Great trail.....actually been hiking this for years. MTB TIME........Created a loop I didn’t see on AT. Parked at 105th park at Queens Wreath Lane, grabbed the Talieson “trailhead” off 105th, connected to Quartz Trail, ending back at park.

No water like on photo. In between houses for 95% of time. Nice view of the mountains. Rocky - careful if running

Great trail- well marked. The address is completely wrong, you have to go to Losy Dog Wash Trailhead and follow the Teleisin Overlook trail. About 2 hours to complete. Out and back in the same trail. Great views. Dog and kid friendly

Fairly uneventful trail winding between branches of the local neighborhoods. If you’re looking for a quick access, light-duty trail, this is for you.

Fairly easy. We hiked on New Year’s Day and it was nice and solitary.

Similar to quartz trail runs through Mcdowell Mtn Ranch into the preserve. Does make a decent easy loop from Westworld when combined with the Quartz trail. Can pick up from the parking lot of Mcdowell Mtn Golf Club as well. Gets a fair amount of use by mountain bikers
