Ran this trail on Presidents Day. Was nice out and overcast and just a few sprinkles. The trail setting on the app was quite accurate once you hit past the old abandoned house and traveled north. Overall a fun trail with some challenges once you drop into the river bottom.

This trail is flat and easy I recommend it for all ages. But know you might get your feet wet because you cross a creek twice. This trail is a nice walk and it is very relaxing.

Amazing hike! It’s a toss up as to which is my favorite hike thus far.... this or Flatiron. The navigating, boulder scrambling, and small climbs make this hike challenging and invigorating! At first glance it looks intimidating, but very doable, with plenty of hand and footholds. Best advice I received on this hike....”when u get close to the summit and it starts to even out... head towards your left and look for cairns.”

It was an easy trail but really difficult to follow. When you begin you can follow the posts labeled “5” but as you get closer to the red rocks, the posts aren’t labeled anymore.

Nice walk for all skill levels. Lots of petrified wood

was a lot of fun in the snow. :)

Really easy

This is a beautiful trail and a fantastic way to see the Tucson mountains. Fairly dense saguaros, varied terrain, and gorgeous views. My only complaint was that I saw several dogs which are clearly prohibited as stated on the sign. Now, I am a serious dog lover and honestly don’t mind them out there, but there were many piles of poo on the trail so either someone’s not picking up after their pets and/or there are some critters about that could seriously harm your pet. Be cautious and courteous if you’re going to bring Fido.

We drove the Montana Loop today with a stop at the Rogers Trough trailhead. FR-357 / Hewitt Station Rd is closed to off road vehicles. We took the detour FR-252 until it split to the north and Bomboy Mine to the south, which we followed to FR-357. All of the gates were open, the rivers were dry, and only a few puddles still left on the trail. Off FR-650, there were a number of RV campers throughout. Uploaded a gpx of the route we drove.

My 11 year old daughter and I are novice hikers. We really enjoyed this trail. It was not too difficult and had a great view from the saddle. My daughter wanted to go up higher from there, but the trail dwindles and there are a ton of jumping cholla. I will return to hike up to the saddle though. Not a lot of traffic. Bring plenty of water!

Warning—this is a climb and not a hike. So FYI depending on what you’re looking for. I didn’t enjoy it because I was looking for 1) a great cardio workout where I would get my butt kicked and 2) be alone with my thoughts. Instead I was too concerned with where my next step would be, climbing up boulders, and dreading the way down. So I turned around halfway up the gap. Others on the trail seemed to be enjoying themselves and there were all ages. So I suppose it just depends what you’re looking for prepare yourself for a “climb” to the top.

We just finished a portion of the trail - it was really great with spectacular views! Definitely some deep rutted and moderate+ climbs and overall fun! Did not do the entire loop. Went to point 6 and turned around.

Fourth time hiking Picketpost and finally it’s easy. The views take your breathe away. It’s beautiful!!!!

Great with the dogs, beautiful too

I did not like camping here. It’s too close to the road and you can hear cars all night. I prefer more secluded.
The trail is easy and short

A bit tougher than I thought - steep incline. Lightly traveled. Good hike tho.
