Short and quick. Mostly flat with one short incline. Not many people at 5:45am.

ok trail- was pretty heavily trafficked for mid day mid week. tons of bikers you have to look out for. made it a little more interesting by continuing down Pima a bit til it met National, then doubled back and made the loop with Beverly Canyon to Desert Classic. I took a little detour at the saddle up to the ridge before heading back down. great view on a day with low clouds and a little fog. probably wouldn’t do it again only because it was so overpopulated.

Great 2 miles. Easy but nice views. Good trail to try out new backpacking gear on. Hiked around 9:30.. felt great and not too warm yet. Bring water still!

Great trail. So much to do at South Mountain and you can connect to pretty much the entire park from this entrance. Only downside is that there’s usually a lot of people at the trailhead and parking can be kinda crazy. But it’s a beautiful scenic area with a lot of ups and downs which makes for a more challenging run because your legs can get pretty tired right from the beginning after you climb up to the peaks.
