This is the closest trail to home , its nice and quiet

I started up Dynamite trail and connected to SanTan to Goldmine. I suspect this is the easier way to traverse this trail, as the climb up Goldmine was on a wide section of the mountain. The way down was narrow and rocky. I will try hiking up Goldmine next time! On a Wednesday early afternoon it was quiet and I passed only a couple people, pretty nice!

I do this hike a lot. Really like it. It’s kind of an “up the mountain, down the mountain, around the mountain” loop. You could go both directions around the loop. If you go the way I go, I go UP the approximately quarter mile that is really steep. That completes the first mile out of the parking lot off of Wagon Wheel and Hunt Highway. You will be huffing and puffing after that climb but that’s the end of the hard part. After that, it’s back down the other side, not as steep as the incline, and then around the mountain, nice rolling hills and you could really trail run them. $6 cash to park though. That’s the lame part about this hike.

The beginning is rough but after the first mile it's a nice easy trail.

It gets busy on the weekends and parking is a bit of a nightmare.
