The trail is very nice but there are lots of bikers. Definitely do not go on a Sunday.

Took my gf for her first MTB exp. Awesome place for it and fun trails to role down. Biffed it hard doing doing a jump... No regrets. Wear gloves. Will be back for a rematch.

Well marked and provided facilities (at the entrance/starting point). So many different options to add on more mileage as there are many intersecting trails. Day after Thanksgiving so it was pretty busy. Many groups of mountain bikers on the trail.

This is a quick hit trail that you’ll likely be sharing with mountain bikers, so keep your eyes peeled and ears perked up. Not much elevation and not rocky — a little sandy in some patches.

Started at 7 with sun behind light clouds. Temp was perfect. About. 8:15 the clouds burned off and it got hot. I had my camelback with me so no worries but I was glad to get back to the trailhead. The trail is really a nice mix of up and down and desert beauty. I would rate it easy myself.

Lovely EASY trail. Took to end of Chuckwagon and went to Balanced Rock. Round trip: 6.4. Gave it 4 stars because some of Trail follows power lines.

nice walk but would have to categorize as easy. Light traffic, the further you go the more peace.. No shade or water. Not buggy at all.

First time for me. I really enjoyed the park and trail. I need to be in better shape. Light traffic on the trail. Forgot to start recording at the trailhead.

First part of hike is heavily traveled with people and bikes. Power lines detract from views. After power lines, the desert vegetation and views are lovely, with way less people. We hiked Balanced Rock and Granite Loop also. Other visitors reported seeing rattlers.

First to Review

Well kept trail with few rocky areas. Trail is easy to follow with numerous signs. It offers great views of the surrounding mountains and variety of desert plants.
