Nice place to run, with many different trails. I can see this place satisfying a various number of different type of trail runners/joggers and enthusiasts. As well as some bikers and the hikers. “Great view from a top the middle of the rocks.”

This is a moderate hike IF you take some off shoots from the loop trail... otherwise it’s super tame. We made what we wanted out of it, took some uphill climbs, a little bouldering, etc. Looked like a great place for mountain biking... again you could make it as difficult or Easy as you wanted. Pretty simple to stay on the trail with the app.

The trail is very fun and kid friendly. We (mom and her two elementary age kiddos) climbed to the top of one of the buttes (there are several). At the top was a great view! The climb was pretty rocky, with loose rocks. It’s a little bit of a challenge to get up and down, but who doesn’t like a little challenge? The trail is good for going on a walk and breathing in fresh air.

Not a very exciting trail. Very easy. There is a lot of road noise and it’s right next to the golf course, as well as the airport and national guard, so it’s not a peaceful area. It’s nice to be able to get outside and off the pavement though. This would be good for kids or people who need easy terrain. There are lots of trails, official and otherwise, so it’s not clear if you are on the actual trail or not, but it’s all connected and the trails are all very visible so it would be difficult to get lost.

Very pleasant walk with nice views of the red rock Buttes as well as the Papago golf course. The trail is not very well marked so we ended up making up our own route including adding a bit of elevation. We spent about 1.5 hours of leisurely wandering the trails. Be aware there is no bathroom at the trailhead and very little privacy for a pit stop! Would recommend if you don’t have to drive too far- we enjoyed it more than we thought

Most of it is relatively flat and smooth. Nice views of down town Phoenix & Tempe as well as the Papago Mountains. Lots of people out including families with small children. Definitely a city park . Very accessible & lots of noise from air planes & cars.

I am asthmatic, so the ease of this trail enables me to enjoy the views on my own and enjoy the sunrise!

Great trail if you’re looking to go for a short run or a short hike to get some fresh air. Essentially no incline and easy to follow.
