Empty. Hot. North Ridge Trail is closed, so did an out-and-back via Telegraph Canyon trail to Four Corners. It's all hard-packed or loose sand. Rough on you feet. I rarely get blisters, but have at least three across both feet. Breezes in the canyon are few, and mostly hot. Up at Four Corners, there's a nice picnic shelter with portable toilet. Breezes ate cooler and were constant today (July). Temps were low- to mid-90s. Since the trail is a wide truck/dozer trail, it's even hotter. Heat reflects off the trail, and trees are sparse. Look for the windmill in a tree. There's a water trough for horses hidden in the brush. Scared the .... outta me when it started spinning and rotating...like a rusty metal monster coming to life.

Great trail for training if you need heat acclimation without too much elevation change. Not a fun family romp. It's work.

Definitely stop in at the Discovery Center before the trailhead. Air-conditioned, educational exhibits, and very friendly folks. They have maps of the trails, and estimated mileages for out-and-back to several points.

Bathrooms are plumbed. Cold water in the sink. Flushing toilets. I felt spoiled compared to other trails.

Will definitely do this trail and others again. Great way to add mileage without fighting crowds and parking.
