This trail was nice, but a bit bland. Other than the cacti it was great for my dog. There were many mountain bikers but space to share the trail. I’m an experienced hiker so I consider this an easy hike. There were many small children so that gives an idea as to the difficulty.

Beautiful trail! I seriously felt like I was in a scene from Bambi! :D This is a perfect trail for hiking, trail running, bikes, families, dogs, etc.. I consider myself an advanced hiker, so this trail was easy for me (Longer/difficult hikes on Saturdays and shorter/easy hikes on Sundays). But if you're a beginner, this trail is perfect! It is not overly crowded which makes it even better. Overall, I'd highly recommend this trail! :)

much of this trail is smooth and not rocky so it's easier on the feet,.. also it reaches a nice elevation where you get good views ... nice places to stop... pretty vegetation... one of the better trails in Phoenix area

Beautiful hike with great views. Plenty of shade if you get going early in the morning (we started at 6am and finished around 8).
