NOT A LOOP...if you intend to make it a loop, do not cross Piestewa Parkway. Trail 100 is actually a point--> point trail and pretty well marked as such. from Mountain View park, the terrain is fairly level and easy with a bit of up and down. from 7th Street to Cave Creek is a bit more challenging but still do-able for most mobile persons. from Cave Creek to Dreamy Draw/AZ 51 is where most of the changes in elevation take place. Take water! We did this in mid Nov. and temp was 90°. Thankfully we took two fluid packs each and refilled empty one at Dreamy Draw/Piestewa Parking bathroom facilities. There are facilities at 7th street near the beginning/end of this "loop". NOTE FOR THOSE WANTING THE LOOP: Do not take the tunnel under AZ 51 unless you need water/restroom. Trail 100 carries on to it's terminus Long past AZ 51. If you are looping to go back to Mountain View, continue straight where Trail 100 turns right to enter tunnel under AZ 51. This part of the trail is blazed well but unmarked. When you leave Trail 100 to loop, you will be just about 2/3 around the "circle" on the map or about 4:00. The remainder of this area has some challenging but hikable trail! Check out Trail 100 from Mountain View Loop on Relive! https://www.relive.cc/view/vQvxZj59e96

Flat. Not too much elevation for those looking for a difficult hike.

Underrated trail with a good mix of rocky terrain and smooth path. The challenge here is the length. Bring more water than you think you need, but you can also refill at the North Mountain Visitor Center if need be. One of my favorite trails in Phoenix!

Great training hike for distance, but not much to look at, even in the spring, following a wet winter.

This was more difficult than a true easy, especially midday when the sun is high. Having had surgery 3 weeks ago, this was probably more than I should’ve tackled. But it was pretty. :)

Great for distance, not much to see though. Maybe in the spring it’d be better with more wildflowers, but as far as I can see this trail is really best for people trying to work on distance stamina. Trail is well-marked.

Holy cow, we did this trail end to end and doubled back some. Total mileage was over 18 miles. Only part we didn't retrace our steps on was between Dreamy Draw area and 7th St. Not much for elevation, a few spots here and there, but great for mileage. Lots of mountain bikers and some horses. The guy in the visitor center was very helpful explaining the trail. We bought a great trail map of N Phx mountain area.

There are lots of break off paths on 100. It always makes it interesting and different.
