Great very scenic trail , want to hike again soon
A beautiful and challenging trail up the mountains from 2,000 feet to 5,600. The trail was well kept and easy to follow. Make a turn of hwy 60 between mile marker 70 and 71. A palm tree on the other side of the highway marks the entrance. The dirt road to the trailhead was rocky, my little volvo good, but I will bring a pick up next time. Fairly secluded, only about one hiker a day according to the registar. Being December it was cold and wind on the top.
This just became my favorite hike around Phoenix, make sure you add this one to your to-do list.
