Great trail in the Phoenix Mountains Park. There are many great trails here. I parked at the 40th and Shea TH because it's close to home. This is a good trail because you can view the Squaw Peak area without a steep hike. It is good for beginners. It is pretty flat except near the saddle where the massive Quartz boulder is. Just watch out for mountain bikers!

Pretty steady trail, definitely good for bringing non-experienced hikers or children. Nice parking lot, bathrooms, water fountain
