    From the Adero Canyon Trailhead parking lot, the Promenade Trail begins after the gate. It follows an old jeep road for 0.8 miles with scenic views the entire way. The first uphill is the only difficult part of this hike. Once you reach the signposted Sonoran Trails return to the trailhead. If you wish to go further, hike the Lower Sonoran Trail a short distance to the sign posted Scenic Overlook. Return the same way you came.
