Easy to follow - not my favorite segment of blackcanyon in terms of view. But well maintained and mellow walk

Decided to hike this trail for the first time that is just north of Anthem, AZ. Went out 2.5 miles before hiking back. Not sure why it is rated as moderate because it is a flat trail on sand and rocks. Perhaps it is because of the distance if one want to hike to the end. This is one of the more boring trails without much to see in terms of scenery. Just the usual desert cacti and plants. I would not want to hike this trail in the heat of the summer as there was no shade whatsoever. I was the only hiker - all the others I passed along the trail were on mountain bikes.

Very nice, mainly level hike through the desert. We went 2.3 miles out with our dog, then came back to the trailhead.. Trail is well marked and maintained.

Went about 2.5 miles which were for the most part pretty flat. Trail has a lot of rocks on it for the first mile so hiking boots would beat the cheap worn out shoes I had on my feet. Beautiful desert landscape!
