6.1 miles became 11.3 miles, I got lost not an easy trail to follow could be marked better, ended back tracking. Good views, mostly mountain bikers on trails.

Trailhead is somewhat hidden, but once on the trail, all trails are clearly marked. Challenging and interesting.

Nice hike, moderate. First timers require GPS. Trail get confusing at times.

This was a very poorly marked trail system. Ended up doing an out and back because we didn't look at this app until after our run. Got lost on different side trails that lead to streets trying to find our way. Ended up doing 8miles in the hot sun. We assumed you stayed on the same trail name, not switching to multiple trails to form this loop. The map at the beginning of the trail head was very unclear also. Would have had a better experience using this app, going earlier in the morning and bringing more water than we had. No shade on this trail.

This was a fun trail to hike, not much elevation but pretty views looking out towards the Salt River. When I hiked it there were a lot of mountain bikers. We didn't even see another hiker until we were finishing the trial. Because of that, I don't know if I would do this hike again. It's frustrating to have to stop a couple of times a mile to let people pass.

Other than that, this is a well maintained trail. It would be good for families and trail running. Easy to follow, nothing too technical.
