This loop is a blast to run. 90% of the trail is smooth and very runnable with just a few rocky and technical spots where you have to slow down so you don't tweak an ankle. There are some great views of Red Mountain and the Salt River. Run the trail counter-clockwise so that you get most of the climbing out of the way and leave yourself with a nice downhill for much of the last 3 miles, especially the Saguaro trail portion that is part of the Maricopa Trail is very smooth and fast. The Ridge trail part of this has some really nice views and it's fun running on the ridge with the drop off on the one side. I have run this loop several times and will keep going back. You will see a few other people out there, especially MTB'ers but just pay attention and everyone is usually courteous and friendly.

Great hike, beautiful day. Trail markings are somewhat misleading so it's important to review map often!

I'm a beginner rider and wasn't too bad. I'm definitely going to be back.
