My wife and I hiked the loop portion of the Peach Orchard Trail. It's the only trail that's rated as "Difficult" in the Payson Area Trail System. It's mostly a Jeep trail that loops around a lopsided bowl. There are no level sections, but the only difficult part of the trail is a ridiculously steep and washed out section on the south end that connects the highest elevation on the west to the lowest elevation on the east. We played CSI when we found debris from an ATV rollover halfway down the slope. The views from the entire trail, including the highest elevation, are very ordinary. If you're looking for a gently sloping loop trail that includes a very steep section, this is the trail for you.
