The main park entrance is in the Stetson Hills community near 51st Ave and Happy Valley Rd. The trail itself is nice and well cut through the desert but be aware that it can still be pretty loose in places. For an average hiker it's a very nice hike but for a beginner there are inclines that might seem a bit tough in places, especially if you head up to the summit using the Ridgeline Trail. The summit has nice overlooks where you can take some pictures and is challenging enough to be worth the effort.

Nice trail! Did it counter clockwise this time and the elevation gain wasn’t as challenging as clockwise.

This was a great trail! Very easy to follow with QR code’s located around the trail so you can see where you are located. I would definitely recommend for families and solo hikers. Just enough people on the trail to feel safe but not over crowded.

nothing spectacular in regards to views like we expected but it was a pretty easy to moderate loop, very rocky and quite busy.
