This trail is not as steep as we were told. We are 65 and 70 and had no problems. It is a well maintained trail with beautiful views. The Hills were covered in flowers and so beautiful. If you decided not to do the full 6+ miles, you can opt for a shorter trail in the area with just as beautiful views.

I completed the Red Rock Loop Road after visiting Red Rock Crossing for the classic views of Cathedral Rock from Oak Creek. It provides several places to pull over for wonderful panoramic views of the area.

Very nice trail. Well maintained. It wasn't challenging so I could take my mother with me but was still a good walk we could both enjoy. The desert was blooming with beautiful flowers. There are other trails that connect to this trail if you want to extend and do more. Mountain bikers and hikers can share the trail easily, and everyone was very friendly along the hike.

It was a nice walk. It was our second trail in Oracle SP and the first one we did (Granite Overlook Loop Trail) was spectacular. This one is easy and we liked it!

Beautiful day! Love the wildflowers .

Started on Dixie Mountain loop then branched off on Desert Tortoise Trail then back to Dixie. The Desert blooms seemed to be greater at the lower elevations. Easy trail to hike, some loose stones along the way.
Zoom in close up photo of the saguaro cactus to see the owl nesting.

Easy hike at a moderate incline not too hard, easy to stay on trail. Dog friendly.

Great rock face to walk on. Very cool

Great trail to get a quick cardio workout, OR just to get away from city for awhile without making a long drive. I do this trail frequently because it's so accessible. Moderate trail as there are good inclines and towards the top a little bit of footwork is necessary.
Parking can be a pain as with all trails in the Phx Mtn Preserve / Camelback. If you wait it out a few moments someone usually back comes down the trail and it opens up.
