This is an excellent loop that is very well maintained, well sign posted and if you include the vista summit trail, a moderate work out. Massive Car Park, good restrooms, and plenty of seating. Make sure you bring plenty of drinking water. If you want near perfect desert views, on a very well designed and maintained trail, this will give you a good 2 mile loop (2.5 miles if including the summit). This is part of the Sonoran Preserve trail system and is has excellent signage throughout.
