beautiful hike, a little difficult to find the actual tree, but some nice people marked the trail with arrows made of quarts showing the way. very cool idea and overall a great hike

definitely go clock wise around the trail. it was gorgeous. it took us 2 hours, the trail is really well marked with white dots. plenty of places to stop and take in the scenery. loved every minute!

There is no loop around the lake, like the app is showing. At some point, get ready to cross over the spill way and at another point, you have to cross the creek. Wear water proof shoes. But the views are amazingly breathtaking.

Nice day hike with great views.

Amazing trails for mountain bikes! I did trail #305

Good hike but it is actually 322 not 332 that you connect with. The dirt road getting to Forest Road 51 is not the best. Also when leaving you can go the other direction and meet up Copper Basin. Beautiful scenery along the two miles dirt road. The roads are best with a 4x4

Great variety of terrain. Go clockwise to get the workout done first. Last mile or so was flat. Map my walk clocked the route as a little over 5 miles.

Really enjoyed this trail. Hiked with our 2 and 4 year olds but there were areas where they needed to be carried down the rocks, or helped. Beginning was a bit boring, the middle is beautiful.
We didn’t bring enough water or sunscreen, bring LOTS of water if hiking this during the warmer months.

We took our boxer and it was a lot more than light traffic. Ran into 5 dogs on the trail and some were off leash. Some pretty scenery though and an easy trail to walk. It was hard on our 12yr old boxer with rocks on the road but we managed to stay on the side of the trail with less rocks.

Beautiful small hike. Unfortunately the falls were not running despite yesterday’s rain. We ended up also doing the 384 loop.

Super beautiful trail, sometimes a little steep, nice views.

very nice hike early in the Morning, great for beginners as the trail is easily traversed for majority of it. there was only a spot or two that was challenging due to having to scale some rocks. that is on the south east side of the lake. rest of the trail is great!
bring a trash bag and help keep the trail clean.

nice lake and trails but not for beginner bike riders. kid friendly for the walking trails. this actual trail is for hikers only.

Not very well marked but it was a beautiful setting when we eventually found it.

trail running

I loved this trail. A did a sunset run/hike around it. The temperature was perfect and there was hardly anyone on the trail. I actually like how it isn’t super clearly marked, and how many different parts you can choose todo and still get to the same spot. The boulders where a good added intensity to my run, even though it was more of a shuffle in those parts.

Overall it’s a beautiful and great hike. Especially at sunset. I’ll have to do a sun rise hike soon.

Starts as trail 9263. Look to the right early on the trail for the 95 sign. That is a loop. Start on the left side for a less intense hike. The return portion has some beautiful views. The first portion stays low and near the creek. Lots of vegetation. Bring some mosquito spray.

We just moved to Phoenix a couple weeks ago and this was my first time trail running. Beautiful scenic views on the way to the lake, great place to swim, not too much elevation change for a first trail run. I really enjoyed this trail, I'll be back! :) <3

Completed this trail twice in the last month or so, once in each direction and each time took around 4 hours. Really is a beautiful trail with plenty of wildlife. Saw multiple deer on both hikes. No water sources on the trail, so bring everything you need. Visiting the fire watchtower is worth the extra 10 minutes for the views.

It was really great experience!! Love it

a great hike with wonderful views..wildflowers up top! bring plenty of water!

Very Scenic little out and back. A bit tricky to find the Falls since Wolf Creek is dry much of the time, but very well worth the effort.

We were lucky because one of the men who made the trail was at the start. It’s a great hike and we were lucky because we made smart choices. I did use google maps which guided us in the right direction. We got to the top of Wolverton then heAded down on a road. At the bottom I saw a trail that headed us back in the right direction. So we took it. Fortunately it was a right choice. The last part was through forest and shaded which was nice. Followed a trail that took us out where we didn’t park but once again my gps took us to our car. 4.2 miles. A little hot on September 15. 2018.

beautiful trail .nice picture's kinda Rocky but do able.

We hiked up the rt side to the memorial for the Hotshots and back down the rt side of the trail. Fantastic hike !

I came out here for Off-roading and it's fairly simple. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone because there is a few difficult areas. I did see 10 other dirt bikes and 5 hikers. It was a busy trail during the time I went.

This is a beautiful trail with amazing views of the lake. This is a nice trail because there is very few people on the trail.

Secluded, great trail. not too much overgrowth. Definitely need a 4WD vehicle.

This trail has some nice views from the top and a lot of wildflowers. Wouldn’t recommend this trail if it has been raining a lot, as you cross the creek several times. Depending on which direction you choose, the loop give two different incline intensities. If you go clockwise, you follow the creek for the majority of the first half with a gradual incline and a few bigger inclines. If you choose counterclockwise, you will experience a much more intense incline for the first half of the loop. We went clockwise and enjoyed a less intense hike!
