Hard to find...but a great trail for a pleasant walk in the desert. It was our first visit to this trial...we had our dogs with us...one is 12 the other is 14 so we weren't looking for anything too strenuous....they did great.

Got to trailhead with no problem in a AWD Dodge SUV. (Don't tell the rent-a-car company) We stayed out of the wash on the south side for the first couple of miles. Sand does look deep.
So glad we got to trailhead, since it was an amazing experience. Not another soul on the mountain all day. It is a decent climb, but only the last little scramble is nerve-racking.
Of the few hikes I've done around Phoenix, it definitely feels the most wild.

I like that I can catch this trail in Sienna Hills. I was hesitant about continuing on because I felt I should’ve been going further west. I marked it as .9 miles as I encountered the first Tortuga Trail post (signage says .8 to Sienna Hills). The trail is easy to follow with the Skyline Regional Park trail markers. Very secluded as I only saw one hiker coming down the trail and two bikers on my way back. It is a slight scramble to the peak, but beautiful views at the top.

no shade on this one, but a great hike to do in the spring or fall months. definitely seems longer than what it really is due to the constant elevation climb. Not that many people know about this Trail, nor did we see that many people.

The views are excellent, the terrain makes you work, but is doable. I went on a Monday morning thinking there won't be many people, but the parking lot was already full when I got there. At the foothills it was very crowded, but did clear up as I got higher.

This was a great trail. It was marked very well and easy to follow along the way. I will definitely come back and try another trail.

This one is pretty easy. It’s straight through Verrado and then connects to Skyline via Lost Creek. From there you could add some serious mileage. I really enjoy Verrado, but the majority of it is flat. Any incline is going to be from when you connect to Skyline, which I recommend visiting for their array of trails.

Awesome trail and view! Trail is not too bad but the road in is. Hike reminds me of Squaw/Piestawa Peak but much better and quieter. If you love rocks, you'll love this hike!

Extremely dog friendly trail with a gradual incline, then decline, for a great hike with amazing views of the city, desert scenery, and the occasional wildlife

Trail is wide and mixed with small rocks and dirt.
First 3 miles are easy incline. Then 1 mile uphill(not easy...40degree+ incline??). Then you can apparently make your own trail to the “summit” while climbing rocks and avoiding cacti.

Nice view but would not do the hike again. Not that scenic compared to the other side of White Tanks area.

Fantastic hike with rewarding views. It's fairly challenging but doable if you're used to hikes with a steep incline. A 4 wheel drive or high clearance vehicle is highly recommended as the dirt roads that lead into the hike are very sandy.

Great trail I’m a somewhat new hiker. Challenging enough for a good workout if you are trying to get fit and measure your endurance. Plenty of water needed.

the hike was moderate but with boulder climbing on the last part. Plenty of cairns on the way up to follow. The drive to the trailhead was more stressful than the actual hike. Highly recommend an suv... Also do not go through the cattle fence on the way out unless you want to get stuck out there!

Great hike. Beautiful scenery on Pyrite. We added the switchbacks on Turnbuckle for a full loop.

There was a Ford Fiesta on this trail... Decent views and cool old buildings. The best off roading is taking the side trails that this app doesnt show. They have deep sand and small obstacles. Just don't get lost.

dirt road follows dry river bed, VERY SANDY. Use 4 wheel low and be patient. first half of hiking trail is easy-moderate. half-way to two-thirds is moderate and begins rock. last third is very rocky and climbing. SPECTACULAR valley view. FRESH AIR!! windy day, partially cloudy and natural air conditioning LOL
Stay hydrated, used 2 liters on way up. one and a half liters on way back. quite a challenge and well worth the hardwork :D

I would rate this trail more of a moderate level, the trail is clearly marked and well maintained. Either way to take the trail the workout is great, the slight change in terrain made for a fun trail running experience.

This is going to be one of my favorites. Go clockwise if you want more of a workout. At the junction you go 3/10 of a mile to a really cool view from the summit.

Coming down the trail is really easy. The trail here is much better then trails at White Tanks. There are restrooms that are very clean, please help keep them that way.

I love this hike! I enjoy the drive to it. Steep incline is a definite workout. Go early because one the sun is above the mountain range very limited shade. I didn’t make it to the peak, but if you do wear reliable shoes and a walking stick or trekking poles recommended for balance.

love this trail. I do it usually 3 times a week. nice and relaxing with a hard switchback section ( if you start to the south). going up to the summit is a bit of a narrow trail and steep but the views are worth it.

This is a great hike especially on a Sunday. It was not crowded at all. Dogs are allowed on the trail just be aware that that are very rocky outcroppings so your dogs pads should be toughened up or protected! The petroglyphs are worth it!

My “go to” hike Saturday mornings when I’m limited on time but need to get off the concrete. Love this hike. Clockwise is the best workout with the switchbacks! The view from the top is worth it!

It was a very nice morning hike and not very many people at all, probably due to the rain during the previous night and still overcast skies. Most of the trail is easy to moderate and only slightly difficult on the optional summit portion. The whole loop took us a little over 2 hours, which included many photo stops. Great views throughout the hike. Would definitely go back and do again!!

Did this one on New Year’s Eve in the rain. It’s a gorgeous trail, as are all the trails I’ve been to at Skyline. The trek to the summit was doable and I’d love to come back. I didn’t technically do the whole loop, because at some point after the summit I got turned around the way I came, which actually made the trail longer.
