A great and well marked trail that took us about 2.5 hours to complete with a few breaks to hydrate. We started at the park trail head (West) at 6 am. A lot of beautiful desert scenery on this moderate-easy trail including a view of I-17 and the CAP canal.

Loved this hike! So many different types of scenery. Nice that there was water about half way through to refill our bottles.

Love doing this hike before work and see the sun rise from the top! Easy up but don’t think it’s well marked.

This is one of my regular hikes. There are crowds on the weekend, but during the week if I have a chance I love this trail. It is well maintained and a good workout. It's also great for trail running. Bring your dog, but keep an eye out for chuckwallas, and snakes.

Got smoked on this trail! SUCH a good workout no matter which trail you take. I’ve mixed it up quite a bit and have gotten really warped! Good times. Be sure to bring a snack or two if you plan on staying for the longer hikes. I definitely got hungry and was desperate for energy.

Nice long hike. Feels like you’re further out in the wilderness than you actually are. We did see a very large Coyote. But we just hung back until he moved on.

I'm still exploring, but this is my favorite trail to run in the area so far. Great distance, good elevation, plenty of small trails to add on, and beautiful scenery.

Took us about 2 hours to finish this at a more fast pace with short stops. Started 7:15am, ended 9:35am. I brought snacks but I feel I could have just left them in the car. Of course, water is always needed. Saw maybe 5 people there but looked to get more busy around 9am. I'll most likely come back when I need a quick trail to do close by.

Been wanting to try this trail for awhile. Very limited parking at trail head, but not an issue at 8:45 am this Tuesday. I didn't experience any challenges until at least the halfway point when the inclines became more frequent. I'd classify my hiking ability at about intermediate but at a casual pace, so for me, being somewhat out of shape, I found I needed to take short breaks after some of the climbs. Decent workout but personally I found the trail itself and the views quite boring.

Extremely well marked, easy to moderate path. It's a 9.5 km loop which we did easily in 2 hours. If you are a trail runner it would be a good one to run.
The view wasn't as nice as some of the other hikes we did this week.

Great hiking trails and so so for mountain biking. I've done both here and I think they are better left for the hiker and trail runner. Just remember that if you are going to use this trail for biking, to use trail etiquette and give horses and hikers the right of way.

Great place with so many different trails

I really liked this hike. When I went there were very few people out so it was nice and quiet and secluded. Not much of an elevation gain and the views are just okay, but worth it for the seclusion. My 10 yr old pup did really great with this trail too.

Less rocky than Thunderbird. Nice trail variations.

Relatively long and lots of ups and downs. Lots of commutation and permutations as there are short trails within the trail
