The trail-head for this hike is at the parking lot at the end of Chandler BLVD. Take Pyramid Trail past Bursera (we made a wrong turn here) to The Lost Ranch Mine Trail. We didn't see any other hikers after we turned off Pyramid trail. The hike goes on for about a mile and is relatively flat. You cross Gila trail in a wash (we made a wrong turn here too) in a 4 way type trail crossing. Stay left into the wash and then stay right. The trail continues to the old ranch ruins. The old ranch house has stairs a clear outline of an old house with a fire place. The trail continues on through the house where the back door would be. From here then hike is well marked, easy to follow and goes straight up fast. The hike up is easy to navigate for experienced hikers, but I would not recommend this for small children. There is some exposure to falling and lose rock. But nothing dangerous if you watch your step. The trail continues up and tops out when it meets national trail. This was a round trip for us back to the parking area. This is scenic hike with old ruins to explore and a good view at the top. I recommend it!

First time I have done this hike. Met two nice girls who just completed the hike and gave me advice and direction. Worked out well. Nice and easy trail. Just stay right!

All was well. It was a little more crowded than I expected for the summer.

Saw several large lizards on the trail.

Hiked in the afternoon around 2pm. It was very hot outside (101). There were many little gnats flying around even with a small breeze. They were swarming hikers. I had trouble when I stopped or started to breathing heavy because they kept flying up my nose or into my mouth. It was unpleasant.

Hiked Thomspon Peak from the Gateway park trailhead. Was a great hike, a little long. Nothing to challanging other than the distance.

This hike was a nice easy trail. Perfect distance to get your heart beating but not a strain. The hike was dog friendly. We saw roughly 30+ dogs on this hike. Our little dog had a lot of fun.

The trail is well marked with great facilities and ample parking at the park entrance.

Weather was a sunny 72.

Very crowded. But not too crowded.

Biked from my house in Gilbert. Good places to park your bike at the trail head.
