Nearly all trails are clearly marked and maintained. Many divergences in the trails offer a wide variety of paths. Lots of mountainous ascents and descents that offer a change of pace for bikers and hikers alike

For an urban hiking experience, this offers a respectable sampling of the desert environment. The trail (formally known as the Charles Christensen Memorial Trail) is actually an 11-mile point-to-point route across the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, between 7th Avenue in the west and Tatum Blvd in the east. As some have commented, navigation becomes tricky in the Dreamy Draw area with vague signage and numerous social trails hampering route finding. Otherwise, a pleasant outing.

Great all purpose trail and a go to for our family when we want to get out and hike but not have to drive too far! Love that you are in the middle of the city but you can't even tell!

Pretty easy hike. I would suggest parking at North Mountain Park visitor center, would have been helpful to talk to someone who was more familiar with the trail, and probably a safer place to park our car.

I've been riding this park since the late 80's and I love it! It is well marked and you can go out for an easy 4 mile loop or do the whole trail from end to end and back for a ride that will challenge the best! Add Shaw Butte for a long climb to top off a "hard" ride. Please remember to use headphones at a volume that you can hear others and use trail etiquette so we can all continue to enjoy this awesome network of trails.
