking lot is small and gets full early and quickly in the summer. Required day use fee (self pay with envelopes at the trailhead); check Maricopa County Parks for current fee. Two port-a-potty in the lot. Some parking areas along the main entrance road, but you will be ticketed for parking in a No Parking area. Well used multi-use single track trail with a fair mix of mountain bikers and pedestrians. Although the trails are open to equestrian I haven't seen any on this trail during my visits. I routinely take my dog and see others with theirs.

Great for a hike with kids or for a quick last minute evening hike. The trial is always in good shape.

not to bad. a lot of dogs and some dog poop in the ground. some parts the trail narrows and you have to move out of the way for the people on bikes.

Easy trail with one sort steep climb. Well marked trail with benches here and there to rest or take in the views.

Fun hike, we go clockwise and get the steep climb out of the way first. Several benches along the well marked trail to sit on and enjoy the views.

Did this hike on national hiking day, so I assume there was more traffic than normal. San Tan is a enjoyable place to visit, a nice mixture of terrain and views. Goldmine trail has some nice views and on a clear day you can see downtown Phoenix.

Fun hike. Great Views with some steep inclines!

Gorgeous views and clearly marked trails. Great Hike.

Challenging first accent but the views from the top are worth it

Lots of gradual incline. Fun trail!

Super simple and nice walk. I’m very large and working to get in shape and this was no problem. Beautiful out. Did the trail with 9 year old, 7 year old and Lab.

Did this loop with my wife and friends who are not big hikers and they did great. The way we went was definitely best because you climb the steepest, roughest, loose parts close to the beginning (Goldmine) and then have a nice hike around the backside of the mountain back to the parking lot. It gets hot so we were glad we went early.

Easy and pretty trail. Great for kids and dogs.

Easy run on a nice trail. My 6 year old hiked it with no problem as well.

Good trail and perfect weather make a great family trip.

Lots of great views. Not to difficult but there is loose stone. Watch your step

Great trail
Good workout

Very easy trail for my 7 year old and I.

Great Morning 9-11 am Hike with Enas, 3rd time for me! Heat kicked our butts but prepared with plenty of water and snacks, Good Time! $7.00 self pay/bathrooms...

I’ve done this hike several times. If you go clockwise, the hike up is pretty darn difficult. View at the top is worth it! A few benches sprinkled around the trail make this a great hike. If you go early enough, you’ll have shade for at least 1/2 the hike. Don’t go later in the day when it’s hot...on the other side of the mountain it gets EXTREMELY hot and there is no shade...heat stroke is a good possibility! Go early, and enjoy it! One time we started at 9:00am in late August, and it was a very bad decision. Have taken large youth groups on this hike, and it’s doable for everyone!
There are lots of mountain bikers, particularly on a Saturday. Everyone is kind and shares the trail. Parking fills up very quickly at Wagon Wheel entrance, and costs $7.

Trails were a little rocky not the best for any sort of running shoes. Good views. $7.00 fee to enter park.

Dynamite Horse Trail was a nice hike with lots of runners, hikers and mountain bikers. I went with my little dog (16lbs) and my medium dog (46lbs) and they both did well. There were a few steep areas that got our blood pumping so we will definitely go again!

Great family hike. Has some elevation gain but is an easy starter hike.
