  • Man what a great palce to hike. Put your good walking shoes on, get some water and sun screen and go for a hilke. You will enjoy it.
  • The trails here are well maintained and well marked. There are trails of varying difficulty so you have plenty of options for whoever you may want to bring and if you make the effort for one of the more difficult trails, you are rewarded with a stellar view of the valley atop one of the peaks of the San tan mountains.
  • Love riding my Mike and my horses here! Beautiful views! Great place!
  • Great place to take star photos because it is far enough out of the city to not be hindered by the light pollution. Also a great hike
