This is my favorite trail within a 50 mile range of central Phoenix. This was my second trip there, and it was even better than the first. That's because the Arizona Sunflower was in bloom, and there were butterflies everywhere. I extended the hiking distance by 1.5 miles by parking at the entrance area rather than driving down the dirt road to the trailhead. The wash area at the end of the trail was mostly dry, so extended the hiking distance by hiking around that area as well.
