If you want to do some hiking at Picacho Peak but, you're not ready to do that vertical climb up Hunter Trail, Calloway Trail is a nice and easy way to experience this beautiful park. The trail itself is well maintained, but a little rocky in places. The trailhead for Calloway and Hunter start at the same place. There is parking for about 20 cars, and room for more at the lower parking lot.

Wow. Not long in distance but great elevation changes. Fun but you should be comfortable with heights.

Great hike, nice views of the mountains. A little harder than easy for these 68 year old knees. Maybe it's easy if you're over 5'4".Lots of stairs and boulders. Good work out.

The website classifies Calloway as “easy”. The sign at the trail head says “moderate”. Consider the sign. Beautiful hike!

Nice little family hike if you want to stretch your legs between Phoenix and Tucson. We did it as our dessert after first hiking Picacho Peak.

We practically had the trail to ourselves (only 3 other hikers on our way out). It was a nice hike, beautiful weather & views throughout the whole trail.

This is a short moderate hike with a beautiful view at the top. Not heavily trafficked. One of my favorite short hikes. Great at sunrise.

It was a great trail to hike. I brought my 4 and 8 year old and they did it with no issues. It was hot though, and there were a lot of bugs. I recommend doing the hike early in the morning before it gets hot. But pretty neat views at the top. We couldn’t stay at the top for long because there were lots of bugs and some bees and my kids freaked out. So we turned right back around. But there’s a train off in the distance and my kids got a kick out of it.

This is a pretty rocky Trail. I would definitely rate this as moderate. Nonetheless, it was rewarding. The lookout is nothing more than a bench at the end of the trail looking out towards the highway, but that’s okay. Lots of birds.

This is a pretty hike, short and easy but a bit rocky. Can connect to the nature trail for more distance.

I am a beginner and love this trail. It has a few places of incline, but overall pretty easy. It wraps around the mountain and leads to a nice little overlook with a bench.

Brought my tripawd pup to do this trail. Hike was great to get back into hiking. Not too hard and just the right amount of challenge. We got to see the wildflowers and great views! Not a long hike so if you want more head back down and do the Nature Trail.

Great hike to saddle at the base of Picacho Peak. Rated as moderate but its more 1/2 way between easy and moderate. Beautiful flora in spring!!
