Did the trail counter-clockwise, did not see a single person on the national part. Having to tackle the Bursera climb at the end took every bit of gas I had left in my tank... Exhausting but incredible views in all directions.

There are a lot of unmarked trails in this area. If you go to https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/southmtntrailplan you can find maps with the extra trails on them
