Hiking among the majestic Saguaro's. Beautiful! The trail, a few rocky spots but a scenic, serene hike with views. Highly recommended.

My first trail in my area! So excited to get out and about in Yuma. Definitely has some super steep trails. Learned to zig zag the trail or walk backwards to change up my muscles on the steepest part of the mountain climb. Thanks to the wonderful people on the trail. Especially for the encouragement! So appreciated

Good workout. Not impressed with the scenery. Good views of Phoenix skyline. I think I saw 3 golf courses. Probably won’t go back. There are much better hikes.

Lovely place for hiking some parts are not easy to hike but the top is just wow

Starts off pretty steep. Awesome views once you reach the summit.

Nice walk along Sonoita Creek. I live in Patagonia and hike this frequently. Lots of huge Fremont Cottonwoods, wild turkeys, javelinas, deer and turtles.

Climbed this in July 2017. Beautiful had to race a thunderstorm up to the top. Started really raining with lots of thunder and lightning while I was coming off the top. Had to hurry down into the trees to get some shelter from the storm.

Good trail with a good view. Go right on the trail first if you want a harder hike!

Easy walk in until you hit the base and then truly hike. Getting to the cave is not easy and slightly treacherous., but worth it!

Very easy. Not too crowded. Close to the road at times but still a nice walk.

it was tough not being use to the altitude. but had some nice rocks to sit and check out the views

Easy hike for about the first 0.5miles. Very easy to get off trail once you reach the base of the mountain. Remember, you are far outside the city- so a lot of wildlife..... Rattlesnakes, so be careful. Make sure you start early in the morning as this hike can take a long time if you get off course. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

I hiked a four mile loop from Fairbank ghost town out to the mill and back along the river.

Best hike yet! There is some minor rock climbing involved in this loop, but I just picked up the pup and crawled on up. We will be back again! :)

Beautiful views and nice easy elevation changes. Just enough to get your heart going a little. Ends in a nice riparian area. Take your camera to get pictures of the gorgeous mountains. Now I have Elephant Mountain on my list to conquer next

I connected to this from Spur Cross. It was an ok hike through the shade. There is an old cave/mine shaft that was pretty neat. I may have given it more stars if there was water or in the spring with flowers. Bird activity is as minimal. I enjoyed Spur Cross more. But for kids or older folks this is a relatively easy trail

My boyfriend and I decided to check out this trail last weekend and found that it's a pretty popular hiking trail, but for good reasons...it's slightly challenging and has beautiful scenery! The first half of the trail is steep, so make sure you bring plenty of water and snacks. The parking lot can be slightly crowded with families and other hikers heading up on the weekend, so be sure you get there early in the morning to find parking in the local neighborhood and avoid a little chaos. The trail itself is beautiful, a little sunny in some spots and shaded enough to see different rock formations and all of Phoenix on the way up. The loop around was a great reward after hiking up and taking a few breaks. Only con- LOTS of dog poop scattered along the trail- as this is a dog friendly hike. Be sure to watch your step for loose rocks and poop!

Great hike along the water. Beautiful views along the way. Very enjoyable. When I hiked this it was pretty well traveled and some spots made ‘two lane’ traffic interesting. I did go on a fee-free Park day. Trailhead has a bathroom, picnic area, and lake access.

This trail is great if you want to walk, do not expect any elevation I would rate this as easy.

Great saguaro and many varieties of cholla. Number of mountain bikers but everyone was very nice in sharing the trail. Signage was helpful and a good parking lot.
