From a somewhat novice, but enthusiastic hiker:

The driving directions provided took me right to the start of the trail on the map. I thought it was a very pretty hike overall. I have no sense of direction, so I made sure my phone was charged, so I could stick to the map. The GPS totally ate up my battery...started out at 85% and by the time I hit the spot where you move from Corral’s to Bob’s trail, my battery was down to 10%. It was a little confusing which sign went to which trail at that point and I ended up having to backtrack a bit. Not going to lie...I was a little terrified at that point and felt like I was out in the middle of nowhere...luckily, I very kind couple, who knew the trail system well looked at my map for me and told me that I was, indeed, now on Bob’s Trail, which would end at a culdesac in a subdivision. Highlands trail starts there and if I took that trail and stayed left at every opportunity, I should make it back to my starting point on the map. It almost worked...following those directions, I was almost murdered by a mountain biker, traversed up a slightly heartbreaking zigzag of trail up to the top of a ridge (which seemed never-ending enough, that it caused me to start rationing the trail mix), where I could finally see the parking lot where my car was, but could not figure out how to get to it...so I hiked down to the parking for another trailhead and hiked up/down Bogus Basin Road to the lot where my car was parked...very pretty, nice hike...slightly heartbreaking at the end....glad I wore waterproof hiking boots...would’ve twisted my ankle a few times had I not worn mids and had to cross a stream somewhere around 6 times. The climbs are not as steep as Table Rock...

Beautiful scenery, within walking distance of our Airbnb. Perfect hike for a beginner from Louisiana!

Great loop, some good vertical. A fairly heavily trafficked loop. I started at Bobs trail and then did Corrals and Highland.

map not accurate....not a loop had to retrace steps ended up being an 18 mile horse back ride PHEW! When you come to the rock pile on the ridge turn back! pretty ride though

This ones a tuffie!

This trail was pretty cool...I prefer more trees but for a high desert trail it's nice! there's water along the way which is nice break. Theres a few decent inclines and some nice views along the way. Trailhead is easy to find with plenty of parking (during a week morning at least lol)

Has a little bit of everything. Good climbs through the hills, fun descents, and some slightly tricky rocky sections. Challenging, but not too difficult. So much fun!

Great trail!

On the difficult end of moderate--a great hilly hike. The trail head is off Bogus Basin road, not at all where pinned. Keep your eyes peeled to the right as you drive up Bogus Basin and you'll see the trailhead parking lot.

It's a good hiking trail. But where it's pinned on the map and where the trailhead is actually is located is not even close

We took multiple loops throughout the hills, and I liked that there were so many trails to choose from. There was only one spot that I thought had an amazing view and overall it was kind of monotonous and pretty easy. Small hills with dirt and sage. Very family friendly and good for a quick hike, nothing spectacular.
