the hike     Come on this hike if you are looking for a morning exercise hike. The trailhead is Apache Wash off of Sonoran Desert drive. The hike is roughly 7.9 miles, but you can cut it to 6.25 by taking a connector trail.
    Starting at Apache Wash Trailhead, we’ll take the Apache Wash Trail to Badger Brawl. Continue on Badger Brawl, then take the connector to Cliff Walk. Cliff Walk connects back to Badger Brawl, effectively making a lollipop. The trail has very little elevation change, but we’ll move at a good clip to stay warm.
