    Great off-roaring trail. One very tough obstacle in the beginning. Lockers recommended.

    Nice, quick and easy hike just under 5 miles. $7 self pay parking. Check out the graves then head up a steep graded, 500+ ft elevation climb up Goldmine. Nice mix of city and mountain views. Head down the other side then continue the loop for some rolling hills. Stay right at junctions to a steady light grade back up around Dynamite trail. Steady light grade back down to parking.

    Sweet trail! I wouldn’t recommend a solo trip through here. Bring lots of water. Make sure vehicle is up to par before trip. Water crossings could be high/deep after recent rains. Lots of sand and ruts. We clocked about 12 miles and took us about 2.5 hours in a lifted JKU with 33s. No lockers.

    Spring of a wet year was a great time to make this hike. Water everywhere - flowing creeks and springs. We brought a filter and so had plenty to drink. Some things to watch out for: Water crossings - the rocks weren’t super slick but any time you cross it can be dangerous. Going to the cabin means 20+ water crossings, all easy wades. Poison ivy - plenty of this seen along creek banks. Snakes - saw 2 Arizona Black Rattlesnakes on different parts of the trail.

    Hieroglyphics Trail 4/5/19 A great short hike for the early morning or evening. The view down the canyon with setting sun is excellent. Trail is rocky but not too steep. Rate trail easy/moderate due short distance.

    We did this hike on 2/16/19 and the trailhead was open. This is an excellent hike with unique terrain compared to the surrounding areas, due to it's higher elevation. We took our dogs and so only hiked to the saddle and enjoyed views of the peak. It was chilly and a tiny bit of snow was falling.

    Absolutely beautiful hike. The West section of the trail is especially incredible. Finished the whole thing in about 4 hours. A great day hike if you’re up for it.

    This is not an easy trail - more on the hard side of moderate. . Not sure who rated it but it’s pretty steep and rocky. Not a bad hike but very busy - lots of waiting for opposite direction traffic as it’s narrow in many places.

    Water was flowing at almost every creek crossing and flowers were blooming. I led a group from Valle Del Oro Hiking Club to cut back intrusive vegetation especially cat claw and thorn bushes as well as cactus. You should find the trail in great shape.

    This is a short but challenging hike because of how steep it is the majority of the way up. There are jagged rocks which make for an interesting and non boring hike. I do not know why this is rated as easy, but it is not easy.

    Our group of 5 hiked this route clockwise from First Water. Our first of 25 creek crossings began at the intersection of Boulder Canyon and Second Water just below Battleship Mountain. With all the rain we’ve had the creek was running high and fast, with many deep pools. After climbing up Cavalry Pass and down into March Valley we had many more crossings of LaBarge, some more difficult than others where there were no boulders to hop across on. Once we climbed up Bull Pass and back across Boulder Creek East and West again, the crossings of First Water were easy, but still had flowing water. This is a long, but scenic hike passing through diverse flora with great views of Malapais Mountain. I would not recommend it in wet conditions unless creek crossings are an enjoyable challenge. Not many plants were blooming, the trail was muddy and mostly clear of growth.

    Great, quick out and back. Fairly busy after a rainfall. The waterfall was flowing which was cool. Great hike to bring your dog with. Terrain better than most for their paws.

    A nice and relatively easy trail circling around a small mountain in Apache Junction. Some very nice views of the Superstitions from the North side of the trail. Quite a few side trails as well. One negative is there’s a lot of houses/buildings around the mountain, so you never really feel completely in nature. Still, a nice hike to do on a weekday night.

    This is one of the best day hikes from Phoenix if you're looking to skip the parking woes and crowds of Camelback or something a bit more interesting than Usury. It's about like Flatiron, but a little less dramatic. Not one for the summer months. A part of the trail goes along the Arizona Trail, making it fun to dream about taking a much longer walk.

    Great short hike with nice views. Not too crowded on a weeknight. I found it to be in the easy to moderate category. Hiked at sunset.

    I've hiked thousands of miles in Arizona over the years but at only 7ish miles (round trip), this is the most difficult hike I've ever done in Arizona. The last mile or so to the top, has some hand over hand climbing involved that will make many hikers uneasy. Remember, going down is much more difficult then going up. I would not advise this hike in the rain! Having said that, the view from the Flatiron was amazing!

    This hike is an excellent “fitness hike” but if you’re wanting a hike with beautiful panoramic views etc, there are better choices imo...the signage is excellent! The first 3.5 miles (counterclockwise) represents the lions share of elevation for this hike, though there are ups and downs after that but nothing too intense. Bring sunblock! Happy hiking!!

    Good quick hike. Little bit of everything. Views are great. Trails very rocky but well traveled.Took the pup with and he loved it. Should look into dog booties during the summer to prevent pad burn. Keep going for the tougher flat iron.

    This is an easy to moderate trail. It is easily accessible from the city. The trail is rocky, so wear a sturdy shoes. Also as with many other hikes in the area, it is exposed to the elements. We did it on a sunny November afternoon and still got temperatures around 80F. Make sure you have enough water, especially when hiking on a warmer day.
