Fun to trail run as it’s pretty flat. Not many views.

The trailhead is a little difficult to find and is located in the back of an apartment complex. The trail itself is low key. Recommended for those who enjoy a walk through the forest.

Gorgeous trail with gorgeous views. Starts off with some heavy city noise and traffic, but in a short time you're completely surrounded by trees and only nature sounds. Loved it.

Entrance is in an apartment complex with permit parking? Garbage!

Easy walking trail. Beautiful wildflowers. A little tricky to find - at the of Payton End - trail for is down the hill.

So this trail starts off kind of weird because the directions take you to the end of a coldesac in the rio town homes which feels like a strange place to start a hike, but I just started walking and found the trail. I believe you can park there without a permit as long as it's not between 11pm-5am (why would you be hiking at that time anyways) but regardless it was a nice hike that featured some stunning views of the peaks and a beautiful flower field in August

Very beautiful scenery! The hike itself had some mild elevation changes, with transitions from flowery meadows to wooded areas.

Easy hard packed wide trail winding in a pretty little valley with ponds. Is a section of the Arizona Trail so has access to many forest trails on the southern end.
