The main loop trail at Phoenix's Sonoran Preserve provides plenty of options for either a short walk or a longer hike. The elevation gain is accumulated through small ups-and-downs along the trail. Look for the Teddy Bear Cholla forest between mile posts 2.6 and 2.75. The Sonoran Preserve is located in the transition zone to the Arizona Upland, which has higher amounts of rainfall than other Phoenix area hikes, increasing both the lushness and diversity of plant life.

Nice mid length and moderate hike! Some gradual inclines and nice views! Quiet once you're out onto the further part of the loop.

Great trail. Do this twice a month and good combination of scenery and awesome hiking trail. My favorite is when you get halfway there are overlooks of untouched desert.

Good, scenic trail. A little busy on the weekend, but once you get out a ways, it's pretty quiet. Very easy and minimal elevation gain. I liked the rusted out abandoned vehicle in the ditch on the Western side of the trail. I also liked the teddy bear Cholla forest. Pay attention when going through this area!!! I would rate this trail higher if I was on a mountain bike!
