Started out as a lovely trail run. The best scenery is on the back end - just amazing. The signs are inadequate. I got lost, and my phone inexplicably died, so I got more exercise than I had bargained for. GPS or a map is highly recommended. But since it is wedged between the 40 and the 93, with a good sense of direction, you'll find your way out...eventually :) Also, I couldn't find the trailhead noted on here but rather parked off the Coyote Pass area, which you can only reach going south on the 93 (toward Kingman).

Very scenic, allow yourself enough time to have enjoyable experience. I suggest at least 3 to 4 hours. Although the entire loop could be done in about 2 hours.. I’m 55.. Watch the signs closely, I did check my GPS often... Moderate trail with a few difficult spots...But I did love it and I would go on it again to do for exploring the other connector trails..

We love this trail. It can be confusing at first, so pay attention to the direction you hike. Scenic and beautiful in spring.

Ok so yeah the trail starts off beautifully but then all the signs keep saying trail to the left and trail to the right and none mention which trail and where the end is in conjunction to that. I got lost. In the dark. Of course my own problem because I'm an idiot. I made it out by listening to the traffic but I made it out on the other side, on 40, after bouldering my way out through this canyon. Make sure you have a charged phone but coverage is in and out, but also check in with your friends. Especially if you're all alone. Like me. Needless to say, I will write an email and even volunteer to improve those signs lol.

Well groomed trail. The maps that were out there did not have a "you are here" part and we came out at the wrong trailhead. Be careful.
