Good easy hike in terms of elevation. A less traveled portion of the Maricopa Trail.

Nice hike but the trail was flooded at 3 points and brought us by multiple gun ranges so that for a good portion of the hike we could hear regular shots in the not too far distance.

We started at the Lake Pleasant trailhead. This is a very easy trail. We only went out 3 miles and back again. Almost the entire trail followed a chain link fence. We turned around out of boredom. However we did see a couple of herds(?) of javelinas.
