Fun trail, but too many bugs. Very narrow, I would recommend wearing pants. Soon to be private property, Toll Brothers are building homes. You have to walk 1 mile on construction area where you park your car on the street before you start the trail.

Solo hike today the only car parked in the street. The toll brothers construction crews were doing heavy lifting all week and so they closed the trail head access during the week. I was able to walk up a mile to the trail head then do the Western loop and by mile back down to my car. The only people I saw were a few construction workers but no one on the trails nice cool cloudy day.

Nice day hike with no traffic at all. Once I got to the the Sonoran loop, I saw only 1 other hiker for a few miles. Little shade so bring plenty of water

Beautiful trail! We wanted something “easy” but with a good distance. It was a beautiful March day, but we still used all of our 3 liters of water each. Beautiful hills and fields of wild flowers. One part of steep uphill on the Western Loop, but the rest was rolling hills. Absolutely gorgeous, I would definitely recommend the Western and Sonoran Loops. Again, bring lots of water!

Great trail. The western loop was tough but the rest of it was fairly easy. Very well marked and maintained. The stewards at the trail head were really nice and helpful. There's a couple of muddy spots right now but nothing that can't be easily avoided.

The hike from the new Adero Canyon trail head to the border of McDowell Mountain Regional Park is a good work out with views of 4 Peaks, Superstitions, Thompson Peak, Dixie Mine and of course the Fountain in Fountain Lake. At times you are cut off from views of the town of fountain hills which gives you the sense you are many miles from civilization. The trails are narrow in excellent shape and only 3 people seen in almost 3 hours! It is our little known secret in our Fountain Hills back yard.
