Parking is slim. Had to park down the road off to the side. Not a bad trail. It shouldn’t be rated as moderate. More like Easy Plus. The trail is mainly flat and smooth. It is very wide, able to fit a vehicle down it. The scenery is nice and there are two windmill areas to see. We had to get out of the way of mountain bikers every 20 minutes or so. Some of them come flying through and expect you to jump out of their way. Others (majority) were polite and announced themselves so you had time to move. Not too many actual hikers out though. No elevation to speak of. All Trails says it is 2 1/2 hours or something like that. We did it in less than 2 hours and didn’t feel like we got much of a workout. I would say it’s a good beginner trail that allows you to see some nice sites and enjoy the weather!

Cool trail. Plenty of opportunities to view different plants and most importantly the Sagauro cacti. They are massive and plentiful, you will find some next to the trail. I encountered cicadas, small lizards, birds, and even a rabbit. Watch out for the horse poop, dogs aren’t allowed but horses are. They attract the flies. Also, there are a lot of rocks on the trail. So wear the right kind of shoes or risk twisting your ankle.

I biked this Trail, I saw very few people in the first mile, I would recommend not to hike/bike alone. There is no guide signs at the end of the trail.

First 2.3 miles follow a 4WD road at which point Quillter trail (AZT) heads off to the left. There was water 2.5 miles up the trail from the junction. Went another 1.3 miles and turned around at a dry creek. This trail is south facing so start early and bring plenty of water.

This is a Jeep trail near Vail, Arizona which leads to the Quilter trail at 2.3 miles which is part of the Arizona trail. The Quilter trail climbs 5.5 miles to the Manning Camp trail. We went approximately 2.5 miles and then turned back. Passed through one of the most beautiful forests of huge saguaros anywhere. Wonderful views of Rincón Peak.

Nice wide trail with a variety of flat and some uphill. Running water with snow melt and after a rain. Several options for connecting trails. Very scenic. Lots of wildlife tracks.

Nice dessert trail that connects to the Arizona Trail. Ran alone with my tunes blaring loudly and self defense items in my pack

Easy but rocky, beautiful scenery and nice shade tree at end with a seat to relax. No shade along the trail. Quiet and peaceful.

Trail stays low meandering between mountains on all sides. Merges with the AZT 2.3 miles in, so bring some trail magic for the thru hikers you pass. I liked this relatively flat hike.

Awesome trail, not to difficult. A couple of uphill parts, but nothing unbearable. Beautiful views and perfect weather right now in mid March. I would definitely recommend this trail. It’s easy to navigate, nearly impossible to get lost. We saw lots of wild flowers, and of course cactus. Bring lots of water and expect it to take about 3 hours give or take.

Love this trail. Not very difficult and an ideal trek for the solitary hiker. A variety of flora along the way and water in the Rincon River when we were there. It would be a good hike when the cacti are in bloom.

This is a nice, relatively easy hike. The path is wide, which is great for hiking with other people. The loose rocks make it a little more challenging.

Very easy hike that takes you through Camp North and then ends at Camp Hope for an out and back experience. Usually traveled in the mornings, but great to do in the afternoons if you want to get away from civilization for a while.

The Quilters trail branches off the Hope Camp trail at the 2.3 mile mark. Where as the Hope Camp trail is open to bikes and is a great ride, the Quilters trail is for hiking only. A beautiful trail that leads deep up into the Rincons. The trail is up and down for the first mile or so, then gets very steep. As with most of the mountains in and around Tucson, steep trails means great views, and this is no exception

My husband and I hiked this trail in February 2013. It was a very enjoyable hike. We saw 2 jackrabbits and a very large rattle snake shed. There were only 3 others on the trail- on horseback. The road up to the trail head was a little 'iffy' in our rented motor home, but we made it. We recommend this easy-to-moderate out-and-back hike!
