This hike is rated INTERMEDIATE. It's 10 degrees cooler out here, because of the starting elevation and we should be done before it starts to get too hot.


Well do Cholla Mountain from the Browns Ranch Trailhead and hit two scenic points along the way, Cathedral Rock and the Amphitheater. The trail is relatively flat and we will go around Cholla Mountain. The only reason the hike is rated intermediate is because of the 7-8 mile length. The rock formations are similar to Granite Mountain. You're encouraged to bring snacks, sun protection of some sort and should bring plenty of water and sturdy hiking footwear. There will be great scenery. Bring your Cameras on this one!
DISTANCE: About 7-8 miles round trip
ELEVATION GAIN: 500 feet
DURATION: 3 hours
TRAIL STYLE: Out and Back with Loop
DOGS: Yes, if leashed and good hikers in the heat.
FACILITIES: Beautiful bathrooms with water.
DIRECTIONS: Take Dynamite Blvd to Alma School Road and head north about 1 mile to the Browns Ranch Trailhead. There is plenty of parking.
