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.

Starts at Maricopa trailhead across the street from the parking lot. Decent elevation changes, but for the most part, an easy hike. Lots of bikers, but everyone was really nice and polite.

This is a really nice trail that has great views and interesting terrain. Many of the previous reviews are spot on; it starts at a Maricopa Trail sign near the road that is across the street from the parking lot. It did get a little confusing the first time I hiked it. If you take your phone and the AllTrails app you will be fine. I hiked the part of the trail with the most elevation gain first and could have missed a turn or two. Not a big deal.

Clear laid out paths, watch out for bikers and they’ll watch out for you. Mineshaft was fun to see and some great views. Went on a Sunday afternoon and saw only 4 groups of people.

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.
