My introduction to the Northern part of the Scottsdale Preserve. Nice, scenic hike around a couple of small mountains and beautiful desert vistas. The desert was nice and green from recent rains that made the cactus and trees really pop with color. Crowded at the trail head, but once you get further out, you get solitude. My hat's off to the city of Scottsdale for a job well done making these parks so enjoyable. The facilities here are top-notch! I'll be back again for more hikes in the area!
