The Dynamite and Goldmine Loop trail is a 4.7 mile loop hike with scenic natural views in San Tan Mountain Regional Park located near Queen Creek, AZ.

This trail is a moderately-rated hike. It is used for a variety of activities including hiking, mountain biking, running, and walking. To access the trail, it is important to note that there is a $7 cash parking fee, so be prepared!

The beginning of the trail is the most challenging part as it starts with a steep climb. You will, however, certainly be rewarded with stunning views of the natural landscape and an easier stretch as you eventually work your way down the mountain. Before your descent, you'll likely want to stop at the top to take in the scenic view. Wear sun protection and bring plenty of water since there is not much shade on this hike. There are a few benches along the way if you need to stop and rest.

Weekends can get rather busy, so if you wish to avoid heavy traffic, try visiting on a weekday or earlier in the morning. This trail is accessible year-round and is both family and dog-friendly as long as dogs are leashed.
