Tough climb, especially at the very top. The beginning isn't bad; quite flat. However, this part when coming back seems extensively long. Very few people on the trail (I hiked for 3 hours and saw about 8 groups of people) and there is nice scenery.

Beautiful view of the fountain.

Amazingly beautiful scenery. It was a little difficult to find the trail after crossing the dirt road. We had to double back to find it. It is just a few feet down the road past the wash. Up that wash are the other caves and petroglyphs. It looks like a game trail.

The first part of this hike is through a gated community and then you work your way through the relatively flat Dixie Mine Trail. There were plenty of wild flowers blooming along the way that provided many views. The Thompson Peak Road is easy at first but the last half is very challenging. The steepness is very tough but the view at the top is pretty but polluted.

I come here after work to go running and it's beautiful. The flowers are in bloom so there's lots of colors and desert animals out. I started at Dixie Mine Trail and switched to the Sonoran Trail for more of an incline. The views of Four Peaks Mountain are amazing.

Beautiful out and back hike. Not very difficult and a great place to take the dog for a casual hike. Not very many people. You do have to park outside a gated community (Eagles Nest) and walk approx a half mile to trail head.
