dedinitely better suited to mountain biking than a walk. Be sure to wear actual shoes not sandals or flip-flops. We saw a lot of lizards and rabbits on the trail(s) which were pretty cool. Crismon Wash trail isn't particularly well marked but not difficult to find.

I took my kids ages 4 and 6 on this trail on their mountain bikes. This is a really nice trail for beginners wanting to get off of the beaten path a bit. My kids had so much fun we did the loop twice! It is a single track but it’s pretty wide in most places and the terrain is very manageable

Nice, easy trail for walking, horseback riding, biking, or jogging. Lots of pretty trails crossing each other that are clearly marked so you can make your outing as long or as short as you want. Great views of the nearby mountains too. Will definitely be back. The park usage fee was only $2. The only negative was the amount of jumping cholla growing really close to the trails, and in some areas hanging out into the trail.

Easy trail/trails for families and dogs. Went on a Sunday morning and there were LOTS of people/dogs/cyclists. Everyone very friendly! There are many trails to follow. We took Levee Trail to Nighthawk wash to Blevins Trail to Crismon wash to make a big loop from parking lot. There is supposed to be a $2 fee but no fee was required when we got there. Not sure if it’s because of COVID-19 or they just ran out of envelopes for people to pay? had 2 dogs, 6yo and 4yo with 4 adults and we all enjoyed it. Careful for all the cactus! Our dogs stepped on a few prickles but were fine after removal.

Not sure why it’s rated “moderate.” Is a pretty walk. Flat sandy trail. Scenic views of Superstition. Good for non-hikers, Mt. Bikers, those wanting an hour of nature walking.

My son and I went walking on this trail in late April 2018. We saw many saguaros blooming, very pretty. We accessed by Crismon, there is a $2.00 self pay charge per person to use the trail, so be sure to bring cash!

It's a great trail for biking. Because of this Hikers be careful and keep eyes peeled for bikers zooming by. Beautiful view of Superstition mountain. Nice and flat...I agree with others who say this is more like a "walk" than a hike but still great. I'll try going in the morning next time in hopes that there aren't as many bikers out.

Great trail running system. Plenty of undelations but not a lot of overall elevation change.

This is as basic as it gets. Just a walk - not hiking. Great for young kids and older "city folk visiting" town.

Loose gravel, lots of cactus of the trail, which wasn't fun for the dog's feet. The loose gravel made hiking slower than normal. Not much to see.

I loved this trail. It is more of a walk than a hike. The dirt is loose since you're in the wash, so you get a decent workout. It is so beautiful here. We saw doves, lizards, chipmunks, quail and two owls.....amazing! Tons of cactus and some were in bloom.

great for mountain biking, lots of huge cholla cacti so watch out for fallen thorn clumps definitely quiet and gives you a sense of wilderness while still being easily accessible and close to town. Lots of crisscrossing paths make it easy to customize how long our short an endeavour you wish to make. Pretty easy going for the most part definitely fun and worth checking out.
