Overton Trail Loop, located in Cave Creek, Arizona, is a 3.58-mile loop trail that offers a moderate level of difficulty for hikers. The trail is well-marked and features a variety of terrain, including rocky sections and sandy washes. The trail begins with a gradual incline, leading to a more challenging ascent to a high point that offers panoramic views of the surrounding desert landscape. The trail is known for its unique rock formations, including large boulders and jagged cliffs. Hikers will also pass through a dense stand of saguaro cacti, a distinctive feature of the Sonoran Desert. Wildlife sightings are common, with potential to see creatures such as javelinas, coyotes, and a variety of bird species. Hikers should be prepared with plenty of water, especially during the hotter months, as there is little shade on the trail. The trail is open year-round, but the best times to hike are in the cooler months of fall, winter, and early spring. Hiking boots with good traction are recommended due to the rocky terrain. The trailhead is easily accessible, with ample parking available.
