“This singletrack trail features vistas, climbs, and various trail options without the parking fee.”— Andrew Atencia
Cacti, rocks, and bees do become a normal occurrence on this loop. There are a few sharp turns that require you to watch your footing and there are some short, steep sections.
Be aware, as other trails split off in many directions and it can be easy to take a wrong turn. This trail has a good deal of exposure along mountain faces, which can become dangerous, but are mostly manageable. There are a few bench spots and sitting areas, which are good for photo opportunities as they overlook the community.
The best time to hike this trail is in winter - spring. FINS, Estrella Mountain Regional Park, and White Tanks are others to try out in the area.
