Had fun. Was a great hike, had my 2 1/2 yr old in a kid carrier backpack. Did a little more than the Treasure Loop Trail, cut across to the middle of Siphon Draw. Was awesome!

Beautiful, easy hike. Weather was great, we are from Oregon and don't get this kind of weather in January!

In the summer this loop gets very crowded, however It's a good trail to take younger kids or older parents as it has benches dotted along the mostly easy path. Rating a trail is subjective, what is easy for one person may be difficult for another, I've seen plenty of people huff & puff their way up around green rock (that's where the loop goes). Nice views from on top and a bench to sit and enjoy them. It's a great trail for a moonlight hike when there's a full moon and the city lights offer a different perspective. On clear days (and nights) you can see all the way to downtown Phoenix. Anyone in reasonable shape should be able to complete this loop in approx. one hour, not counting stopping for pictures etc. This trail requires a fee to the Lost Dutchman State Park of $7.00, however, if you want to forgo the price of admission, you can park at the Mining Camp Restaurant, hint: park in the southwest corner of the large parking lot, (this is also alternate parking for Siphon Draw and Flatiron trails) and hike up prospector view trail which joins the treasure loop at the top behind green rock This alternate path will extend your trip by about two miles for a total of 4.5 miles.

Loved it but did not think it should be rated easy if you go up the northwest side of the trail.
