I enjoyed this hike! The trail is both well-marked and well-maintained. The trailhead is hidden a bit, but once you find it (look for the break in the fence), you’re good to go. Views are gorgeous! Watch for the crested cactus.

The Bittersweet Trail is an entrance to a complicated (but well signed) network of trails, or an out-and-back. It’s lovely though you can see streets & bear city noises much of the route.

Awesome hike in early morning. Good one to do if you haven't be out for a while.

Lovely morning hike. The best route is to go counterclockwise. Keep bearing left and it is hard to wrong. Trail changes name a couple of times but left is the way to go. Look for the crested saguaro next to the trail on the inward leg.

The hike was an easy one person wide trail. I dealt with zero traffic on the hike so that was nice. I didn't think that the signs were very well marked which ended up cutting my loop short by about a mile. I ran the trail with my dog who surprisingly didn't catch any cactus. Watch your shins for cacti and use your AllTrails app to guide you and you should be in for a good hike.

I liked the trail a lot, but the signage stinks and I think is confusing.

We had a good time. It was an easy walk. I actually didn't think it was well marked. I'd have ended up on the wrong trail without my AllTrails app guiding me.

We thought we saw a puma and a coyote but after visiting the Sonoran desert museum, realized it was probably just coati.
