Love Quartz Ridge, and you can vary it up by starting at Squaw Peak northernmost trailhead, 32nd and Lincoln, or 40th St trailheads.

Nice, quick hike that is located in the middle of the city and way less crowded than Camelback. The hike took me a little less than an hour to complete 8A but I did run parts of it.

Pretty flat, but great for a nice run. Beautiful views and not to steep.
