Good hike in the Phoenix Sonoran Preserves. It was a hot day in late May for a hike this long, but it was worth it!
I had never been to Union Peak before, only Dixie in the area. To get there, you take trails like Hawksnest, Desert Tortoise, Valle Verde, Great Horned Owl, and finally Union Peak. I'd come back again on a cooler day after a rain, it must be really beautiful then!
Oh, and the log book at the top was really cool to sign. Nice touch!

Nice views. I would rate as easy not moderate.
