Hike Estrella Mountain's Baseline Trail

Rate this Adventure Arizona Baseline Trailhead

Added by Laura Clarke

This is a great hike in the Estrella Mountains in the Goodyear area and is for any skill level.

Baseline Trail is a 2.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail. This trail features lovely wild flowers and is rated as intermediate. You can use this trail not just for hiking but you can also use the trail for running as well as mountain biking. On the trail you are allowed to bring your furry friends but they must be kept on a leash at all times. I suggest to be very careful out there during snake season as they like to come out and warm up in the sun. Baseline Trail is available all year round but it's recommended to go from March until October.
