Runner Notes

The trail surface can be a little rough with potato size rocks. Knees up, toes up!!!

Description

This loop begins/ends at the Saguaro Trail, which starts at the Gateway Trail, off of Thompson Peak Parkway.
This is an easy introduction to the park and is a 4+/- mile loop from the trailhead. This park is awesome - Sustainable in every aspect! This trail is the intro to miles and miles of singletrack at the preserve including the Bell Pass Trail, Windgate Pass Trail and Horseshoe Trail. Enjoy!!!
