Short, flat, and fairly unspectacular, except for the views of the Superstitions.

Decent hike with nice views, just too flat for my liking.

The trail is a nice walk at sunset, not very challenging and perfect for kids to come along. There is an awesome firepit at the trailhead with a great view...

I didn’t realize most of this hike/trail was a wash but it’s a good little hike for little dogs. Lots of mountain bikers and tons of Cholla to watch for!

Nice trail but a bit too flat and generic to get 4 stars from me.

More of a walk than a “hike”. I gave it 4 stars because it seems great for small kids (if you keep all the thorny things in mind), and because I liked the layout. The rocks completely lining the trail gave it a different feel than most trails in the area.

This trail takes you right through the Merkle Memorial Trail. (The Merkle Trail is a loop, and this one bisects it ). A nice climb with lots of beautiful views of the surrounding area. There are parts that are a little challenging. If you have never hiked a moderate level trail before, this would be an excellent one to go on. Obviously, take water even though it is short. You will want to stop and take breaks to see the numerous vistas. At the end of the trail, you will have to turn right or left to finish your hike back to your vehicle via the Merkle Trail.

Easy trail. Wide with good gravel. Nice views. Children would enjoy. It’s a loop with good signs.

Good trail, not too long. So many cactuses, I haven’t made it through without the pups getting one stuck in their paw, but otherwise good. Also the price went up to $7 to enter the park.

Decent trail, just stay away from the Signal Wash which runs parallel with the Spillway Trail and is much too sandy.

Saw my first Saguaro blossoms on this beautiful trail today! The desert was once again gorgeous on this hike. Seemed like everything was purposely planted or placed in its spot. Great views of Superstition Mtns. Can’t wait to have hubby ride his bike thru here this weekend while I walk the dog!

Super Rocky terrain so if you have weak ankles or small children I suggest skipping this hike. We did see a snake and other wildlife. The views at the end were beautiful.

Nice hike! Easy to Moderate Hike for me, enjoyed the landscape and friendly peeps as I was a little nervous as no markers on the trail. Saw a few lizards & vultures. Good Times :)

Nice easy, sandy trail with no steep embankments. Mostly flat with a tiny incline in places. Pretty cactus - no wildflowers this year. Well marked.

Such a beautiful park. Blevins trail is very manicured and very well marked. It's a very easy trail. I can't wait to go again and explore more trails.

Great for the young and old, very flat and well maintained. Can easily bring a stroller or the like.

Good practice for kids that can handle the trail not being completely flat.

Might be better on a horse, more sandy than a beach.

on Bulldog Saddle Trail

A nice hike with some rocky spots. This saddle hike is not to be confused with the Pass Mtn hike saddle which is close to it. You can hike down the other side of the saddle and come back up through the Pass Mtn saddle to make a loop.

Nice hike once u get to the mountain . Pretty much a walk in the park for the first half mile. I actually went alone and got lost because to me the trail went in to a wash and I ended up doing bulldog saddle and returned to mediation trail. I ran out of water because my trip was only supposed to be easy-going and then when I got lost I had to ask people for water unfortunately no one had water to spare until I had to retrace my step because I lost my keys but, I was safe and still looking for my keys .

Nice easy trail.

Fun hike! We wanted a nice little hike before dinner with my 2 and 4 year old grandsons and it was perfect! We ended up doing the Vista Trail part of it and that was a little more climbing and slippery coming down but still very doable with the kids!
