It says it's a 6.6 mile hike when in turn it was 8 miles. If you are looking for something serene and peaceful I wouldn't bother as you could hear the traffic from Estella Parkway.
Beautiful day hiking this trail. Best hiking weather today. Desert wild flowers were in bloom everywhere.
Pretty long. Very little people on trail. goes to highest elevation in the park.
Nice loop. It took about 2 1/2 hours. Very serene. I did not see one other person.
Loved the trail. Do not take the dysart cut off. You will miss the beautiful part of the trail
I did this hike last week and it was great.
This morning I hiked the Rainbow Valley Loop, which included parts of the Toothaker, Gadsen and Butterfield Trails. At the top of the Rainbow Valley Trail there are some pretty good views as well as the top of the Toothaker Trail.
Estrella Mountain is well-suited for horseback riding and mountain biking, but the trails are too flat and boring for hiking. The scenery is boring, there is little elevation change, etc.
