Connected to this trail from another trail at San Tan to make it an over all 6 mile hike. Really liked it but not too difficult. Take some water. It gets hot.

I really enjoyed this trail. Not too tough and offers some good views at the summit. Also connects to other trails to extend the hike.

Nice easy trail good for dogs, great for a beginner or runner. If I was mountain biking I'd probably rate it higher. Good contrasting view of city and nature at the top/end. Liked that you can continue onto other trails if you want to which can make it more of a challenge. It's a bit busier with a lot of bikes and you pay via pay box if you don't have a park pass.

This was a fairly easy trail and super fun! Would recommend a lot of water if you go on a hot day!

Map on site not correct (if we followed what was there we would have gone on Gold Mine trail which is extremely difficult and steep). Liked the hike however surprised that it was an incline all the way until we decided to turn around (1.7 miles into the hike)

Very nice trail. Well maintained. It wasn't challenging so I could take my mother with me but was still a good walk we could both enjoy. The desert was blooming with beautiful flowers. There are other trails that connect to this trail if you want to extend and do more. Mountain bikers and hikers can share the trail easily, and everyone was very friendly along the hike.

Should say you can only hike if you pay the $6 fee.
