Great easy loop with one of a kind views of giant Quartz rock. Great Desert Scenery and make sure you take plenty of water. If you are looking for a longer but easy loop, this is an easy loop to hike inside the Cave Creek Park. Be aware that there is an entrance fee (per Car) to get into the Park. There is no water and very little shade, so make sure you go prepared.
