I recommend this trail for all ages—if they can do the distance. Very little shade on a well maintained and very well signed trail. You just have to remember which trails you’re following. The elevation gain is very doable , although I think going clockwise seems more gradual. Great views of the Catalinas and Tucson Mountains and beyond. We will be back to do the other trails when it cools down.

Started at Wild Burro Trailhead then walked Wild Burro to Lower Javelina and back when the Wild Burro cuts through. We would have done the entire Lower Javelina loop but the dog got tired of all the rocky inclines. Not a difficult trail, but I would recommend hiking boots/shoes with ankle support for the rockier bits. Great signposting and lovely trail overall! Great views and flowers! And there are plenty of places you can cut back if it suits your needs!

Great bunch of trails around this area - well-groomed, pet friendly, not too crowded, and with options for all levels and distances. Plus some shady areas and lots of parking right by the trailhead!

We did the Wild Burro to Wild Mustang to Upper Javelina to the Community Trail to the trail head of the Wild Burro on January 1st, which was around 9.9 miles total. It took us around 4.5 hours stopping a few times for pictures and definitely a beautiful hike with a variety of views. The only thing I would change about this route is take out the upper javelina trail finding another way back to the parking lot as this takes you ~1.2 miles out of the way and into the golf course and walking through homes. After walking in the mountains for over 8 miles amongst beautiful scenary to end up walking on a golf course where construction equipment is everywhere is sort of a bummer. Definitely a must hike just make sure not to take upper javelina when wild mustang comes to an end.

Clearly marked, pretty straightforward, but made for a pleasant challenge with beautiful views.

Beautiful day for a hike, temperatures in the low 80s! I hiked from the trail head at the parking lot up the Javelina trail to the Mustang Trail Bench and took pictures. Trekking poles are helpful on this trail to keep your balance.

This evening we just walked up to the benches on the mustang trail to enjoy the view but coming back down came upon a little baby rattle snake, just resting on the trail. Picture is posted. This is a great trail to start out for beginners, it’s not that hard and the views are spectacular! You can just go up to the bench and sit and rest if you don’t want to go the full trail. It’s about 1 1/2 miles in.
