This 8-mile trail walk is an intimate desert experience, with close-up
views of brightly colored rock formations, varied Sonoran vegetation,
and the natural history of the Basin and Range province.
High points along the trail offer sweeping views of five mountain ranges:
the Superstitions, Goldfields, Userys, McDowells, and Mazatzals.
See Trail Map and
Park Web Site with trail map.
We will hike the loop counterclockwise and get the rocky part finished while we are fresh on the trail.
