I rode the new shuttle to stop 8 for restroom and water then continued up to stop 9 and to the trailhead. Once at the top I chose Phoneline trail - a trail that I have admired from years of hiking in Sabino Canyon. I enjoyed the view and the parts of shade. Hiked on an 80 degree day with a breeze and used the last short cut back down to Stop 1

Beautiful trail but definitely watch out out for cacti on the edge of the trail. I learned this the hard way! Not very difficult at all but a lot of road walking on the way back so be prepared for that! Was kinda tough wearing hiking boots for that.

Road to phone line to road back to blacketts. Up and down and back to the car!

This is a great trail in the spring when there’s water in the pools.

The first half hour is a little challenging depending on which end of the actual part of Phone-line you start on. This does not include the Sabino Tram Rd which goes the north part of the trail - or - Sabino Creek on the south end of Phoneline trail. But once you get to the actual trail where it levels off its a nice easy enjoyable 3 miles of breath taking views of nature. Stop and sit on a rock once in awhile and take in the scenery.
