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.

Great trail! The trail is very well marked. I will be back again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When driving into Skyline Park, you can park at the 1st stop sign and pick up Quartz Trail there, or park at the Discovery area. This trail doesn’t start where the majority of the other Skyline trails start. With that being said, this was a really nice hike. There didn’t seem to be many people on this trail. Great incline headed up to the summit, a real good work out. I definitely benefited from having hiking poles as there was quite a bit of gravel once you start the Javelina portion. The view was well worth my effort. I highly recommend this trail and would do it again.

Scenic, fairly easy, short uphill portion, that is easy to follow. Took my wife and 2 hours.

This trail starts off simple enough. Then gives you a good workout. Offers some spectacular views. It’s worth it to get to the top. A great hike overall! I would hike this trail again.

Great hike! Beautiful views and today’s weather was perfect.

Great hike with good elevation changes

This trail is nice, had a section that is moderately difficult for a beginer hiker, but can be done.

Nice, fun hike for those desert views. A moderate climb, with the switchbacks really making your body work. We did the optional summit climb, a little steep but worth it for the views. Nicely situated park without looking in neighborhoods like other hikes I have been on. Lots of trails here, picnic table areas and clean restrooms. Recommend this place!

First and foremost, it's free. I'll never pay to walk around in nature. Overall not too bad, though the increase in elevation can get a little steep at times, especially on some of the switchbacks. The terrain gets quite rocky in some places. Not sure if that is normal for this area, it's my first trail in Arizona. The views are ok, though there's not much to look at except scrub brush and cactus. And it's only 3.5 miles if you don't do the little out and back at the top. All in all, not a bad little hike.

Easy hike until you trek the summit.

I guess this place could be fun if it was muddy but sense it hardly rains it was okay. There was a little hill that was little amusing halfway through the trail.

One of my regular go to’s because it’s close to home. Love the trails at Skyline, this one in particular. Great workout and a very rewarding view from the peak. Worth it! Well kept, clean, easy parking and easy to get to. Dog friendly, please pick up after them. :)

nice cool day, nice trail , well maintained trails and trailhead park, fresh water bathrooms.

Nice hike.. our dog enjoyed the views too

Nice hike.
