Depending on if you adventure to the Eagle beak arch or not makes all the difference. Super tricky getting down from eagle beak peak, best to have some route finding skills. If you stay on the path that strolls through the Harquahala mountains its fairly easy.

I was looking for a trail that I hoped was less traveled on, and we found it. This trail was easy with some loose rock. Wildflowers were blooming everywhere! We only saw a few people so it definitely was nice to have the trail pretty much to ourselves. The trail is on a 4x4 trail and we did see a few of them on the eastern part of the loop. The scenic area is on the western loop, and the eastern side has a lot of garbage. But if you are looking to get your steps in, walk the entire loop. Recommend this trail as it is peaceful and quiet with landscaping views all around, plus the small arches.

Mostly easy until you reach half way point. Lots of loose rocks and uneven ground. Heck of a work out!

Going up to the Arch is great, no true path but if you aim to the left as you ascend you can pick it out, make sure to go underneath the minor arch on the way up. As someone else mentioned, there is a lot of trash in the area especially to the west of the cemetery. GOING ON THE LOOP IS A WASTE OF TIME. Its just an ATV path that circles the mountain on the west of the arch and then follows the road for a ways, nothing special or important to see and can be easily skipped.

Lots of broken glass on a very rocky trail. Tons of bugs. The trail is alright but there is no actual trail up to the arch. Since I went by myself I didn't venture off the trail up to the arch. It was nice to check it out but definitely not the greatest trail. Eh.

We went off the trail and scrambled up the back side of the mountain to reach the center of the true eagle eye. The views are worth steep scramble for sure!

We parked by cemetery and headed left on sand road which switches to a scree road. You go clockwise around mountain, then followed a dirt road to street for about 1/4 mile then climbed on the far right ATV path up a hill and aimed towards the US flag in the cemetery on the way down. The scenery could be beautiful if it wasn't of all the trash, broken bottles, bed frames and such!!
