Runner Notes

Expect lots of rollers along the way and potato-sized rock bedding.

Description

The Desert Park Trail is a good access trail from the Lifetime Fitness Parking lot to the Windgate Pass Trail, for access to Tom Thumb or the Eastside of the McDowell Mountains. It loops through a neighborhood so be prepared to see other trail users along the way.
