This trail was about 3 miles roundtrip, located near Gold Canyon. The trail begins by the Lost Goldmine Trailhead. I went on a Friday evening and it was pretty empty, but from what I read you need to observe the parking signs because you will get towed/ticketed if you park illegally. It is not a very difficult trail, even when carrying loads of camera gear. I had rented a 100-600 lens to play with for the weekend and was hoping for wildlife (of which I saw none). So I had my camera, a heavy lens, my backpack with 2 other lenses and some water. I would have done much better with just some water and my camera body (5dmkii) with maybe just 1 lens. Most of these pictures were taken with my 24-70 2.8 (which is significantly lighter than the Tamron 100-600). I will say the 100-600 is a great lens, just not needed for this hike. I was happy to see when I reached the “top” of the trail there was some water flowing and many petroglyphs. It is said these Petroglyphs were left by the Hohokam people between 500-1450 AD. More interestingly the Hohokam disappeared from archaeological records around 15oo AD. This is a great hike for kids/families as it is easier and the history lessons involved…and really it’s always good for kids to get outside!
