Hiked it with my 4yr old daughter until we found “Turtle Rock” pretty easy trail with some pretty scenery!

I enjoyed this trail, took it up and connected to the scout cave trail. Really cool views for being a trail so close to town.

Only saw 2 other hikers on this easy 4 mile hike in January, with beautiful 60 degree weather! Pros: fun combination of rock and gravel and dirt path, excellent views, option to climb the big rocks overlooking St George. Cons: east end of trail is scattered with broken glass, tiny pieces, and although you mostly don’t see the traffic on Red Hills Parkway you can hear it the whole way. Sure beats neighborhood walking though!

Went with a couple of friends we all brought our dogs. It went great was easy and fun

Really neat. Easy hike. Beautiful views. Ancient History. According to the evidence, the Ancient Natives were riding dinosaurs. Check it out!

Nice area for some easy hiking amid beautiful scenery. It feels remote in places even though the highway is just over the hill and in spite of being able to hear traffic. You can connect this trail with Beck Hill, Gila, Paradise Rim and Turtle Wall trails to provide a variety of options for loop hikes and varying distance. We spent 3 hours in here wandering around and taking photographs. Nothing strenuous about these trails; suitable for anyone who can walk on sandy or rocky paths.

I clocked it at 1.9 miles beautiful scenery plan on one and a half to two hours it is a steep climb and not for dogs or children great place for a picnic at the top beautiful views

Great hike with incredible views! Loved it! I disagree with the distance listed here and sadly I didn’t track it on our hike yesterday. This page has it as an Easy 1.6 round trip, but I think it’s more of a Moderate 4-4.5.

A fun little hike with family. Beautiful red rock views and several natural climbing walls along the trail.

Decent trail... I could do without riding through the sand. The Turtle wall section is better, and more scenic.

Cool trail, lots of cool rock formations. A mix of sand, technical obstacles, climbing, and slick rock riding.
I joined up to castle rock via the Grapevine, and prospector trails.

Really loved this hike! Doesn’t look like much at the trailhead but it gets really beautiful! Great hike for a family and pet friendly.

An easy and great hike. I took my 3 year old and she managed to walk the entire thing without too much trouble. Watch out for coyote poop on the trail.

Great hike. Not a great starting location on this particular map. Google had me park in the middle of a neighborhood & follow a trail in between houses. Once on the actual trail it was beautiful. Will definitely be doing this hike again but starting from another location.

Nice little 4 miler. Walking in loose sand is always a good workout. Perfect amount of elevation & rocks.

Park at the Pioneer Hills trailhead. We crossed the highway & walked trail backwards from what’s marked here. Walked back on paved bike trail. Could’ve started a half hour sooner to beat more heat but was a great hike.

The trail is poorly marked, which makes following it accurately a challenge, especially at night. Also, a bit close to civilization for me. I enjoy a trail where sirens and cars driving by cannot be heard. On the plus side, it's quick to get to, and isn't too long. The view isn't half bad either.

It’s nice hike.. I was thinking of riding my
Mountain bike there but couldn’t find a way to get there with my mountain bike. The chuckwalla trail doesn’t allow mountain bikes and I think halfway wash as well.. so idk

The trailhead was hard to find because a new neighborhood is being developed and we had to drive through a construction site to reach it. The hike was interesting and different. Definitely don’t regret hiking it once. One thing I didn’t like about the hike is that it didn’t lead to a final destination of a scenic area. It simply led to a dirt road.

Great hike to do with kids. We did the Chuckwalla connecting to Turtle Wall. The kids loved the climbing/bouldering opportunities! Very wide defined trail. Definetely will do again for the "natural playground"!
