I connected to this from Spur Cross. It was an ok hike through the shade. There is an old cave/mine shaft that was pretty neat. I may have given it more stars if there was water or in the spring with flowers. Bird activity is as minimal. I enjoyed Spur Cross more. But for kids or older folks this is a relatively easy trail

Just gorgeous! Saguaros, hawks, crows, trees with leaves that make beautiful music in the quiet wind.....

Ended my trek through Spur Cross on Dragonfly from the connecting Tortuga Trail. It was mostly downhill and by the time I got to the dry creek the footing was a bit rough so I went slow. The views down here were amazing! Lots of saguaros and the trees were yellow/orange along Jewel of the Creek. The rock formations were intimidating but gave the scenery a nice feel. Will return when there’s water in the creek!!

Beautiful! Flowers in bloom, a creek, and a nice little beach area. Very nice for children. Lovely views too. This is a great trail.

Many unmarked trails is my only negative comment. This is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert and feels like you have been enveloped by greenery. The trails are easy enough you do not feel as if you are climbing even though you are gaining elevation. Plenty of parking and restrooms at the start. All around great hike.

This is definitely a must hike trail if you want to just relax and enjoy being with nature. Absolutely beautiful and a great easy hike. Stop and cool your feet in the creek, sit on the hill top bench and meditate or explore the cave. Lovely!

What a beautiful hike! We started at Spur Ranch Crossing and ended with Dragonfly. Gorgeous views: saguaros,cottonwoods, lots of birds, a cave, and a creek. It was easy and the scenery was breathtaking at every turn. I highly recommend this trail.

Nice excellent hike. Very easy I typically start off with the Spur Cross part then split off to the dragonfly trail.
