“As good as it gets” for a short, in-city hike. Although it’s short, it’s pretty steep. It provides a good workout in very little time. The road is paved, so no need for hiking shoes. There is no shade or water on the road.

Very pretty little flat walking trails. SO many rabbits, birds and water fowl. Not a hike just a short stroll. Would be very nice place for children.

What's not to love? Pretty and child friendly.

Beautiful

Went at night. great views. steep at times. stairs half way up that are steep. afterwards you can hit downtown tempe

nice short hill of a climb. Took my 4 yr old and 12 yr old along. Perfect views for taking sunset pictures with the city lights and South Mountain in the distance.

There are so many unexpected little stone staircases and hidden views. It’s a secluded little gem.

Beautiful with lots of water flowing. Need waterproof footwear to make the crossings, many side-trail options and birdlife.

Great exercise

Great way to get a workout in! My first time was rough but I did it. My boyfriend made me push it!

Great Trail, can combine with the Constellation loop trail.

For mtbing I rate this 5 stars, but for hiking it is probably 4 stars because it doesn't have high enough elevation to get the really good views that other places do. Other reviews mention 6 dollars for parking, but it is 7 dollars. The weather was nice and there were purple and yellow flowers in bloom. The trail had a good amount of variety, but you'll have to watch out for horse droppings. You can see the ending portion of Rainbow Valley where it meets up with Toothaker at the following url: https://youtu.be/BnM7fuc-fcY

Very nice, mostly flat trail with lots of options for different distances. Great for kids and families, very easy terrain. Lots of bicycles is the only negative.

Easy hike with nice view of the zoo and golf course!

Great daily.

Try it at night. Views.

Such a pretty hike

Really enjoy this gem. Not quite 3 miles and 750 ft of gain. Its a quick hike that depending on pace can be a stroll up the hill or a nice cardio workout. I hiked it at night and the city skylines provide amazing views.

Difficult to find parking, but great views of Tempe after a steep climb.

Beautiful trail to really help one appreciate what Arizona has to offer.
Challenging enough to keep it interesting, without any real risk of injury.
It's closer to 8 miles, so don't head out to late in the day, and make sure to bring a map. There's a couple spots where one can feel turned around.

Nice, flat stroll on the lake. There are a lot of electric scooters sharing the path so be thoughtful.

Nice and easy...

Easy walk

easy trail. beautiful and expansive views.
