With this route, you'll spend more time exposed on the lower slopes; which means it'll be hot in the summer daytime. This route is also used by wranglers giving horseback rides from Spring Mountain State Park and Bonnie Springs, so you'll have plenty of company on this trail. Once you walk up the rich red soil and drop down behind the hill, you'll be in the area called the "haunted canyon". This is a wonderful spot, full of beauty and solitude (except on weekends), and the best part is you still have the creek ahead of you. There are many shady trees and great boulders for picnic spots, just be sure to haul your trash out with you.

Great views, wild burros, and a somewhat challenging trail. Wouldn't be my first recommendation for a tourist, but it's free and that counts for something.
