Use Saguaro Access to start and parking will be right across the street. Great trail with a decent incline to start. Nice views with a neat mine to view along the way. Clearly defined and easy to follow. Some bike traffic so be sure to watch out. Good for dogs on leash, but watch loose rocks and some cholla in spots.

There were very few hikers but a lot of bikers. Signage was not the best - actually you start on the Maricopa trail.

Great overall trail. Suggest climbing the mountain first due to loose rocks coming down if you were to do the opposite. There are 3 old mines on this trail that we could see, but 2 were filled in. The third is towards the top and is pretty neat. Really good for dogs, but watch for bikes. You feel like you're in the middle of no where pretty quick...love that about this trail. Opportunity to see wildlife.
