Do the whole thing. 7.1 miles seems wrong. Go to the pools. Then walk back and do the loop - which by the way isn’t called Moore Creek trail. It has hard parts. It has easy parts.

Awesome wildlife walk. It seems dusk is prime time for animal watching at RMA! The water features are visually refreshing. Super easy stroll.

Gorgeous trail. We did this hike 3/5, no one else was on the trail which was nice. There were quite a few pot holes on the way up but could be avoided by driving slow, so no big deal.

If you prefer steeper downhills, then do this loop in a counterclockwise direction. If you prefer steeper uphills, then do this loop in a clockwise direction.

By far my favorite challenge and hike in Phoenix! Those rocks at the very end you need to climb to get to the summit are just the icing on the cake. Although heavily trafficked, I like how there are multiple spots and cliffs off the main trail (via Dreamy Draw I believe), where you can sit and hang out. 10/10.

Great little hike... there IS a very well defined trail if you start from the equestrian parking lot. As long as you stay low near the base of the hill, no worries... if you want to climb up and over - expect scrambling, loose rock, route finding, and some exposure. Still great views and on the edge of town, so its close if don’t have all day to escape to somewhere farther away.

Very good hike - begins as the Harris Land Preserve and turns into tradition State land about halfway through. The trail starts at a low grade and is pretty relaxing. As it continues, it steepens quite a bit and we found ourselves scrambling a little towards the top. In some of the steeper areas it was very muddy which made the descent tricky but overall a very fun hike. View is good!

Great trail - didn’t see another human, which was kind of the point today. I was glad I had read the reviews that rated it as moderate - definitely not “easy” - but a lovely hike in the woods nevertheless. It’s billed as an old growth forest, but I only saw old growth stumps. The forest itself is secondary growth- beautiful tall trees and lots of ferns and wildflowers. Life goes on!

Such a fun hike. I day hiked the whole thing. Really liked seeing the caning, school house, and the views! Had fun crossing the river a bunch of times along the way. Things to note. -The last part of the road to the trail head is a bit rough ( dirt sections and/or a bunch of potholes) but my Toyota Corolla made it. -the trail is pretty easy but it’s just on the long side. The app said 17 miles and the sign on the trailhead says 10 miles to the schoolhouse. That would be 20 all together... -late winter or early spring is an awesome time to go. I got some rain and it was so much fun.

Probably the steepest hike I’ve ever done. A real butt-burner. Loose gravel and scree in some spots - be careful when descending! Hardly any snow or ice left, spikes not necessary. Mostly sheltered but trail is exposed near the top. Short scramble near the top. Follow signs for the Peregrine Trail, then the orange markers. Incredible 360 views. Fantastic substitute if you’re missing the Incline!

The road leading up to the trail is still a bit snowy. But the issue is the trees that are blocking the road that were blown over now. I do not advise anyone attempting this trail until rangers are able to get out there and clear the road

Neat trail. It starts out with a lot of open area and then narrows. A short part has overgrown shrubs and thorny bushes so wear appropriate attire. Then the terrain changes and the trail turns into dense forest as you descend towards the creek. Once you get down to the creek, continue straight & climb the rocks towards the waterfall (totally worth it!). The ascent back is challenging but only for less than a mile.

Great trail. Great views and not difficult. Not so easy for mountain biking.

Not a true hiking trail. Not so much worth it. More for ATVs and bikes.

Super muddy, but mostly flat so it evens out. The ruins were a nice touch, but certainly not the highlight. There was a nice trail beyond the clearing that led down to the water, providing some nice views.

Nice little trail wedged in between two hills. Nice for running and dog walking.

I love Muscoco- the mix of city and mtn views is incredible. This trail is a decent length with a gradual incline for a lot of the hike. It’s not too difficult, just steady. Bring your spikes!

One of my favorite loops. Go early in the morning and you won’t be disappointed.

Awesome hike with insane views. One of my new favorite hikes in SB County. Went counterclockwise. First ten miles to the deck were well maintained. The west deck for the next seven miles was easy enough to follow, but clearly not maintained recently. Lost the trail in the middle a few times which led to some harrowing cliffs. Not for those who are afraid of heights. Saw a rattler and mountain lion footprints on the deck. Lots of tics! Last 4 miles down were perfectly maintained. More like 21 miles. 7:50 of hiking time.
