A few sections are tricky. The trail can sometimes be hard to find, and it’s very rocky. Still, the view is absolutely worth it, though you may just want to take the Vista Point trail to quickly reach it.

A good trail. Pretty rocky and steep, but lots of shade.

Short cut from Apache junction to the dam. Great scenic drive. 4X4 not needed but it is a gravel road.

nice leisure drive, only real concern are people towing boats trying to get to apache lake...they seem to like to fly around corners in the middle of the road.

great views, camping around apache lake

Started this from the east end (260 Trailhead) and only went in until I hit Drew Trail 291. Lovely hike with a variety of gullies and views. Much easier than Military Sinkhole Trail, which also starts at the 260 Trailhead.

Difficult towards the end but do-able and worth the views!

Be prepared to climb over some rocks. Not your typical hike :)
