This trails follows close to San Juan Rd. Part of the trail is rocky while other parts are well just dirt. You go all the way to Max Delta some of the mines have been opened by someone and they are not safe so be careful.

Super Easy trail Great for short Summer Hikes. I hiked it a few times. A lot of the Goldmine ruins are still left. Great Views of Phoenix and Gila Crossing. One day, I was out there and low Clouds where just above the Base of the Mountain. It was so cool.

Hiked Max Delta today. Only 2 miles, so not that long. I actually crossed it a couple times while bushwhacking across the desert. The trail markers show it as MD, which is catchy. Pretty mild as trails go, but it at least leads to some more challenging hikes.

It was around 100 today and humid, but a easy hike. I wasn't sure how this hike would be, but after doing I will comeback and do it again in the spring. There is a lot of cactus and flowers just not blooming now.
Also when I got to the top of the mine and looked north some great views of the valley as well as Phoenix.
