The Quartz Trail is a 1.4 mile trail in Cave Creek Regional Park that is accessed from either Go John or Slate trail. It's worth it to weave along a ridge to see some amazing views.

Absolutely one of the best trails to see beautiful quartz vertical slate and jasper outcroppings. Connected to go John trail excellent challenging trails. You do share the trails occasionally with horses
