Beautiful landscape and views. Oscillated between runnable and too rocky so it was hard to keep an even pace for running. Only saw two sets of hikers as it was fairly hot by the time I got out there. Saguaros were still blooming and the agave bloom stalks were stunning. Would definitely do again!

Overall a great trail! Wasn’t a fan of the last section on the dirt road. Saw a young gila monster near the parking lot.

The start of this trail is on the East side of parking lot. Walk between two iron fence posts and over an old ruin of a building. The trail goes from there. Do not go to trail by the sign post. Love this beautiful trail. I would add on the walk to massacre falls, then on way back take the 2nd half of the loop. It’s Pretty deserted the second half of loop. Really cool crossing over creek three times. Very beautiful right before sunset.

Nice, well marked trail with great views and enjoyable creek crossings. However be advised the western half of this trail is narrow and may require bush whacking depending on the season. This section of trail also has loose rock.

Do NOT follow this loop!!! A lot of it was on a dirt road with cars. It also missed the jaw dropping view point! Do the massacre ground trail out and back for a spectacular hike. Five stars if you do it my way
