The Bittersweet Trail is an entrance to a complicated (but well signed) network of trails, or an out-and-back. It’s lovely though you can see streets & bear city noises much of the route.

Awesome hike in early morning. Good one to do if you haven't be out for a while.

Lovely morning hike. The best route is to go counterclockwise. Keep bearing left and it is hard to wrong. Trail changes name a couple of times but left is the way to go. Look for the crested saguaro next to the trail on the inward leg.

The hike was an easy one person wide trail. I dealt with zero traffic on the hike so that was nice. I didn't think that the signs were very well marked which ended up cutting my loop short by about a mile. I ran the trail with my dog who surprisingly didn't catch any cactus. Watch your shins for cacti and use your AllTrails app to guide you and you should be in for a good hike.

I liked the trail a lot, but the signage stinks and I think is confusing.
