Beautiful hike with moderate incline and well set path. Pay close attention to the signs to stay on the right trail!

This is a great beginner trail that is well worth the hike. There is a-lot of beauty all around from the wild horses that wander to the water to the Beautiful Mount McDowell. The trail features plaques with information about some of the trees in the are which are great but definitely need a bit of maintenance and love. Be careful to pay attention to all of the trail signs as there are many areas where others have blazed their own trails.

I enjoyed this trail. The trail went a few different ways so wasn't sure where the entire loop was but managed to figure it out. More directional signs might be nice. A very clean area and beautiful wildlife. Great for families and out of town guests.

One of our favorite places for a quick, last minute hike in Gilbert. Right next to the public library which has lots of parking - that is usually where we park since the parking lot at the actual park is small.
Great for kids, pets, bird watchers, photographers, everyone. some trails allow horses back riding. Lots to explore& see right inside city limits. If you go in the summer I recommend going early in the day - it is NOT a higher elevation & is just as hot as the surrounding area.
There are bathrooms, campgrounds, a playground, and one pond you can fish in next to the library.

great leisure trail. Took my mom here to get her out. It's perfect for beginners or those that want to spend some time taking a stroll through a preserve.

tough on with all the smaller rockers.

Fairly easy trail but steep in some parts. Once off the trail it's rocky in some parts but with some nice views. I did it at sunrise and sunset.

Great hike. Easy, with nice views and wildlife. It must have been my lucky day...saw 8 horses and a roadrunner. Paths have a lot of horse poo but it's easy to dodge.

I only give this a 3 because I am comparing it to the McDowell mountain trails that I usually do. Loose rock so make sure you wear good shoes! Mostly wash rock. Great workout up and pretty good views at the top.

My 65 year old mom and I went on the star pass resort loop which is right in the area where the starpass trailhead is, and is clearly marked where to go. My mom is not into hiking and did not want to go more than 2 miles. This was 1.1 miles and had mild-moderate challenges and a gradual incline. It was a good workout for her and an easy one for me. The scenery was lush and untouched, away from city noise yet was not far to drive there and had a beautifully paved parking lot with a map. She’d love to go again and bring friends.

Great easy hike with wild horses and awesome bird watching.

Great views and beautiful weather

love this mountain. not a lot of traffic. can be easy or hard and is close to the freeway.

my favorite relaxed walk yet while in Scottsdale. nicely done here & although it's crowded there are a variety of paths and lots to see. we saw a plethora of water birds, rabbits, turtle, humming birds and many other regular birds. Lots of great views for photographers too.

Another great trail for first timers like my wife and I. I hiked it 1 1/2 months after a complete left knee replacement operation. Gorgeous scenery and nice photo opportunities !

Camelback was packed so I came here instead. Was not disappointed. 1 hour car to car.

Very short and next to nothing to look at. Would probably be a nice walking trail with a friend to chat with or music to listen to but definitely not the "hike" I was looking for.

bring a lot of water and food. its poorly signalised too. definately one of the most beatiful hikes i ever did.

Very nice!! Wonderful trail with plenty of shade. You finish at an awesome overlook with panoramic views. 2ish hours round trip if you’re not in a hurry

Of course there’s horse poop everywhere - there’s WILD HORSES everywhere. And it’s awesome!! There’s lots of trails that do lead to nothing but it’s interesting because some of these areas seem to be the shelter for these horses. I took my pup and boyfriend and talked to fly fisherman along the banks. It was an amazing experience AND you should do it. Seeing those horses was magical and sharing it with my family made the whole world disappear. And as for the trash - you can’t control what everyone else does. Just pick it up : be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
