This trail is underrated! I loved it. The actual loop doesn't start until you get a couple miles down the Grapevine/Prospector trail. If you follow the Alltrails map you might not get the actual Church Rocks Loop. Start on the Grapevine trail for .7 miles then turn right onto the Prospector trail. Follow Prospector for .4 miles and you'll start seeing Church Rocks signs.

The trail is easy and has nice views as others have indicated, though it can be difficult to follow correctly. You follow the grapevine trail for a while, but then turn off onto Dino trail. At some point towards the end we found ourselves still on the Dino trail and past the loop we should have been on even though we were constantly using AllTrails maps. If I were to do over, I would just do the actual Church’s Rock hike so I could see that instead.

The trail is an easy hike. Came across a few other hikers and some bike riders. Everyone very pleasant. Be careful not to keep walking out the Grape Vine trail. There are no signs for the Church Rock loop. You turn off at the Dino Cliff trail marker. When you get to the point to turn around ang go back there is another trail the bikers are using. The trail markers have no trail name but it heads off and away from the parking area so be sure to turn around. First part of the trail is a dirt road then you walk the hard rocks on the Dino Trail. Great views is perfect 3 mile loop that is easy to get too. Will definitely walk it again. There is NO SHADE.

Nice pretty easy hike out to the Church Rocks. Start on Grapevine Trail, taking the Prospector to the Church Rocks Loop, then back around to Bracken Loop connector and Grapevine to trail head

Great views of red rocks and Pine Valley mountain, varied terrain. Some searching for correct trail needed. Only downside is noise from the freeway.

Very cool trail. Through an under bridge into a vast field with many trails within. Great for hiking and biking. Awesome views throughout. If you have allergies be prepared because it is through very weedy areas that might be sensitive to some.

It rained the entire day yesterday. Today I biked the trail and it was great. There were only a couple spots that had mud or water. Fun ride.

Great trail after you turn left toward Dino Cliffs. Lots of beautiful scenery, fun rock formations and views of the city. We hiked this trail, others were mountain biking and made me want to bring my bike back and try it :)

This is one of my favorite Sunday afternoon hikes. There is only one point that's moderately difficult, the rest is easy.

Nice trail through the red rocks. From the Grapevine Trail take the Dinosaur Tracks Trail.
