65*. Sunny. Great day for hiking. This was our first time on Los Burros. We enjoyed the many options from the maze of well-marked trails. Moderate hiking with some strenuous climbs and descents. Plenty of birds to accompany us. Several squirrels as well. We'll be back.

Did the south 8 mile loop using the cutoff trail to come back at the base of Pierce Mtn. Saw 1 mtn biker and no one else. Easy loop w/ gradual climb going counterclockwise. Gorgeous piece of forest w/o recent clearing of trees. The trail crosses some roads, but didn't see or hear any vehicles. It's not elk season.

Nice easy stroll through the forest. We got dropped off and rode back to the ranch where I stay in the summer. Connects to the County Club and Springs trail.

First time mtn biking. Middle aged man in pick-up ball shape. Just got a hardtail 2015 bike on Craigslist for this outing. Was going for full LB trail but ended taking the short trail back. At 3.5 miles, the climbs became more challenging for our crew and started walking some of the uphills. The short trail back was a nice payoff for the work of the first 6 of 8 miles. Next time, I’d probably walk the short trail in and bike the rest of the regular LB. May try it again sometime.

A great spot on a Saturday morning, had the trail to myself. Took the Lake Mountain spur to the fire lookout, well worth it. I clocked 16.8 miles. Plenty of wildflowers, Monarch butterflies, and peace.

I had an awesome ride and even got to see some deer within the first two miles of the ride. Definitely coming back to do some camping as well.

Great beautiful forest hike! Shady pine forest with aspen patches scattered throughout. Lots of green grass and wildflowers with large open Meadows. We saw several horny toads, turkey and horses. We took the ‘Shortcut’ trail and the ‘Short Loop’ for about 8 miles total. Terrain was uneven, but certainly a gentle moderate. Memorial Day weekend was not too crowded at all, conditions were incredible, clear and breezy. Part of the incredible White Mountain Trail System where all of trails are clean, and clearly marked with number waypoints every 1/4 mile.

This wonderful, moderate and varied trail system will reward you with beautiful views and unexpected flora and fauna. The trails are well marked. A few notes about weather. The road is bad, so in wet weather, take care. In summer, there will be bugs, so cover up. It will be somewhat humid in late July and August. Also during this time, it is best to hike in the morning to avoid the typical afternoon thunderstorms. If you do get caught in one, however, they are usually wild but short lived I lived in this general are for years and never knew about this trail, but now it's one of my favorites.

One of the most beautifully scenic hikes in Arizona. We both clocked just over 15 miles, however taking the trail from the old ranger station barn site campground, to the right, all the way around following the white diamonds and the all trails and map my hike apps. It hailed on us in the last mile, so we were very grateful to get in the car out of the lightening and pelting hail. the 7 mile dirt road was pretty washed out fast as we drove back into town early Sunday Afternoon. Perfect day and lots of good photos. Surprised no Elk sightings, only a few cattle.

As long as it hasn’t rained in a few days this is a great trail. One of my favorites.

We went in February so it was a bit cold but that was expected. This was an amazing trail with bits of snow patches and a very well marked trail system. We used our GPS quite a bit to make sure we stayed on the trail and that helped. This would be an amazing trail to do in the spring, summer or fall. We will be back.

Love this trail. We even saw a small herd of horses. The mares were interested in our horses but the stallion quickly diverted them.

Saw a herd of elk just off the trail

This was a great trail! It was well marked and maintained, and the trail itself is interesting to follow, with a wide variety of nature and wildlife (including cows). However, be aware that the loop itself is closer to being 13 miles long than it is to being 9 miles.

Beautiful trail full of wildlife, aspen groves and thick dense canopy. We took our Cub Scout den and hiked 6 miles of the loop. It was a great time and was not very difficult.

This trail was very well marked. I agree it is definitely moderate. Not much wildlife except for a few horn toads. We took the short loop, which took us about 3 1/2 hours. Definitely worth it.

Tough but fun hike if you do the full 13 miles.

I thought this was a fun trail. The uphill was a bit challenging but you are rewarded by the long downhills. Not too many technical areas. Beautiful ride.

Very easy to get lost on this system of trails. You initially start out of a campground, then follow a power line trail for a bit. It then dips off into the forest and winds you up around Wishbone Mountain. There are many intersecting roads (ATV) and trails that are unmarked. Do not go to far to the South East for you will be entering the White Mountain Apache Indian lands. Great for mountain biking!!! You can definately make it a 20-30 mile bike trail by doing various loops.
