I personally was not a fan of this track, due to the high frequency of loose rock, with fairly steep gradient. I was glad to have brought along my walking sticks for stability. I did not do the full loop, due to my half century knees telling me to turn back. In the wash at the bottom, there were several homeless taking up residence. Maybe you will like this for the views, but I’ll stick with other trails. Happy hiking, all!

Great trail, didn't get to see the fountain erupt, but did do frisbee golf, it was fun.

Everyone else is right. I thought that I trusted my senses and knew better than the rest of the commenters (ya right) ... it’s definitely a confusing & unmarked trail with lots of misleading offshoots. We never saw water :( and turned around when the sun got low, so we’ll just have to try again

We drove to see the fountain, walked around the grounds which are well kept and enjoyed watching some disc golf in action. This path is paved and great for running, walking, or even roller blading. There is a full disc golf course around the water as well as picnic areas, playgrounds, and a nice selection of statues and artwork. We were there an hour and a half and unfortunately didn’t see the fountain. It came up for a few seconds at 6:15 but immediately shut off when there was a small gust of wind. Bummed!

Scenic running trail in a nicely kept neighborhood. Half is flat pavement around a beautiful fountain, the other half is dirt/gravel/ small rocks with various inclines in the backyards of local neighborhood. Great scenic views at the top of those off roading parts. Recommended for an easy run or leisurely stroll

Not bad at all!! I started at the westernmost part of the trail and went up what Trailforks says is the end. Had to do it quick because it was before work one day, but I pulled back about 3/4 in because I didn’t know what lies ahead was mostly downhill. That portion of the downhill I did hit though... whew! Could really rack up some speed, some nice rocks and a few rollers to hit & get off the ground a little. Wish I would’ve gone the whole way! Would’ve been an easy climb out. Next time!

Nice paved path. Fountain goes off every hour on the hour for 15 minutes. People running, families walking, strollers, etc so can feel crowded. The water also gives off a very strong smell because it is reclaimed water.

Very nice views of the fountain! Great for an evening outside with mountainous views.

Beautiful scenery but buggy and a number of off trail sections. Could be a wonderful trail if properly maintained!

The trail wasn’t bad but All Trails map doesn’t quite show where you’re supposed to go. Most of the time, if it looks like you’re supposed to be on the trail and it’s well defined, that’s not the one you’re supposed to be following. Luckily it’s close to roads so no big danger of getting lost, but I wouldn’t consider the full loop to be an easy hike. The left half is fairly straightforward but there’s so many off trails not marked on AllTrails that it’s super confusing. That being said the second half is a really cool hike through the wash, climbing rocks and potential wildlife.

Wild flowers at their peak today. What an amazing trail! The end of the trail is mundane but it’s about the journey...right? Beautiful, just beautiful! Not shade and no water to refill so go prepared! Don’t forget to pay your $2 when you get to the trailhead!

Ok. Not worth the drive if you are coming from Phoenix.

there are tons of trails within this area. did the loop yesterday. to me it was a perfect of steady to uphill and downhill. some parts you do need to walk side ways to not slip. great hike to explore and many old mines ..
