Trail starts at mile 204??? on Apache Trail Hwy 88 north of Apache Junction. The trail sign says this is Bulldog Canyon which it eventually runs into by Usury Mountain. This part is a very easy walk along a well marked trail. The rocks have beautiful color.

Great hike. Great for the family.

Really enjoyed this hike. Luckily we got there early and therefore there wasn’t really anybody on the trail yet. It had just rained the night before and so the weather and the views were fantastic. Clouds covered the mountains and the smell of rain filled the air. The second half of the trail got a little tricky with the rocks but nothing anybody couldn’t handle. Highly recommend!

If you plan on taking a mountain bike, only ride on the west side until the the trail starts to get rock on the north side then turn around. east side of the mountain is too rocky to ride.

Great hike. Cool views and lots of plant and cacti! Great views of the superstitions. Easy walk until about half way, then the moderate level kicks in! Loose rocks, so slippery at times. Over All great hike.

Nice trail great views... easier doing counter clockwise

This hike starts out easy the first half and finishes moderate. There is no information at the trailhead. You can easily see the trail, but be sure to take to take the left fork instead of the one that goes to the right. After a quarter mile or so you will come to a gully. Do not go into the gully. Instead take the trail that goes to the right. A little further along and you will see a trail that meets your trail from the right. Just stay left here and you'll be on the right trail the rest of the way.
The distance to the saddle is 1.4 miles. It took us about an hour, and we're pretty slow. It's a nice view looking both ways here. We turned around and headed back which took us about 45 minutes.
Nice little hike.

Unload your bike at the trailhead staging area, and rip down the Noso to make sure everything feels right. This ia just one mile but you build up a good amount of speed in the middle. Enough terrain to keep you interested, but easy enough for the kids to ride.

Great views and awesome wide-track mountain biking. Belvins is only easy going slow. For most MTBers, you'll have an awesome time riding these at full speed. Check out Cats Peak Pass while you're there for the ultimate challenge including rocky drop-offs and sandy ruts.

Great views of Goldfield and Superstition Mts. at sunset.

This hike had some awesome views but I’m not really sure if I was supposed to be on it. I climbed through a fence to get to the trail and the AllTrails App & hiking trail don’t match exactly but I was able to navigate my way through. It’s got a decent climb to get your heart pumping with a few spots where you have to watch your footing due to loose gravel. It’s also very secluded and quiet... didn’t see another soul until I was almost done. I was a little concerned being so close to the shooting range after I saw a couple bullet shells and shooting discs on the ground.

very nice views.
lots of rocks in trail. Played hide n seek with several Mule Deer!

Fun trail that leads down to the water. Great time!!!

Cactus galore. My poor pups and I were attacked by jumping cactus and stepped on probably 5. I turned around halfway.

Gave it 4 stars for all the wild horses that I was lucky enough to encounter. Nice and pretty trail besides.
I did the double and went both ways, though I somehow only clocked that to be 9.5 miles.

The trail is easy until up to the 2nd half. It’s very rocky also. Had a great time doing this hike! Also only saw about 5 other hikers. It was a really nice and quiet hike.

An actual easy hike with beautiful views

Spent the morning alone @ Bulldog Saddle which is a refreshing change from the Superstitions this time of year. The only sounds were the wind, birds, my feet, & the ice bouncing around in my hydroflask! I was kind nervous that this rocky incline was going to disappoint but it didn’t. The views at the top are amazing. This hike has a gradual incline until the end where it’s a bit more steep but not difficult. The only issue I could see people having are slipping or rolling their ankle from not being careful on the rock. There’s not really any shade either so water is a must.

My sister took us on this hike on Thanksgiving morning. Most of it is very flat along the Channel Trail but has a slight climb up the saddle between the peaks. There is a small trail that leads up the northern peak for those looking for a view. We hiked it all at my 4 yr old's pace and it took about 1.5 hours. We could see lots of mountain bikers in the park but we only crossed paths with a few of them.

Good beginner trail.

Great trail, we went clockwise for a more moderate incline making the back half a tad difficult as it is fairly steep in sections but definitely doable. I have never seen the back side of the mountain and it is excellent the entire time. Trail is in good shape. The last mile and a half gets kind of old as it is just a ton of loose gravel and we were ready to be done. however it does not discount the rest of the hike at all.

Pretty easy trail. Lots of Cholla (cactus with lots of stickers!) so this is not a trail for dogs or kids unless they are trained to stay away from the Cholla! There is parking at the intersection of McDowell and Chrismon roads if you want to skip the fee.

Nice quiet trail with breath taking views of the Salt River valley and the Superstition Mountains. This is a long trail and you will need to plan to take lots of water and maybe a snack. This trail is not well marked so a GPS would be handy if you have not hiked it before. There is a fee per car to enter the park.

Nice 5.3 mile easy hike....tricky as no “Meridian Trail” markers so use AllTrails GPS to stay on.

Great trail! We went counter-clock-wise, and were really glad we did. There are several (short) steep rocky portions that I would rather go up than come down. Great views! As others have said, there is no shade, and it is 7.7 miles. Very gradual ascent and descent, if it weren't for the length, I'd rate this as easy. Def. recommend.

This was a 7.7 mile trail from the trailhead. I would start right and end from the left. I started to the left and it was a very easy start with a hard ending. Tons of rocks on the end of the trail.
