I loved it! I like challenging hiking trails, and this one was. I only made it half way up. Was interesting to find all the power lines cut down, yet not removed. Will go again for sure. Views were breathtaking.

Great little trail! Took small kids and it was not bad at all. Not much traffic and beautiful views.

Very busy trail. A lot quieter during the week but easy and has water crossings very pretty.

Nice hike, seemed to be steepest during the initial assent. Fun connector to Sycamore Reservoir and further trails. Great views throughout!

great hike! but if you bring your dog, boots are highly highly recommend. the terrain is very rough and will quickly cause pad damage. also, if you hike during summer, be prepared for your self and dog. Not too many sppts for shaded breaks, heat can really take a toll on your dog if you are not careful.

This easy hike had some surprising, beautiful rock formations, including some places to scramble around and explore. It pretty easy, too, for our older dog to manage. I would definitely go again.

Great hike/run! Spectacular views leaving desert floor and Saguaros behind to high desert. Amazing options to connect up to AZ trail as well. Make sure you have good shoes.

too crowded but if u take some of the side loops that show up on this map it's more scenic & fun.

I hiked both the North and South trails.

South trail is where the stone bridge (seen in the photos) is located. The ramadas and toilets are also located here. The toilets are in piss-poor condition (pun intended), and the actual trail is not clearly marked. These are the reasons for my low rating.

North trail is where the petroglyphs are located. You must hike through the wash and under the overpass. The petroglyphs are on a low rock face, on the left, near the end of the wash.

This is my “go to” trail for a good wheeling experience. The three feathers obstacle and big hill just before you get to it are a lot of fun. You can spend a full day out on the trails and checking out the fall. If you have a 4x4 it’s your passport to this diamond in the middle of the desert!

Completed this great trail in a stock 4Runner with AT tires. Needed spotting coming down the 3 Feathers obstacle to avoid dented doors. We came across multiple boulder ranges with rocks 10"-12" in size and quite a few water crossings. When you get to the Chiva waterfall, you can boulder hop to the left or stay to the right for an easier path to walk to the falls. This was a great run.

Great small hike in beautiful country!

Beautiful trail and easy to follow.

This area is too crowded for my taste. Great if hiking alone, I suppose, since there are plenty of people around.

Definitely tough! I would not bring dogs and make sure you have proper footwear. Very steep and I hope your cardio is on point. Had a blast and loved the challenge.

on Nirvana Trail

You cannot enter the power line, nirvana, and honey bee trails at N. Quiet Rain Dr. There is a security gate. You cannot park on the next street over and walk to the trail because there is a sign posted at the trail reading:" only for the residents and says no trespassing."

It's our second time hiking up from the hwy and it was much better. Not hard anymore. We hiked to the canyon where there was nice little falls. Just under 7 miles RT. the temp was in the high 30s starting out and stayed nice and cold until we got down and it was a little warm. Really enjoyed the workout.

This trail is flat and easy I recommend it for all ages. But know you might get your feet wet because you cross a creek twice. This trail is a nice walk and it is very relaxing.

Really easy

This is a beautiful, mostly very easy trail with one steep hill to get down. It is also very crowded with people and dogs and horses, which can be fun or stressful or fun depending on how everyone gets along.

Should be rated easy.

This is a really beautiful trail! Though I would not consider it a moderate level at all. It's very easy. The hike also is in scenic view of multiple houses so if you are looking for a hike that feels like you are deep in nature and very secluded this is not that hike. But I can say it still has very open and amazing views, so many beautiful saguaros and views of mountains!! If you are look for a hike that is actually moderate ( like I said this hike is NOT moderate it is easy ) I would suggest the lost arrow trail. Though it's very short but I did go down that path and it was a bit more difficult.

Loved this whole trail system.

Great winter hike. We went with our kids and it was great.

Great views of Eastern Tucson. Sadly no flowing water but a great hike for dogs.

Great hike in late January. The first mile is definitely straight uphill, but has beautiful scenery with saguaro cacti and rock formations. The progression from climb to canyon views to grasslands made for a fun hike. Ends at an abandoned prison camp but walk another 0.2 miles to reach a developed area with stables, picnic table and bathrooms. The trail is peaceful and serene and we encountered only a handful of other people along the way.

Very easy but very hot. Many kinds of desert plants along the trail.

$7 fee to enter park.

Super well marked. Lots of additional trails all connected so you can go as long or short as you want. Great find.
