Great 2 hour hike 3.5 miles. Follow the path and get to the top. Great view of the fountain . This is great one if you are looking for exercise without exhaustion. Nice double peak area to sit and grab a snack at the top. Easy parking. No restroom at trail head that I saw was only drawback.

The first half of the trail was ok, but the last half made it really worth it coming. We hiked through amazingly beautiful valley and especially enjoyed golden hour and sunset painting mountains around us. Highly Redding coming for sunset.

We got there on a Wednesday at 6:35PM, the parking was nearly empty. Could not pay the parking fee, the credit card device was not working (as shown on screen). The hike was nice, could have been 5, but 4 because: -Beginning is messy route, and there is only a very short moment where you can enjoy being by the river, and see it. -Flies!!! Following you, small, big and some mosquitoes. It drove me nuts. Otherwise it’s a nice hike, among grass and trees, water bring a different type of nature which makes this hike interesting. We could hear but did not see wild horses.

Awesome little loop Kinda crowded near the lake but beautiful and quiet along the rest of the loop! Would definitely do it again

Closed at night- we went then and it was so cool to see the fountain up there at night, but trail goes through peoples backyards and we got snapped at.

Just all right. Kind of uninspiring, especially since there’s isn’t a single point in the trail where you can’t see a house. Definitely a city hike, but there are other trails that are better in the area. Also it’s an ankle twister if you’re not careful.

One of my absolute favorites!

Give this 5 stars. Perfect weather and challenging in areas. Very rocky.

This trail is not worth it until the developers finish their work building all the houses. Maybe two more years? You have to walk about a mile just to get to the trailhead, and the trail is not that spectacular. The only interesting thing I saw was an abundance of white rock. Just about any other trail nearby and/or in the McDowell Mountains would be a better choice. Don’t bother.

A break in the weather this weekend so we got out and had a great hike. Last hike probably til September I’m imagining. Time to bike!

Nice trail. The best part is the peek and the rest is just ok.

Nice view of the town at the top. Bring water and take advantage of the connecting trails.

Bring lots of water! We started around 7:45 and finished about 11:00. All of our water was gone by the end (7 smaller bottles), however it was over 100 degrees. Unfortunately there were plenty of annoying gnats this time. The trail is beautifully maintained and the views are gorgeous. Definitely worth the effort. Be careful, the last half mile (to the top) is mostly switchbacks, some of which are steeper.

Very nice one. You can actually enjoy the scenery while you hike instead of constantly watching your feet & the scenery on the journey is amazing. Easy enough to take the family in my opinion.

Fun trail, but too many bugs. Very narrow, I would recommend wearing pants. Soon to be private property, Toll Brothers are building homes. You have to walk 1 mile on construction area where you park your car on the street before you start the trail.

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!

Beautiful trail and views. From the top you can see the fountain hills park fountain go off on the hour. Took about two hours total.

Really enjoyed it. Quite rocky with lots of gravel on the trail. Buggy but more so annoying, not bothersome. Was busy but not congested/packed.
