Nice, moderate 3+ Mike hike which loops around Thunderbird Mountain between 55th Ave and 59th Ave on Pinnacle Peak Road. Better to park on 55th Ave as there is more parking space, and just cross the road near the signal, which immediately takes you to Cholla Loop.

Moderate rating is accurate. I would suggest hiking the loop clockwise. This will provide a more gradual incline to the summit. Descending is with less small rocks and scree.

This trail offers moderate elevation gain and no shade, but offers great views of the basin. In summer months hit the trail early. Trail is rocky in places.

One of my favorite scenic trails. It’s about 2 hours and a good steady hike and it’s quiet.

This is a great trail for beginners.

Good cardio work out. This was the first time for me on this hike. I will do it again.

A great and well marked trail that took us about 2.5 hours to complete with a few breaks to hydrate. We started at the park trail head (West) at 6 am. A lot of beautiful desert scenery on this moderate-easy trail including a view of I-17 and the CAP canal.

Fun hike, a bit rocky :)

Good day hike. Gets hot mid day.

Loved this hike! So many different types of scenery. Nice that there was water about half way through to refill our bottles.

Love doing this hike before work and see the sun rise from the top! Easy up but don’t think it’s well marked.

love you Trail walk it with my dog once a week

This is one of my regular hikes. There are crowds on the weekend, but during the week if I have a chance I love this trail. It is well maintained and a good workout. It's also great for trail running. Bring your dog, but keep an eye out for chuckwallas, and snakes.

I enjoyed this hike. I wouldn’t call it moderate in difficulty except for the rocky nature of the hike. I’d go again if I lived closer but it wasn’t a hike that I’d travel from the east valley to do again.

We like to hike this trail during the week before 3:00...weekends can get crowded, especially parking.
Today when we hiked this trail, we only had to pick up 2 plastic bottles, so pretty clean considering there shouldn't be any littering.
Great trail for a good workout...easy/moderate- a little over 3.5 miles... watch your footing- loose rock... Happy Hiking!

OK trail with some elevation, but not enough to get a serious cardio workout. Lots of loose rubble which makes for slippery footing at times. I like to hike this loop, then walk across the picnic area and hike the Sunrise, Coachwhip, Ridgeline Trail. Restrooms and water on site.

Got smoked on this trail! SUCH a good workout no matter which trail you take. I’ve mixed it up quite a bit and have gotten really warped! Good times. Be sure to bring a snack or two if you plan on staying for the longer hikes. I definitely got hungry and was desperate for energy.

great afternoon walk.
LOVE the flag at the summit.
Great to sit under the flag and enjoy a bottle of water.
It's classified as moderate to difficult
don't think I'd go that far.
I personally would say easy to low moderate.
There are loose rocks so wear sturdy shoes.

good length for a good workout. elevation increase was also good for exercise.

Very leisurely trail, not necessarily moderate difficulty.

I would rate this one more on the difficult side than moderate. PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOGS PEOPLE and don't leave the little blue baggies on the trail!

Nice long hike. Feels like you’re further out in the wilderness than you actually are. We did see a very large Coyote. But we just hung back until he moved on.

I'm still exploring, but this is my favorite trail to run in the area so far. Great distance, good elevation, plenty of small trails to add on, and beautiful scenery.
