horse poop everywhere and so much traffic the trail has turned into power. I did this Trail less than 6 months ago and it was in way better shape. I wouldn't drive across town for this hike but if you're close it's nice to see and hear the river.

Easy trail. Beautiful scenery, nice to see it growing back since the fire. Watch for rattle snakes, we found a 3 foot rattler sunning on the trail; we named it Gary.

Super pretty trail and more green than what you'd normally find in Arizona. The trails weren't marked very well but it wasn't too hard to figure it out & it was pretty fun to make our own path for some of it. Not hard at all and super family friendly

The trails are not marked well. Our visit was cut short with a big ole rattler in an over grown bush next to the trail. To bad the trail couldn't be kept up better and marked clearly.
