Sweet little loop! Gradual climb with some fun descent and nice views of Scottsdale and Phoenix. Watch out for Cacti and drink lots of water, it's very exposed and the Sun is relentless. I think this is a fairly new trail so please be kind to hikers, so we can keep this trail open to bikes. Courtesy of Singletracks.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
