I took my dog this morning and we had a wonderful hike. We turned around after 1.5 miles since my dog (and the human!) isn’t used to 7 mile hikes. Can be rocky in parts but otherwise it’s a smooth sandy path with great scenery. We’ll be back!

I wouldnt recommend bringing a dog. pick your time wisely. it was overcrowded at 3pm on a Sunday, but a good hike nonetheless.

We aren’t really sure which real trail we took but the views were amazing. The trails were not marked well and our just ended resulting in us being daring and connecting on another section. We ended up finishing below the parking lot we started at and the mountain was named Quechan. The trail had a sign facing the opposite direction that said closed. My GPS had us about a mile total but it took 1:07 so I’m thinking based on maps it was closer to 1.8 or so. Anyways, we should of probably went and turned around but were determined to get all the way around and heck are 2 kids survived too!

I had high hopes for this trail, but I didn't love it. It's a good workout, well-marked, and free. However, the bugs made it unbearable. We had to run part of the way down to get through the swarms of blister beetles. The lookout is full of broken glass and trash. I definitely don't recommend this one. The moderate rating is fair.

Great hike. The only challenge is finding a parking spot. The lot at the trailhead is small.

Took my boyfriend the second time around. We went all the way to the top. Easy trail but can be a little rocky at times.

good quick hiking trail. went clockwise up the foothills that has some good climbing up parts then down the other side and around where the mine is it's just a flat loop back around to the starting point. not bad for a quick workout.

Going up is not what I would consider moderate. It was a good hike.

Great moderate trail! Didn’t trigger my fear of heights much. Lots of rock scrambling.

So many bikes. Ugh

Trail shoes would be great but I did this is running shoes and it was fine. It is literally hiking up stairs almost the whole time. Get there early and on a week day! It started to get packed as I was coming down around 7 am. I saw all ages from about 2yrs old being carried to 75! Take your time and enjoy the views.

I did the hike at 6am, it was an okay exercise. Really beautiful though. On one side of the trail you have a neighborhood the other desert.

Some parts of this trail are best suited for a mountain goat. Good hike but more treacherous than moderate.

A great 2 hour hike. 1hr going up & 1hr heading down at a normal steady pace. I take my children as well, and they love it! Although they end up VERY tired. We've seen pretty flowers and birds. Also some lizards that are black w/an orange tail. It is a good trail to get a good workout in, and connect with nature.

Nice loop to test your legs and cardio before you try one of the longer or more difficult sections of Sidewinder. Usually pretty crowded with hikers but wide enough that all can share without much trouble. I love adding this on to the end of the AW loop ride as you get to climb a bit, get some views, and get dropped right back at the AW trailhead.

Climbs from AW trailhead will test your cardio in a few spots. Some nice longer but gradual climbs too. Once you get to the second summit its a fun descent to Ocotillo. Then some nice flow back to AW Trailhead.

Two longer but mostly gradual climbs with a few steep rocky sections will test your cardio. Descent to Ocotillo and then flow back to AW trailhead is fun.

Climbs to top will test your cardio. Descent is fun as is flow on Ocotillo back to the trailhead.

hot and dry today

Nice short hike, good views. The “loop” is not open!~ half of the trail is closed for repair until 7/2019~ which makes this an out and back currently. Plenty of parking. Very little shade. Popular trail that has lots of loose rock, dirt, rock decay.

Great, challenging hike. One of the first cars parked off Invergordon this morning at about 5:30AM. I would recommend getting started early on this hike, as the temps are starting to spike quickly, supposed to be 99 degrees today. As you get closer to the peak, look for blue dots that are spray painted on the rocks, follow these for the best route to the top. Dogs are not allowed on the trail. I attempted this hike almost 20 years ago and did not make it, so I was pretty excited for the view at the top. Have fun!

Great hike. Took me about an hour, but I stopped for some pictures and toward the end I snuck in a different route to make it a tad longer if a hike. There were a few mountain bikers, hikers and runners. Did it with my dog.
