Overview

This is a moderately hard loop trail in Cave Creek Regional Park.

Getting Started

The Go John Trail is located in the Cave Creek Recreation Area in Phoenix off of the Carefree Highway. There is a small fee to enter the park and it has well maintained facilities. When you arrive at the trailhead you will see a well marked path to the trail. This moderately hard loop hike is easy to follow and will take you around to the North section of the park where you will get a feeling of being much further from town then you are. As you follow the trial you will experience a good amount of elevation gain and some rocky areas that are fun to hike around. Take your time on this trail and enjoy some amazing views of the desert!

Taking Children

This would be a hard hike for young children.

    Pretty views, varied terrain, that is more difficult if you aren't used to elevation gains and hiking in a desert.
