All in all, this was an enjoyable hike. There are several advantages and disadvantages. It is literally right next to the desert museum. You could visit the museum and have your lunch to, because there is a nice picnic area where the trailhead starts. This hike offers nice views, which would especially be nice at sunset. It is not a difficult hike, and I think almost anybody would enjoy it. There are a couple of negatives. I know the listing shows that you can ride a mountain bike. This is true for about three-quarters of this hike. The remaining portion of this hike would be not fun. It would involve steps, sharp switchbacks coming down Brown Mountain towards Gilbert Ray Camp Ground. And there were alot of loose small rocks in the trail, that would make it difficult. I guess if you were a professional mountain biker it would be your cup of tea. But from me being a modest rider, it would likely put me in the hospital. Also one drawback that I noticed was the road noise leading to the desert museum. This is a high traffic area that produces quite a bit of road noise while on top of the peaks. The road noise is not too bad once you get on the flats and the second half of the hike. All in all I was glad to do this hike.
