The highlight of this trail include views of the large boulder formations toward the top of the loop. It also offers the chance to see wildlife along the trail. It’s found in the South Mountain Preserve area owned by Wildlands Conservancy.

Getting Started

Taking Children

The orange loop can be a good hike for children because of the length. However, be prepared for rocky sections and muddy terrain after rain and snow.
