Nice walk. I think it will be really pretty when the wildflowers come out.

Great for hiking. Most would be good for biking too. Plenty of shade spots. Not a great amount of altitude change so that’s nice. Has a remote feeling.

I enjoyed this hike, had some elevation that gave you a bit of a workout but not too strenuous. I paid the 3 dollar fee only to realize at the end you don't really have to. Good parking. Vault bathrooms.

Awesome trail with lots to see. Great hike to enjoy with kids.

Beautiful views and nice easy elevation changes. Just enough to get your heart going a little. Ends in a nice riparian area. Take your camera to get pictures of the gorgeous mountains. Now I have Elephant Mountain on my list to conquer next

If you're looking for a few miles, not much elevation gain, and a variety of trees, saguaros, and every imaginable desert plant, this is a good hike for you! If you travel clockwise, once you get into the creek bed area, you can take a right and cross the dry creek, then the next left and go through an amazing display of river trees, and past a small cave entrance. I usually do this easily in 90 minutes, can move briskly and get it done in 70 minutes.

No water on the trail, nor at the trailhead, and spotty cell service so plan accordingly.

Beautiful hike with some unexpected beauty and wildlife. Can’t wait to go back in the spring to see the wildflowers.

the part of this trail we did was great, but we accidently got off the loop and want 2 miles out of the way. Oops! So we just went back out the way we came. still was very beautiful and a great hike to do after a few weeks of not hitting the trails. Not too challenging, but still a good workout. Will definately be returning to do the actual loop.

Great trail. Beautiful views. If you go during the spring between March/April time frame, there are wild flowers blooming everywhere. It's worth seeing at least once!

Beautiful hike. A small challenge incline and then fairly easy from there. $3.00 per person, bring exact change. Pets on leash ok.
