Beginning and turn around a little confusing. Deceptive gradual elevation going out. A good view of Wind Cave along the way.

Boring trail, I walked it today and it basically follows a fence line bordering the National Forest. It is way longer than 6.9 miles out and back.

Extremely green which was nice but not a whole lot going on with this trail kind of boring. I did figure out how to get to the wave cave so it wasn't all for nothing. Very easy great for dogs and kids.

You want a beautiful and quiet hike through the gorgeous Arizona desert, this hike is for you! This trail shows you wildlife, wildflowers, and stunning mountains without all the hard climbing. The only thing even remotely considered difficult would be the length, especially if you make it a round trip. Over 12 miles that way. It's not really heavily trafficked, I ran into maybe two other people the whole time. Lots of solitude here. It must be really pretty after a rain shower and in the spring with tons of wildflowers!

I love this trail! Most trails go up into the mountains so the view is basically the same. This trail takes you parallel to the mountains so you get an ever changing view. It's so beautiful especially in the spring when the cactus are blooming. The trail is pretty easy but there is minor elevation changes and a winding trail to make it interesting.

It's a great ride lots of connecting trails to challenge any skill level!
The downsides are
1. trail isn't maintained so you have to watch out for cacti
2. Beginning of trail is really rocky and narrow, makes it a hassle when its busy.
3. Lots of lose sand that's hard to ride through unless you have some speed going in.

Borders Tonto National Forest line. Pretty views. Not difficult. Not heavily traveled. Cattle sightings sometimes.

Nice little stroll trough the base of the foothills that follows a fence line mostly. Lots of scenery, cool saguaro forests and some free range steer. I took it from the Wave Cave parking lot to the paved lot to the west. Definitely an easy hike for the family. Always bring the essentials though...

One of my absolute favorites. Wildflowers pretty much past, but cacti in glorious bloom.

Just follows the foothills. Rather boring. I wanted to go up to mountain top.
