San Tan MRP has become a very popular Park due to the housing boom all around it. Rock Peak Wash Trail is strictly a wash connecting the Rock Peak TH to the various trails within San Tan MRP, area is secluded and nice views of Rock Peak. I would bear right on San Tan Trail and check out a map at the Ranger Station to review the Park and it's various Trails from easy to difficult if you don't already have one. The Map will give you the Trails and difficulty so you can make a loop or return to you car. This Park is very popular with Hikers, Bikers and Horses so be aware and show trail courtesies as they arise. The Park Rangers really frown on Bushwhacking, so please stay on designated trails.
