The Baseline trail is a 2.6 mile loop at Estrella Mountain Regional Park. This listing is based on access from a spur trail (33.378981, -112.371072) off of the Gila trail. Access is also available from the BA Spur Trail, the Toothacher Trail and several other spur trails. The Baseline trail is a pretty easy trail. there are some gravely sections though. If you prefer a steep climb, hike this loop counter clockwise. Other wise you will encounter a steep descent. Either way it will get your heart pumping. $6 entry fee per car.
I just moved to the area and have a one year old. I am also 9 months pregnant and this hike was perfect for me and my family. Would definitely recommend it to others because you get to see wildlife and beautiful flowers as well as beautiful views of Arizona.
loved it very peaceful
Great trail!! Enough length and enough vertical for this old man
overall great trail and great trail for the whole family
An OK trail. Steady uphill with switch backs. Not terribly difficult, but you'll definitely feel the pull in your legs. Good for adults, kids with high energy and dogs. My mastiff is geriatric, and she did ok with water and rest breaks. The rocks are beyond gravel stage and her paws became sore. Nice view at the top.
it's been so long, but i remember it being a pretty decent trail. dont remember if it was stroller friendly or not.
It is great for hiking with small children. Not too exciting but very easy and small.
The views aren't amazing, but the trails in the Estrella Mountain Park are well-maintained and well-marked. There are tons of choices for trails: short and long, steep and flat, you name it. There is a $6 day use fee or a $75 annual pass. There is a good assortment of desert flora and fauna in the park as well.
