We took a shorter route which was good today. This was a well marked and easy trail to hike. We did have GPS which is always nice to have. Only used the GPS when we were taking the short cut. As it gets warmer, getting an earlier start would be ideal. Will be back later for the full hike. Some of the hiking trails were beautiful with Buena vista views.

Nice trail! Close to downtown pinetop. Very well marked. Went counterclockwise about 3 miles and then turned around, beautiful views and only saw 1 other person the whole hike. Gradual up and down, nothing to steep. Great way to spend a few hours in the trees!

Nice little hike through the woods. My favorite part was looking out into the beautiful meadow about 2/3 of the way.

Good quick hike but poorly marked at times. I kept my GPS on to make it for the full loop. Good views once you get past the trees. But kinda eerie at times alone Will do it again with a friend ☀️

The weather and water were fantastic. Great trail.

Perfect for the whole family!

Tough climb for end of long run. Loose rocks on much of the trail.

Amazing loop hike! This place feels like out of AZ with so much greenery.

It was a fun quick hike BUT Scotts Reservoir is empty. I hate to see such a beautiful area like this falling apart. If and when the lake gets filled up I would change my opinion. All in all it is a great day hike for all ages

Beautiful hiking around the lake.

No water but beautiful views and a great training trail.

This is a great training trail. Lots of moderate climbing, a couple of technical sections and a bit of zippy descending.

Not bad...Trail is not well marked and with many intersecting mountain bike trails and roads. Good cell service will allow you to check your position using GPS. Pay attention or you may find yourself on a longer hike than you had planned for!

Easy trail for kids. I have a 17, 15, 14, 11 and 9 year old.

Easy and pretty

This was a nice little hike that we took the first part of February on a beautiful day. We didn’t realize that it was primarily a horse trail, which is fine, however the trail was beat up pretty bad and it was extremely muddy which made it difficult to walk and maneuver around the trail, which sometimes took us off the trail little bit to try to avoid the mud. It may be a better hike during the summer months perhaps, but it was still a nice hike.

I completed the hike with my two dogs and they had a blast. The scenery was bueatyful, and the hike was challenging enough to be a good workout. Can be muddy in parts of the trail.

Second time I made the trip. Absolutely breathtaking views from the Rim.
Beautiful. If you stay on the blue diamond trail then it’s not very difficult. A few areas of the trail have trees blocking and require traversing but otherwise pretty easy.

Moderate hike with great views of Woods Canyon Lake throughout the entire hike.

Took a group of kids age 5-14. Hike was more of a walk, not strenuous, and the kids had a great time playing on the frozen creek.

Beautiful in the fall. All the leaves were red and yellow. Pretty good incline halfway through

Beautiful trail! Last mile kicked my butt!

Trail was well marked, a little rocky at some parts and a little over grown past the ice cave.

The trail is not as labeled as other trails in pinetop. The only map we seen was at the start, but the scenery is so grateful and beautiful that you cant help to go off the trail and actually explore. You can follow the stream or climbing the mountain on the other side of the stream. If you get lost 3/4 of the trail is surrounded by houses or roads eventually you'll hit a house or road.

We took the trail backwards...in the order that we did it, the scenery looked the same through 3/4 of the trail. All the scenic parts were towards the end, so it was a nice way to see it. Good trail to take with kids that are a little older (10+).

I dont know that I would bring my kids on this hike as parts of it were quite difficult and only part of the trail was marked with the blue diamonds. Otherwise its a beautiful location and was lots of fun!

this trail was safe interesting !!!

Enjoyable autumn hike. Although there were quite a few people at the lake fishing, we didn’t see many people on Trail.
