Enjoyable, relatively flat walk through the Sonoran landscape. Hiking in from Usery Pass Rd is preferable than coming in from the Hawes network. Far less bikes. We only encountered one today. Don't mind sharing the trails with bikes, but when they are continuous it become tedious. Fly over by two Apache gunships was a plus. Nice one way hike if you have the option of leaving a car at both ends.

Very nice trail, though some parts could really use better labeling. Also, 7 out of 10 bike riders I passed on the trail really lack trail etiquette . Also, be careful pulling into and out of trailhead on Usery side, as people are really reckless on that portion on highway. Overall, I’d hike this trail again for the scenery and ease of trail.

Great trail. Worked out to be just over 7 miles for me. Heading out the trail is rolling hills but for the most part it is down hill. Coming back was a good workout, heading up hill. Little too no shade along the trail so recommend starting early. Started early as it was around 48 F so nice and cool to run in. A few mountain bikers were out but I can imagine this trail gets busy on the weekends. Overall a nice run and would do it again.

Nice, leisurely trail with pretty views. Lots of flowers and greenery due to all the rain. Good trail to take as a pleasant walk. We saw only 2 bikers and 1 other group hiking.

We enjoyed this trail today. Several varieties of wildflowers, many cactus, snowy mountains, a red mountain and wild mustangs fighting! Pretty level so pretty easy. Trail divides up into many but it doesn’t really matter which you take I don’t think. More bikers than hikers but still fine. A biker said he saw a herd of about 30 but we saw 3 and were excited!

This is a fun trail. If you start on the bush highway side you climb most the way out with some refreshing inclines along the way and the ride back is really fun! If you start on the Usery side you have the fun first and then climb out. Either way the trail is a lot of fun with nothing too technical. There are a couple of cacti that are really close to the trail and you cross a couple of sandy washes but other than that it’s smooth sailing.

Some views of Four Peaks, but the trail is very confusing as others have pointed out. It’s a mix of established trails with some mountain bike paths and a bit of bushwhacking included. I didn’t like to have to cross the road or walk in the washes either.

Beautiful trail but not lightly trafficked. A lot of mountain bikers out. Still... The desert beauty was amazing. Easy trail, saw lots of birds and lizards... Even a rabbit.

We did this trail today from Blevins. lots of bikers, but still beautiful. We're trying to hit every trail in Usery. We love it. A good 3 mile hike, not strenuous, just take in the beauty!

Poorly marked, super overgrown, and teddy bear cactus and huge piles of horse poop laying around over most of the trail. Leave the pups home for this one. Beautiful scenery (minus the horse poop) just a treacherous hike.

No Trail Markings. Hard to stay on trail, even with this App.

Not well marked at all. We never did find any sort of trailhead - but we roamed around several dead end trails to make our own look. I would much rather do Lost Dutchman just down the road!
