Fairly difficult short Trail to one of the summits on the Dixie Mountain Loop. Great views from the top as well as a birds eye view of the gravel pit below.
If you bring a dog beware of the cholla! My dog got too close to a cholla and got spines in his nose and tongue. It was awful. It took pliers to get them out.
Great views and a nice work out.
This is one of three summit trails in this part of the Sonoran Preserve. It is only accessible from the Dixie Mountain Loop Trail. Obviously being a summit trail it is strenuous but you are rewarded with awesome views of the valley and the gravel pit that is immediately to the west.
A small memorial has been built at the summit.
