    Emily Krueger reviewed Quartz Ridge Trail (#8A)

    I love this trail, awesome workout that’s rewarded by sweeping views of the valley and tranquility. The first leg of this hike is where all the challenge resides. It’s a steady incline, then a rather steep one where you need watch your steps carefully. There’s a couple natural resting spots along the way if needed to catch breath and hydrate, but once you reach the top, it’s a very easy, leveled trail and pretty well marked. Very peaceful deep into the trail and you are just surrounded by the sounds of nature, pops of the desert bloom colors, and butterflies fluttering around. This is an out and back and the 8A ends rather anticlimactically. Just randomly ends where other trails begin, nothing special about its location or surroundings. On the ascent, it’s rather rocky so be careful on your way back down and enjoy!!

    Gorgeous trail that is well pathed and facilities onsite. Have done a few times, but the last time I did it a couple weeks ago, the desert was in full bloom and it was breathtaking. Get there as early as you can or you are going to park in the back nine and have lots and lots of company for the duration of your hike. For beginner hikers or those who struggle with endurance, Owl’s Rest is the perfect end point as the challenge of this trail begins shortly thereafter and it’s a doozy if you aren’t prepared for it - with an initial modest elevation after Owls Rest, it’s all down hill and then you turn around and go back up up up up up up! It’s tough, so bring your water and set your own pace! You’re not in a race with anyone, you’re on a journey so enjoy it the way that’s best for your body.

    Emily Krueger reviewed 200A Loop

    2 months ago

    Worst marked trail ever (couple helpful markers, otherwise not enough of them and some poorly placed) which was frustrating as we got turned around a couple different times, there’s so many intersecting trails here and it was hard to know which one I was even on. Also not sure why this is called 200A when it’s marked as the 202 from 8A. Grumbles aside, it is indeed a stunning hike with terrific views and just enough to really get the heart rate going. Lots of loose rocks on most of the trail and the trail itself edged along a rather steep view down at some points so take mindful steps and bring a little extra water in case you get lost as all heck like we did midloop
