Great views with the late afternoon shadows. No too much traffic that time of the day.

This Trail was beautiful but honestly nothing special. It is very single file so if you are planning to go with a group I would choose another. There are also lots of mountain bikers so you have to step aside a lot into the brush. It was not a very hard hike but it was very slippery due to loose rocks/gravel. Not a great hike to bring a dog on either due to skinny pathway

Great hike with decent views. Not too steep but a good incline - has its rocky moments. Cave is just a little over a mile up on your right. We went to cave and turned back, but you have the option to continue on and take another trail that loops back to trailhead. Lots of spring flowers. Very little Shade.

I like this trail because it’s so close to my house, and it’s free. There are some mountain bikers, but not too many to bother me.

Good hike but the trailhead is tough to find since it’s not marked. Iron gates are at the head of the trail.

I loved this trail. Not too busy, beautiful views, it’s very gravelly though. Next time I would bring proper hiking boots so I don’t slip as much.

Awesome short hiking trail with sweet views! I only wish I would have brought my head gear to explore the cave.

Great views- a lot of bikes. Have to listen for them since they come down fast! But all of the bikers are super polite

Somewhat standard desert hiking. This trail is interesting enough for experienced hikers, but accessible enough for a 70yo. The view of Red Mountain is great, as are the relics of the old gold mining days. Clearly this trail is popular with bikers, though we saw only two.

Definitely a mountain bikers Trail. Very narrow, lots of cactus on the side, some steep drop-offs. Got to be very careful, watch and listen for incoming mountain bikes hauling ass around blind corners. Not so great for young kids or animals. Great hike otherwise. Beautiful views.

Pretty hike...with a nice incline.. But too many bikers... We had 3 dogs with us and had to jump out of the way numerous times.. Wouldn't hike again with dogs.. Way too dangerous
