Beautiful with the wildflowers blooming! The trails are well signed and easy to follow, except for the Gila trail. You'll need to keep your eye out for this steep path. We also made a side trip to visit the ruins of Lost Ranch. This only adds maybe a mile. Worth it.

Located at in a good area Friendly Hikers Moderate Trail is accurate Views were nice Avg time to complete (2.5 hours) Runner friendly (partially) Trail is not completely visible because there are more than one (use this app and you will have no issue at all) Would I do it again... Yes!

The Gila trail was not clearly marked on the South Mountain Preserve site map so my group decided to wing it. We followed the Bursera Trail west for about 2.5 miles with it seeing any obvious trail forks. It was when we decided to turn back we saw what we can only assume was the Gila trail, but that's still unknown. This landscape is barren, even for a dessert. The landscape lacked color and the views were boring. For the agony it took to climb the trail there was no payoff.
