Great moderate loop which includes a summit, great views and Classic Sonoran Desert scenery. Multiple access points and other connecting trails allows for the loop to be changed if required. Awesome views and a great moderate workout. You can skip the 1/4 mile summit if desired, but would recommend taking the extra effort for the views. Watch out for mountain bikes which use the trails regularly. Take plenty of water (at least 2 liters) as there is no water available on these trails.

This is a good trail for trail running. The trails are pretty clear compared to other local hikes.

I was somewhat annoyed by the number of bikers and having to get out of their way so much. For that reason alone I do t think I will frequent this trail much.
